Thank you President Hinckley for many years of service, and for your kind words and humor. You gave hope to all of us. God rest your blessed soul.

President Hinckley was a great man and a great prophet. He was loved very much and will be sorely missed by many people around the world. THANK YOU for everything! =)

President Hinckley, the most eloquent and innovative leader I've ever known in my lifetime. I love him, I love his beautiful words of testimony and admontion. 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. I Thank Heavenly Father for calling him as our 15th Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and giving us 97 amazing, inspiring, years with President Gordon B. Hinckley.

To his family... peace be with you all. Your father, grandfather, etc. was a great leader in bringing us and many more to our Lord and Savior. He will be missed. We're happy to think he's with your Mom again.

President Hickley was a great man who served Heavenly Father and carried out His plan. He was very instrumental in all the things the church has today and he will be truly missed. He is the only prophet that I have known, having been baptized as a convert in 1996. I am saddened deeply by his passing, but rejoice in the homecoming that he is now experiencing and the reunion he is having with his beloved wife, Marjorie. I am comforted that I will see him again. I am very excited for the new presidency to follow and anxious for the things that Heavenly Father has in store for us.

President Hinckley is such an amazing man and will be missed! Thank you for you devotion to the church and amazing testimony and example. You have inspired many.


He will be missed, but he has done such great things, and he needed to be with his wife. Im so grateful for all he has done, because of President Hinckley I am now able to travel to manhattan to go to the temple. It is amazing having one that close to me. God Bless the Hinckley family.

Although President will surely be missed, we can not do anything but rejoice for him and his dear companion of so many years, that they are now reunited and being able to carry on their eternal love that kept them such a wonderful example of how a couple should love and treat each other. Thank you for providing us with that example. The angels are singing on your behalf.

You've been a great example to me and a great prophet. I'm happy that you've moved on in your eternal progression and that you are with Marjorie again. Thank you for teaching me the things I need to know to return to my Father in Heaven.

I don't feel sad inside because I know that he is with his precious wife now. What a great reunion that will be. The Eternal Plan of Happiness is just that. he will be missed so much, but what a wonderful life you have led. What a great example you have been to the world. May "God be with you till we meet again."

He was the only prophet I can remember growing up. It was so sad to see him leave us but I am glad that he will get to see his wife again.
