Thank you for fulfilling all my expectations of a Christlike hero!

I first met President Faust at the Waterton Golf Club, Waterton Lakes, Alberta when I was the summer pro there. He had come as a guest of Dr. Coombs who used to come most summers. President Faust loved a good game of golf. It was an absolute pleasure to have met such a quiet, unassuming, and spiritual man. We stayed in contact over the years and he always answered my letters and cards. I will miss him as will all members of the Church.

My heart and prayers go to Sister Faust and to your Family. President Faust's last talk in April's conference was the boost I needed to take care of a situation with my former husband that had been going on for 20 years. During the talk, I e-mailed him and expressed to him my feelings and asked forgiveness of anything I might have done to cause some of the difficulties. The spirit so prompted me to write to President Faust, and after a week I received a signed letter from him in return. A letter I will treasure always. What an amazing Gospel we are a member of. Thank you Elder Faust for your love and service to us all!

I remember meeting President Faust on my mission in Taiwan in 1997. His words were very inspiring and I still remember his message. What a great man! I will miss him.

Our hearts ache with the passing of this christian man. He was a man of God in every sense of the word.
Many tears will be shed because we knew him and loved him very much.

What a great example of Jesus Christ. He was and is truly humble and one of the most non judgeing men out there. He had a quiet strength, and I loved his conference talks-so sincere and said with such love. We will miss you, my condolences go out to the family of this great man. What a blessing to know that he is in heaven and for his family to know they are sealed to him for eternity.

David Sylvester Family

President Faust is a giant of a man and a wonderful leader and will always be deeply appreciated for his faith and love and unbelievable example. We will miss his wisdom but will remember him with our devotion to his lessons taught.

Thank you for everything you've done for this great Work, President Faust. Our prayers are with you and your family during this time.

This news hit me hard. I grew up really respecting him and enjoying his talks as I found my own testimony. When I served my mission in Portugal and he came with Elder Holland, I was amazed that after sixty years, he still spoke fluent Portuguese. When Elder Holland sat down and President Faust stood, he just looked over at the interpreter as if to say, "what are you still doing here?" We have lost a great man, and I hope he will live on a little in our own examples.

He was an inspiration to all! It's hard to imagine the Church and Kingdom on earth without him! He will be so missed. His faithfulness, kindness, humility and righteousness were an example for us all! Te amo, Presidente Faust!

Brenda Anderson

President Faust inspired so many people. He will be greatly missed.

I just wanted to say that my heart and prayers go out to the Faust Family. I truly appreciate his example and love of the gospel and I could see that every time I heard him speak. He will be missed.

I'll most remember Pres Faust's loving, kind and gentle spirit, which always showed forth while he taught from the general conference pulpit and in his many writings. As a lawyer myself, I have learned much from his teachings and example. Kindest wishes and sincerest condolences to his wife, family and loved ones.

Susie Jeffries

First to the family of President Faust, my sincere condolances. Having lost my husband eight years ago, I understand the feelings of loss that come with death, I also understand the feeling of elation in the knowledge that this is just a short separation and that his family will be reunited with him forever..The thing I most remember about President Faust is that when he spoke I felt the spirit...THAT has been a blessing to me in my life. Thank you and bless you all.

Secondly, my heart goes out to a post entered earlier by Micheal (didn't post last name). I will pray that your heart will come to the knowledge that your opinion is not based on fact or truth, but a desire of other men to destroy what they can't understand. May you learn as a christian that forgiveness not judgement is the truth Christ taught and may the Lord bless you to understand the truth in your lifetime. I'm so sorry others have twisted the truth and taught you to be unkind and hateful towards others. It makes my heart very sad indeed.

Heaven is richly blessed today. You will be missed but never forgotten. Thank you President Faust.
