Farewell, and Welcome

On Sunday, January 27th, our beloved Prophet, President Hinckley passed away. He was 97 years old. I will miss President Hinckley, but the thought that he will once again be with his sweet wife gladdens my heart. I will always remember the way he spoke—so positive and encouraging. When I think of him, I think of gentle strength and a devoted energy.

Today Thomas S. Monson was named as the new President of the Church. I have known him for as long as I can remember as a General Authority, and am looking forward to knowing him as a Prophet. When I was a child, his talks were the ones that held my attention most, as he told a lot of stories! I look forward to hearing him speak again in his new role.
