Passing of a Prophet


I imagine he’s running to Marjorie now,
Yes, running, not waving his cane.
I see him embracing his father and mother
While they keep repeating his name.
I see him now meeting his forebears,
Brother Brigham and Joseph are there.
Sweet reunion of prophets, united by service
That only such noble men share.
I see him embraced by the Savior
While Father says, “Good and well done.
So faithful in stalwart endurance, I welcome
My noble, most excellent son.”
I then hear the ripples of laughter
As he says the reception’s just fine,
But he hopes that he’ll get an assignment or two
Since there’s no need to waste any time.
I can hear his clear voice in the stillness
At the close of this sweet Sabbath day,
Have faith and move forward – there’s work to be done.
President Hinckley would want it that way.

I just wanted to post a little tribute to this amazing and wonderful man.

God be thanked for you, President Hinckley.

Hey Bree,
I like this. Thanks for sharing. I miss you tons. Sorry I haven't commented in a while. Our internet is bonkers. Anyways, good luck getting through these next few weeks, the hardest part if you ask me. How's like otherwise? You are still in Utah, right? Did you get to go to the viewing?
