President Hinckley was truly a great man. I had the opportunity to see him in Vancouver, B.C., some years ago and was truly impressed with the spirit he had about him. He truly lived what he taught and was a great spokesman for the church. I am sad to see him go.

President Hinckley was and forever will be an inspiration to all. For the 3 years I have been a member of the church his words have encouraged me and uplifted me. He will be greatly missed but celebrated in his homegoing. May we live striving to follow his teachings and continue to be his light that he set forth.

I feel like my wise Grandfather has passed suddenly... oh I wish he never had to. I will miss you Pres. Hinckley... so much. Thank you for promoting peace and tolerance to people of all faiths and backgrounds. You spoke with education, understanding, and your wonderful wit and humor. "Standing for Something" you did and I am inspired to do the same. God bless you my dear, dear prophet and may you rest.
