His words are so like the Man:

"Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face,
but with great and strong purpose in your heart."

Gordon B. Hinckley

A sad, but necessary step. He was a very humble man.

Olsen, Washington, D.C.

Congratulations on a remarkable life well lived. You lived and loved to the fullest; thank you for your amazing example! How we will miss your sense of humor, your testimony, your example. How happy we are for you and how we wish we could witness the beautiful reunion that is taking place right now between you, your sweet eternal companion and all the many, many people greeting you and welcoming you home. Well done.

God be with you until we meet again.

The Bryan Family in MI

We were so sad to hear of President Hinckley's passing. We have loved him deeply. We are sad for us, but happy for him to be with his wife again and receive rest from his labors. We feel so much love and appreciation for his leadership, humor and love. He is a man that has literally changed the world!

Carole Knowles

I will miss President Hinckley. He is a kind and powerful leader. He is a prophet of God. The children love him and so do I.

The Bryce Family

Thank you President Hinckley for living a life that reflected Christ's light in a modern world. We, as a Church, will honor your legacy by sustaining your successor in our thoughts, words, and deeds...we will carry on! You will not be replaced in our hearts but rather we will make more room there and increase our capacities...these are the lessons you taught us. A small man with such a large footprint in life on the strait and narrow path. Our prayers are with your family and friends. Thank you for the love and the sacrifices of time you gave to all of us...we will not mourn but rather celebrate your amazing life.

Joyous!

My non-LDS father died the morning of January 27th with his family with him. I know that his entry into the spirit world was a joyous reunion with loved ones and we here on Earth are happy his suffering is over.

Later that day our beloved prophet also passed through the veil and had a reunion with his loved ones.

I can't help but picture this great man rejoicing with and perhaps embracing my dad! I imagine that the missionary effort there will now be directed by one of this earth's greatest missionaries and that my dear dad might now grasp the eternal significance of the Gospel.

Thank-you, President Hinckley for all you have done for us mortals and for the Lord's cause, and now you and my father are both standing a little taller! The tears that run down my cheeks are of joy. What a wonderful day for them both.

Philippines Saint

We will miss his inspired leadership and the love he extended to this island land. I speak for thousands of saints blessed by this wondereful prophet who dedicated the islands of the Philippines to the Missionary Work almost 50 years ago.

Sherwood, AR

I was sad President Hinkley left our earth but very joyful knowing that he is finally with his beloved wife that he has missed so very much. What a glorious homecoming he surely had. I can't imagine how many people on the other side of the veil were lined up with hugs and kisses to greet our Prophet. We could all hope and pray for such a glorious homecoming as he is having at this moment. God bless his family and each one of us to carry on.

I was in shock to here President Hinkley's passing away. I pray for his family for support from our Heavenly Father. President Hinkley was very loved by everyone and will be missed. He will have more work on the other side. We here on this side will miss him. We love you, Pres Hinkley.

Alex from Chile

Aun cuando la pena embarga mi espritu, me siento altmente agradecido por haberle conocido, por cada una de sus visitas a Chile (1996, 1999, 2006), por todas sus maravillosas enseanzas, por sentir su manto proftico, por el amor que siempre nos brindaba, por hacer llegar a muchos santos en todo el mundo las bendiciones del Templo.
Tenemos mucho por agradecer y sentirnos felices por haber tenido a un maravilloso hombre para presidir la Iglesia en este tiempo. Oremos en nuestros corazones por su familia, por sus amigos y por nosotros mismos.
Extraaremos profundamente todas sus enseanzas.
Desde Chile...

Ramona S. Harrell

The greatest man I have ever known. Though I saw him only once, I felt the spirit like I have never felt before. A true Prophet of God.

Only positive things can be said of President Hinckley. What an incredible man and leader! He can now be reunited with his wonderful wife.

President Hinckley was called into the first presidency only a few months after I was baptized as a convert of 16. It's hard to imagine the church without his steadying presence, but carry on we must. A great man and an unexampled leader, but I am confident the cause of Zion will go onward and upward, thanks in no small measure to the impetus of his tremendous administration. Thank you, President Hinckley, and RIP.

BARRIO LA ROTARIA". VENEZUELA.

RUEGO A LOS SANTOS DE ESTA IGLESIA Y MUY ESPECIALMENTE A LOS DE NUESTRO BARRIO, QUE SIGAMOS LOS SIEMPRE SABIOS CONSEJOS Y ENSEANZAS DE NUESTRO AMADO PROFETA, GORDON B. HINCKLEY Y QUE LOS APLIQUEMOS EN NUESTRAS VIDAS, DA A DA. SENTIMOS GRAN PESAR POR EL AMOR QUE LE TENEMOS, PERO GRAN GOZO EN NUESTROS CORAZONES POR SU REENCUENTRO CON SU AMADA ESPOSA, MARJORIE, Y CON SUS DEMS SERES AMADOS QUIENES PARTIERON ANTES QUE L. "LE AMAMOS, PRESIDENTE HINCKLEY Y LE RECORDAREMOS SIEMPRE".

OBISPO, ALAN ROMAY.
