So missed

Yesterday, President Gordon B. Hinckley, the 15th president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints passed away at the age of 97. When I heard the news from my friend, I couldn't help but cry because of the love I have for this man. He was just amazing. Though I never met him, I had the privilege of seeing him a few times and I clearly remember feeling the spirit as soon as he entered the room. I know he was a prophet of the Lord-I have no doubt of that. I'm grateful for the countless hours he worked on our behalf. He was someone whose words I was drawn to. He taught with the Spirit and was inspired in everything he said and did. I will always treasure his teachings. He was also someone who always had something clever and witty to say. He always made us laugh. He had such a special spirit and the world won't be the same without him. Even though we will miss him here on Earth, I know there is someone in Heaven who has been missing him even more, his wife, Marjorie, who passed away a few years ago. I know last night must have been a joyful reunion for them both. We love you President & Sister Hinckley-thank you for devoting so much of your lives to serving the Lord and doing so much for us. You will be sorely missed!

He really was incredible. I loved how sweet he was, and that sense of humor. What a loss, but I am so happy for him and his wife, truly.
