President Hinckley


As I was browsing through blogs today and reading on my church's website, I've just come across so many articles and thoughts on President Hinckley. As most people know, he passed away on Sunday night and I am just overcome with gratitude and love for this sweet and amazing man. I loved hearing him speak at general conference and he has always brought me feelings of peace and comfort in a time when our world can be such a scary place. I am so grateful for the work and service he did for all of us...and I am so happy to know that he is reunited with his wife whom he openly loved so much. What an amazing example. It is has been a neat opportunity for Graham and I to talk with Payton about how we will see him again and because of Heavenly Father's plan for us, we will all be together forever.

We love you, President Hinckley.

We recently moved from Saint Louis to Utah. It will be so nice to be able to go to his funeral tomorrow. We will bringing the children. I am so greatful that we have the oppurtunity to go. We would not ahve been able to if we were still in Missouri. I really enjoyed reading all of your heart felt thought.
