One of Ben’s ambitions was for President Hinckley to hit him on the head with his cane. Yesterday, the dream died, as our beloved prophet went home.
Part of me is very sad, because we do love him. Gordon B. Hinckley was (is) not only a great man of faith and tireless leader, he was a wonderful speaker and had a marvelous sense of humor. On the other hand, this is a natural part of life and he has been lonely for his wife for a long time now. It is delightful to think of him being welcomed by his wife and other family and friends. Amazing to think of the welcome he must have received from our Savior whom he loves and served so well.
