death of our beloved prophet

I remember more than 20 years ago when my mom told us President Kimball had died in the night. We were just going to have family scripture study. I remember crying and feeling so sad because I loved him. We heard the news that President Hinckley had passed away tonight while we were playing a family game. We all cried a bit and reminisced about this great man. We are happy that he gets to go and be with his sweet wife, but we will miss him and his funny personality. I know he was the prophet of God and he was the spokesman for the Lord. He did so many great things in his life, but I know that he did it to honor Jesus Christ. I think 20 years from now my kids will remember tonight.

I remember when President Kimball died too. I was telling my kids about it and told them they would remember this. We did a fun FHE on Pres. Hinckley. It was fun to talk about him and just made us choke up a couple times.
