Our dear sweet Prophet.....Till we meet again...



Well, as most of you have heard by now, our Prophet and President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - Gordon B. Hinckley, died last night. I am saddened, because I will really miss him, yet I know he is happy to be with his beloved wife again. I can only imagine the reunions in heaven right now. I felt such a connection with President Hinckley because he used humor - those of you who know me, know that this is how I deal. He was so sincere and I KNOW without a doubt that he loved me - and in return, I hope I can make him proud, by living a Christlike life, repenting of my sins, and making a better effort to grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful for the life that President Hinckley lived. You all should check out Angie Whitman's blog, she has so many awesome quotes on it, and I couldn't remember him any better than what she's written. She's on my friends link to the right - so check it out, you will feel the Spirit and it will testify that he was a true Prophet. So, he will be missed and loved by so many. I can't wait to see him again someday!
