He will be missed -

If you ever heard him speak, it was apparent that he was a man of God. I am so grateful for the service that he provided to us as a church and as an entire Nation. "We thank thee Oh God for a prophet." What a fantastic reunion is taking place right now!

"I worship the God of heaven who is my Eternal Father. I worship the Lord Jesus Christ who is my Savior and my Redeemer. I do not worship the Prophet Joseph Smith, but I reverence and love this great seer through whom the miracle of this gospel has been restored. I am now growing old, and I know that in the natural course of events before many years, I will step across the threshold to stand before my Maker and my Lord and give an accounting of my life. And I hope that I shall have the opportunity of embracing the prophet Joseph Smith and of thanking him and of speaking of my love for him."

Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley (1997) 509.

Such a great picture of him, he will be missed, I can't even imagine being that old and doing all that he did.. Pretty neat that our Boys have his signature on their calls..that will be a neat thing for them to remember.
