Sad day

Yesterday the most amazing man passed away.

Surrounded by his family, he succumbed to old age....the most poetic way to pass.

He was the first man that, while I've never met, inspired in me a ardent and true faith. It was under his guidance that I matured spiritually from a child to an adult.

And while I'll miss his leadership, his teaching and his love I'm pretty stoked that he got to see his wonderful wife last night. She died a few years ago and it was clear that he missed her every second since.

Thank you, President Hinckley for your life long commitment to serve. I appreciate all you've done for me personally.

I agree with you. We were so lucky to have had him as our leader most of our lives.

I thought of you when I heard the news. I glad you got the opporunity to be inspired by him. I know he was a hero and an inspriation leader for many.

Elder Monson will be just as dynamic. He is a Prophet. Remember who is in charge.
