taken from my journel almost a year ago.....
Our dear President Hinkley passed away recently. How I loved him and how I miss him already.I'v always loved Pres. Monson but so far its not the same. I first had a personal encounter with Pres. Hinkley in Texas. Jim, Jonathan,Lia and I made the trip to Dallas to particiapte in the Dallas temple dedication. That's where I clicked with Pres. Hinkley.He seemed so down to earth,so funny and his love for the savior so child like. I adore him, admire him, love him and am thank-ful for all he did for us while he was here on the earth. I got half way through his biography and never finished it. It literally made me tired! He did so much in his lifetime.....what a man.
"I bear solemn witness
that he lives and stands
on the right hand of God"
Gordon B. Hinkley
