    I am profoundly moved to hear this news. Gordon B. Hinckley was one of the greatest public figures in my life, and had a deep impact on me as I grew up in the church. His teachings and example always encouraged me to do my very best and helped me to be optimistic in the face of difficulties. His words and leadership during the 9/11 tragedy had a profound impact on me. I am sad to hear of the passing of this wonderful man of God, but at the same time it gives me great joy to know that he can finally be reunited with his wife, whom he missed so much during the last years of his life. Godspeed, brother.

    Godspeed to one of the great leaders of the modern era. When he assumed the presidency at an already advanced age, I assumed his would be a caretaker presidency. I am very grateful to have been wrong. He was as warm as he was insightful and had a wonderful sense of humor. He taught many great lessons, but perhaps the one I remember most was one taught about him by Sister Hinckley. They came to Maine to speak to the NH and Maine stakes and she related how much he had grown since assuming the presidency. I have always taken comfort in the fact that a man with his long resume and already significant spiritual stature could and would learn and change. My solaces in this are twofold. First, that we had him at all. Second, that he is back with his beloved Marjorie. My condolences to his family. Thank you all for loaning him to us these many years. May God bless you all.

I would have loved to shake his hand just once...

    President Hinckley is the only prophet I have ever known. I joined the church in 2000. I got to be in the same room with him at the dedication of the Lubbock, TX temple. I felt his spirit and have no doubt he is/was a true prophet of God. This is both sad and happy. At least now he is with his sweet bride. He will be greatly missed. I loved him so much!!!

I love you so much. I'm glad you're with your wife again, though. As I write this, tears roll down my face as I think of how you'll never speak in another general conference again. I will miss that. but your talks to the youth will always be with me throughout my life.
    I love and miss you

    When we told our six-year old son that President Hinckley had died, he asked us why we didn't pray earlier so he wouldn't die. He told us that he was very sad that President Hinckley had died. We explained to him that President Hinckley died of old age and that the prophet was now with his wife and others whom he loved, just not here on with us. This helped ease his sadness. And it helped also to relieve the sadness, yet bring in comfort to all of the children in our family.

His smiles warmed our hearts while his words brought us comfort. He makes me want to be a better person while I can and to make better decisions in my life. It also helps me realize how close Heavenly Father is to us and that he wants us to be happy. I will dearly miss him and hope to see his smile again someday. I know that my Redeemer lives and loves each of us. I thank you for the bottom of my heart, my dearest President Hinckley.

    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.

"I leave with you my testimony of the truth of these things, and I invoke the blessings of heaven upon you. May the windows of heaven be opened and blessings showered upon you as the Lord has promised. Never forget that this was His promise and that He has the power and the capacity to see that it is fulfilled.

    He was such a great man and we loved him so much.
    He was truly a latter-day Saint in the highest degree. He was our prophet, our example and our friend. May the Hinckley family be comforted at this difficult time. Thank you President Hinckley
    for being such a great example of the principles and teachings of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Our dear Pres. Hinkley...we will miss you so. He was truly a Man of God. I thought he would live to 100 for sure, but today's news puts that wish to rest. He led with compassion, understanding, and love. He brought us to greater heights....STAND A LITTLE TALLER, etc. I cherish all the wonderful things he taught our family as our girls grew up with him as our prophet.

    To his family, our loving wishes of comfort from above. Your know what a privilege it is to have your eternal connection with one so great as he. Such a blessing, to you and to the world.

    It is raining here in California right now...I say the heavens are crying over the loss of one so great. The world will MISS Pres. Hinkley, and so will we! His sweet sense of humor was uniquely HIM. There was no better example of a loving and devoted husband and father, than him.

    "Thanks for your undying leadership and direction through the years! We love you, Pres. Hinkley!!!!"

    When I heard the news I cried. My husband and I sang the hymn "We thank Thee O God for a Prophet". I am so grateful to have listened to his counsel. I love him so dearly- we will miss him. He is a man of virtue and service. He lived his life to serve.

    It was with great sorrow & shock to hear of the death of our beloved prophet, President Hinkley. That sorrow is only diminished by knowing of his happiness at the long anticipated reunion with his dear wife Majorie and to be greeted by the Savior himself. If we could all be as faithful and diligent with our given time upon the earth. What an outstanding example of Christlike service and compassion. The loss will be felt, but the legacy will continue on. Thank you President Hinckley we love and miss you.

