Your life on earth has truly shown forth the wonderful workings of our Lord. Your works have been never ceasing. They are works of righteousness. The fruits from your labors reach into the heavens. You brought laughter to conferences like I have never heard before. I truly looked forward to hear your voice once more. May we all live by your counsel and example.

He served long and faithfully. He has left a legacy of service and dedication, not only to his family but to all the members and non-members. I shook his hand once in 1976 or 1977 (it was on my mission in Bolivia) and was struck by his kind and loving eyes.

What an incredible individual and wonderful prophet; one to follow and emulate. God bless his family.

I have known the Prophets since Heber J. Grant but I have known President Hinckley best and feel closest to him. I will miss him very much.


President Hinckley is an amazing man. He was the Lord's prophet through an incredible period of growth in the church. His life is a legacy and testament of his commitment to the Lord, Jesus Christ. We are all stronger members of the church as a result of his love, service and sacrifice in carrying out all that the Lord called him to do. We will miss his presence, but we are gratified in the knowledge that he has returned to our Heavenly Father and is with his beloved Marjorie. We also have a firm testimony that we will see him again. May we emulate his life of love and service in our own lives to our fellowman both member and non-member alike. We love you and will miss you, but we realize that this is but a brief parting. Got bless you President Hinckley. Our love and prayers are with you and your family. Thank you for your life and example. May we so emulate your example in our own lives and carry on this great work where you've left off.


He was an incredible man. He was a inspiration to us all. I am a Lone Peak High School Student. We are all dressing up to show respect to this amazing man. The guys are wearing there white shirts and ties and the women are wearing there dresses and skirts. We want to remember this amazing man and were dressing up to help us remember him.

Thankyou President Hinckley! Your an amazing man!

How do words even discribe a person such as Pres Hinckley. He was a true servant of the Lord. He gave without asking for anything in return. His love of all people of the world is like that of the Savior. We are a better family because of his Christ like example. We have3 a desire to be better because Of Pres. Hinckley.
