Shauna and I were playing board games with some friends when the news of President Hinckley's passing arrived through the grapevine. Having been baptized when I was 19, he's the only prophet that I've ever known. It makes this particular passing all the more significant for me personally. I'm especially glad that Shauna and I were able to attend a session of General Conference back in October and hear him speak.
While he will be sorely missed here on the earth, he has faithfully fulfilled his purpose and earned an eternal reward with his beloved wife. Thank you, President Hinckley, for your service to all mankind and the shining example you are for us.