    We have been so...blessed with the years of service by President Gordon B. Hinckley. When I was a teenager we only had 16 temples throughout the world. Since President Hinckley starting serving in the First Presidency there have been an explosion of Temples built and dedicated. That is a legacy that I will always associate with him. He is truly a Prophet of God! This world is simply a better place because of his service to the Lord. He never gave up, he couldnt give up! I am thankful for the knowledge that we have. I know that he is with those of whom have passed before. I know that he was welcomed as a man of faith and love. He will never be forgotten! His love for all mankind continues to live in all of us who seek to serve with diligence and love. He would want us to continue to serve and to love one another as he as loved us!

    President Hinckley once mused that he and Sister Hinckley were in reasonably good health; however, they no longer bought green bananas. Long life is a gift but usefulness to such a degree over such a long life is a rare legacy for the ages. What a wonderful example of what a life can be, if we all are but willing to do what is right and let the consequence follow each and every day.

    President Hinckley changed me in an unmeasureable way. I am a convert and inactive member of the church and even with that said I can tell you that there wasn't a general confrence where I didn't feel wholy and completely like the message from him wasnt meant directly to me and the other members of the church. I never met the prophet but I can tell you that I felt like I knew him. I dont always know what I believe and often question my faith but I know that President Hinckley was the prophet of this earth, that he recieved messages from our Heavenly Father and that his words were true and they will continue to enrich our lives. I love reading his books, watching his talks and hearing his message. I am so happy about where he is going and that his work will continue. May this family, the family of the members of the church be comforted and always hold his message in our hearts. He will be ever missed.

He touched so many lives and if I could be 25% of what that man has become then I will have lived a very good life. I loved how personable he was to people. He was funny with a quick wit yet he was so strong and firm on his convictions. He will never be forgotten and his faith and testimony will help others move forward to live better.

    Aaron Copland's fanfare for the common man could not be more appropriate for a great loss today. Today the world lost a great man whose work was to please the Lord and serve his fellow man. If we could have a thousand presidents who serve america as much as he served his God, his family, and his people our country would be a far greater place. He was a man shall surely be missed amongst many nations. He left his mark upon the hearts of millions of people. Why?...to lift souls to higher plains. He was kind, yet direct. He was gentle, yet stern. He preached, yet followed. He spoke, and our hearts burned within us. No man could speak ill of Gordon B. Hinkley and honestly say that they know him. I heard his voice, and knew he was a prophet of God. His memory shall forever be with my family. Today, my family shall honor him. We will mourn for the earthly loss of a mighty son of God.

    President Hinckley leaves behind a legacy of unprecedented growth and temple building that has provided a foundation for our future as a church and people. Although we feel sorrow for our great loss, we must also be willing to rejoice in knowing that President and Sister Hinckley are now reunited after faithfully keeping their second estate, and will most likely be given important responsibilites to further the work of God where they dwell in the spirit world at this time.

I love and appreciate his powerful declaration of Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ, Our Heavenly Father, and the Holy Ghost. I love his positive attitude. I thank him for all he has done for The Lord's true church in moving it forward. I thank him for his work in increasing Temples on the earth and for his gift of inspiring Latter-Day Saints all over the world to live better lives, to stand a little taller, be a little kinder, strive a little more to be better Saints.
    My love and prayers go out to his family at this time as they struggle with their brief earthly parting with their beloved dad, etc. What a wonderful reunion he is having with his sweetheart, parents, siblings, family, associates, and especially his dearest friend, our precious Saviour.

    As a Young Women leader, I know first hand the great love President Hinckley had for our youth. He, probably more so then any other before him, literally tore down walls between The Church and the rest of the world. By doing so he has softened many hearts and opened many minds. I feel so lucky to have received so many blessings by following our sweet prophet. Thank you so much for your loving service.

    Gordon B. Hinckley was a great man who lived his life as he believed, with faith and strength. He built bridges of understanding between his beloved Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and other Christian faiths. He was kind, he was positive, he was helpful, he was friendly, he was brave. He was a great man of God who loved his Savior Jesus Christ and tried to bring the rest of us into a similar position. He is a man who stood for something. He will be missed here, but he will be welcomed there. If the rest of us could do as well we would be very happy.

