Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley

The Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints passed away today at the age of 97.  
 This was a great man - I can't help but get emotional at the thought of him, he was so humble and...amazing.  I can honestly say that this is the Prophet I grew up with - I remember his talks and his work so vividly, he was an incredible man.  He did so much good - so many incredible things for the Church.  How wonderful that he was able to pass peacefully, so joyous for his family.  My thoughts, love and prayers are with his family, the First Presidency and the members of the twelve.

He was amazing wasn't he? My gosh, he was a celebrity! People who aren't even members of the church will mourn him.
