President Gordon B. Hinckley

I was saddened last night to hear of the passing of President Gordon B. Hinckley. He was a great prophet and well loved by everyone. I know that he is happily reunited with his wife. I really appreciate all that he accomplished during his years of service as the prophet and the years before when he took on much of the workload for the previous prophets. He really was a great outstanding man.

This morning on Good Things Utah they had a wonderful tribute to President Hinckley. I watched and cried and remembered all the great things that he did. One of the ladies on Good Things Utah (Nicea Degering) said: "You knew he was advancing in age, but I don't think any of us knew he was this close." They also mentioned that a lot of the schools (junior high's, high schools, and college's) are wearing white today in honor of President Hinckley. What an honor that is! I am so grateful for his example and all that he did.

He was a great man. I heard about all the kids in the schools dressing up in white shirts and ties and such...That is a great tribute to how much he influenced our youth of today.