    In the late 60's, a few years after I became a member at age 17, I was able to shake hands with Apostle Gordon B. Hinckley after a Stake Conference in Santa Barbara, California. I immediately sensed a special spirit. He was and always will be a special person. He was and will continue to be the best example of loving and respecting others, regardless of their official religious affiliation.

He has called the world to repentance, as have all prophets before him. He has shared his personal testimony of the restored Gospel with the entire world, but most importantly his complete and sure knowledge of who the Savior, Jesus Christ is... That He died for all of mankind, and through Him, all mankind may be saved...That He lives! and That He will return again to this earth one day. President Hinkley was a great teacher while on the earth, and he will continue to be a great teacher beyond this life. He knows Truth, and he has taught the Truth to the world.

What a precious man, and faithful servant of the Lord the world has lost. The school children here are wearing their church clothes to school tomorrow in horor of him. We all love him so. We are sad in Arizona. Rest in Peace Dearest President Hinckley.

    What an amazing prophet we had for so many years. We have been so blessed. He will be missed by many and loved. I know that he was such a true prophet and that he lived such a great life and dedicated so much of it to this church. I'm sad he is gone, but am so happy for him and what he is doing right now.

    President Hinckley was short in statue tall in spirit, testimony, integrity and optimism. We shall miss him. His presence always encouraged and strenthened those who were privileged to be in his midst. The Church has lost a stalwart leader; the world has lost a wonderful role model. He may be lost from our view for now, but he will never be lost from our hearts. His example of goodness and hard work will live on in others because he made them better and gave them purpose and love. He lived a life so nearly Christ-like that many lives were touched and changed for the better. Though "That signs 30 for his mortal existance"; it is not the last time we shall see and follow his ways.
    We are happy for you, Pres. Hinckley, for you once again reunited with your beloved companion of so many years. Thank you for so much to so many for so long.

His faithfulness and love for the Savior, youthful energy and sense of humor was truly an inspiration to me.

    President Hinckley is an amazing man. He was the Lord's prophet through an incredible period of growth in the church. His life is a legacy and testament of his commitment to the Lord, Jesus Christ. We are all stronger members of the church as a result of his love, service and sacrifice in carrying out all that the Lord called him to do. We will miss his presence, but we are gratified in the knowledge that he has returned to our Heavenly Father and is with his beloved Marjorie. We also have a firm testimony that we will see him again. May we emulate his life of love and service in our own lives to our fellowman both member and non-member alike. We love you and will miss you, but we realize that this is but a brief parting. Got bless you President Hinckley. Our love and prayers are with you and your family.

    When we pass on people will say that they lived in the time of Moses or the time of Captain Moroni and ask you when you lived and when you say in the time of Pres. Hinckley people will bow to your presence so imagine what rejoice is going on there.

    As a non-member, by mere chance, I had the opportunity to hear the great prophet speak once. The night of the Christmas (2007) broadcast, his words touched my heart, and I made the decision that night to join the church and be baptized. And I was on December 29th, just less than a month ago. President Hinckley saved my life and he doesn't even know it. I am so sad he is gone, but I know I am so blessed to have been able to witness him speak just once. My condolences go out to his family and I rejoice for his reunion with his loving wife. He has been an inspiration to me and will continue to be. He will be missed. His message will continue to live on through us all. I am living proof that this man is a true prophet of God, the Spirit spoke through him, and right to my heart. In a room full of hundreds and him on a TV monitor... it was just us, just me and the spirit, and I was saved! Go in peace President Hinckley. You are loved!

    I am saddened to hear of the passing of Our Beloved Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley.
    I loved him deeply and will miss him very much. I know that he is now with his Beloved wife Marjorie; which helps to sooth the sorrow of his passing.
    He loved individuals of all faiths and has been such a great example for all of us to follow.
    Each time he would enter a room you could feel of His Strentgh and Power and Authority. You knew of His Love for The Lord and His Testimony of the Truthfullness of the Gospel.
    I love Him so very much and will truly miss Him.
    May all the members of your family be comforted as you mourn the loss of your Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather.
    May you feel an outpouring of the Spirit of The Lord during this time. May you know The Prophets Example of Righteousness will always be an example for all of us to follow. I Love Him and Always Will.
    May The Lord Be With You.

I admired and loved this remarkable man who led this church for so long with a sense of humor and quiet dedication and dignity, the lives of all he touch may never be fully known but I am one whose life he touched and who was greatly blessed by his words and his example. I shall ever tresure his memory and his ministry and look forward to the day to meet this giant of a man once again.

