When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

I love this man.
There comes a prophet only once in a while that can touch you like this man did. Words can not even do him justice. The whole world loved him, whether they were members or not.
I will definitely feel a void now with him gone. I almost feel sorry for the next president of the church. How can anyone even compare? The apostles are all great men but I feel for who ever is next. What must he be feeling? How could anyone fill Pres. Hinckley's shoes like he did!? I know that who ever comes next is destined for great things but man, how scary!
I want who are out there to know that I know this man was a prophet. I would follow him anywhere he wanted me to. I will try throughout my life to do everything he told us to do. I want to be able to hang out with him someday. To make that happen, I have a lot of work and improvement to do!
After I heard the news of his passing, I tried to imagine what it was like on the other side as everyone came to welcome him home! The emotion I felt when I imagined this made me cry. I wish I could have been there to see it. I imagined Jesus there with a huge smile on his face, his arms open wide saying "well done, my good and faithful servant!"
We love you, Gordon B. Hinckley! We can't wait to see you again!
