Gordon B. Hinckley

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.