    As a Prophet, as well as a man, he is and will always be a wonderful example of how our life should be. We remember how he always exemplified love, concern for all mankind and charity. Will remember his wonderful words that made us smile, laugh and ponder a better way of life. President Hinkley, You will be missed, but always remembered! Lot's of love and comfort to the Hinkley Family, and to all the members of the Church and the world let's follow his words, actions and honor his work and his life...!

    Like many other men, I sat in General Conference Priesthood meeting and listened to the wise, inspired counsel of Church leaders, including President Hinckley. After one such event, I turned to shake hands with an acquaintance who, upon reflecting on the conference simply said of President Hinckley, "That man speaks to my soul." I think I will longer remember those words, which stirred my own soul, for they rang true to me as well.

    So I knew this day would eventually come, but my heart is saddened as I contemplate the reality of it all. My testimony grew perhaps the most under President Hinckley's tutelage. I was at Ricks when he was sustained as the prophet and will always remember the way I felt when he spoke. Since I heard him speak last, it was clear that if he suffered, it apparently was not long. He is now with his beloved wife again to start off a new stage in our immortal journey.

    If any of his family are reading this, I would like to thank you personally for your sacrifice of time with your father, grandfather, etc. You have given much so that the Lord's work can move forward. I pray that the Holy Ghost will comfort you and lift you up in your hour of grief.

    Now The Leader Of The Band Has Died. The word has come to Hawaii and to my house of the Passing of President Hinckley. He lived a Great Life and was a Great Example about how to live. Often in the last 20 years I have followed that example. I have listened to his talks and taken his advice. I am a much better person having done so. I saw him when he came to BYUH a few years ago. I truly felt the Spirit and the Love. When he came to Hawaii the last time with Sister Hinckley, he asked us to sing Aloha Oi (Hawaiian Fair Well song), and of course we did. I find little sadness at his passing, only a peace and a sure knowledge that Sister Hinckley will be oh so happy to see him, the wait not having been very long at all. I know he missed her. He told us he did. I know he was in the Upper Room and part of Declaration II. In part because he was there I am here. His TALK on The Family "A PROCLAMATION TO THE WORLD" hangs on my wall, along with his Picture

This Church will not be different without him, it will be better for having had his leadership and example. Welcome home, dear prophet, and bless you forever!

    While we are sad because we have lost a great leader, I am happy that he is now with his beloved companion. When I saw President and Sister Hinkley at an area conference in California in the late 90's, I thought that they represented the perfect couple. His example of love of wife and family made his condemnation of spouse and child abuse all the more potent. The Proclamation on the Family holds high the standard for a world that seeks to promote everything but the traditional family.
    May our great prophet enjoy his rest in the Lord.

Oh what a glorious reunion is happening with Sister Hinckley and her devoted husband Gordon. The Keys are all in the hands of the Quorum of the Twelve now and judiciously through divine inspiration the mantle we preceed to man Heavenly Father sees fit as being his mouthpeace like President Hinckley once was!

    You have and will continue to be an inspiration to me and many people in the world. You will be sadly missed. My love and condolences to his family, the First Presidency and all those who worked closely with him. Though I live in Australia, I know how much you loved the members and we loved you as much.
    In a world of chaos, I am grateful for your wonderful example, your love, and your dedication in the Lord's work.
    I can say that for me and members across the world, WE THANK THEE OH GOD FOR A PROPHET, for Gordon B. Hinckley. Truly a man of God.

    We were blessed to have had him as Prophet of God's Church. He enriched our lives and taught us by example to do better. We will miss him, but we are glad that he has been reunited with his wife.

    We love you President Hinckley!

    How could some others in the world look at this sweet, vibrant man and church leader, and think that President Hinckley represents a cult, or a relegion not based in Christ and service. He was and will remain a giant of a man with a legacy forged in longevity and a flawless life of ministering to the whole world. My wife and I were touched deeply by him and became active and useful again after 20 + years of selfish, rowdy living away from the church. He and Elder Maxwell drew us back into the fold. We will donate to the Perpetual Education Fund for the very first time in President Hinckley's name instead of flowers. The world has lost a great man, husband, father, grandfather and prophet. Our grief is overwhelming. We wish the gift of the comforter to be with his family, and all who feel loss and sadness.

