Why We Love President Hinckley

From one of Dad's colleagues:
"After President Hinckley finished with the sustaining of the officers of the church during the Saturday morning session, Elder Eyring had moved into his new seat on the stand. Unfortunately, they didn't show this on TV, but when President Hinckley turned around, he stood there for a moment looking at Elder Eyring (probably with the little twinkle in his eye), then picked up his cane and "knighted" him on his shoulder and head. Truly one of the funniest things I've ever seen him do. Here's the picture from it. I love how Elder Erying looks just like a little boy...."

I keep hoping someone will post the video on YouTube, but alas.

Is it just me, or does President Hinckley hopefully say goodbye at the end of ech conference. Sort of a, 'I really hope I'm not here next time'.

Also, I was in the conference center for the second session and President Eyring has the exact same stature as GRANDPA.
