So it's been 4 days since our Prophet and President, Gordon B. Hinckley, passed away. I think we've all been able to get more used to the idea and I found a couple things on my Aunt Patti's blog that I wanted to share on here. Actually I will just share the website. The poem is really nice, too, but I don't want to steal her whole blog!! http://photo.byu.edu/video.php?cat1=Slide%20Shows&cat2=General&cat3=2008&cat4=Hinckley%20Tribute
And...I don't know how to add links so I just put it on like that. Hope it works! It's so awesome. If it doesn't, let me know and I'll try to figure out how to fix it. It's pictures with splices of different talks he's given and the last splice his voice changes and you can just hear how much he loves us! I always start crying during that part! I'm so sad that my kids won't ever know him or hear his voice (except on tape) or see him doing all his cute little manerisms. But I'm so glad he's with his sweet wife! He's been waiting for that for such a long time and he really deserves to be with her again.
"Before I married her, she had been the girl of my dreams, to use the words of a song then popular. She was my dear companion for more than two-thirds of a century, my equal before the Lord, really my superior. And now in my old age, she has again become the girl of my dreams."
Aw, I'm crying again. I'm so happy that she's not the literal girl of his dreams anymore. He's just so wonderful. I read this the other day in the school newspaper and totally started crying in my biology class! I bet she was just standing there waiting for him and he was running up to her. I am so happy for them. And for all of heaven! They're so lucky to have such a great man there.
