I don't believe that I've ever submitted an online comment for an article
before. But I couldn't resist this time. President Faust is a true model for
us all. I have come to love and respect this man throughout the years. Thank
you President Faust, you will be missed.
i would like to express my love for you james e faust for your hard working that
has been done while you were a president.......we will missed you but you are
blessed by the love of our heavenly father...love you from my family
I know he's called of God. He's got the gift of tougue....I love him.
What a wonderful man. One lady commented in this article that 20 years ago,
President Faust came to her ward and before going into his meeting, he came over
and took the time to take the cheeks of her 3yr olds face in his hands and
whispered something into her ear, she commented on his kindness and that he did
not know that her daughter would later on be very ill and be called to God early
in her life. I wanted to write this article to let you know that ------------ He
did know, thats why he did it. Love always, until we meet again.
What a very sad moment for us to say this to Jame E Faust well he was a good
leader and was full of idea to learn from and we hope that we could see him in
the next life.....and we done this to show our love to him and his family...Much Love,Mary Tu'ipulotu/Cynthia.Latu

obedient to our Heavenly Father the possibilities are endless. President Faust
received many blessings before his temporal passing and he shall receive many
more in the times to come.
precidente faust siempre sera recordado por sus discursos tan edifincantes y
porque con ellos muchos nos ayudamos y tambien porque a pesar de que no estaba

I loved Pres. Faust with all my heart and I will miss his inspiring, wise talks.
I learned a lot from his teachings. His life was an example of love for the
gospel of our Savior. One of my goals was to see him one day, but his death
won't prevent me from seeing him because I know that I will see him again, then
I will hug him and say that he was a strong example in my life. I will miss
I am very impressed on how well President Faust handled his trials in this life
and how much he has been a wonderful example to all of us because of how much
he loved the Savior and the gosple.
I shall miss you and I shall never forget the lesson you gave me on the
importance of giving. You had things in this life but you gave your life for
the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We'll miss you...thank you for being such a really good witness of Christ. As
President Thomas S. Monson said "We will see you tomorrow".
I will miss his words of wisdom, his intelligence and knowledge of the gospel
and his firm teachings to help us become better members of the church. May the
Lord continue to bless Sis. Faust and the whole family as they mourn the loss of
a loved one. Pres. Faust was surely a man of God. I will miss hearing your
voice during General Conference. You will be surely missed but your teachings
will always be within our hearts. Thank you Pres. James E. Faust for your love,
example and everything you have done and shown to us as members.
We'll miss you...thank you for your life of service..
I didn't know the man but this is surely a lovely tribute. Seeing how many
lives he influenced here says more about him than even his own funeral.
I really can't beleive I see a McDonalds banner inside the article.It's
horrible!Don't you respect this person and his death enough?
President Faust was a worthy example to us all.
On behalf of the entire Faust family we want to thank each of your for your
thoughtful expressions of love for our father. He was a great man who blessed
thousands of lives. The Faust family has been overwhelmed by the thousands of
messages we have received from all over the world. We thank you and please know
that we have been comforted by your words.Faithfully yours,Marcus G. Faust
I had the privilege of meeting him in person on one occasion and knew I had been
in the presence of a great man. Heaven will be a little better place with him
there. May God bless his family.
President Faust's words influenced my life more than any other person's in
recent years. God bless all of us who he left behind.

Um filho de Jesus Cristo que sempre nos tocou com o seu corao cheio de amor e
humildade. Obrigado por seu trabalho lindo de caridade que o senhor prestou a
humanidade. Amo voc irmo.
A wonderful person.Thanks, DMN, for a nice obit rich with factual examples
as opposed to characterizations and descriptions.The quoted exchange
between Packer and Faust is priceless - he could be called a great man on the
basis of that event alone.
A conference talk by President Faust changed my life and every talk he has given
since has touched my heart and brought me nearer to the Savior. I am grateful
for his life of love and service.
A life well lived! May we do likewise.
He was truely called from the Most High, by God himself, and it is a great lose
for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Elder Faust moved in to my ward when I was a teenager in the late '70s. A great
inspiration to all the youth. I remember when he and Ruth briefly danced with
all the youth at a ward dinner-dance. He tried to make a difference with
everyone. He frequently visited the youth classes and quorums on Sunday and
helped us feel God. I was grateful to know him.
I have always enjoyed President Faust's talks and articles in the Ensign
magazines. His recent message about forgiveness through the story about the
Amish school children's tragedy really touched me. He will be truly missed by
me and my family and by the members of the Yahata Branch in Japan.
I converted to the church 8 years ago and President Faust has always been of
great influence in my life. I will surely miss him.
he was a great man
I was very touched by President Faust talk at General Conference on the "Power
of Forgiviness." I teach R.S. fourth Sunday and as I was studying his talk
again to teach the sister an over powering feeling came over me to send a copy
of his talk to my Aunt Nellie (not a member of the church) who has not spoken to
her son in twelve years. When I was visiting with my Aunt in May she told me
that she and her husband had just finished with their will. She proceeded to
tell me she was not leaving one penny for her son and there was to be a closed
gasket so her son Fred could not see them. I didn't know what the battle was
all about between my Aunt, Uncle and cousin but I felt impressed to write her a
letter along with the talk. My Mother who comes from a family of twelve have
tried for twelve years to stop the battle. My cousin is now suffering with lung
cancer and doesn't have long to live. In the letter I told my Aunt and Uncle to
read President Faust talk and whatever the battle was about to forget it and
move on. I told them I loved them and how much their son needed closure at this
time. Two weeks after I wrote my Aunt she responed with a letter thanking me
for my concern and was so touched by my pleding for them to get back together
that they took the first step and took their son out to eat on Father's Day.
She told me they never spoke of the past but would visit regularly. Oh, how
grateful I am for President Faust example and the power of his talk. We will
miss him. My deepest sympathy on your great loss.

It is with great sadness I write these words. I have had a disturbed feeling
within myself since the early hours of Friday morning, only to find out that
Pres. James E Faust has passed away. I feel a great sadness for his family, I
pray that the lord will bless them and comfort them. I pray that I will be a
third of the man he has been, my love and condolences to all his family.
From James Broom 1st councelor E.Q.P. Ayr Ward
I will miss Pres. Faust more than I can say. He touched my heart so many times
and in ways nobody ever did. His words always touched my soul and made me feel
special, eventhough he didnt know me at all. He made me feel that I can do
anything I set my mind to do, and that no obstacle is ever too great if we have
the Lord on our side. I met him many times over these 35 years in the church,
and always felt the spirit with him. Although he is gone from this earth, he
will always be in my heart.
President Faust once said: " If I could be remembed for three things in this
life after i die it would be:1) A good husband.2) A good
father.3) A good deciiple of Jesus Christ.He achived
those three things. He will be missed but not forgotten.
I have been blessed to have seen President Faust speak on several occasions. He
will be missed by all. My prayers are with his family and all those who love
him as I do.
I was greatly impressed when he and Elder Maxwell humbly and self-effacingly
entertained questions from the audience at a priesthood leadership meeting 5
years ago. President Faust shared how Elder Maxwell was engaged in a personal
ministry beyond his own calling in visiting those who were sick with cancer, and
that he (President Faust) was also visiting with non-members in his
neighborhood up the canyon as an extra-ministerial good will "hometeaching"
effort. I'm sure that all our deceased Apostles are encountering many more
friends with equal compassion and good will on the other side of the veil.
What a great loss for all of us, but we know that he is in a better place and
that he continues to serve on the other side of the veil. We will miss him
greatly, especially to see him and listen to him speak during general
conference. What a fine example and leader! Our heartfelt condolences go out
to the Faust family, and know that you are all in our prayers at this time and
always. God bless!Alofa tele,Purcell Family - Laie,
I never met President Faust, but knowing his son, Marcus faust, our bishop, I
feel like I know him very well. Him and his family are such a great example to
my family. We feel privaleged to know and interact with them.Our hearts go
out to his family. Hopefully one day we will meet him on the other side at the
gateways of heaven. With much Love,
im so sad everytime i listen to coference i here him

