We send our love to Pres. Hinckley's family in their sorrow. We extend our love also to his brethren in the Leadership of the Resotred Gospel. Oh! may we follow his incomparable example!


Think of all the families who have been sealed in the temple due to the huge expansion of temples, throughout the world, under President Hinkley's service. This will be his great legacy.

This marks the end of an era. Pres. Hinckley has moved the church forward more than any other modern prophet since Joseph Smith. We love you so much and will miss you. May you enjoy your reunion with your sweet wife. Your example of humility and love will never be forgotten.


A sad day for us, but think of the celebrations on the other side. Not only his wife and family but so many others that have passed on who love this Prophet. They must be overjoyed to have such a great servant of the Lord in their presence.


President Hinkley an amazing man with such great capacities. A Prophet for our day. He truely had a window into my my soul and I will be forever greatful for his life.... an inspiration to all.


He was loved by our family and is already missed! I met him almost 30 years ago and still remember the feeling I had when he talked to me. A very special man indeed!

President Hinkley's hard work ethic, skill in the media, sense of humor,testimony and prophetic inspiration are his legacy to the world! How blessed we are to have had him this long.
Our Prophet is dead, long live the Prophet!
The gospel is true and prophecy continues.
As in geese flying in formation, the tired leader drops back and a new leader braves the wind. So it is in the Church. We look forward to our new vibrant leader.

Thank you President Hinckley, for your service and example I will always remember you.


We love President Hinckley up here in British Columbia, Canada. We're grateful he came here for temple site selection last year.
