The Passing of a Giant

Today President Gordon Bitner Hinckley passed away, at age 97, from natural causes. He was surrounded by his family.

President Hinckley was and is any amazing man, an amazing soul. He never stopped moving forward. He traveled more than half a million miles during his time in office. Church membership rose from 9 million to more than 13 million. He oversaw the construction of dozens of new temples, all over the world.

He was a man of God. A man with a strong testimony, an unshakable faith. He was called of God to be our prophet, and now he has been called of God to come home.

Bless you, President Hinckley.
