It is with heavy hearts we mourn the passing of our sweet and kind prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley. President Hinckley was a much loved leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints aka Mormons and he served his Lord so well and faithfully. He came across some difficult social dilemmas such as the gay marriage movement and also saw the increasing popularity of the internet and the impact that and different entertainment mediums had on families today. In his senior years he managed to lead the Church through these types of storms being steadfast and strong. Never did he waver from the teachings of our Heavenly Father. In times of trouble, such as Hurricane Katrina or 911, we members looked to him for reassurance and for comfort and he quickly reminded us of our faith. Though flattered that we felt we needed him, he reminded us what we really needed was to carry on and exercise our faith and live as the Lord has asked us. Uprightly we stand, holding to that sacred iron rod, persevering against lifes storms.
President Hinckley was also a brilliant author and he had such an eloquent way to teach us all. His darling wife is also well-written and was a great leader and example for the women of the church. What a pair!
Though are hearts are heavy at our loss, our spirits rejoice in that President Hinckley is now with our Heavenly Father in all his glory. He has rejoined sweet Sister Hinckley and all others before him. What joy and wonder. What peace this brings.
