Hooray for President Hinckley

Although he will be greatly missed by all the members of the Church, hooray for President Hinckley being able to go back to be with his sweet wife that he missed so much. Can you seriously imagine the return he had back to Heaven??!! Think of all the people there welcoming him back home. That would be an awesome sight to see. After all the hugs, he probably went right back to work!

My favorite memory of Gordon B. Hinckley would probably have to be when I saw him give his famous "Be" talk in the Marriott Center at BYU. I have my original notes to it somewhere. That was a fabulous talk that will be known throughout time as one of the "greats", especially for the youth of the Church. I love you President Hinckley, you will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for all of your inspired wisdom and the love we all felt from you for so many years.

And me too!

Sad for me, and the world which got a little darker when he left it, but hello? Great day for Gordon and Marjorie!

Hi Natalie,

I'm showing Grandma your blog. We too will miss President Hinckley but there are so many memories of him that it will always be like he's still here. Example: All the temples, Conference Center, The B's: Be Kind, Be True, etc. He could never be forgotten.