que dios le bendiga eternamente presidente Faust, lo quiero mucho.
Sister Ruth, We wanted you to know that we are saddened by the loss of President
Faust, but know he was a good man, a kind man, a real gentle-man. We had the
occasion to meet Pres Faust a couple of years ago at a Church Auxilliary
meeting. In fact, we attended this mostly social gathering because he was the
Keynote Speaker. He was lively, spirited and fun, and spoke to the Doctors
directly about thier value in serving others unselfishly. Later, he sat with us
at our table for dinner and was so kind to everyone in the room who obvioulsy
were touched by his message. We know he is feeling a measure of rest, the
Saviors love and the joy that only comes from serving as he did. We will miss
him, his messages, his voice, his kindness.We extend our hand to you, oour
prayers for your family as you honor his passing, and as your family misses him
The world is a greater place because he was in it. He is surely encircled about
in the arms of our Savior!
His life has been an encouragement for me. He will be dearly missed. I will
never forget his encouraging words to uplift and calm my soul.
Hi! I love Pdte. Faust he shares his love and words and witty love. He shared
his words and I love the scriptures! Grace!
We are sorry to hear of the passing of President Faust. We pray that the
Spirit be with his family during this difficult time, and that they may find
peace and comfort knowing he has returned home to his Father in Heaven... and
may he enjoy the company he is now blessed to be a part of! A wonderful example
of what we all should strive for in this life!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.Thank you for all the talks
you gave during the conferences. Till we meet again President Faust.
Pres. Faust had a gift for saying important truths in a memorable and wonderful
way. I have truely come to love him more each year as I hear him speak.
Several of his quotes are on sticky notes posted in our home. Thank you, Pres.
As a convert, I always looked forward to General Conference for several reasons.
President Monson was a great speaker who will be missed. Just think of the
welcome that he got at the pearly gates!
Your words and life have been an actual example of living the Gospel and putting
our Saviour in the centre of every decision. Your boldness to defend the gospel
is the greatest characteristic of your own. I love you.Till we'll meet
You will be sorely missed, President Faust! You've been an inspiration to me as
you handled your disability with dignity while I still struggle with mine own.
Your family is in our prayers.
I thoroughly savored the words of his First Presidency messages, especially the
one on Forgiveness at General Conference. I know I will miss President Faust, as
will the entire church and all those whom he has so influenced and touch. My
love and prayers go out to President Faust and his loved ones at this difficult
I had the priviledge of seeing Elder Faust at Ricks College in Rexburg Idaho(as
it was known) while on my mission in 1982.I can remember the strong
testimony of the Savior and the many references to his sweet wife.This was an Apostle, a Prophet and Seer of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I will truly miss President Faust so much! What a great man!
It's sad that President Faust has moved on to thenext world. He set a
Great example for all of ushere in this life. He was a very dedicated
leader who spoke with a voice of Authority with Gentle Kindness.... A very warm
and humble person. I'm sure his Great talents and warmth will be a blessing to
those in the Spirit World and beyond. God Bless his family at this sad time and
God Bless his Legacy and our memories of him for individual guidance.
We never meet but i know he is really a prophet of God. His messages were so
profound and has blessed me and my family too. Pres. Faust was indeed a great
Leader. I really love to hear his messages.
Thank the Lord for Deseret News. I went to CNN and Yahoo News and what do I get
about President Faust? Nothing. Nada. Zip. It's hard enough being on the east
coast away from my family--but to only find out through the Deseret News makes
me mad. If the Pope gets a cold it's world news. I'm saddened by how other news
companies in this country ignore such a great man. Thanks for the
wonderful coverage Des News. Love the new website.
We were saddened to hear of the loss of President Faust. What a wonderful,
Christ-centered life he lived!He was always a perfect example to all of
us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his outstanding family. Please know of
our love and respect for this great man. Rijeka, Croatia
My love for the gospel was fueled by his general conference addresses. Our
family and I will miss him greatly. We send our love and sincere gratitude for
the entire Faust family. May the peace and comfort of our Lord be with you
I love President Faust! We will all miss him and remember his humility,
kindness, sweet humor, forgivness and peace. My love and thanks goes to you,
Sister Faust and your family! May the Lord comfort and bless each of you.
How great it is to have the 12 aposiles guide us all thank you pre Faust for
serving a great misson on earth and loveing us all.you will be missed we love
you and your family.
We never did meet in person, but I felt very close to President Faust when he
gave his talks. I will surely miss seeing him and hearing him in the next
general conference. He was one of my favorite speakers. I will never forget his
last talk on forgiveness. I will miss him dearly, but I will remember him
always.Sidney Ward, Dayton Ohio East Stake
President Faust's most recent comments on forgiveness will be words many of us
will always remember. A man you could tell was forgving of all.
What a great man! He was such a great speaker with such a soothing voice. I
just loved hearing him speak so sweetly about his wife. Wow! I'm so happy for
him that he's with her now. He will be missed here.
This is so sad. I just flew home and found out. What a sad day indeed.
I've never had a grandfather in this life, if i had the chance i would loved for
president James Faust to have filled the empty spot in my heart for a loving
grandfather, i will miss his kind and loving spirit, this last conference talk
on forgiveness was one that will touch my heart forever truly was a apostle and
prophet, I'm thankful for the conference dvds, i shall always be able to see him
and listen to his inspired words, we love you,and pray for the spirit of comfort
and peace to be with your family.
I joined the church in 1998. President Faust has been a guide and a comfort to
me over the years. He always inspired me to live a better life, in a quiet,
gentle way. I remember watching one of my first General Conferences and he
related the Flexible Flyer story. One of my all time favorites. I have it in a
binder and read it every Christmas with my family. He always had a way of
showing us how to live the gospel in ways that were doable. I will miss him. My
love and heart go out to his family and all that mourn his passing...He was
truly a man of God.
We were blessed to have him for all these years. What a great leader he is, we
loved hearing him speak. What a great example he set as a true apostle of our
Savior. May the Lord bless his family at this time and may we always remember
the teachings of this great man.
President James Esdras Faust has been a perfect instrument of Jesus Christ. We
will Never forget His teachings. (",)
President Faust taught by example of how to live a life focused on God and
family and he touched us all and he will be deeply missed. I heard him give a
conference talk once, years ago, and his love for people and the Lord shone on
his face and his voice rang with the truth of his convictions. We are all
blessed in that at least his words are still with us. My deepest condolences to
Truly a great leader who was given what appeared to be a new lease on life when
called to be Pres. Hinckley's counselor. I met him in 1990 when I brought a
group of Soviet dignitaries to Salt Lake City. The Church requested to host them
at a luncheon. Elder Faust, then not of the First Presidency, was our host. He
told me he was the host because he was the only member of the 12 weak in health
so he had to stay in town. Self effacing as usual. But he looked so weak. When
he was called to be in the First Presidency I couldn't help but be shocked by
how much better he looked. And, in fact, he looked far better these past 15
years than that day with the Soviets in SLC. We're grateful the Lord nourished
and revived this good and talented leader.
I love President Faust, I love his his perfect example of goodness, kindness,
happiness . He is a Holy man and Ill miss him forever but my heart will always
be greatful for his graet teachings.I pray for his family to feel peace and
We will miss President Faust and his teachings. He has been an inspiration and
a great example for all fathers in the world. We thank God for his life of
service and commitment.
Thanks elder Faust for you extraordinary work in the church. We love, elderBlessing for your family, from Chile.
Pres Faust, He was loved by the Brazlian people, He served the Lord with all
heart and his power, He knew us, we will miss him. Our condolences for his
family. We pray for them be conforted.Vepo Family - Florianopolis/SC
I love to the servant of the Lord. President James E. Faust. he was like a Dad
for me in every Conference when i listened his words.my family and I love
you. and praye with your family. Familia Puchoc Lavado
Not only was President Faust a humble, kind man whose teachings should be
emulated by all (read his talk on forgiveness again and his last article in the
Ensign... you can never go wrong), but, like most of the First Presidency and
the Twelve, had a humor that was completely his own. My favorite
memory of President Faust did not come from General Conference or the Ensign,
but from something he said in the Church film, "Special Witness of Jesus
Christ".I will never forget the first time I heard his testimony of the Savior
while he was walking on the old foundation stones of the original Nauvoo temple.
His humility was amazing. He emphasized that he was an ordinary man, with an
extraordinary calling, then bore his testimony of Jesus Christ. My hair still
stands on the back of my neck when I remember how he said that while he cannot
speak of experiences deeply sacred, he said he knew of a certain surety that
Jesus Christ lives, while staring directly into the camera. Look at his eyes. He
knows. He probably has seen Him. One of God's mouthpieces regretfully
has passed, but thank heaven he is in a better place, where he can have a joyful
reunion with those who have gone on before him...
President Faust. Thank you for your kind,gracious, humble life. We love you.
We will miss you.
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
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.
My wife and I are saddened with the news of the passing of President Faust. Our
prayers are with his family.
Thank you President Faust for your spirit, inspiring words, and gentle example.
We love you, and will miss you.
He was a great man and apostle. He always spoke with the spirit. I will miss him
very much. His family will always be in my prayers.
HE Was Loved And By Meny Those here on Earth and Those In The Heavens!!! He is
missed here and welcome Their!!! Our thoughts and preyers are with his Friends,
Family and loved ones!!!
We will miss President Faust. We loved his example of humility and kindness. We
hope to live up to your teachings.
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...
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
We will miss President Faust. His last General Conference address is legendary
and will take its place among the church's greatest sermons. Our prayers are
with his family. We send our love
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
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.
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
He was gentle man. He always had kinds words to say and never thought of
himself. I will miss him a lot. I send out my most heart felt love and prayers
for sister Fuast and her family. He can never be replaced in my heart. I loved
his words of kindness and I will miss him very much.
He just gave a lovely conference address. He lived every day with dignity to
I along with the church mourn the passing of a great and noble man of God, I
will miss him and extend my thoughts and prayers to his family. may we all take
comfort in the words of the Hymn "We thank thee O God for a Prophet", Thus on to
eternal perfection the honest and faithful will go..
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 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.
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.
Ns brasileiros estamos tristes com a perda do querido Presidente Faust. So Paulo
perde um cidado paulistano que muito amou esta cidade e este pas.
We will always remember him and his gentle ways. He represented the Church in a
beautiful way. Our thoughts go to his family. We loved listening to his
conference talks and learned so much. He was trully a great man.
President Faust will be sorely missed his counsel his genuine love for Gods
children and his living example that Christ lives. I am deeply sorry for his
loss and my prayers and love go out to his beloved family.His memory will live
on for ever through his teachings and books. Thankyou President Faust for being
just you, you are my hero.
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.
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
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.

