Our Prophet

Nothing can be said to explain what a great man our prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley was.  He will be missed terribly by all of us who were led by him.   Brett and I agree that he was "Our Prophet".  He signed Brett's mission call and was the prophet as we both gained our testimonies.  I loved his strong firm belief in the gospel.  He led with humor, humility, and complete dedication.  I am so happy for him to be in heaven with his sweet wife, but I will miss him.  We are better for knowing him.

He really was our prophet. We will always remember the effect that he has had on our young adult lives. We will miss him.

I love how he was always so upbeat and positive. He didn't use scare tactics to motivate us and I think it was a most effective way of getting the message across. I will really miss him, but I, like you am glad he is with his cute wife. I hope he gets a little bit of rest before he goes on with the work!

You said it best and I too think of him as my prophet. I don't remember any other ones, but him. I will miss him so much, but also he is in a place where people are rejoicing to see him again. Thank you for calling us last night to let us know it was good to hear about his passing from Brett.

We are so sad because we miss him, but are happy for his passing. We know where he is.

Totally agree. I feel a lot the same for him as I did when my grandpa Rex passed last year; I know that he is now with the person he loves the most!
