There was a time when I was listening to General Conference and he commented that he loved the members of this church. At the time I was so touched and could actually feel the sincerity and love radiating from him. At that moment I realized how possible it was to be loved in that way. Also it made me further realize that the Savior does love us individually as well.
He has taught us so much during his service and he will be greatly missed. I leave you with the words to "We Thank Thee O God for a Prophet" which defines our beloved President Hinkley perfectly.
We thank thee, O God, for a prophet
To guide us in these latter days.
We thank thee for sending the gospel
To lighten our minds with its rays.
We thank thee for every blessing
Bestowed by thy bounteous hand
We feel it a pleasure to serve thee
And love to obey thy command.
