Pres. Faust was well spoken and a terrific writer. He has inspired me over the years with his frank yet loving admonitions to do better. He literally wore his life out in the service of the Lord. The world is a little worse off today because of his passing.
I am grateful to have received council and a witness from someone who knew. Thank you, Pres. James E. Faust.

I love you and will miss you Uncle Jim. Thank you for always being so gracious and kind towards all of us in your extended family. You always seemed to make time. You always seemed to have just the right thing to say.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and all who loved President Faust.

President Faust was a warm, wonderful, and spiritual giant among men. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loving family (especially his daughter, Lisa-our dear friend.) We will miss President Faust.

What a faithful servant of the Lord. WE will miss him, but always remember the teacgings and spirit he brought to us all. Well done President Faust.

Mike McClure

In 1973, after a mission meeting, Elder Faust visited several missionaries in Sao Paulo, Brazil who were sick in bed with hepatitis, of which I was one. He knew how we felt, because he had been likewise afflicted when he was a missionary in Brazil before WWII. I met him one more time after my mission in a stake conference in Kingsport Tennessee almost a decade later. He clearly remembered me and smilingly said, "Elder McClure, you sure were yellow." I will always treasure both visits!

CARLOS GOES

Um homem realmente que vivia tudo aquilo que ensinava, foi um grande exemplo para ns aqui do Brasil, sentiremos a sua falta, mas entendemos o proposito.

Herb & Elizabeth Roggermeier

What a sweet, kind and gentle man. A true example of what a servant of the Lord should be like. We will miss his uplifting kind spirit.

Our prayers are with his family and friends.

I have so much enjoyed reading President Faust's messages in the Ensign. His deep spirituality was a true strength to me. He was truly Christlike in his humility and his love for others. I will miss him.

Jeff Chapman

Ten years ago Pres. Faust paused on Main Street during a Saturday A.M. walk to shake hands with my young daughter and speak encouraging words. What a good and kind and gentle man. We've been blessed by President Faust

President Faust was our stake president and worked side by side with my father and me in building our chapel. I was always honored to know him and his family.

Clinton Papenfuss

The Papenfuss Family will miss the wise advise that President Faust offers in his talkes at General Conference. He will be missed by the whole Church and welcomed into the loving arms of our elder Brother Jesus Christ.
