President Hinckley's Legacy

Surprisingly, the first emotion I felt when reading of President Hinckley's death a few minutes ago was relief. Since the passing of his wife, it has seamed to me that he has dearly missed her, understandably. I admire his diligence in enduring to the end, but I can't help but think he is relieved to have done his work (at least on this earth).

In our stake conference today, there was a lot of talk about temples. I can't think of a more fitting way to honor President Hinckley's contribution than to strengthen our commitment to temple worship.

Totally agree. Mary and I had decided to attend the temple more regularly before he died, but we'll be sure to keep it up.
