My heart is heavy with sorrow for the loss of this great man, my prophet. I can only imagine those who were waiting to greet him as he passed through the veil. What a great reunion that must have been. My prayers go out to the family.


I am sad : (


I pray that I can continue to live my life as he has instructed and taught so many times. I am sure he was welcomed home to heaven with love and open arms. I hope I will be able to be in your presence again. Much love and prayers to your fmaily!


We will definately miss President Hinckley. He was an amazing person as well as an amazing prophet. He did so much for not only the church, but for this world. He is loved, and will dearly missed, but his life and ministry will live on for years to come. We love you President Hinckley!

A true giant amoung men is gone, to lay claim to the glorious reward that awaits those who have loved and kept his word and have been true and faithful. I admired and loved this remarkable man who led this church for so long with a sense of humor and quiet dedication and dignity, the lives of all he touch may never be fully known but I am one whose life he touched and who was greatly blessed by his words and his example. I shall ever tresure his memory and his ministry and look forward to the day to meet this giant of a man once again.

As a Prophet, as well as a man, he is and will always be a wonderful example of how our life should be. We remember how he always exemplified love, concern for all mankind and charity. Will remember his wonderful words that made us smile, laugh and ponder a better way of life. President Hinkley, You will be missed, but always remembered! Lot's of love and comfort to the Hinkley Family, and to all the members of the Church and the world let's follow his words, actions and honor his work and his life...!


I will miss him so much. He was the only prophet that I ever knew. It's really hard to believe that he is gone. However, it's comforting to know that he is with his wife.

He has blessed the lives of millions across the earth with his prophetic inspiration of humanitarian aid, perpetual education fund and mini temples. Our lives will ever be better because of his dedication and efforts and sacrifice in our behalf. The Taylor Family is eternally greatful for his guidence and love. We will miss you President Hinkley, but we recognize your place of eternal existence with your wife and forebarers for which we are peace with your passing. Well done thou good and faithful servant.

Great Example

I cannot think of a greater example from birth to death than Pres Hinckley. General Conference will still be great but different. Our prayers go out to the family.
