Prophet, seer, and revelator are just a few of the wonderful things about Gordon B. Hinckley, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He wasn't an ordinary man, although he could make anyone at ease being in his presence, but I rather think of him as an incredible and magnificent individual! Through his almost thirteen years as prophet, he has done so many great things for our church including expanding the number of temples in operation.
President Hinckley had an immeasurable and undeniable amount of faith and willingness when it came to serving Heavenly Father. His passion was one that I have always admired and loved. He lived a long and fulfilling life of 97 years and I can only imagine how beautiful the reunion was between he and his wife and he and his Savior. We love you and will miss you President Hinckley.
