Nearly 13 years...

Gordon B. Hinckley

  • A couple months shy of 13 years ago, this great man was called of God to serve as the prophet, seer, and revelator for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
  • After church on Sunday, I heard word that He had passed away just hours before.
  • I didn't completely believe it.
  • The little child that exists in all of us, no matter what age, told me it couldn't be so.
  • Sadly, it was.
  • President Gordon B. Hinckley passed away Sunday evening at home with his family at the age of 97, making him the oldest living prophet the church has ever had.
  • Now he is not only with Heavenly Father again... but he has now rejoined his wife and eternal companion. How great is that? I think it's absolutely wonderful.
