President Hinckley was the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spanning my entire young adulthood, through the most critical determining years of my life. During this time and still I looked to his words as the Lord's mouthpiece. I am sad he passed away yesterday. I will miss looking forward to his talks in conference and his sweet sense of humor. His energy and positivity were an inspiration to me and all those who looked up to him.
