"This dear sweet man has been the leader and president of our beloved church. Gordon B. Hinckley died this evening at the age of 97. I couldn't let this go without a little, modest tribute. President Hinckley will always seem so familiar to me. I felt like I knew him more than any other leader of my lifetime. He was charity, kindness and lightheartedness completely personified. He was dignity and integrity to his very core. He inspired me to be better, and to do better. When he spoke he moved and engaged me. The world has lost a great, great man. His legacy will last many generations. My heart aches and my eyes are teary, but as he taught us "Carry On." That's my job. Carry on just a small portion of the person he was."
