The Mormon World Mourns: RIP President Gordon B. Hinckley

So, my best friend Tim called me a few minutes ago to tell me that Gordon B. Hinckley has died.

He has been prophet since two weeks after I came home from Costa Rica. I have learned much about life and how to be more like Jesus Christ by listening to his sermons and heeding his counsel. He will be missed, dearly.

For all my non-Mormon friends, this is akin to our pope dying.
