In October 2004 the late President Gordon B. Hinckley of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints honored the divine gifts possessed by women in a General Conference address entitled “The Women In Our Lives“. Youtube MormonMessages has created a video which beautifully illustrates excerpts of his words.
President Hinckley shared this tender preface to his chosen topic:
“My brethren and sisters, at the outset, if you will bear with me, I wish to exercise a personal privilege. Six months ago, at the close of our conference, I stated that my beloved companion of 67 years was seriously ill. She passed away two days later…I wish to thank publicly the dedicated doctors and wonderful nurses who attended her during her final illness”