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."
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.
Auf wiedersehen, President Faust
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
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!
mis condolensias a la famila faust , el a sido un hombre de Dios
My condolences to the family on the passing of their husband, father,
grandfather and great grandfather. President Faust was a true teacher and
example of the Gospel. He will be missed.
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.
Humility and purity radiated from President Faust's eyes. Well done, thou good
and faithful servant!
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!
Verdaderamente estoy agradecido por el gran ejemplo y enceansas que elder Faust
nos ha dado, hermano Latorraca.
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 veryfamiliar 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.
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
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.
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
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.
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~
Since I was a small kid, I remember Pres. Faust delivering his inspired words at
general conferences. I will miss you, President. We love you.
It is so sad to see a good man go. He have showed me thru testimonies not just
to die for Christ but how to live for Christ, how to share my love with
others.I will miss you President Faust.till we meet again.love.
thank you, brother faust for everything that made for us we will always remind
him. we love him
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.
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.
I am really suffering his death. He was a wise humble man of God and his words
have been a balm for my soul.
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.
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.
President Faust will be truly missed. My heart and prayers go out to the
family. Happy reunions await.
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.
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.
Quando o Presidente Faust serviu como missionrio de tempo integral ele lanou
alicerces slidos do evangelho em Curitiba. Depois disso, manteve sempre seu
carinho especial pelo povo de nossa cidade. Sentiremos muito a falta do
Presidente Faust na dedicao do templo que est sendo construdo em Curitiba.
My father died about 6 weeks ago. President Faust, even though he was very ill,
sent a letter of sympathy to our family. We will always cherish the words of
comfort he gave us.He was a great friend and my kids remember eating Jello
with him on my parents patio....He was a wonderful example to me and my
President Faust will be truly missed here. His teachings and the Love reflected
in all that he has done as well as in the music lyrics to the Song "This is the
Christ" His testimony has touched so many of us through that song. What a
powerful and yet, loving message he has left and shared with us all- I hope to
be such a great person as he is. God Bless President James E. Faust.
Our thoughts and prayers are with President Faust's family at this time. He was
a wonderful example and will be greatly missed.
President Faust was a wonderful gracious caring leader, always concerned about
people. I recall working with him on a Conference held in Miami, Florida where
he presided. He personally asked me for a list of people to thank who put the
meeting together. He had a great love for the Latin people who understood their
needs. Always praising and kind to bring out the best in people. It seems like
yesterday 1978 he become an Apostle and Special Witness for the Lord, his
clarion testimony will be greatly missed. The last Single Adult Fireside he gave
a remarkable address, down to earth and humble inspite of his mortal weaknesses,
he lifted all Spirituallly even when not able to physically to do the lifting.
Our family has known the Fausts for over 40 years. They are the salt of the
earth. We love them and our hearts and prayers are with them.
I loved President Faust. I will always remember how sad he felt about not
filling the wood box for his Grandmother Mary. He said: "I feel ashamed of
myself and have regretted my omission for all of my life. I hope someday to ask
for her forgiveness." I know they have embraced and she has forgiven him. I
will miss this great man.
recuerdo su ltimo discurso,aprendi mucho de l, es un hombre maravilloso,un gran
ejemplo para todos,Dios lo bendiga, oramos por su familia,gracias por todas sus
enseanzas Presidente Faust, le amamos.
God Bless Pres. James E. Faust, He was a Man of God and I am thankful to have
been able to be taught by him. His missionary work moves forth in the spirit
President Faust is the only apostle I have ever met. Two weeks after I was
called to be a Bishop, in the Trona Ward, in Trona Ca. President Faust came to
reorganize out Stake. He interviewed me at that time talking like we were old
friends. I realized later, that I had had a worthiness interview, without
knowing it was happening. I always wanted to conduct interviews like that. Our
prayers are certainly with his family at their time of grief.
Another wonderful missionary returns home. My thoughts and prayers are with the
Faust family at this time. What a blessing it is to know that Families are
Forever. I know that the truth of the Gospel will bring the Faust family comfort
at this difficult time. Death is not the end.
He will be missed. He is a wonderful man with so much wisdom. He was a great
example. I pray for comfort for his family and their loss.
Dearest Faust Family,I thank the Lord for the precious spirit we all
were blessed with when President Faust became a part of our lives. How deeply
loved he was by me and likewise will be missed. May the Comforter bless you with
peace during this time of sorrow knowing he stands with the Lord's anointed.
I had the honor to hear his conference address on "Forgiveness." I will never
forget the message that he delivered that day. May the Lord bless Pres. Faust
for all he has done on the Earth and my He also bless his family during this
time. Obrigado Presidente eu e Brasil fomos muito abencoados com seu exemplo e
Your word will live on in my heart. I pray I can live up to all I have learned
from you. Thank you President Faust.
The following text message from our 19 yr old daughter demonstrates his
influence on those who have eyes to see and ears to hear and follow a servant of
our living God: "President James E Faust passed away early this morning. Take a
few minutes today to remember our beloved apostle and his family".
I will always remember President Faust. He was a member of the First Presidency
that I grew up with. I will miss that great, loving, intelligent man and his
great testimony and dedicated service to the Lord. His family is in my thoughts
We will deaply miss President Faust,but will continue to feel his love, through
the serviceto the Lord that he has rendered on earth and will continue to
do so through the eternities.My blessings and prayers to the Faust Family.
Eu o amo sinceramente.Homem simples, tinha grande amor pelo Brasil.Seu exemplo e ensinamentos mudaram minha vida I testify that his man is
a apostle of the son of God.Oro para que possamos nos encontrar
novamente.Obrigado Pres. Faust.
well miss u elder faust, i grew up listening to u
Just reading these posts have strengthened our testimonies. One post had only
two words which says it all. Thank You. It would have been all Brother Faust
ever wanted from anyone.
When a great leader and prophet of the Lord passes, we know he is welcomed into
the realm of peace--then we are left to try to fill the void in our heart his
passing has left. May the Lord bless us all to fill it with a life dedicated to
service as advocated by Pres. Faust.
Every time he spoke, I felt like I was listening to the savior himself. Thank
you President Faust for always restoring hope in all of us. God bless your
We have truly been uplifted by this wonderful man. In our quest to be Disciples
of Christ, we need only look at our First Presidency for the example. I will
never forget the blessing he gave me during his last Conference address
concerning Forgiveness. He was speaking directly to me and I kept telling him to
stop, but I guess he couldn't hear me. heheOur gratitude is directed
toward President Foust's survivors, they have sacrificed their time on our
behalf and I know they are richly blessed for it. It's amazing that one can grow
to love someone we have never met, but we love President Foust and know that he
stands before the Savior now and receives love beyond measure.
I'm sure other than the fact that he will most assuredly miss his association
with his family and friends who are still on this side of the veil, President
Faust must be having a great time reuniting with loved ones and other great
leaders of the Church who have passed before him. My condolences go to the
Faust family for their loss, but my congratulations go as well to know that
their loved one passed away a faithful man, and will enjoy the blessings
We pray for blessings of comfort and peace to President Faust's family. Take
comfort in knowing that he has heard the words from our Redeemer "Well done thou
good and faithful servant..."
President Faust has been a personal hero of mine for years, professionally and
spiritually. I treasure the gift of his autographed biography. I will forever
remember his kind greeting when my wife and I passed him in a hallway at Church
headquarters. The Church has lost a giant of a man but his personal influence
will linger for years. Thank you for your inspiring life, President Faust.
Obrigada PresidenteVoc um exemplo a todos ns BrasileirosTe
We especially enjoyed your talks in General Conference. Your sweet spirit
shined through your mortal tabernacle and you spoke as a true apostle of the
Lord. What a tremendous loss for the Church and especially the First
Presidency. Thank you President Faust for a job so well done. We pray that the
Spirit of the Lord will comfort and bless your family.
i give me condolences to the faust family. he was a wonderful man and knew that
depending on the lord was the only way to stay on teh straight and narrow. he
has taught me alot with the conference talkes to the stories in the ensign. he
will always stay with all members of the church. he will be missed.
Thank you President Faust for all the love you have given over the years. Our
prayers are with the Faust family at this time. We love you.
Today may ne a sad day for us to lose such a great teacher, but What a great
blessing to all those waiting in the spirit world to learn of the gospel.
Fausts,May the good Lord comfort you at this time of need as you bid
farewell to your loved one. He was truly a good and great example and a great
leader. I will surely miss seeing him and hearing him during the next general
conference. He was one of my favorite speakers. His legace will forever live
on and will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God
Thank you President Faust. We love you!
We appreciate so much the countless hours of service given by the entire Faust
family. We love and pray for you during this time of loss.
Numa Conferncia Regional em Recife/Brazil, o Pres. Faust, disse-me olhando nos
olhos - "Sou um BRASILEIRO!". Sabamos do grande amor que nutria pelo povo
brasileiro. Extendemos nossos sentimentos aos seus amados familiares. Que o
Senhor os abenoe neste momento dificil.
Thank you, President Faust, for your wonderful service, leadership, and
knowledge of the Gospel. You will be missed!
Fausts, May the Lord comfort you as well as President Faust's words
comforted me. He was one of the finest instruments in the Lord's symphony to
listen to. My thoughts and prayers for you. God bless.
Thank you President Faust for your beloved example and kind way you shared your
testimony with all of us. You radiated the Spirit of your testimony in your
General Conference addresses. Your loving words still are in my heart. You are
I am overcome with joy thinking of the reunion this faithful servant had with
our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
All my love and prayers to Sister Faust and the rest of your family.
You have inspired me by your life even today. Thank you
A sweet, gentle giant among men. As a new convert to the Church, I noticed
President Faust's unique wit and grandfatherly wisdom the first time I saw one
of his older talks broadcast on the BYU Channel. Just last night, while
rereading this month's First Presidency Message, "Welcoming Every Single One,"
his extraordinary love for, and understanding of the Savior shone
O Pres. Faust foi uma beno para todo o povo brasileiro, pelo amor que tinha por
todos ns, pelo exemplos e ensinamentos deixados. Que o Pai Celestial possa
abenaoar sua famlia e amenizar o pesar e a saudade por sua partida.Muito
Obrigado Presidente por tudo.
Presidente Faust, nosso apstolo "brasileiro", continua a obra do Senhor do outro

