I will always remember and be grateful for Pres. Faust's high regard, respect and love for the women of the Church. His gentle nature and humility are a great example to me.


We were at the Idaho Falls airport about 10 years ago. President Faust was leaving to return to Salt Lake and we spotted him in the terminal. All four of our kids shook his hand, and he spoke to each one individually. Our youngest son was about 9 years old at the time. President Faust pulled him close to him and gave him a big hug. This same son is entering the MTC in two weeks. President Faust was a wonderful example to all of us.

Our family sends our love and Prayers to Sister Faust and her family. We have been led by a great man, and the best we can do to remember him, is to live our lives as he has taught by example as well as counsel.

We will miss President Faust. He has been such a wonderfull example to the members of the church, and many others. I love listening to all of our leaders, but he was allways one of my favorites to hear from in General Conference.
Our prayers are with the family, and to those who were close to him. May you have comfort at this time of loss, President Faust is a great man and will allways be remembered.
Love, The Weis Family

I was a little saddened, and yet felt a peace in my heart, at the same time because I know where his spirit now resides and he is actively engaged in the work on the other side of the veil. He has simply moved to the next stage of his eternal existence. My prayers go to his family that they are comforted at this time and may feel the peace of the Lord.

The Roberts Family

We Thank President Faust for he and his family, for sharing with the world such a wonderful kind gentle man. We meet him once when he put his kind hands on each cheek of our son and told him he was a very choice spirit. We will never forget his last conference talk about forgiveness, how grateful we are to have felt of his spirit, and to know of his witness and testimony of Jesus Christ. Our prayers are with you Sister Faust and your family.
We will miss him greatly.
Love, The Roberts

Pres. Faust had the most loving voice that I ever heard. He made me feel the spirit of the Lord when he spoke. We will miss him. Our prayers go to his wife and family.

We are saddened by the passing of this dear, noble servant of God. He touched many lives, and he was an immediate 'favorite' of my husband and myself, both converts to the Church. Even though we have never met him, we feel as though we've lost a dear friend. Thank you, and the Lord bless you, President Faust. We extend our condolences to his loved ones. 'Till we meet again...

President Faust will forever inspire us to a better life on this earth.....and we look forward, with great anticipation, to our meeting in the Hereafter should we live our lives as he has exemplified.

Ron & Harmke VanLeuven

We were awed and appreciative of your counsel. We remember with great joy your last conference address on foregiveness: a classic. This address has already had great use in our lessons and in our lives and in the lives of our children.
May the Lord bless your family as they struggle without your immediate love and concern.
