We will miss you :(

June 23, 1910- Jan. 27, 2008
I will post the answers to the meme later, but first I wanted to share the news that President Gordon B. Hinckley, the 15th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, died tonite. He was 97. My sister-in-law in Idaho called about an hour after he died to share the news with us. Although my 1st reaction was shock/sadness because he is not here with us anymore, I am so thrilled he is with his wife again. He loved her so.
He is an amazing man. I met him in 1995 shortly after his call as The Church president. He talked to me and talked to Tristan who was less than a year at the time. His sweet spirit was just so evident. He touched the lives of so many and he will be missed. I love you Pres. Hinckley.

Imagine the people he's meeting now. It blows my mind to think who he's rubbing elbows with, right this minute.

He and his wife were such a great example to us all. I love them both and glad they're together again!

I am sad because I love him and will miss him very much, but I agree with what everyone else said! :)

The picture of him with his sweetheart is precious.

He truly was an amazing man. What a great picture of he and Sister Hinckley--isn't it wonderful to know they are together again.

How wonderful that you got to meet him. I would have loved to have had that experience. I did get to know his granddaughter pretty well. She was Kim's Kindergarten teacher. She is as wonderful as he is. Genuine and loving.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of his fellow Mormons and his family.

I am so very sorry, Tori.

I didn't know we had the same pictures of President Hinckley on our blogs. We must be on the same brain wave this morning.

He will be greatly missed! :(
