From Alberta Canada... we add our love to the Hinckley family. The phone calls from all our married children expressing their love for President Hinckley has been so heartwarming. Our beloved prophet finally made it 'home' to be with his sweetheart Marjorie, whom he missed beyond words. What a joyous reunion they must be having! He will be in our hearts forever. What a valiant example Pres. Hinckley was to us. Our prayers are now also with the Monson family. With gratitude we are blessed to know the Church has such valiant apostles to carry on.

We thank the, O God, for this GREAT prophet! What a wonderful reunion he must have had with his beloved Marjorie and "that God who gave 'him' life," Alma 40:11.

God bless President Thomas S. Monson, as he moves into his new role and responsibility.


I like how anonymous put it, "One of the greatest Prophets in history..." I totally agree - ALL history. He will be greatly missed. I am glad and blessed to have lived during his time of Prophetic Leadership. I am so grateful for the example he set, the testimonies he bore, the leadership he gave, and for the special blessing he, Pesident Benson, and President Monson gave to our family on October 27, 1987, which blesses us eternally. We will miss this great Prophet to the world. We will love him forever. Until we meet again...

The Wright Family

We love you so and we will miss you, our dear Prophet. Your example of faithful service has truly been an inspiration for me and the world.

The Miller Family

President Hinckley has left a wonderful legacy of energetic leadership. We will dearly miss our beloved Prophet. God bless his family in their time of sorrow. The world mourns with you.


What a great man. If the world only knew what he did for the world they would also feel this passing. I love the man, and I love what he did for the world. Praise to the man.

We loved Presdient Hinckley and all the wonderful things he has done for the church. He will be sorely missed. But how happy he must be now that he is back with his loving wife Marjorie Hinckley. May his family know of the love the world had for their dad. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

We are so grateful for President Hinckley's life and example. We love him and will miss him.


President Hinckley was truly an inspired man. I have as long as I can remember loved him and felt such a spirit about him. This day is a happy day for him and his wife, but it is a truly sad day for me. For his family, my prayers are with you and to President Hinckley, I love you and look forward to the day that I shall see you again.

Beloved Prophet, We will all miss you and continue to live in the light of your counsel. I know you have touched my life and I have benefited from the life and example you have set. I am ever grateful to you. May the Lord bless you and your family at this saddest moment. We share the joy of your life and the sadness of parting. Love from me and my family.

Our prayers and love are with the Family, and President Hinckley will be missed.A Great Man!!!!


I guess he can ask Moses what it was like to part the Red Sea, Daniel what it was like to have the lions mouths closed, Joseph, Alma, Alma the Younger, The Brother of Jared, Adam and Eve, so many questions so many people that he will sit and talk to now. i have a few words, found on page 19 "We thank thee oh God for a prophet to guide us in these latter days." he will be missed.

Helen Remnet

We will all miss you, but I'll bet your sweet wife was glad to see you come through the veil. I have lost a companion, and know the lonliness you spoke of often.