We send our prayers to Ruth and the rest of your family. What a wonderful man!
I will never forgot the kindness, compassion, caring, and love that you could
hear in his voice during talks at Conferences. You will be greatly missed Pres.
Faust. Thank you for your undying example.
We have all loved the spirit that you shared with us at General Conference. We
all loved your talks and councel about the family and how much it is important
to have a family. Your words and loving councel has helped us and have meant to
all of us. Thank you and hope that your family will have many blessings in the
near future. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family.
The church is true, and its been a blessing for me to grow with such a great
influence from one of Lords Annointed, as President Faust was. I ve never met
him, but I definitly consider him as a great friend. Buenos Aires, Argentina.
President Faust changed my life. I will be forever grateful to him.
Su partida nos pone triztes pero que hermoso es saber que hoy esta en los
brazos de nuestro Padre ,gracias por todas las ensenanzas que nos dejo y por ese

Thank you for the sweet spirit you have shared with us. Your teachings and
loving counsel have meant so much to us. You are a wonderful example of a
righteous Priesthood holder. The emphasis you have placed on the importance of
fatherhood is precious to us all.
I haven't been a member very long, but I have always enjoyed the words of
inspiration he has spoken of. I have felt a love from all of the first
presidency and especially President Faust. This is a great loss to the Church
and he will be truely missed by all. I also want to thank his family for sharing
him with the world and offer our prayers to them in their grief. May the
blessings of Heavenly Father be with you now and in the future.

