My heart has been so full this past week with the passing of our dear Prophet President Gordon B. Hinkley. What an amazing man of God he was. I feel such a void by his passing, but also a tremendous excitement for him to once again be with his sweetheart and eternal companion.
Tony and I attended the funeral service today via satalite broadcast at the church. Along with many others that had a desire to feel once again of the tremendous strength of this dear man. What a great example of dedication, strength, endurance, hope, joy, and a love for all. He set the example that our dear Savior Jesus Christ has asked of each of us. It helped me reflect on my own life as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and leader. How am I doing, or have I done thus far? I know I have a long way still to go, but I feel I am on the right track moving forward.
I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father that wants me to succeed in life, as well as through the eternities, and also for a loving Savior that made it possible for me to be with my loved ones throughout Eternity if I continue to move forward in this life.
Tony and I have had our ups and downs over the past 33 years, yet continue to work on our love and dedication to one another as well as to our Savior. He has led us throughout our time together which I hope our children have felt and will treasure within there own relationships. That is the only way I feel that anyone can survive the challenges in this life.
Please know of my love for each of you both family and friends. As well as my desire to spend the eternities together. This is my prayer, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
