OK, I know many of you won't understand it, but it is part of my beliefs, so I posting this here. I am totally stunned. I guess I expect them to live forever. I am dreading the day that the Prophet passes from this life. He has been the Prophet of the LDS church for most of my LDS life (since I was 24). There was one other Prophet before him, but the current Prophet has been around for a very long time. He is in his 90's and he still travels the world.
The Person who passed away today was one of his councilors, he helped the Prophet in his duties. I am saddened by his passing.
Here is the link to his obituary from the BYU Broadcasting website:
