    Thanks for posting that video clip Maret – very touching to see that.

    My good friend from growing up called me last night to tell me the news. I think the reason why he called me is because the two of us came of age under his leadership. It was under his tenure the two of us went through our years of seminary, gained our own beliefs and knowledge that he was a prophet and that Jesus is the Christ. We were called on missions under his leadership and came home from them under his leadership. My parents were sealed by him in the temple and it was he who was the prophet when each of us got married.

    In a sense, it is the end of an era, something that says that the next generation of the church must carry on in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.

    I stand with him and publicly acknowledge my witness that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. What a blessing the life of Gordon B. Hinckley has been to the church and to me personally.

    Because of my new-found IRF friends of the Mormon faith, I did take note to read his obit and was impressed with how much the religion has grown outside of the U.S. under his guidance. Sounds like a leader who will be sorely missed but certainly leaves a legacy second to none. My condolences.

    T Russell and Sportsattitude, thank you for your comments.

    I suppose my thoughts about his passing are selfishly sad, but happy for him. He missed his wife. And I can’t think of a better way to meet my Maker than to have led a Christ-like life of love and service. May we ALL strive to “Stand a Little Taller”

    This tribute from Glenn Beck was very touching:

    I think he left quite an amazing legacy and molded a generation. “What can I say more?”
