we loved the prophet so much, and we know that he is in a better place now, next to his wife. we will remember him as a good man and a great prophet of God...


That must have been some reunion--his wife Marjorie and the Savior. I'm sure he heard the words "Well done, thou good and faithful servant".

He was truly a man of God. What an example of love and service, he lives in our hearts. What a wonderful thing the reunion of him and the women of his dreams must have been. Thank you President Hinckley. We love you and will miss you until we see you again.


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.

The world is lessened by his passing, his example will always be before us. He is loved by us and will be sorely missed, but he has gone to be with his wife as it should be.

The Long Family

As recent converts President Hinkley was an inspiration and a deciding factor in our conversion to the Gospel. His dedication to the family was like a beacon to family that was lost and oour lives have changed so significantly in the two years we have been actively participating in developing a family that will last for all eternity. We will miss him deeply and share in the joy of eternity that his family has to look forward to.

We will always be greatful for this wonderful man, a prophet of God. We will miss him but we are also happy that he is with his beloved companion. "Well done thou good and faithful servant!"

Bynum Family/California

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.

The Bingham Family/AZ

What a great life .... and now he's with his beloved wife and parents. We will miss him ... but he is having a joyous reunion!!!


Thank you President Hinckley for your service. I always appreciated your sense of humor during General Conferences. You will be greatly missed.

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!


Way to be! Thanks for Standing for Something.
