Just this evening, the vigorous, humorous, intelligent, and inspiring leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints passed away. President Thomas S. Monson must be feeling an overwhelming burden now – the calling of President of the Church, Prophet, Seer, and Revelator.
President Hinckley was one of the most lovable and loving people in the world, and was respected by those within and without the Church. He will truly be missed. But his touch upon the Church, especially his imprint on the young people of the Church and the recent converts of the Church, will long be felt.
After his endless energy and dedication, and his endurance without his wife at his side, he must welcome this rest. Thank you, President Hinckley.