    President Gordon B. Hinckley has been the prophet of my youth. I was surprised by his passing but have reflected on many of the things I've learned from him. I remember the day he was sustained. It was nearly thirteen years ago, and I was only eleven years old. My heart is filled with happiness thinking about what a man he is! He truly was a prophet and spoke the words of the Lord. I'll pray lots for his family and the apostles!

    Your father and grandfather and everything he was to you was a great leader. His wife was a wonderful, intelligent woman. We're descendants of the pioneers in a unique valley as well. President Hinckley stood for everything pure and good and right and wise. He was understanding and compassionate and Marjory was a splendid lady. Certainly they are happy beyond measure and certainly their spirits call to ours. Adulation is a word I learned from President Hinckley in describing a more pure love for Marjory and I say to anyone absent of adulation that Gordon B. Hinckley was your friend whether you knew it or not - He love you because he loved all of God's children and his life means something to you whether you know it or not. There is a God in the universe who knows all things and he knows you and he knows him. His life is such an example of hard work and dedication and moving 'forward with faith' in the construction of temples and so many other great works. We love you and send our best to you and your family. - A Salt Lake City Resident.

    This man, chosen of the Lord, inspired millions of people for good and brought so many to Christ. Undoubtedly, he is enjoying a sweet reunion with his dear Marjorie and many other family members and leaders. The Lord, in a way that I cannot totally explain, gave him the gift of sharing his love in a manner in which each individual felt as if they intimately knew him personally. I look forward to the day when I can shake his hand and thank him personally for teaching me about our Savior Jesus Christ.

    To me and many of my generation, President Hinckley was "our prophet" -- loved, honored, and revered much like Brother Joseph was to those of his day. How we will miss him. Let us all commit to living as he taught us: to always strive to be better and to be a little kinder to everyone, regardless of religion or circumstance. That would truly honor his memory.

I feel such love and gratitude for his influence in my life. He will be greatly missed, but I am so thankful to know that he is again reunited with loved ones that have passed on before him. He has been a worthy instrument in the hands of God, who's life has touched others worldwide. I am so grateful for him and want to be a better person because of him. I have come to know the love that Jesus Christ has for me, because of the love I have felt for and from President Hinckley. I will be forever grateful for his influence in my life.

    It brings tears to my eyes to think that we will not hear his faith-promoting voice, see his ever-present smile, or listen to his dry wit in General Conference. I've hoped that he could continue to lead the church, but know that God has chosen another to continue to carry the mantle of prophet upon the earth. May he now enjoy a season of rest with his wonderful wife.

What a sad thing that he is gone. But what a wonderful thing to be able to be with his wife Marjorie. Can you imagine the kind of reception he received on the other side of the veil? This man did so much not just for our church but for the world! He was so loving and kind. He truly cared about everyone he met. He loved serving everyone! And by doing so he was serving our Lord. I love him so much and hope I can someday be the example he was to the world.

    He will be missed. What a great guy he was! So vibrant and positive about our future. He said a lot about what a great future we have coming to us and not to be so gloomy about it. That impressed me the most and I tell people to cheer up and look forward to a good future. After all, it is our choice how we want our future to be and his positiveness showed us that it is definitely possible. I loved his speeches. I never had one speech come that I didn't like. I am going to miss seeing him and seeing his cane that he walked with and the smile he always had for everyone. What a man! And I'm sure he's very happy being back with his wife again and busy working doing what they needed him there to do. The world is a better place in many ways because of President Gordon Hinckley. He was loved by many.

    President Hinckley personally touched my life with great impact. I read his bio and gleaned the courage to move forward in Faith, no matter what. He also reminded us with the 9 "Bs", and to Stand A little Taller and Stand for Something. He was so well read and knew so much that he could speak to anyone from a common everyday person, to celebrity and presidents, kings and princess'. He was a Man for All Seasons, and leaves a legacy of so much. I knew when the Perpetual Education Fund was announced I would be a part of it, I am thankful to have served a mini-mission with the young Saints in Monterrey Mexico. The leadership that may come as a result of this world wide program will raise up many leaders of countries for future generations. I am sure he has already been told, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter into my rest." and reported to the Savior of his accomplishments with deep humility-- so characteristic of Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley. I will miss your influence and reminders, our prophet dear. Lindon, UT
