What a great man he will be missed. I know he did great work around the world and was able to meet the man in Idaho.

We miss you

Although I knew it was going to happen it is still hard to say good bye to President Hinckley. He inspired, loved, and guided so many to stand a little taller. I will miss his cane waving and humor but am grateful for how we are all a little better because of his life and service.

Our Prophet held on as does a trees last leaf
To give his people a clear strategy.
Built on Gods instruction, and if we have the faith.
He's blessed us with strength to do as the Lord sayeth.
Hes taught us of Jesus Christ,
And of his light to guide.
Hes led us to Jesus Christ.
To see us through our time.

St. George

Sad in one sense, but joyful now that he will be with his beloved wife. I am sad for all of us, but happy for President Hinckley.

What a great loss the world has suffered. He was a wonderful man and an inspiring leader. But I am sure that he is happy today while the rest of us mourn his passing. May President Monson and the rest of our leaders feel our prayers and have their burdens lifted as they deal with this great loss.

What a great man & wonderful example of obedience to Heavenly Father's will! Over the last years, I've grown to love this special man, a prophet of God, for all that he has done in the upbuilding of our Heavenly Father's kingdom here on the earth!
Thank you so much, President Hinckley! You will be greatly missed by myself (& many others)!

President Hinckley will sorely by missed by many including his family and friends. I love Pres. Hinckley for the man and example he was. May his memory live on and we strive a little harder to be better people becuase he lived. He set the proper example of a Christ like life.

A friend told me this sad news through Massenger this morning; what a great LOSS! Tears came to my eyes as I read through these news articles...He was so vibrant that I felt he could keep living forever! President Hinkley will be missed so dearly!!! It's good to know that he died so peacefully though and he's reunited with his dear wife at God's side.

Dave Walker

What an amazing man and Prophet! The impact he made on my life as well as millions of others will be remembered forever. For him, there was only one way to do things, and that was the right way. I just want to take this chance to say goodbye and thank him for his life. I love him and will miss him, but he's once again with the girl of his dreams.

Sharlese and Rob

He was a great prophet and lived an honest life - that is the most thing for Rob and I to live an honest life.

Wendy Ann

A devoted sister, raised under another great prophet, David O. McKay, I say President Hinkley, you will remain a great inspiration, a leader and a great prophet. You are with our families in heaven, your dear wife and family members, my blessed grandfather, Mariner W. McNeil, my grandmother, my mother, Afton, her sisters and my father, my nephew D.J., and my dear sweet Mac. Take care all, we will be together again, I testify to that, in God's presence. Amen.

Alex

As sad as I am to hear the news of President Hinckley's passing, you can't help but be incredibly happy that he is finally with his dear wife again. He was truly an inspiration to us all. He really changed my life as he did many.
We love you President Hinckley, thank you.

Ryan

Praise to the man. President Hinckley was a prophet, seer, and revelator unequaled in our generation.

Thank you.

Times like this the heart is so full that words cannot express the depth of ones feelings. I know he is truly a great man of God, a Prophet. Thank goodness for his life and all he stood for and all he taught. He will never be truly gone because he will remain in our thoughts and our heart here. May we all be worthy to be where he is when it is our time to go.
