Prophets are a great blessing. President Hinckley has been a blessing for members throughout the world. When members in Honduras were hit by hurricane Mitch in 1998 his visit to our country was a glimpse of hope and happiness in the middle of sadness and devastation. How to forget his humor, wisdom and optimism... The life of this great man has been an inspiration for so many!

Our family loves Pres. Hinckley and we will miss him. But while the earth mourns, what a great reunion there must be in Heaven as one of the great sons of God returns in honor. And now, God bless Pres. Monson.

President Hinckley, we will miss you dearly. Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother passed away the day before you did. I'm sure our families are rejoicing on the other side together. Til we meet again.

Words cannot express the love I felt for President Hinckley. He was a wonderful President and Prophet. He will be greately missed. Reading all the comments posted reafirmed the love he had for all of us. He will be missed by so many people. Thank you President Hinkley for your great example to me.

The Campbell's

We were surprised to hear the news, and were hoping that he would make it to 100. It was probably hard to serve without his wife, now he is re-united. We will miss his inspiration, and witty personality. Thank you President Hinckley for your great example and great wisdom. Our condolences go out to the Hinckley family.


My condolences go out to the family. President Hinckley was a wonderful man, a man of vision, and deep, vibrant faith. His words have always lifted me and inspired me to become a better person.

He will be sorely missed by his Church family. The service he performed in the Church as a leader and outside it as a spokesman and an example of Christlike living was invaluable to us.

I can imagine the fantastic reunion that just took place as he once again held his wife, parents and other family and friends that preceded him. We love you, President Hinckley, and will miss you.


Let us all remember the legacy of President Hinckley. He taught us so many wonderful things and his sweet spirit will truly be missed! He has been the prophet of my youth and I loved him.


President Hinkley was called as President of this church in June 1995. I sent my papers to the First Presidency in June 1995 to go on a mission. I would have been one of the first he approved to go. I have always felt a deep respect for this great man since then. Thank you for helping to bring the church "out of obscurity and darkness" in a positive manner and light!!

What a wonderful prophet and leader. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to his family.

Lucille Laird

President Hinkley influenced my life greatly through his writings, his leadership, and through the example of unconditional love for Jesus Christ and for all of mankind. My heart is sad at his leaving, but I know through the teachings of the church that he will continue his work on the other side of the veil. I give thanks to our Heavenly Father for the blessing we call President Hinkley. What an exceptional man, this Prophet dear!

We love President Hinckley and will miss him. He has touched so many lives and will continue to do so. Our condolences go out to his family and loved ones. I'm grateful he can reunite with his dear wife.

Pat Wheeler

Heaven is rejoicing this day with the return home of a mighty man of God. What a blessed experience to have known, loved and been led through his prophetic calling all these years. His humor, wisdom and powerful testimony of the Saviour and his divine ministry have blessed my life. He will be tremdnously missed. My love and condolances to his family and associates.

President Hinckley created the ultimate monuments on the Mississppi and Missouri. The Nauvoo and Winter Quarter's temples surround the great state of Iowa. Thank you President Hinckley!


Gordon B., we hardly knew thee. Too soon, too soon.