Our hearts are full of both happiness and saddness at the news of Elder Faust's
passing. What a great man! Thank you Sister Ruth and family for supporting him
in his callings and lending him to us. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Thank you Heavenly Father for letting someone so perfect stay as long as he did.
Os nosso coracoes sao cheios de felicidade e tristeza nas noticias

Thank you for stopping and taking a few minutes to talk to my dad and I, It made
an impression on me that has lasted a life time. We will miss you President
Faust, and pray for your family and loved ones.

Uncle Jim was a great man. He was always wanting to help our family. It has been
hard on our family, but we know that we will see him again because families are
forever. We know that he will be watching over everyone of us, and we will
always remember his great service.
"Well done, thy good and faithful servant..." My family are recent
converts to the church and I was inspired by President Faust's gentle manner and
the obvious love and faith he had in the gospel. You will be missed, brother.
We love President Faust. He has been an inspiration to all of us.

Passing is a sweet home coming for President Faust, who exemplified perfect
discipleship. His example, service and teachings will never be forgotten!
Just now when I saw the article stating that President Faust had died, tears
immediately filled my eyes. My 4-year-old son asked what was wrong, why I had
exclaimed, "Oh no!" I told him what had happened, and he asked why I was
crying. I said I was crying because I was sad, and he asked why I was sad. I
realized then that I shouldn't be sad; after all, the Gospel teaches us that
this life isn't the end. President Faust lived a good, honest and exemplary
life, and he is now able to be reunited with loved ones and especially with his
Father in Heaven and Saviour Jesus Christ. So if anything, I should be
extremely happy for him. I am grateful for this lesson my 4-year-old taught me,
and I am grateful to President Faust for his life of service and love. My
prayers are with his family, that they will be comforted during this time of
President Faust,Thank you for speaking at my dad's funeral. I'm sorry I
didn't give you the respect you deserved, though, I'm sure you forgave me for
it. I have become a better person by your example of our Savior. My prayers are
with your family that they may be comforted at this time. One day I hope to be
like you. May you continue to touch the lives of those around you. You will be
We will miss this wonderfully articulate, kind, faithful leader. His talks were
masterful, his touch gentle, and his humor infectious. He is much loved, and
will be deeply missed.
I will miss you.

President Faust has been a great example of love and kindness to me. Thank you,
President Faust, for your testimonies, your service, your example, and your
love. My live have been blessed because of him. I will miss him in
conference but remember him always... President Faust may best be remembered for
the wonderful sermon on Forgiveness given at the April 2007 General conference.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Faust Family. Thank you for your

all of his service and leadership and especially his example! Our love and
prayers are with the Faust Family.
A great man and a great example. Thanks for your wonderful example and life. You
will be missed.
We are great fans of president Faust. We love to hear his testimony every time
he speaks. He is a true saint and appreciate his example of how to treat
people. His greatest example to us is how he treated his companion of 60+
years. Thank you for his service in the Kingdom of God. Our prayers go out to
your family.Merv and Pauline Evans of Taylorsville Utah
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Faust Family. President Faust will be
greatly missed. He was a good example and good inspiration to all of us. We will
miss his heartfelt stories.

kindness, etc. He truly is a man of God. How we will miss his Conference talks
and hearing his kind, loving voice. Our condolences to his family. Thank you
President Faust, we love you.
You will be greatly missed but your amazing example and testimony will never be
forgotten. I appreciate your service as a true witness of The Lord Jesus Christ.

We want to thank President Faust's family for allowing him to serve all of us so
well. My first thoughts were to Thank my Father in Heaven for this righteous
man. We will miss his presence here. We have been inspired by his life. Our
thoughts and prayers to his family.

He has gone home having endured to the end, a good and faithful servant in his
first estate and second. Today he will be in Paradise with all his loved ones
that went ahead. The saints here in Ireland will miss Elder Fausts wise counsel
and we will also miss seeing his wonderful countenance at general conference
time in the live broadcasts. We are blessed to have lived at the same time as
such a wonderful man of God. Our tears are for ourselves for he is happy now.
President Faust exemplified the humility and unconditional love of a true
disciple of Christ. His kindness and compassion will be missed. Our thoughts and
prayers are with his family.
Many times has he been an instrument in the Lord's hand in bringing the Spirit
to my heart. I believe many millions of people could say the same. My love to
President Faust and his family forever for the time they gave to allow him to
influence those like me. Thank you all and may God be with you now and always.

my children. We are so grateful that your lives have touched ours in such a way

you, Ruth, and your family at this time of great loss. We love you.

kind man. He will be missed and I will treasure the time he spent with us.
President Faust has been in my life now for 9 years. I will miss his insightful
wisdom and his spirit.
I enjoyed listening to him speak when I watched General Conference. His
demeanor and spiritual nature was such an inspiration to me. The Faust family
will be in my prayers, but I'm sure they know that he is in a much better place
now and that they will see him again. President Faust will be greatly missed.

When I heard of President Faust's passing this morning wonderful feeling came to
my mind. It was of a beautiful reunion that is going on on the over side of the
veil! "My Friend!" echoed in my heart and soul. A mission well done and the
embrace of our Savior! Thank you, Brother Faust!
Presidente Faust, me sinto privilegiada por ter te conhecido pessoalmente e ter

saudade, de suas visitas e discursos maravilhosos.
All the wonderful stories about how President Faust lived his life and cared
about others -- Hundreds of examples, in several languages! They are just a
small sample of the millions of hearts his words and examples have touched. I'm
absolutely certain he was warmly greeted by many, many grateful souls whom he
had touched in similar ways.Our thoughts and prayers are with his
wife and family.
President Faust knew my grandfather and spoke at my grandmother's funeral. He
was a treasure. He came to my medical office for treatment. He was always a
joy to see and a true example of what a man of God should be. He will be
Un hijo de Dios, con un tremendo amor por el projimo, lloramos tu partida pero

