God bless you, President Hinckley. I will miss hearing your voice and testimony, and feeling of your love for all of us. I rejoice, however, in your reunion with your sweet wife, your parents, the Prophet Joseph and so many others. We love you dearly. God be with you till we meet again.

Bob from NC

And to the Deseret news staff,
what a great article, I have read it over and over and have printed it for our family home evening...
Thank You.


My 12 year old son, William, came into our room late last night unable to sleep; he had been crying as he overheard a phone conversation we had just had about the passing of President Gordon B. Hinckley. In his own way of coping he said, "Well, President Hinckley is now one of the Great Prophets of the Past!"

Yet, his mortal legacy will always be present, as it will continue to bless the lives of the Saints and their descendants into the Millennium and beyond.

Thank you President Hinckley for your exemplary devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and your endearing love for all mankind. As one who not only Stood For Something, but also tirelessly worked for the betterment of all God's children, you were the epitome of a true Latter-day Disciple of Christ.

In life you humbly eschewed the praises of man, but now in the spirit you will not be able to silence their tributes!

God Bless you and your loved ones forever.

The Gunson's


Pres. Hinckley was a great leader and inspiration to us all. He will be greatly missed.

Tyler Family

We loved you our prophet. Thank you for Standing For Something! You led us and inspired us. For that we will be forever grateful.

Pres. Hinckley a true disciple of God through his ever loving Christlike service to All of God's children. He will be missed greatly and we as members need to "Carry on - carry on!" like he said. Sincere condolences and love to his family.

To heed his council is the best way we can pay our respects. The world needs to listen to the simple truths that he professed and taught. The proclamation to the world about families is one of the most treasured doctrines we have.

It is comforting to know that he was received by loved ones including his dear wife and our Savior.

I have no doubt he is already up there serving relentlessly. What an example and inspiration.

We love you and will miss you until our reunion.


He was a builder of men and buildings.
Hope I can accomplish something at least 1% of what he did! I will have lived a lifetime. He has done about 100 men's worth of accomplishments. I hope he can rest for a while in heaven after he sees his wife and dear friends.


Gordon B. Hinckley, rest in peace, my friend.

As a convert to the church in the mid '80s he was one of the leaders that I was particularly drawn to. He seemed to be such a decent man that inpired everyone, of his religion or not.

He will certainly be missed, but not forgotten.

What a great man! He will be missed by all. My prayers to his family.

We loved President Hinckley here in West Virginia and send our sympathies to his family.

I am so thankful for President Hinckley. For his example, his leadership, his humor, his optimism, and his love. He has been a hero to me and inspired me to continually try a little harder to do a little better.
He truly was a Prophet of God! I will always love and who I will greatly miss, our dear President Hinckley.

Bro Christensen

In my opinion he was the greatest prophet of the twentieth century. He will be greatly missed, but he has trained many great men to take his place. God bless his family!

Selfaison, Vacaville CA

President Gordon B. Hinckley was my hero. He was a great friend and truly a prophet of God. I am grateful for his righteous example and teachings. I remembered as a young boy, he invited my family to his home. We had the best family home evening that I will never forget. God be with you till we meet again

The world in quantum has lost its best friend. It is difficult to form the proper conjecture in such a monumental time when my heart is so affected with sadness. Contrary to such feelings, I contemplate the most eventful happenstance on the other side of the veil of our Prophet reuniting with his sweet wife and many other loved ones. Oh, what an oxymoran of miserable joy that I feel! I will always remember President Hinckley as the "builder" as he forwarded the building of the confernce center, the building of so many temples, and the building of the church's rapport through the media. I will so miss this great builder.

Hassler Family

We are so thankful for the legacy that Prophet Hinckely has left us. What an amazing man. He will be greatly missed.


Seigneur merci pour le Prophte
Qui nous guide en ces derniers jours
Oh Dieu donne pour la conqute
Ton constant soutien ton secours
Louange pour ton Evangile
Qui nous conduira prs de toi
Oui l'obissance c'est facile
Pour qui aime ta sainte loi

President Hinckley, thank you for all teaching you give us by the conference or the Liahona. You are a great example for all members of the Church. We will miss you, but we know that the dead is a part of the plan of salvation of our heavenly father... Even if we live in a island of French Polynesia, we always have a think for you because we love you. Everytime we prayed for you, for your health and for your family. You are a great man in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ...

Chris Sambrano

I was very sadden at first but then in the same breath I was so happy to know the wonderful reunion he is having with his beloved wife, Marjorie, and his family that has passed on before him. I also pictured him meeting President Joseph Smith and the other wonderful prophets that have preceded him. What a glorious reunion for him. I love him and am very grateful for his wonderful service he did for us while on this earth. He will be greatly missed!


We are all sadden by this loss of a great, special man. He shall be missed by all who knew him. He was an inspiration and a strength to me personally. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
