To the Hinckley Family

Your father and grandfather and everything he was to you was a great leader. His wife was a wonderful, intelligent woman. We're descendants of the pioneers in a unique valley as well. President Hinckley stood for everything pure and good and right and wise. He was understanding and compassionate and Marjory was a splendid lady. Certainly they are happy beyond measure and certainly their spirits call to ours. Adulation is a word I learned from President Hinckley in describing a more pure love for Marjory and I say to anyone absent of adulation that Gordon B. Hinckley was your friend whether you knew it or not - He love you because he loved all of God's children and his life means something to you whether you know it or not. There is a God in the universe who knows all things and he knows you and he knows him. His life is such an example of hard work and dedication and moving 'forward with faith' in the construction of temples and so many other great works. We love you and send our best to you and your family. - A Salt Lake City Resident.

His shoes will be hard to fill. But this is the midnight hour. Soon the righteous shall be gathered to be with the Lord forevermore.

I was shocked to hear the news. I will truly miss President Hinckley. What a great man! What a wonderful example he has been to the world. My families prayers will be for his family tonight. Thank you Hinckley family for sharing him with us. He made the world a brighter place where ever he went.

Joseph

Thank you President Hinkley. You have touched my life in so many ways. Words can't describe how you will be missed.

What a blessing to live with President Hinkley as our Prophet Seer and Revelator. May we all honor him by living by his teachings. What a glorious reunion it must have been with his Sweetheart. God be with you till we meet again our dear Prophet!

Adam McBride

This man, chosen of the Lord, inspired millions of people for good and brought so many to Christ. Undoubtedly, he is enjoying a sweet reunion with his dear Marjorie and many other family members and leaders. The Lord, in a way that I cannot totally explain, gave him the gift of sharing his love in a manner in which each individual felt as if they intimately knew him personally. I look forward to the day when I can shake his hand and thank him personally for teaching me about our Savior Jesus Christ.

To me and many of my generation, President Hinckley was "our prophet" -- loved, honored, and revered much like Brother Joseph was to those of his day. How we will miss him. Let us all commit to living as he taught us: to always strive to be better and to be a little kinder to everyone, regardless of religion or circumstance. That would truly honor his memory.

Let's show our love and appreciation for President Hinckley by living the way that he taught us to live.

Well done thou good and faithful servant.

Our condolences to the Hinkley family for the passing of your loved one. So sad for many of us but much joy for those that have passed on before us. Thank you for allowing him to serve the Lord in such great capacity, and for becoming the center of our lives through his teachings, words, and examples. What a "Great Individual" and blessing he will forever be to my family and I.
May the good Lord continue to bless all of you in your own lives during your time of sorrow, we'll forever love him. Love and Aloha, Masoe's.

We will miss you.

He was a great ambassdor for your Church. I am not LDS, but I was always inspired by his words of wisdom. He was a great man of God.

President Hinckley's passing moved my non-LDS eyes to tears. I am there comforting my Mormon girlfriend. I am comforted that President Hinckley is awaited in Heaven by his wife.

Gail from Connecticut

President Hinckley left the world a better place than it would have been without his service. Thank you for being a loving prophet with a mission. God bless the Hinckley family. God bless President Thomas S. Monson

What an inspirational life, from every man, women and child who has spoken your name in sacrament meetings across the world bearing witness of your solemn calling as prophet, seer and revelator.

I know he is a prophet of God and that his life was preserved to fulfill the work he was called to do. His life, love, and dedication reflect the pure love of Jesus Christ. I feel such love and gratitude for his influence in my life. He will be greatly missed, but I am so thankful to know that he is again reunited with loved ones that have passed on before him. He has been a worthy instrument in the hands of God, who's life has touched others worldwide. I am so grateful for him and want to be a better person because of him. I have come to know the love that Jesus Christ has for me, because of the love I have felt for and from President Hinckley. I will be forever grateful for his influence in my life. Our prayers are with his family and with the leaders of the church.
