been the prophet all of all of my life. I will miss him dearly. What a sweet

his cane at us and walked to his seat. He was such a good guy and I only hope

truely a man following in the footsteps of our Lord.
A toast to the life and times of our beloved prophet..May heaven need you as
much as we have-Amen
We love you President Hinckley. You were a wonderful man who served many. How I,
a youth, shall miss you. My first prophet, live on.
I was about ready to write that I never knew President Hinckley personally.
However, anyone who had ever heard him speak or had the wonderful experience of
being in the same building as this great man knew him personally. Such was the
way he affected all with his radiant sense of humor and captivating smile. A
great man, a wonderful prophet, a child of God. The heaven's rejoice, the earth
weeps at his passing. Yet we know that we will meet again. That is the message
he left with us all. Eternity awaits all who are faithful. Our prayer's are with
the Hinckley family. Our prayer's also are with President Monson, his is a
mission that needs our sustaining vote, and our continued support. God bless you
God bless President Hinkley. I would love to have been there on the other side
when you met those waiting for you. I must be a fantastic reunion!
Gordon B.Hinkley was born on this earth to liveHis special mission, to

President Hinkley was such agood prophet. He was the person who encouraged me to
read the book of mormon and I thank him for that. Thank You presedent Hinkley
for your service. Your family is in my prayers.
dear hinckley family i am so sorry for loss he is in a better place with his
Life is for the living and President Hinckley lived his a fully as one can. He
touched many in ways that have changed them forever. He is already missed but
the Lord has prepared a strong leader to step into his place.
Dear president Hinckle, thank you for your years of service, for your love and
good example. We are going to miss you so much. Well always love you.
President Hinckley would be the first to admit that he taught nothing new or
profound or revolutionary. Everything he taught he got from Jesus, who is the
real head of the Church. Although President Hinckley was a great administrator
of a physical organization, let's please not forget who we worship and why --
lest our enemies find fault with our misplaced "hero-worship" and we give them
evidence for the accusation.
I will feel lack of the teachings of pre. hinckley, but I know that it this in
the perpetual dwelling. I know that it lives. Morni 8:3
CONCORD, CALIFORNIAWhat a great loss to the world! His marvelous
works,affections and advises have permanently treasured in our hearts and from
our generation to our kids generations will be remembered.I have
taught myself with your 5B's speech and succeed! I am now teaching this
principles to my children and I am sure my children will pass it to their
children!You are a great leader, great prophet, great light, great
father, great man and a great example!We love you so...dearly and
our condolences and sympathy to your family.MA'AKE FAMILYCONCORD CALIFORNIA
In shock here in the isles of the sea. What a man!
I thank thee God for this prophet. I mean that.
Congelese LDS, I have read many of his discourses.he teached me important
lessons of life.
Eventhough, I have never Met President Hinckley, I will always Remember his
Smile and the words he gave to all of us, Whenever Conference time comes around,
I will Alwayd keep him in my Heart as he is a Prophet of God.
i didn't meet the prophet but i always make sure i attend every conference so i
could listen to his voice. When i have the chance to meet him in the spirit
world i would personally thank him for what he did to me and to the whole
world.My family has been blessed becuase of him. He may be thousands of miles
away from me but his exmaple has penetrated into my heart. I love Pres.
Hinckley and glad that he already met Sis. Hincley
A great man Unmatched in Christian serviceOn wings of glory to
As a rank and file member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who
was only in President Hinckley's presence a couple of times, I would just like
to say (borrowing from Brigham Young), "I feel like shouting Hallelujah every
time I think that I had the privilege of knowing Gordon B. Hinckley, the
God bless Gordon B. Hinckley. He was the prophet during many of the significant
events of my life and is a great example to me.I met President
Hinckley in the Salt Lake Temple just before I left on a 2 year mission. It was
a great faith building experience that I will remember all of my life.He will be missed but I'm sure he's hard at work on the other side (Alma
he was a kind,humble man.he taught us that love and service to all mankind was
better than preaching without practise or doctrine without doing. we love you.
Pres was a great man.
A lovely humble man who inspired and led by example. We will miss bright eyes
and sweet smile as he is reunited with his loved ones. Til we meet again.
A man who gave until the end. God bless you from the Southerners.
He performed a great work in temple building. The whole world has been blessed
by the power that comes from the Houses of the Lord. Indeed "a wonderful work
and a wonder".
I never had the chance of seeing Pres. Hinckley in person but I've felt like I
knew him like my own father. I am now 20 years old and almost all my life I have
heard inspirational messages from him like he was talking to me in person. I can
see the sincerity and truthfulness of his words though we are thousand miles
away. I was really sad for a lost of a Great prophet and President of the church
but also am happy for him because he finally had the chance to be with his
loving wife. He is indeed a GREAT MAN who inspired many lives and who had helped
the church to reach its growth. A picture of him in our home acts as a
constant reminder of his counsels and had brought peacefulness in our family.I love him and He will always be remembered.. A GREAT PROPHET who
served a good life for 97 years! We Love you so much..Till we meet
again, Pres. Hinckley!
he was a wonderful man and he will be missed but i also no in my heart that he
is in a better place.
Truly a beloved prophet we all will miss, but at the same time we rejoice with
him as he enters his well earned rest to be reunited to his eternal wife. May
the grace of God flow forever upon him and his family for the great witness he
has given this world of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
President Hinckley was a great Prophet. I enjoyed hearing him speak. He will be
missed all the way. He is now with his beloved wife. I send my sympathy to all
How we will miss our wonderful friend! We have loved him so much; moreover, he
loved us all. God bless and comfort the Hinckley family, and God bless our new
It hards for me to say goodbye to our Beloved Prophet -President Golden B.
Hinckley..Then I know that we all will meet again and be together forever...We
are so blessed to lead by you..We love you. Your last speech on Jan 13 2008 in
Garden Grove Stake Conference seem for me personal...You know what we need as
Our Father knows.We love you
I am 4th generation LDS,I have a lot of pride of myancesters,they endured
to the end!!! Brother Hinkleyhas been the most industerous,and results
orientedPresident of our church, with the exception of JosefSmith,who restablished the true church in these latter days. I have seen
President Hinkley at ourconferances,and read all the good things he
acomp-lished during his liftime. Being a faithful servantof the
Lord,these many years, brother Hinkley will be remembered as being "Faithful to
the end". I truly am blessed to be a member of the LDS church.Wehave to do
our own good deeds,and endure to the end.I feel it has been my pleasure to
have known such a man, and being on earth when he was showing every-one
the true meaning of love,devotion,and being selfless in all things he
attempted(brother Hinkley)Good health,bad health didn't even slow brother
Hinkley down,he will be rembered and missed by mill-ions of
people,reguardless of religion or purpose.Thank you brother Hinkley for
your examples to liveby!!!Truly a messenger of God!!!
I will definitely miss him. He was a great prophet, seer & revelator. During his
lifetime as President of the Church he has done a lot for me. I have been sealed
to my husband and my parents at the Palmyra Temple which he dedicated. It has
been the greatest honor to know the beloved Prophet of the Church. I am sure
President Monson will carry on his beloved work.
For hinckeley .. More I can say is he is no longer among us? (I
carega it me forever, and its teachings also) I love the prophet!(Cable) pernambuco-BrazilLove be lds!!

