At last, his wish and prayers have been granted for the the long awaited reunion with his beloved Marjorie. What a giant among men. What a leader. What a mighty prophet of God. What an excellent example of what the touch of the Master's hand can do to an "ordinary" man with an extraordinary zeal to serve the Lord all the days of his life. Those of us who came of age in the 70's remember the huge shadow that President Kimball cast. I believe that even that has been eclipsed by a humble servant of the Lord who put his shoulder to the wheel and challenged the rest of us to raise the bar.

President Hinckley was the greatest! For most of our life, he has been the face of the church (especially when President Benson was ill or incapacitated). We will miss him, but are glad he is with his wife, his mother (who died when he was very young), and other relatives. Good luck President Monson. We love and pray for you too.

A truly great man. An inspiration not only to LDS women, children and priesthood holders, but also an inspiration to anyone of any faith striving to be virtuous and loving. He has finally recieved a well-earned rest with his equally amazing wife. The church and the world will forever be better off for his influence.

A wonderful life lived--thank you for all that you did for our family, and others. He will always be remembered as a great prophet with truly amazing accomplishments. We always liked his talks that he gave at conference, and he dedicated more temples than any other prophet. Amazing.


Lamentamos su partida, recordaremos su valioso ejemplo de amor hacia nosotros, y por cada enseanza que nos dejo, guardaremos en nuestros corazones cada enseanza y llevaremos con nosotros su valioso nombre como nuestro amado profeta.

Le amamos mucho presidente Hinckley.

We will surely miss our beloved prophet. We are so grateful for his love and dedication to the Lord's work. May he have a bit of rest and enjoy being with his sweetheart once again.
From Eric-I always wanted to meet President Hinckley, but I never got the chance. I also know he's a very good man and let him rest in peace. I hope he's still watching us all right now.