loving disciple of Christ. May we remember his example and well-taught

We will truly miss you President Faust... I had left the church and was just
coming back when I had the opportunity to sing in a choir for President Faust in
Stockton, California. He turned towards us with tears in his eyes and said, "Get
back Tabernacle Choir!" To feel his spirit was life changing for me. I was
baptized back into the church soon after. Our deepest prayers and thoughts go
with you and your family. I am so glad we know where we go after death and will
be able to meet again once more!
What an enduring symbol of strength, wisdom and testimony. For years an icon of
the truthfulness of the restored Church, President Faust will be remembered.
Well done, President Faust. Thanks to the Faust family for their sharing of
their father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and husband.
He will be missed but he has been welcomed on the other side. There is no
question in my mind that he is already hard at work continuing the Lords work
He was a seventy when I had the opportunity to listen him (I was an
missionary),at that time my english wasn't good,but that day I knew he was a
servent of our Lord,he spoke in english but my mind received the Lord's message
in my native language.He is a great rold model for young people.
My wife and I met President Faust at Hires Big H in Salt Lake City. He was
relaxed, said hello, and shook my wife's hand after finishing his hamburger. A
A true man of God has been called home today to continue His work. I shed tears
upon hearing the news. May I live to be an ounce of what this man was. I love
you, Pres. Faust.
The true depth of Christianity and guile-less nature of his soul, along with his
keen intellect, touched me deeply.
If William W. Phelps, the composer of many LDS hymns, were alive today, he would
write verse similar to 'Praise to the Man' for Brother James.
President Faust was a great inspiration to all of us and his strong testimony of
the Gospel never faultered. How we will miss him. Our love and prayers to his
family. He will be deeply missed.
We love and appreciate President Faust divinely inspired messages and the love
he has for the gospel and for all of us. We appreciate his example and his
family for sharing their lives with us. Our prayers and deepest appreciation
are with Sister Faust and family.
I have had the opportunity to meet Pres. Faust on several occasions, his son
Marcus was in my ward and I went to school with a couple of his grandchildren.
He was a great man, a role model for how a father and husband should be. He will
truly be missed, my thoughts and prayers are with his family.
El era el ejemplo singular del regran del Presidente John Taylor, "El Reino de
Dios o Nada." Gracias por su maravillosa vida, Presidente Faust.
Our hearts and prayers go to Sister Faust and their family. We know Father in
heaven will send the comforter. We loved President Faust. The Lord has called
home one of His Elect and we will miss him.
What a wonderful and touching tribute for a man so many knew and loved! I will
miss his gentle leadership!
I remember shaking President Faust's hand when I was a very young girl(He came
to our stake conference).This very small gesture showed me that I, a very small
girl, deserved his attention. I have loved him for that ever since. He was a
great man. To his family: Thank you for sharing him with us. He will be missed.
I love President Faust, and am so sad to lose his presence on this earth. He was
a gentle man, a man of integrity and I loved to hear him speak. He was also
impeccably dressed at all times, and this showed his reverence for his calling.
My prayers and sympathy to his family.
What a great man. He will be missed. I love his stories and gentleness.
President Faust, I love you so much. You will be in my heart forever!
EL cielo es bendecido y enriquesido hoy.You will be missed but never
forgotten.Gracias Pte.Faust what an inspiration to all us
I have the good fortune of being a member of the Oakton, Virginia Ward, where
Marcus Faust, Pres. Faust's son is the Bishop. I never had a chance to meet
Pres. Faust in person, but knowing his son, daughter-in-law, grandson and other
close family members, it is clear that only a very special man could have raised
such a wonderful family. My family loves Bishop Faust, Susan, John, Catherine
and the whole lot. They are great people, and I believe, a literal expression of
all that was best in the man. We will miss you Pres. Faust. Our thoughts are
with you Bishop and family.
I'll never forget the talk he gave at Conference when he related the story of
how his grandmother had asked him to bring in wood when he was a boy and he had
failed to do it - later he saw her doing the task. Even as late in his life as
it was when he told this story, he still wept at the thought of having let his
grandmother down. What a dear soul and powefully humble leader. His goodness
will be missed in this world and by all who knew him.
I WILL ALWAYS REAMBER THE DAY I MET YOU, I LOVE YOU, GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR
FAMILY. TILL WE MEET AGAIN.
Thank you for your service and wonderful example!We love you and will miss
His work here is done. Thank you President Faust for your unwaivering
testimony, your strong example and the love you have shown all of us. Your
words here on earth will be a lasting example for us to live our lives by. We
love you and will miss you - until we meet again.
his last talk on forgiveness was the best talk I have ever heard him give. it
will always be in my memory. I will miss his calming spirit. my love and
prayers go to his family.
Una gran perdida, el Presidente Faust por muchos aos nos enseo y testifico sobre
evangelio aun tengo en la retina su mensaje del perdon en la ultima conferencia
general de la Iglesia, lo lamento mucho y oro para que su familia sea
Pres. Faust has been an inspiration to us. He had a great way of teaching the
gospel. We have appreciated his kind, gentle ways and will truly miss him. Our
hearts and prayers go out to his family and close friends and associates.
I loved President Faust and will truly miss him. I will remember for the rest of
my life his story of not helping his Grandmother fill the wood bin when he
easily could have and the tears that still brought to his eyes after all those
years. It taught me a lot.
Presidente Faust, quando recebi a notcia hoje do su falecimento, fiquei triste,
mas pensei: ele j est junto do Senhor e Seus anjos. Tenho certeza disso, pois
nos discursos dele ele demonstrava um grande conhecimento da Deidade.Tenho
certeza que o Senhor o recebeu de braos abertos. O Senhor abenoar a irm Ruth
para que ela possa ter foras juntamente com sua famlia, para suportar a ausncia
do seu marido, pai, av... querido.
We loved President Faust and will miss him. He has been a great influence in our
lives. May his family be blessed in his temporary absense.
President Faust was an exceptionally great man!! He will be sorely missed.
Probably the most poignant talk I heard -- and best glimpse into the goodness of
President Faust's soul, was when he recounted the story of not helping his
grandmother get some firewood:"As a small boy on the farm during the
searing heat of the summer, I remember my grandmother Mary Finlinson cooking our
delicious meals on a hot woodstove. When the wood box next to the stove became
empty, Grandmother would silently pick up the box, go out to refill it from the
pile of cedar wood outside, and bring the heavily laden box back into the house.
I was so insensitive and interested in the conversation in the kitchen, I sat
there and let my beloved grandmother refill the kitchen wood box. I feel ashamed
of myself and have regretted my omission for all of my life. I hope someday to
ask for her forgiveness."Tears were streaming down his face and he
had difficulty speaking because he felt so sorry not helping his grandmother.
It provided a great view of the absolute integrity of this beloved man. I
learned so much from President Faust and grieve with millions of other Saints at
God bless you and your family President Faust. You were always an inspiration
to me. I treasure the times I met with you. Although I mourn your passing and
the loss of one so valiant in the faith, I rejoice in your righteous example of
one who endured to the end. I pray for peace for your family and loved ones.
In a world that celebrates evil more and more, may we all so strive to live like
President Faust is a wondeful man! I'll never forget his teachings!
Thank you Pres. Faust for your love, dedicated service and testimony.You have taught us how to follow our Savior.
I heard the news in an email my father sent to me. Tears immmediately came to my
eyes and I felt moved to pray for his family, and to again thank my Heavenly
Father for the blessing of living on this earth with Prophets and Apostles such
as President Faust! His kind face was always most welcome at conference, and his
testimony even more so. Thank you for sharing your husband, father, grandfather
and great-grandfather with all of us. Isn't it wonderful to have temple
blessings available to us? he exemplified building eternal relationships and I
President Faust's example of love and charity have touched millions of lives
across the nation. These comments demonstrate the love that so many in all
parts of the world have for him. What an inspiration to us all.
I have always been touched by the Spirit when President Faust speaks. He is a
great leader and the church will miss him greatly. Our prayers are for his
family and friends.
He is a great man. He inspired me to be better. I admired his humor, honesty
and dedication to the Lord. I am greatfull to his family for sharing so much
of him with us for such a long time. I'm sure he helped many many people.
President Faust, an angel unto mankind, now an angel of God. Via con Dios
Your devotion to your family, God, and His church is truly an eternal example
for all of us to follow. I am so grateful to you and your guiding influence in
my life. I hope to see you again.
I love you Pres. and Sister Faust and will miss you deeply. This world has lost
a great leader.
Who will replace the church's adopted grandfather? Who can measure the amount
of love he generated? His good works, his example, his spirit, and his
testimony were a mountain of strength for all who would take the time to listen
and watch. A true giant has fallen in the forest, but will not be forgotten.
He was good right to the very center of his bones. I will never forget hearing
him speak in person and jotting down what he said in the margins of my
scriptures. Here was a man who "knew" and when he testified that he knew, I
knew he knew! What a man!
Pte Faust, un hombre de Dios
President Faust practiced what he preached.. We will miss his kind and gentle
demeanor and his out stretched hand to all, regardless of stature. Now he is in
the company of the Lord.
Les mando mi mas sentido pesame por el fallecimiento del Elder Faust. Recuerdo
bien aquella vez que viajo a Buenos Aires, y recibio las amalgamas de oro de las
manos de hermanos carenciados; querian contribuir a la construccion del templo
de Brasil pero no tenian con que. Entonces se les occurrio regalar lo unico de
valor que tenian, que eran el oro de sus dientes. El Hermano Faust lloro de la
emocion a recibirlas.
May we all be as prepared as he was when it is our turn to go! We love him
and will miss him. I for one, will really miss listening to his Conference
talks. Although it is kind of a sad day for us, what a glorious reunion he must
El Presidente Fauts fue un hombre con un gran espiritu sus mensajes cambiaron
nuestras vidas y reconozco su gran don de enseanza em Mxico lo recordamos con
especial cario y se que el seor lo esta esparando con los brazos abiertos para
recibir a uno de sus hijos especiales que el seor bendiga a su hermosa familia y
les de la seguridad y el consuelo de que en el otro lado del velo ahora estara
al lado del seor.
The world is better than it was because Pres. Faust has been here. He will be
Pres. Faust is a man of God, full of love and kindness. I got the honor of
shaking his hand at church last month. He is an honest man. May prayers are
with his family.
Heaven may be richer for having him there, but we are very rich for having known
him, and for having heard and read his teachings.
Elder Faust touched my young family's heart with his heartfelt and spirit-filled
General Conference Talks. I will always remember my young children speaking his
name when asked who he was during our dinner time conversations. We won't
forget the lessons taught during his most recent talk on Forgiveness. Farewell,
Elder Faust and thanks for living what you believe and know to be true.
Presidente Faust que descanse en paz y que se encuentre con nuestro padre
Celestial por siempre, aca en Guatemala lo amamos y deseamos que la Familia del
Presidente se reponga de esta perdida tan Especial....que Dios los bendiga
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Faust family. I always looked forward to
hearng great words of wisdom from Pres. Faust at conference and I will miss
First, our deepest thoughts and prayers are with President Faust's family. What
a tribute to a man to have his children comment on his love and respect for his
sweet wife. The world would be a better place if more women were treated as
such, felt important and given the opportunity to be good mothers because they
felt loved and respected. What a great challenge to all the men who read this to
commit today to follow this great example. Heavenly Father expects this from you
and your sweethearts and children need this from you. Thank you to the Faust
family for supporting President Faust in his service to the Lord and all people.
We have all been greatly blessed.
Gentle and kind are the first words I think of when I think of Pres. Faust. He
was a gentle giant and will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to
his family and to Pres. Hinckley and all those who were his close associates.
Heaven is richly blessed today. You will be missed but never forgotten. Thank
you President Faust.
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
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.
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.
President Faust inspired so many people. He will be greatly missed.
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!
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
Thank you for everything you've done for this great Work, President Faust. Our
prayers are with you and your family during this time.
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.
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.
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
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
What a great example to all of us. My thoughts are with his family.
Is there any question Heaven is a LOT richer today? I know I am for the gift of
just meeting this gentleman once..isn't it a shame there's a lot of people in
this world that never knew this man..a kinder man I do not think could
exist...may his example...be our example!Bonnie
Our deepest love and sympathies from Toronto Canada. My the Lord recieve him
with his arms wide open. Well done thy good and faithful servant. May our
thoughts and prayers be with the Faust family, and our Prophet at this time.
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
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.
Thank you for fulfilling all my expectations of a Christlike hero!
I had just finished taking President Hinckley's portrait and was kneeling down
packing my gear up outside in the hallway when I felt a very strong hand on my
shoulder and then someone reached around and began stroking my beard in a
teasing fashion. I looked up to see President Faust smiling down at me. He
didn't say a word. But I said, yes I know I need to shave it off. And I did.
That was the type of man he was, gentle, yet persuasive. That was not my only
encounter with President Faust over the years, but certainly one of the most
memorable. I know he has left a lasting legacy with his poignant, inspiring
words and counsel. Our lives have been blessed because of him.
From all my family in South Africa, heartfelt condolences to the Faust family.
Pres Faust was a powerful influence in my life. He is a great man and I don not
doubt that he now dwells in the presence of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Elder Faust had a surpringly gentle way, a great grandfatherly influence of
wisdom and kindness. We found ourselves touched and influenced by his words. How
can this be? Perhaps it is because there is and was a certain noble goodness
about the man that endeared him to us. He influenced, taught, lifted us...in
ways we did not expect. We don't know much, but we know this man was a servant,
a godly man. We did not know him. He did not know us. Yet his influence remains.
And, so, we love him.
I still remember President Faust's visit to our ward when I was a new member.
His closing, simple testimony of our savior Jesus Christ was so powerful that I
felt it like a physical presence and it brought tears to my eyes. Our families
prayers go out to the Faust family.
My deepest condolences and love to the Faust family during this time of
separation. President Faust lived a life worthy of emulation. May we always
remember his kind face and gentle words of inspiration to follow the Savior.
As a life long member of the Church, perhaps no other talk touched me more
deeply than Elder Faust's final conference address, "The Healing Power of
Forgiveness". Elder Faust was a wise, gifted, and insightful speaker. But his
messages carried meaning to me because of who he was - not jut what he said. He
seemed to be innately in tune with circumstances of our time, including our need
to repent, forgive and live the "Weightier Matters of the Law". In that address,
Elder Faust reminded us that," Jesus introduced a higher and more
difficult standard of human conduct. It is simpler as well as more difficult
because it focuses on internal rather than external requirements: Do unto others
as you would have them do unto you. 3 Love your neighbor as yourself. 4 When
smitten, turn the other cheek. 5 When asked for a coat, give your cloak also. 6
Forgive, not just once but seventy times seven. 7 This was the essence of the
new gospel. There was more emphasis on do than do not. More moral agency was
given to each of us."How I will miss Elder Faust.
He was a great man called of God, he will be missed dearly, his testimony will
carry on, not only in this life but the next. I always enjoyed listening to him
speak at Conference. My life has been greatly blessed by his testimony and
example. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and to all those he
touched all over the world.
President Faust may best be remembered for the wonderful sermon on Forgiveness
given at the April 2007 General conference. Those who wish to honor
his work and legacy would be well advised to follow the admonitons made in that
I believe that sure that saints all over the world will miss President Faust but
I'm specially grateful for his service, leadership and love to the people in
Brazil. We love you Pres. Faust! Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Faust
Family. May the Lord relieve them!
I met President Faust as a young missionary in Brazil when we had Thanksgiving
dinner with him in 1975. He shared stories and feelings and most importantly
his testimony with us. He has alwsys been one of my favorites. He will be
What a great example he has been for our youth. After attending a General
Priesthood Session our youngest son once mentioned, "How can a man so old know
what a deacon needs to hear? He's gotta be a servant of the Lord". All I could
say was, "He is".
President Faust was and still is an awesome man.He new how to teach the gospel
in a way that many would be able to understand and put it in our lives.May we
all remember the teaching and the kind of man he was.I send my love and
condolences to his family. God be with u till we meet again, my brother
Thank you for your life.
A gentle giant among men! I truly love President Faust, his example of
righteousness and his great teachings. Our lives have been blessed because of
him. I pray for all his family who miss him so much at this time. I'm grateful
for the testimony he shared so powerfully of life everlasting and the love our
Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ have for us. I will miss him in
conference but remember him always.
My bishop growing up was President Faust's body guard. We were blessed to hear
experiences our bishop had while in the presence of this great man. I feel like
I knew President Faust and was able to shake his hand on many occasions as he
visited our bishops family often. He will be missed. My heart goes out to his
family and friends. I know the entire church considered him a friend. I am
sure there is a great reunion in Heaven this morning. I hope I can live worthy
to shake his hand again someday...
Thank you, for your life Brother Faust.
I had the privilege of meeting President Faust at a funeral I performed in when
I was 10, and have always had a special place in my heart for him and the
messages he taught in the years since. I often reflect on his sweet, kind words
that day, and will miss his gentle messages in the years to come. Until we meet
again, I will miss him.
Pres. Faust is the first general authority with whom I had the opportunity to
shake hands. He came for a mission conference in St. Petersburg, Russia in
1993. His love and concern for the Saints and the missionaries was clearly
evident. The blessing he pronounced upon the people was unforgettable. He will

