President Hinckley was truly a prophet of God. We are very grateful and been truly blessed to have lived in a time of his dedicated service to members of the Church worldwide. We have been inspired in many ways by his leadership and guidance, and especially studying his many inspired talks in general conferences. You will be greatly missed by many who have come to love and honour you Pres. Hinckley. Your teachings and words of counsel will stay with us forever. God bless your family.

Few hours ago, Italy has learned about President Hinckley's death. The Saints in this troubled country will miss him greatly. His firm guidance, loving heart, zest for life and all-around Christ like example has reached this part of the world with constant and reassuring devotion.

His leadership has left a permanent mark in the lives of those who were fortunate enough to listen to his voice.

The joy of knowing of his reunion with his beloved wife and with our Savior, illuminates our future steps and gives us the courage to go forward. Nevertheless we will all miss his dear smile and guidance. Thank you President Hinckley, we love you!

I'm a Roman Catholic who respects your Church very much! I am so sad to hear of the passing of your President. I offer sympathy to the entire LDS family!


Thank you President Hinckley. As a youth he is the only one I will have many memories of him. When I heard this last night I instantly was filled with tears. He was a truly a amazing and inspiring man.


I enjoyed your sense of humor and wit. I am glad your with your beloved Marjorie. I extend sympathy to your family, the quorum of 12, and all members of the church as we move on to another prophet of God.

While I have sometimes dissagreed with some of the think Pres. Hinkley has said, I cannot dispute the wonderful works he has done. And from myself and my fiancee April, our prayers are with his family.
And we all look foreward to joining himm when it's our turn to pass through the vail

What startling news, I guess that we thought he would just keep going for ever. The world has suffered a great loss, but have been so blessed to have had this wonderful selfless man and prophet of the Lord with us. What a model of righteousness. We will miss him.
