Sunday night we were hanging out with "K" and "S" when "R" came upstairs and told us that President Gordon B. Hinckley had passed away. This was about an hour after it happened. The news changed the mood of the evening to a more serious one, and we got on our phones to see if our families knew. We were a little sad because we will miss him, but I am sure he isn't sad.
President and Sister Hinckley worked to have an amazing marriage. They are a great example to me of treating people well and of what matters most in this life. I'll always remember when she passed away -- it was the day before we got married. Now they get to be together doing the Lord's work again.
Here is a great story about him that Sarah has on her blog (you don't mind, do you?):
Of course, besides being a good husband and friend, President Hinckley truly was called of God to be an apostle and then to lead His church. It has been neat to hear on the radio, on TV, and read online people's feelings about President Hinckley and how much he inspired them. He taught what we needed to learn. I know that he was a prophet, seer, and revelator.
