A Fond Farewell
It was my mother-in-law who called me last night around 8:30 to let me know that Gordon B. Hinckely, the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, had passed away. I was totally shocked. I have noticed his decline in energy over the past year or so, but thought that we would be made aware of an admittance to the hospital or something. How wonderful for him to have lived such a full, eventful and fulfilling life and pass away without long painful illness or injury. I just wanted to express my love for this wonderful person, and my sadness at his departure from this life.
