A Tribute ...

to the life of an amazing man.


97 years old.
What a wonderful example he was to all of us.
He was so full of life and had so much faith.

When I think of President Hinckley I think of temples.
He was so determined to get so many people to the temple and get work for the dead accomplished.

Each time I went to conference while he was the Prophet, as he walked into the conference center the audience would go silent. He would then wave at the audience with his cane. I hope I have that much energy in me when I'm in my 90's.

He traveled so many places and was respected by everyone.
I am truly going to miss him. He has been the prophet for the majority of my life. I know President Monson will be a wonderful Prophet. It's just hard to see him pass. I find peace in knowing that he is with his wonderful wife, Marjorie Pay.

Times like this always make me think and it gives me comfort to know what lies ahead for each of us as we leave this life. I can't imagine living my life without knowing that it is eternal. I am so grateful for the knowledge I have that we are in this life for a purpose. I am grateful to know that as we each pass we will be united in heaven. We will live eternally with our families.

I will forever love and miss President Gordon B. Hinckley.

I'm going to miss him. He was such a wonderful man! I keep thinking how great it must be for him to be with his wife right now.
