Words cannot adequately express the love in my heart for this man, or the joy I am sure he is experiencing reuniting with his sweet wife. He was my prophet, all through my growing up years. I looked to his counsel on many occasions. It was six months before I married my eternal companion that I attended his birthday celebration, and helped nurture a relationship with one of my best friends Wendy, who later joined the church. It was that particular evening that my love for him was strengthened. Even in something seemingly simple as a birthday party, he had this miraculous way of being a missionary.
What a spectacular person he was. How close to our Heavenly Father. What an example of what we all need to be.
We'll miss you President Hinckley!
