Gordon B. Hinckley Tribute

As many of you know, our beloved prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley passed away in his home on Sunday night, January 27th.  I am grateful for the opportunity we had to sustain him one last time on Sunday morning in our branch conference.  I am also grateful for the knowledge we have that he was a true prophet of God.  What an example he was of service and faith as well as an inspiration to us all.

I feel that the following video, which was produced by my sister Kerrianne Burch as a tribute to President Hinckley is touching, inspiring, and appropriate to share.  It is true that because of him we will all stand a little taller.  Please feel free to share your thoughts by using the comment link at the bottom of this post.

Well I'm crying--again. Why do we Miller women always have to cry over everything? This tribute was beautiful, thank you so much for sharing it with us. President Hinckley was "our" prophet--the only one the Miller family has ever known. What a wonderful example to everyone he was and will continue to be.

If this post twice I'm sorry--I lost my server. Thank you so much for sharing this video with us Erin. President Hinckley was such a blessing to so many people all over the world, members and non-members alike. To the Miller family he was "our" prophet--the only one we ever knew--and we will miss him so much. Look on LDS.org for the condolences that have been sent to see what a huge difference he made in this world.
