He is a man who will be greatly missed and who has touched many lives. He has been the prophet since I was 8 years old and I will mourn his loss. I can't imagine anyone taking his place, but I am glad that he is once again reunited with his beloved wife.


One of thebest prophets of our age. He almost made it to 100. he's in a better place with his heavenly father and his wife.

Trully, a leader who did what God wanted him to do. We all loved you President Hinkley!! And We know he loved us too.


I love President Hinkley for all that he has done for me and my family. I will never forget the most magnificent things you have done. I will be forever happy for him now that he and his wife are now together again. May the temple prophet, who has blessed our lives with the temple ordanices we need to see our Heavenly Father again, rest in peace. What a great man who lead us through this evil times.... I love him so much. You will live on in our hearts and minds forever. THANK YOU!!!!

How sad for the living....how happy for those waiting on the other side. Pres. Hinckley, yes, truly a GREAT man. One that will be missed. Our prayers to his family. Also, our prayers to Pres. Monson as the mantle is passed to him. What an awesome responsibility it must be to be the Lord's mouth piece (especially in this day and age!).


The Nelson Family:
What a great man! I bet he is so happy to be with his loving wife. He left a great legacy. He was an honorable who set a great example. I am glad to have been part of his ministry.

The Abel Family

To our dearest prophet President Hinckley, Our hearts are heavy. We are left in this cold winter without you, and we weep for ourselves that we must go on without you. We know that you are standing side by side with Marjorie, all of the prophets that have gone before, and our Savior Jesus Christ. May we always live as faithfully as you have.

We send condolences to his family in this difficult time.

We loved President Hinckley so much. He changed our lives and brought us closer to Christ. Everything he ever had to say, we took very seriously. He was a man of God, and I appreciate his marvelous work in serving in our church...

President Hinkley has left a legacy and a message that will carry on for many generations. He truely was an example for all to follow. What a wonderful life he led. He will be sorely missed.


I just found out about twenty minutes ago. I am sad to hear that he has passed away but I know how much he missed his wife. He will be greatly missed by all of us. I remember him talking about his age at the last general conference. He has always had so much energy to serve the church.

You truly have made a huge impact to us and the world around us as long as we can remember, you have the most influential where the rest of the world looks so dark, you're our beacon. Carry on, we will!


Millions of members, myself incuded, grew spiritually with President Hinckley being our only prophet we've known.
