Thank you for your life, President Faust. You will be missed. Your words and teachings are an indelible and integral part of all that this Church and its work means to me. I have not known the Church without your leadership. Thank you for always, through your words and example, pointing me to the Savior. I suppose the best way to offer my appreciation is to continue to carry the work of the Church forward in my own little corner of this beautiful world. Adieu.

From the Ogden Utah Whiteds we send our love and appreciation for the life and teachings of President Faust. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and with the family of mankind. What a tremendous loss for all of humanity. The words of the hymn keeping ringing in our ears this day "Come let us Anew" with heavy hearts at his passing. The world should stand still and take notice of this day. God be with you until we meet again President Faust.

Widenmann Family

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Faust family. Though a sad occasion for all of us, how indescribably joyous must be the reunion on the other side of the veil, and how blessed must he feel as he meets with Him Whom he served so faithfully throughout his life.

President Faust will be truly missed. My heart and prayers go out to the family. Happy reunions await.

Bishop Michael Simpson

Elder Faust married my parents in the Salt Lake temple and his brother Gus Faust was my bishop in the Murray 24th Ward. Pres Faust truely set a Christ-like example of honor, pure faith, and integrity.

I am really suffering his death. He was a wise humble man of God and his words have been a balm for my soul.

Sharon Vasicek

Having never met Pres. Faust, why would I feel a deep sense of loss?
Because I won't be hearing him at General Conferences, which I have grown to appreciate these many years he has served. I distinctly remember the resonance of Spirit I felt when he was called to serve as an apostle. I feel comforted there will be voices in his place, but none quite like his. I deeply appreciate his poise, his emotional depth, intelligence, humilty and appropriate judgment. I will review his talks just to continue feeling his particular witness of the Spirit. God is great, God is gracious for it is He who sent us James Faust. To the Fausts, my condolances.

Having grown up in the Ward and Stake with Pres. Faust as our Stake President we all loved and adored him for his kindness, strong testimony and service. We loved his family. I have often thought that if critics could see the respect and adoration of our church leaders towards their sweet wifes there is no way they could question the important role of women as viewed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and its leadership and by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Pres. Faust revered his dear wife Ruth and loved his family. His love extended to all he came in contact with. What a wonderful surprise when he phoned my work after a hospital stay to thank the leaders and I happened to be the only one available - it was a tender and endearing chat. We will see him again in the hereafter.

I will miss you President Faust.

The saddness is here when we know that we have lost you for a time. The joy comes when we know that the Lord needs your work on the other side. My heart is sad to know my children will grow up not listening and seeing you speak, but there is peace in knowing that the Lords work goes on through them. God be with you till we meet again, and special prayers to all of your family during this time! With Love~

Brother Ayre

I learned of Pres. Faust's passing while teaching lessons in the Adult Detention Complex (jail) from one of the inmates. Although not a member, the foreign national expressed his feeling of loss of a "man of God." As I read the account here my heart was full and my tears welled up. He was and is a gift of light, a true disciple of Christ. He is in a better place, full of joy and the gifts of God will forever be his.

Grateful

I just want to thank the Deseret Morning News for not allowing the trash that has become all too common at that 'other' newspaper.

I was walking through the Avenues one afternoon several years ago and as luck would have it, I shared the sidewalk with Elder Faust for a block or two. He was out walking his dog and we chatted very briefly about what a beautiful day it was to be out for a walk. It was a simple, insignificant meeting, but was memorable in so many ways.

Todd

A man of powerful testimony, deep conviction, sincere humility, and Christ-live love--President Faust will deeply be missed. I always looked forward to the power and depth of his testimony. It was obvious that he loved life, all those around him, and especially the Savior. His personal relationship with the Savior was evident every time he spoke. I thank him for his great example. My prayers and condolences to the Faust family. He will be greatly missed.

Ramon and Marta Giuliani

The Church and the world had lost a great man. His love and humility were unmeasurable, his council and words full of love and understanding. We are saddended by his loss but we know this is just a temporary good bye. We have the Faust family in our prayers.
Love,
The Giulianis

I was priviledged to be in President Faust's ward several years ago. One Sunday between meetings my roommate and I were in the chapel and I heard a very
familiar voice say "I don't believe I know you girls. I'm James E. Faust." We were so dumbstruck I don't think either one of us could remember our names but we shook his hand and he introduced us to his wife. For him to single us out of all the people in the ward was so humbling. I truly felt that it was something the Savior would have done. I will always have a special place in my heart for my "friend" James E. Faust. May the Lord be with Sister Faust and the entire family at this difficult time. We love you.
