Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley has been a good man and a good leaders. He has been the inspiration of the many members of the Church. We love you and will miss you. Thank you for the many lessons and guidance you gave us. We will remember you forever.


Such a small thing to leave one of hundreds of comments, but i sit here with tears in my eyes and feel compelled to say thank you to Heavenly Father for such a great man. Truly a prophet of God, and a wonderful, dear, and honorable man.

President Hinckley,

You have blessed my life with your love, optimism and kindness. I love you and am grateful for all that you are. A Prophet of God. Christ's emmisary here on earth. I thank God for your wonderful life!

He lived a long and prosperous life. I know I speak for many members of the church when i say that he is deeply loved and will be greatly missed.


Til we meet again.

Tears were rolling down our cheeks as we envisioned you embracing your beloved wife in the spirit world. Also being welcomed by your very dear friend James E. Faust...(we will always remember your humor with regards to him)...and being welcomed by many other great members of the Church, who have passed away.
We are thankful for the years you served as a Prophet of the Lord. Your teachings will be treasured by our family forever.
Our condolences to your family.
We will always keep you in our hearts.

God speed Gordon B. Hinckley. You are already missed.

My initial feeling was deep sadness which quickly turned to joy as I thought of him reuniting with his wife and others. We truly "thank Thee Oh God" for this Prophet. He will be missed terribly!


The world lost a great light tonight. We need to pick up the torch!

This man of incredible vision and love, what a loss to the world. I will miss his optimism and loving leadership, this phrophet of God.

It brings tears to my eyes to think that we will not hear his faith-promoting voice, see his ever-present smile, or listen to his dry wit in General Conference. I've hoped that he could continue to lead the church, but know that God has chosen another to continue to carry the mantle of prophet upon the earth. May he now enjoy a season of rest with his wonderful wife.

The End of an Era: This man was a great example of optomisim over pessimism. I felt like he was my grandpa or something always saying the things I needed to hear.
I imagine the happiest spot in the Universe this evening is wherever he is with his Wife Majorie. Best Wishes to him in his next phase of immortality. Much love to his Family.

Farewell dear friend. We'll miss you tremendously in this life, but I'm happy for you at the same time that you could reunite with your wife and other friends that have passed on. God bless you for all your devoted service over the years.

President Hinckley will be greatly missed. He was a wonderful and inspired man and I love him. I go to Mountain View High and we are also dressing up to honor President Hinckley's life. What a sad thing that he is gone. But what a wonderful thing to be able to be with his wife Marjorie. Can you imagine the kind of reception he received on the other side of the veil? This man did so much not just for our church but for the world! He was so loving and kind. He truly cared about everyone he met. He loved serving everyone! And by doing so he was serving our Lord. I love him so much and hope I can someday be the example he was to the world.

He will be missed. What a great guy he was! So vibrant and positive about our future. He said a lot about what a great future we have coming to us and not to be so gloomy about it. That impressed me the most and I tell people to cheer up and look forward to a good future. After all, it is our choice how we want our future to be and his positiveness showed us that it is definitely possible. I loved his speeches. I never had one speech come that I didn't like. I am going to miss seeing him and seeing his cane that he walked with and the smile he always had for everyone. What a man! And I'm sure he's very happy being back with his wife again and busy working doing what they needed him there to do. The world is a better place in many ways because of President Gordon Hinckley. He was loved by many.
