This wonderful man has been such an amazing influence on me for the past 12 years of my life. He has been a strength for the church and all it's members. Working so hard in building up the church here upon the earth. He oversaw more construction of temples then any President before him and what a blessing that has been in the lives of members all around the world. He will surely be missed, his sweet spirit, witty sense of humor and amazingly strong testimony. What a wonderful President to have had lead us through these past 12 years of our lives. I will always hold a special spot in my heart for him. He was the one that I grew up with, through High School, my single years, and especially through my father's passing. What a wonderful man, how exciting it must be to be in heaven tonight! What a wonderful reunion between he and his wife. May he rest in sweet peace. We love and will miss you President Hinckley.
