President Gordon B Hinckley

I just had to take a second and pay tribute to Gordon B Hinckley. For those of you who don't know who he is, he was the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints, (the Mormon Church) for the past 12 years. He was an amazing man and someone that we both admired very much. His optimism was contagious and he always gave us so much hope, despite this troubled world. His work for the growth of the church was incredible and his enthusiam for life and confidence in the members of the church inspired us to always try a little harder. We are really sad tonight as we learn of his passing. I am happy for him that he is with his wife now, but sad that we will not be blessed by his presence anymore. He was truly one of our heroes!

So I read your post on President Hinckley and I thought you'd appreciate this:

CNN - A Tribute to President Hinckley by Glenn Beck

I was impressed - this was better than I expected from CNN.

We miss you, Aaron. That's an awesome family you've got!

PS. I tried to send this to Aaron's email, but I don't know if he still uses it.
