Meus sentimentos

Heather S.

This is a very sad time but it is a happy time too. Think of what a good missionary Pres. Faust will be on the other side. The lessons he taught us will remain in our hearts forever. We shall miss him and I look forward to meeting him in person someday. I feel that he wants us to be happy because he is in a beautiful and better place!

Grateful Saint

Humility and purity radiated from President Faust's eyes. Well done, thou good and faithful servant!

Sergio Ordenes S.

Ha sido una pena para mi haberme enterado de esta noticia, pero sabemos perfectamente que el ahora esta en un lugar mejor, como lo han dicho todos fue un gran hombre y un gran lider, sus mensajes eran muy buenos, muy edificantes, se le agradece mucho por su dedicacin en la Obra del Seor y por todas sus enseanzas. Y me alegra haberlo conocido en esta vida como uno de los lideres de la Iglesia.

Muchas Gracias! por todo Presidente James E. Faust, lo extraaremos.
Les doy mis condolencias y todo mi apoyo a la Familia Faust.

Hasta Pronto Presidente Faust.

We love you President Faust and will miss you dearly. The Faust family is in our thoughts and prayers. He has earned his great reward and may we all hold fast to the iron rod so that we too may earn ours. God be with you till we meet again!

How do you put into words the feelings you have when someone, whom you've never met, passes on to the next life. This dear, sweet man was a Saint by definition. He could make you laugh, cry, and really stop to think about your life and the choices you make. We will miss him so very much, though we know he's in a place far better than this one. We just regret that we were never able to meet him in person in this life. So, we will plan for the next life. Our thought and prayers go out to his family, friends, and the members of the church who have fallen in love with his radiant smile and spirit. May Heavenly Father bless us all to follow in the footsteps of this great teacher of life and love.


Auf wiedersehen, President Faust

Paul Ayrton

He was a great example of how one should emulate the Savior. He was a man of great spirituality and integrity. Faithful to the end. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. God be thanked that many thousands of God's children had a chance to hear his testimony and feel of his noble spirit in this life.
May the peace and comfort of the Savior be with his family during this time.

I met and shook Pres. Faust's hand in the BYU Museum of Art when the "Christ Healing at the Pool of Bethesda" painting by Heinrich Bloch was unveiled as a recent acquisition. I did not think he was looking at me as his head seemed bend down, but when he shook my hand he said: "I had red hair once." He had seen me; I've got red hair. He cared about people and worked to lift them up as the Savior would do. I have appreciated his messages, especially the recent one on forgiveness and one on persevering when he recounted the story of the "The Little Engine that Could." "I think I can, I think I can."

Siento mucho en mi corazn su partida, pero creo que el Seor ahora le necesita mas cerca de l, por eso creo que sus enseanzas, su amor y su ejemplo siempre estara ac en la tierra con nosotros.

Le queremos y le recordaremos siempre, especialmente por demostrar en este ultimo tiempo su gran perseverancia.

David & Ronda Norris

What a wonderful man he is, and what a sad time for us here, but what joy on the other side of the viel. We always loved to hear him speak and to read his talks. He is a giant of a man and an example to young men. His teaching on forgiveness and honor of family will continue to be taught. we are so sorry for your loss as we know it is felt so deeply and only hope you can feel the love that is sent your way. our prayers are with you.

The Bravo family

President Faust, you will be in our hearts for the rest of our lives, thanks for your example and the love you had for the members of the Lord's church

A Greatful Mother

I have a very tender memory of President Faust. About 20 years ago my then 3 year old daughter eagerly squirmed in her chair during a primary session of stake conference. She was determined to meet one of the Prophet's helpers. Elder Faust came to visit the children before going into meet with the general session. She got up and went to him. Much to my joy he took her little face into his hands and kissed her cheeks and whispered into her ear. The love he showed my daughter will always be imprinted on my mind. He didn't know how sick she was or that she would later die and go home to our Father in Heavenly Father. One of my most peaceful memories is of the both of them sharing a moment together. Thank You Sister Faust for sharing him with the rest of us.
