It has just been announced that LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley has died. As is usually the case, the information he was so close to death was withheld from the public, so this is a huge shock to many.
I offer my sincere (yes, sincere) condolences to his family, and those who feel the loss of his passing.
While not my FAVORITE person, he was still somebody’s father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and prophet, and thus, we know his passing will cause great distress.
Hinckley was 97 years old, and was suffering from cancer.
Note: Before you Mormons decide to comment, and sling nastiness my way, please be aware that THOUSANDS of people read this blog. Your true colors will speak for themselves. I stand behind my comments. Will you stand behind yours? Once you put the comment there, it does not come off. I also initially wrote “we” in reference to the Trappees. Given the venom spewed by many, and personal attacks on some of those who commented here, I am changing it to make it clear it is MY post and my opinion.
This is a sincere wish of condolences over President Hinckley’s passing. His past actions are NOT recounted here. But it doesn’t mean they didn’t happen.
Additional Note: Based on the HUGE amount of traffic to this site, in the past three hours, I would guess there are THOUSANDS of faithful Mormons who are choosing NOT to comment or spew hatred. Kudos to them. I’m doing my best to keep up with the comments. Bear with me.
