“We Thank Thee O God, For a Prophet!”


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 commands.

I love this video, you can see why he is so loved! His smile, His humor, but most of all his testimony. I am grateful for that testimony. I am grateful for him, and his service to the Lord and to us. I hope it can be said, that I have done my best to follow his council, and I am grateful for the Prophet of my youth, who strengthened me, in ways I don’t even fully understand.
When I told Tucker of Pres. Hinckley’s passing, he responded “That is good news, now he is with his hubba! But it is bad news because now he isn’t with us.”
Yes, it is sad he isn’t with us in body, but his teachings, faith and hard work will live on.

Thanks for your sweet words Emily. He just glows with goodness and I will miss him greatly as well. I’m glad, though, like Tucker that he is with his “hubba”. Their marriage was beautiful.
