Thank you Pres. Hinckley. We will miss you.


Isn't it great that we believe in eternal families and eternal life ... what a wonderful reunion he is having with his wife and family right now. What a great man and Great Prophet of God. We will miss him but we have all been blessed by his influence.

We thank thee O' God for a Prophet!
President Hinckley changed our lives forever.


He was my favorite prophet and he was the prophet for at least 13 years. It felt sudden and even shocking somewhat when the news came through tonight. What an inspiration to so many people. 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.


We will always remember you President Hinckley. Your unselfish dedication and persistance to achomplishing the work of God is much appreciated by those in and out of the church. "We thank thee, Oh God, for a Prophet!"


We will always remember his energy and his love for life. Oh that we could live as he lived.

Faith in every Footstep! What a wonderful prophet, seer and revelator. He has touched many lives and encouraged us all to greater faith as we raise the bar. I will miss you! Love and respects to your dear family. Thank you for sharing him with us for all of these years....


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 your teaching and genuine love will last forever in my mind. I love your teachings, and even more I delighted to hear your talks. We will miss you very much. May the Lord bless you forever and ever my beloved and forever brother in Christ.


I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but all them also that love his appearing. (2 Tim. 4:7-8)

This dear man will be greatly missed by all of us that came to know him and love him as he led our church to great heights over the past 12 years.

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 personally feel like I've lost a great friend, and I will miss his humor, his demeanor, and his great love that he demonstrated during his many talks he delivered to us in general conference.

What a great man we lost today. May we honor him by emulating his wonderful qualities. God bless him for all that he did.

Our love, aloha, prayers and condolences to the Hinckley family. Aloha 'oe, until we meet again!!


Thank you, President Hinckley, for your love and service, for your humor and devotion. Thank you so much for being willing to be separated from your sweetheart so that you could continue to serve us. Thank you for being so wonderful and so human, so loving and kind. The world mourns your passing while the heavens rejoice your arrival!
