A great loss to us, but I'm sure there is a great and wonderful union with him and his lovely wife.

Arbogast family

We will never forget all President Hinckley did for mankind. His encouragement to stretch ourselves so we could reach our potential; his kind words and touching stories of his life will always be near and dear to our hearts. We love him so much. Until we meet again...


What a great servant of the Lord. If I could be just half the man he was I would be very lucky! Lets honor him by following all the counsel he has given us over the years. My prayer is now with the Quorum of the 12 as they continue the work forward.
I can see him smiling with his sweetheart Marjorie at his side. That familiar grin that got to all of us! God be with you till we meet again!


How nice that he is finally at peace with his wife :)


Pres Hinckley was a great leader, great communicator, and a personable man. We'll miss him now, but like Pres Hinckley would probably say "get to work, there's a great work waiting for us to do"

The Leach Family

Our family will deeply miss President Hinkley. He's the only prophet my kids have really known. His counsel, talks, sense of humor and example have kept our family closer and striving for righteousness. Our condolences to the Hinkley family.

Phillips Family.....

President Hinckley will truly be missed. We are a better people for having known Him and his dear wife and Eternal Sweetheart, Marjorie. Thank You for your Love and Care and teaching us the way back to Our Father in Heaven. May each of us live lifes worthy of being in His presence again.
May each of you His Family find Comfort and Peace at this most difficult time.
With Friendship and Love....


President Hinckley was truly a man of God. How great it is now that he has returned to His presence! We will all miss him greatly for the service he has performed here on Earth.

I can hardly believe that the last general conference was the last time to see hime.


His work is done. He finished his race. He has won eternal life. Let us more forward as he "boldly nobly.. until the purposes of God are accomplished and the Great Jehovah will say the work is done." Let his life and mission be not in vain. Let us all stand a little higher and be a little better. I know he was and is one of Gods chosen Prophets to move us back to home. Let us ever stand true to the faith.

The Roberts Family

What an electrifying past 12 years for the church. This was one of the noble and great ones! Goodbye President Hinckley.


We love you, President Hinckley!!We mourn your loss, but rejoice that you are reunited with your eternal sweetheart, Sister Hinckley. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


President Hinckley influenced my life in ways no other has. For that, I am ever grateful. His inspired counsel and progressive vision have been so very instrumental to me as a young man trying to find his way in this world. Thank you, President Hinckley. Your vision lives on.

President Hinckley was a Great man and a Great leader of the church. His messages lead me to look more into the church and soon to become a member. I well miss him dearly. I have grew strong in the church with his messages. I have a empty hole inside right now but know he is in a better place with our father and is back with his wife.God bless the man. I pray now and await to see who the new president becomes and i will sustain them in the choose they recieve because it comes from our father above.

Higgins Family - NY

We will miss him. It will be hard to tell our little ones, they love him so much and got excited when he spoke at general conference. We are happy that he is now with his wife, but we will miss him so much.


I think Gordon B hicnkley was a great man. He will always be missed and he will never be forgoten. He was a man who did so much for the church of jesus christ of latter day saints but he never got rewarded and he was and will still be rewarded.

Scott Family

We are SO very sad to have him gone, but we know that he is in a better place.
