"Beloved Church President Gordon B. Hinckley, who led The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through 12 years of global expansion, has died at the age of 97. President Hinckley was the 15th President in the 177-year history of the Church and had served as its President since March 12, 1995." For more information, visit the Newsroom.
President Hinckly is the only President of the church that John and I have experienced so it's a strange feeling to know that he is no longer with us on this earth. We are so grateful and happy to have been able to hear him speak learn from him these past few years. He will be greatly missed and always loved.
"Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain.”
-Gordon B. Hinckley
