Tribute to a Man of God

Gordon B. Hinckley, I will miss you.

Several years ago I sat on the front pew at a youth fireside in San Diego, right in the middle, and you looked me in the eyes several times as you spoke. It was then that I received a personal witness of your prophetic calling. You seemed to glow as you counseled us youth, imparting of your great wisdom.

Your sense of humor has been an inspiration to me. Despite numerous reasons to be sad, pessimistic, and troubled, your smile and wisecracks lit up the lives of millions. Your exemplary life stands as a testimony of what a witness of Christ truly is.

God be with you ’til we meet again.

    For those that like that picture of President Hinckley (as do I), you can order a copy from the photographer that shot it. Apparently many others across the world also have chosen it as their favorite picture of him.
