He was such a gentle soul yet a profoundly powerful leader. His powerful influence was felt throughout the Church and the world. He has done so much good in both 'arenas'. Rest in peace, President Hinckley. You are so loved here but so much more loved in the glorious place you are now privileged to occupy along with your beloved wife. Love and condolences to the Hinckley family he left behind. I will miss him as will millions of Church members who tenderly revered him as our Dear Prophet. Goodbye Dear President Hinckley. We love you.


My seven year old said it best "I loved him so much. It's like my grandpa died."

Even though we never met him, words cannot express what he has meant to us.

Thank You President Hinckley.

We love You..

President Hinckley was an inspiration to so many and set such a fine example for us all. Our condolences to his family.


So shocking to hear of his passing...but happy for him that he is now with his beloved wife Marjorie. He will always be in our hearts as a beloved Prophet and friend to all.

pres.hinckley was a very great example to us! he is a man of honor & very dedicated to d church! let us continue to follow his examoles & his teachings!god bless his family. .


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.


What a wonderful man. He leaves a legacy that touch many lives. We love him and happy because he will meet his beloved Marjorie.

The world all over morns both the loss of a great prophet as well as a great man!! My condolences to the Hinkley family, and prayers to all of us that we can continue to carry on the things that President Hinkley strived to teach us all. Things that he lived and emulated so very well...

We will miss you. Your sense of humor and quite ways were very inspirational.

President Hinckley was one of the greatest Prophets who lived to help us all. Our Savior Jesus Christ will have surely accepted him with open arms, "Well done thou good and faithful servant." We will miss him.

I thank Father in Heaven for the life and example of President Hinckley. He is like a dearly loved member of my family. I will miss him but I will see him again on the other side. His reunion with his beloved Marjorie and him Mom and Dad must be great! I hope he get to have a short vacation before he has to start to work again.
