These two wonderful men are so different, but yet so similar. They both share such a sweet spirit and there is no doubt in my mind that they are supposed to be where they are supposed to be, WHEN they are supposed to be. It is definitely sad as President Hinckley passes on as there seems to be an unfillable void. However, Heavenly Father most certainly knows that it is time for a new leader and prophet to emerge and take over as prophet, seer and revelator. It seems that our beloved prophet's death was so untimely and so sudden. However, it was perfect timing, I couldn't personally tell you why, but Heavenly Father knew it was time and that is why it is perfect time. At first, it definitely seems shocking because I was not ready for him to go. BUT, one thing I do know is that our new President Monson is just what we need right here and right now, and I am oh so anxious for this new legacy to begin. Heavenly Father is very mindful of us and our church and what we need. Sometimes it doesn't seem to make sense when something wonderful ends or somebody passes on, but Heavenly Father is all knowing and knows what is best for us and our church. I just hope that when it is my time to be called home, I will have made my father in Heaven JUST AS PROUD as our prophet did. What a wonderful example of a wonderful life lived.
Goodbye, President Hinckley....we LOVE you and will miss you. Selfishly speaking...it seemd too soon, but just remember, that last night, this JOYOUS reunion took place.
