Ok, so I found this press release this morning. Is it wrong that I'm very, very excited?

I was so touched when I received a link to this video in my email. It makes me so grateful that there are many people, of all faiths and cultures, who are willing to fight for what is right and make a difference.

I have struggled to come up with a way to express my sense of loss at the passing of President Hinckley. He was a prophet of God, and I will always hold a special place in my heart where I know that. I remember obtaining that knowledge, not long after he became President of the Church. I was sitting in Seminary one day when I was about 14. We were watching a documentary of his life. I remember it came to a part where there was a clip of a General Conference address that he gave, and as he testified of the truth of the gospel in that clip, I was overwhelmed with a feeling of happiness as well as an assurance that this man was indeed a prophet of God. For more than the next 12 years this humble man would inspire me in my greatest life decisions: as I served a mission, got married, and started a family of my own. I owe more to the humble guidance and inspiration of this man than words can express. I love him, and what he taught me. Perhaps Glenn Beck can express some of my emotions with a little more eloquence in the accompanying video. Farewell, President Hinckley. The world is a better place for your life in it, and it is less of a place in your absence.
