President Hinckley has been a fixture in our home and hearts ever since we joined the Church nearly twenty five years ago. It is hard to imagine our lives without him. What a privilege to have been taught and loved by him. The breadth and depth of his teachings and example has blessed our lives forever. Our condolences to his family at this difficult time.

President Hinckley was in my opinion one of the greatest men the world has ever known.

God Bless him.

The greatest leader of the 20th Century is gone from among us. I will miss him in so many ways, but more than anything I think, I will miss his sense of humor and his immense ability to inspire courage and faith among those of us who loved him.

Bowne Family

Let us carry on as he would have us do! I am so grateful that our Heavenly Father and our Saviour Jesus Christ will call the next leader for us to keep moving forward!! We love you!

A life beautifully and purposefully lived--President Hinckley will be so very missed, and is so very loved. From Saints all over the globe, as well as non-member friends, he leaves us a legacy to live up to and fulfill. My heart goes out to his family and all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

What an incredrible example to the world. You will live on in the hearts of millions.


Good morning. I am so grateful to hear all the positive comments and rememberances on this stream. Sometimes this board is less than positive. To those who may be tempted with negativity today I humbly ask,Not here, Not today. Gordon B. Hinckley is a great man who is loved and revered by millions and will be sadly missed. He was a prophet, a great humanitarian, a humble, humorous and loving man.
God be with you, till we meet again!

Robert Lee Johnson

I thank God for men such as you and I thank you for the counsel you have given me. Farewell until we meet again.

Our "Energizer Bunny" President

He just kept going and going. He was amazing. We loved him and will miss him, but are glad that he and his beloved Marjorie have been reunited.

Our condolences go to his family and friends. RIP, President Hinckley.

President Hinckley,

I will always be grateful for your persistent emphasis on the pragmatic over the dogmatic. You gave me realistic goals to shoot for rather than reminding me of everything I could be doing. You continually reminded me to focus on improving where it matters most: showing love and kindness to my wife and children always; being tolerant of all people, regardless of their beliefs or persuasions; getting as much education as possible; staying out of debt and living within my means; keeping my temper in check; being willing to forgive quickly.... My family--including my wife who is not of our faith--will miss you greatly. I thank you for your example, your boldness and courage, your sense of humor, your humility, your hope, your leadership, your "human-ness," your love.

Sharon Tallman

I loved President Hinckley and am so grateful for his loving and wise guidance as our prophet. How blessed our world has been to have him in it these 97 years!

I would like to express my gratitude to the Hinckley family for sharing him with us for so long. Certainly, many sacrifices have been made by them in order for him to serve as our prohet. I appreciate each of them for their willingness to share him with us.

May the Lord comfort his family and us all as we mourn this great prophet's passing.
