We Will Miss Him

We as a church and I personally will miss President Gordon B. Hinckley so much. He was so full of warmth, charm and humor. Yet he wore the mantle of the prophet so well, in a spiritual, wise and dignified manner. What a great example he was for all of us. I will always be grateful to have been alive during the time of his presidency.

I will miss him but it's hard to be too sad, knowing he's back with his sweetheart and remembering how he has missed her the past few years.

Thank you, President Hinckley. We love you, honor you, and now we will miss you.

Well said, but my favorite part is that when you pull up your page it shows President Hinkley and John Denver. My two favorites!

Great words, Jan. Such a somber time, missing him, but rejoicing for him all at once.

I love this picture. I am going to save it. I am happy for him too. I think President and Sister Hinkley are the best example of how a marriage should be. We are sure going to miss him.

I agree! I will miss him tremendously. I think he was so amazingly sweet, and I loved his sense of humor. I am so happy for him and his wife to be reunited, though.

I sure do love that guy. I will miss him terribly. But I'm so glad he's with his sweetheart...and even more glad that we have that knowledge!
