Pres Hinckley

it’s a great loss — he was a great man: kind, intelligent, good humoured, dedicated, exemplary… he’ll be sorely missed by many of us, both Latter-Day Saints and members of other faiths who knew and respected him, but I have no doubt that he’s enjoying a long-awaited reunion w/his beloved wife and other family who’ve passed on before, and that the Lord has welcomed him home w/open arms: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant…enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matt. 25:21)
