"We Thank Thee Oh God, for a Prophet..."

As the news traveled fast around these parts last night, I've been thinking of some of my favorite memories of our dear Prophet... there are so many! He has been the Prophet since I was 15! He was such an influence during my youth, and I loved him. When he spoke, I listened. I loved that he had such a sense of humor! I remember laughing quite a bit during General Conferences and a lot of times having a fit of the giggles later, as I thought about what he did or about what he had said. He shared his testimony far and wide, and everyone loved him for that. I am thankful for the knowledge of a great plan, to know that he is with his dear wife again, that he has been welcomed home after a mission well served. I've heard rumors traveling, that junior high and high school aged kids, both members of the church and not, have been sending texts since last night, passing on a message. Either they are dressing in white for school today, or dressing in their "Sunday best", to show respect for this dear man. I think that speaks volumes...

I wanted to post a favorite quote, but there isn't room for all of them!

I heard about his passing on the news this morning. I'm very sorry.
