President Gordon B. Hinckley Passed Today
Beloved Church President, Gordon B. Hinckley, Dies at 97
President Gordon B. Hinckley, who led The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through twelve years of global expansion, has died at the age of 97.I am new to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as you all know, so he is the only President and Prophet that I have any experience with. I didn't know him personally, but from what I've seen of him I've been very impressed with his sweet spirit and compassion. And his quick wit. I was surprised by how funny he was!
I am happy for him, because he is with his wife now, and I know he's been waiting. But, I'm sad for the rest of us, as we have lost a truly unique, effective, and touching leader.
