We thank thee for a Prophet!

Last night our beloved Prophet Spencer Gordon B. Hinckley died at the age of 97. He was a man of great integrity, compasion, faith, wit, and humor. I loved when his doctor told him to walk with a cane so he did...he carried it everywhere he went...rarely letting it touch the ground. However, most of all I will never forget the sweet testimony building experiences I have had with him as the prophet...he truly was a man of God. Although it is hard to think that I won't hear his voice from the beautifully carved pulpet (made from a walnut tree taken from his back yard) I feel peace knowing he is with he sweetheart whom he missed dearly the last few years. I know they loved each other so much. I will never forget the life and legacy he has left behind.

Hey Lisa. I didn't know you had a blog. I will add you to my list. Those pictures are all so cute. Wish we lived closer so you could get some of our new arrival. Hopefully we'll see you soon, and I hope you don't mind I'll be checking in regularly now!
