Sad day



Today is a sad day for the world. Gordon B. Hinckley, 15th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, passed away tonight at his home. He was probably the best person I've ever known--I hope we can all become more like him. He sure will be missed.

So sad. He is the only prophet I have ever known - thus far. (convert, remember.) I miss him already - what a great man.

Oh yeah, I bet. :( He's the only prophet I've ever really known as well, just because I was only 9 years old when he was sustained. I'm so happy for him that he gets to be with Marjorie, but very sad for the rest of us. :( And to think, he was going to be here in Rexburg for the temple dedication in just a week...

I am so glad that you found my blog! I love looking at what people are doing. First, you're hair is so cute short. Second, you were 9 when Hinckley was made president? I was 13! I didn't know I was that much older! I keep thinking that I am young but I am really not. And lastly, I am just excited to be blogging buddies. I talk to Kathryn Lees and try to get updates on my friends back in Rexburg. This way I just check your blog. Try to get Kathryn to start a blog. And Marsha. Building 1 is definitely the coolest building in University Village and I would love to see what they are all up to. Have a great day!

Kathryn, I'm so glad you found me! We really need to get together more often. It's sad that we only live like 3 blocks apart and we never see each other!! I feel really bad, I do still have your dress, and I had totally forgotten about it, so it's not done! I'll try to get it done this week, but I'll give it to you next time I see you, either way. Also, TAG, YOU'RE IT! Look at my blog to see what to do!
