President of the LDS church dies.

I was at my parents house tonight when I heard the news that our beloved Prophet Gorden B. Hinckley had died.

I wasn’t sad, but I was saddened.

He is the second prophet that I have any real memory of. The first being the President Howard W. Hunter, who served for a brief 9 months.

He accomplished so much and was such a loving prophet to the church.

I believe he truly was a man of God.

Farewell President Hinckley you will not soon be forgotten by the saints.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, who led The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through twelve 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 12 March 1995.

The Church president died at his apartment in downtown Salt Lake City at 7:00 p.m. Sunday night from causes incident to age. Members of his family were at his bedside. A successor is not expected to be formally chosen by the Church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles until after President Hinckley’s funeral within the next few days.
