Farewell President Hinckley.

My mother called us last night about 8pm to tell us the news that President Hinckley passed away about 1 hour earlier. It came as a shock, in some ways the man seemed like the energizer bunny, he just kept going and going and going, I think mostly because we had no idea that his health had been failing him. It was comforting to hear that his family was by his bedside, which tells me he had been having some organ failure, and it was not a sudden death.
Of course tears followed but also the sense of peace and gladness that he is reunited with his sweet wife, who he dearly missed.
He was a remarkable man, with an ability to reach out to all people. He had a wonderful sense of humor, which endeared him to so many people.
I think of the impact that he has had, the films he was responsible for, the curriculum, the building of temples, the Proclamation to the World on the Family, the Living Christ. He inspired many people and he will be missed in this life.

If you have a blog post commemorating the life and your feelings about this wonderful man please share your link with Mr. Linky.