I echo all these comments of love and gratitude for Pres Faust! My love and
prayers also go out to his family. His gentle love and concern for all of us
has truly been felt by me. Many of his words have studk with me and I try to
change my life to be more in accordance with them.
He was a great and humble man. Not many people understand how beautiful and rare
that combination is. The life he led is a testimony of the Savior and President
Faust's great example of love will always touch my heart. May his family receive
great strength and faith at their time of great loss.
Lamentamos la perdida fisica, pero sus enseanzas quedarn viva en nuestros
recuerdos familiares y para toda la Iglesia. Nuevamente agradecemos a Jesucristo
por la maravillosa resurecci
I was honored to meet a dear sister who was Pres. Faust's daughter-in-law a few
years ago. I remember how she shared her love for her father. I always loved
to hear Pres. Faust speak and I loved his smile, but that day I began to love
and appreciate him for the awesome father he was. We are so very sorry for the
sadness and loss you must all be feeling and we thank you so much for allowing
this special man in your lives to be such a special man in all of our lives.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Pres. Faust in 1976 during a mission
conference in Porto Alegre, Brazil. I will treasure that moment forever. His
son, Robert Faust was my zone leader back then.Paulo Neves, Orem,
President Faust was a man who many loved and admired. He means a lot to the
Church and will always be remembered for His great work. I will truly miss his
talks in Conference. He was an inspiration to me!
What a Humble and Inspirational Man. A great loss to the world...
I loved President Faust. He was an inspiration to me. When teaching the Gospel
Doctrine lessons in my ward,I often take quotes from his wonderful
sermons. He was a true Disciple of Christ.My love to the Faust
family at this time.
President Faust was an outstanding man full of faith, love and testimony. We
will miss him dearly. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family and the
Church at this time. Thank you President Faust for the service and love you
extended to our family.
An inspiration to those who listened to him. May God comfort his family and may

