Last night, Gordon B. Hinckley, president of the LDS church, died at the tender young age of 97. He had been quite healthy, right up til the end, which I think was a definite blessing. I am sure he is happy to be with his beloved wife again.
Although I have my doubts and questions and emotional struggle with the LDS church at the moment, I have always had an enormous amount of respect for Pres. Hinckley. He was a kind, good man. The world is a slightly sadder place without his presence.
I have been a bit upset and struggling a lot spiritually and emotionally with regards to my religion. But I am mourning the loss of Pres. Hinckley; my issues were never with him.
