Gordon B. Hinckley has been gone for well over 10 years, yet for many members of the church there is still a hole in their hearts. Personally, when I read his words I can still hear his voice in my mind.

We loved President Hinckley for many reasons. He was direct with us, and told us what needed to be done. He had an amazing sense of humor. He was a lover of literature. But perhaps above all, we loved him for his optimism.