oraciones para su familia y amigos.
We loved President Faust and I will miss his wonderful direction in your
We will miss the wonderful example of Faith, Courage, Hope and Charity portrayed
by President Faust. Our thoughts and Prayers go out to his Family.
President Faust to me emulated something all of us desire to have more
of-compassion on others, and in an unspoken way pleaded for members of the
church to live their religion, repent of our sins, and learn how to forgive and
serve others. that seems to be a theme he carried through his life. Thank You
for giving us President Faust. thats the impact he has on me.
Shocked is how I felt when I heard the news. I imagined the sorrow president
Hinckley must feel, loosing such a close friend, counselor, and confidant. I
felt pain for his family and how they will miss this gentle, loving man. And I
immediately thought of some of the most treasured messages I have heard from
president Faust in general conference: About a little lamb bleating in a
thunderstorm and a boy not wanting to get out of bed; about a grandmother
carrying her own wood for her fire and a man later feeling such shame for having
been so selfish; and about a son wanting a cheap toy but receiving an unwanted
ring instead. All seemed to carry the same thought: a humble recognition and
desire to be more sensitive to others. On my mission I learned from president
Faust one of the greatest lessons of life: "A sensitive conscience is the sign
of a health spirit." I have tried to live by those words. It has made such a
difference for me.
We loved President Faust and will miss his wonderful, gentle, kindly, and
intelligent messages to us. We extend our sympathy and prayers to his family at
their loss but know that his testimony and example will strengthen them at this
time and forever. We will always remember him.
what a comic!a great loss
I will always treasure his love for womanhood. He personified a righteous
father who emoted gentleness and testimony. His rock solid testimony always had
a calming influence on us. Our prayers to all the family as this great man
leaves you for but a little while.
I met President Faust when he was in our stake to reorganize the stake
presidency in June of 1978. He met with about 20 stake and ward leaders in the
course of that assignment. When he entered the room, every man there rose to
their feet. We all had the strongest feeling that we ought to be standing out
of respect for the spirit we felt. He assured us that the Lord had already
selected the new stake president. The responsibility he had was simply to
identify that person. With a smile he then said, "I have come to know that this
marvelous power (revelation) works...even through me." Only a few months later
he was called to serve in the Quorum of the Twelve.We will all miss
his example of sweet tenderness and his humble but powerful and sure testimony
of the Savior.
President Faust once told a story about him being a young boy sitting by the
fireplace, watching his grandmother as she kept going out into the cold getting
firewood for the family dinner? I think. He just sat and watched. As he told
the story, tears streamed down his face, as he remarked on how he was so selfish
that day, and he wanted so much to tell his grandmother he was sorry. I was so
touched by that story, and have tried to live by that principle ever since. He
was humble, meek, intelligent, and sincere. Also - he had red hair. =). I LOVE
you, President Faust. May Heavenly Father's choicest blessing's be with your
family at this time. Love, The DiGirolamo's in North Carolina
I was saddened to hear of Pres. Faust's passing this morning - Our family's

to lose such a valiant man for a time.
Thank you for sharing such a wonderful man with us all. His example of kindness
and gentleness will live forever in our hearts. I wonder how different this
world would be if we had more President Faust's in it. I am sure that our Savior

He was very inspiring.
I just wanted to say what a wonderful example of a great man and that he will be
missed My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

One of my favorite General Conference speakers.Will surely miss his voice.
You came to Goshen Scout Camp to be with your grandson, you shared your special
witness of the Savior with all, you showed your gift of discernment for the
special needs of the individual Scouts as we walk along the lake after dinner,
you praised our "Dutch Oven Chicken Dinner" and wrote about it in your journal
that 'it was the best you had had since your father cooked it for you', and you
talked with me in the car on the way home and I knew that I was speaking with an
Apostle of the Lord.
Thank you Ruth and family for sharing President Faust with us all.He has truly
lived his life in our service and in the service of Heavenly Father.
Our family and countless others will be forever grateful for his wonderful
example and influence. His words of counsel are manna in our lives. Our love
and prayers go to our beloved Prophet and especially his dear family.

My daughter who was a teenager at the time and I met President Faust. We were
at a restaurant and he just looked at her and spoke to her like he could see her
beautiful spirit. What a beautiful thing to do to see that in others.
One day our family was visiting Salt Lake City and encountered President Faust
as he came out of building. He immediately walked over to my sons, gave them the
most loving greeting and talked to each one briefly. He is a man who practiced
what he preached. We are going to miss him.
The world has lost a great man. May his soul rest in perfect peace. Even though
he has departed from this life, his words will always live on. Peace.
President Faust was a wonderful example of a man whose focus on the Gospel of

I remember brother Faust with much love and admiration. I worked at Holy Cross
Hospital in the rehab ward years ago and saw his love for a friend from his
military service who was not a member of the church. Brother Faust came every
week like clockwork to visit this friend who had had a stroke to encourage and
support him. I learned that love is unconditional for all men. I send my love
to all of the Faust family members. We love Brother Faust.
Our hearts go out to the Faust family at this time. What a blessing it was for
us to be able to feast upon the beautiful words of wisdom that President Faust
always had to offer. He was such a loving teacher to us all and we are grateful
to have had him as a leader of the church and as a true apostle of our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ.

prayers are with his beloved wife and family at at this time.

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!
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.

witness from someone who knew. Thank you, Pres. James E. Faust.
