President Gordon B. and Marjorie Pay Hinkley
Together Again

They loved each other so much. I like to think that their reunion in heaven was the sweetest thing. President Hinkley often referred to his wife, Marjorie, as his Beloved Eternal Companion. Theirs is the kind of marriage that should be the goal of every couple.

"I could wish for you nothing better than a good marriage, a happy marriage, a marriage fruitful in the sweet and satisfying things of life. Your marriage will not be excellent if it is marred with argument, if it is filled with disrespect one for another, if there is any lack of loyalty or devotion to one another. Cherish your spouse as the greatest possession of your life and treat him or her accordingly. Make it your constant goal to add to the happiness and comfort of your companion. Never permit yourself to let down in your affection, or your respect, or your faith in one another. Be excellent in every way." Gordon B. Hinckley, “The Quest for Excellence,” Ensign, Sep 1999, 2
