Thank you, President Faust, for your wonderful service, leadership, and knowledge of the Gospel. You will be missed!

Numa Conferncia Regional em Recife/Brazil, o Pres. Faust, disse-me olhando nos olhos - "Sou um BRASILEIRO!". Sabamos do grande amor que nutria pelo povo brasileiro. Extendemos nossos sentimentos aos seus amados familiares. Que o Senhor os abenoe neste momento dificil.

We appreciate so much the countless hours of service given by the entire Faust family. We love and pray for you during this time of loss.

Thank you President Faust. We love you!

I'm sure other than the fact that he will most assuredly miss his association with his family and friends who are still on this side of the veil, President Faust must be having a great time reuniting with loved ones and other great leaders of the Church who have passed before him. My condolences go to the Faust family for their loss, but my congratulations go as well to know that their loved one passed away a faithful man, and will enjoy the blessings thereof.

Fausts,

May the good Lord comfort you at this time of need as you bid farewell to your loved one. He was truly a good and great example and a great leader. I will surely miss seeing him and hearing him during the next general conference. He was one of my favorite speakers. His legace will forever live on and will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God bless!

Dalma and Phillip Heath

We especially enjoyed your talks in General Conference. Your sweet spirit shined through your mortal tabernacle and you spoke as a true apostle of the Lord. What a tremendous loss for the Church and especially the First Presidency. Thank you President Faust for a job so well done. We pray that the Spirit of the Lord will comfort and bless your family.

President Faust has been a personal hero of mine for years, professionally and spiritually. I treasure the gift of his autographed biography. I will forever remember his kind greeting when my wife and I passed him in a hallway at Church headquarters. The Church has lost a giant of a man but his personal influence will linger for years. Thank you for your inspiring life, President Faust.

We pray for blessings of comfort and peace to President Faust's family. Take comfort in knowing that he has heard the words from our Redeemer "Well done thou good and faithful servant..."

Dearest Faust Family,

I thank the Lord for the precious spirit we all were blessed with when President Faust became a part of our lives. How deeply loved he was by me and likewise will be missed. May the Comforter bless you with peace during this time of sorrow knowing he stands with the Lord's anointed.

The Brayton Family in TX

We have truly been uplifted by this wonderful man. In our quest to be Disciples of Christ, we need only look at our First Presidency for the example. I will never forget the blessing he gave me during his last Conference address concerning Forgiveness. He was speaking directly to me and I kept telling him to stop, but I guess he couldn't hear me. hehe

Our gratitude is directed toward President Foust's survivors, they have sacrificed their time on our behalf and I know they are richly blessed for it. It's amazing that one can grow to love someone we have never met, but we love President Foust and know that he stands before the Savior now and receives love beyond measure.

Mika Tufuga-Valai

Every time he spoke, I felt like I was listening to the savior himself. Thank you President Faust for always restoring hope in all of us. God bless your family.

Marg Sharp

When a great leader and prophet of the Lord passes, we know he is welcomed into the realm of peace--then we are left to try to fill the void in our heart his passing has left. May the Lord bless us all to fill it with a life dedicated to service as advocated by Pres. Faust.

Tonks Family - Pocatello

Just reading these posts have strengthened our testimonies. One post had only two words which says it all. Thank You. It would have been all Brother Faust ever wanted from anyone.
