I can still recall when President Hinckley’s wife died, and the
Tribune running a picture of him weeping at her funeral. There were those who made light of that
scene, claiming that if President Hinckley truly believed in the Gospel of
Jesus Christ he would not have cried – after all, she was going to her eternal
rest! Salt Lake
Here we have the words of the Lord expressly telling us differently. Weeping for those who have died is a normal, human reaction. We are told by the Lord to weep for those who die, and most especially for those who do not have the hope of a glorious resurrection.
