End of an era

June 23, 1910-January 27, 2008
I believe it's true, that the prophet of your youth is the one you will revere the most.

Jessie just showed me this. It was shocking. I just thought he would continue to working forever. It's good to know he's with his wife again.

I will always remember him as My prophet. He had such a great sense of humor. What a wonderful reunion he and his wife will have.

I know, Brad had to remind me how happy he must be now that he is with his wife again.

I was shocked when we turned on the tv! So bittersweet, he was a great man!

It is amazing that he was put into the First Presidency, the year you were born, 1981. I grew up with President McKay in the same way. What a marvelous example in every way for us all. When his wife passed away, he said the love of his life has once again become the girl of his dreams. Finally his dreams have come true. What an incredible person, who did what a prophet is supposed to do - make people want to do what is right and love one another.

What a surprise to hear this last night. We were at my parents and Megan said to us, "I just got 4 texts saying President Hinckley died." My heart just sank. I knew this was going to happen eventually, but he just always seemed to keep on going! What an AWESOME man he was! I too will always think of him as "My Prophet". I also thought the same thing about him and his wife! How exciting that must have been for them!
