We got a call last night from Steve's sister Kim telling us that President Hinckley passed away. I was so surprised when I heard the news, I think there was a part of me that thought he would be our prophet forever. I can't imagine not seeing him speak at general conference. I'll miss his humor, confidence, and optimism. It always gave me such a feeling of peace when he taught us to live with hope and joy. Though I have complete faith that the church will continue to grow and thrive with our new prophet, I will miss our prophet, President Hinckley. It brings me such joy to know that he lived such a wonderful life and that now he is reunited with his lovely wife. What an amazing reunion that must have been. What a great life to live, what an example to us all.