We will miss out prophet greatly but his work he was done. It is now up to us
to continue. Our prayers are with his family.
He was a great man and hes know happy he gets to be with his wife and i bet u
hes with Joseph Smith right know talking with Jesus Christ.. He was a very
I was shocked when I heard that our beloved prophet died on Sunday. I knew that
he was getting very old, but it almost seemed like he would live forever on the
earth! He's the only prophet I can ever remember and I will miss him dearly. But
I can't help but to feel overjoyed knowing that he is with his family that has
waited so long to finally see him again. We love you, President Hinckley, and
you will be missed.
If we could all say that we have accomplished a quarter of what President
Hinckley did we would have lived a meaningful life. We'll miss him!
As a convert of age 14, i and my converting family are truly growing eternally.
My prayers 2d Hinkley family, will miss his accountance. I love the restoration
"The Church of JesusChrist of Latter day Saints". :)...age21 and goin on a
mission soon! keep it up saints!
I love this man with all my heart.When he died I felt like someone had put
their hand inside of me and pulled something right out. Words can't describe
how much we all loved him and looked up to his incredible knowledge and example.
May his LEGACY LIVE ON FOREVER! We will never forget President
Gordon B. Hinckley.I know that he was a TRUE PROPHET OF GOD!
Thank you for showing us what it truly means to endure to the end. God be with
you until we meet again.
President Hinkley will be missed, especially by me. But I can't help seeing a
picture in my mind of him with his wife, whom he loved so dearly. He has
returned home with honor, to his Father in heaven, and his beloved wife. When I
morn it is only for my own loss, for I know he is so very much happier where he
is. Thanks for all the good work you did President Hinkley, and especially for
your trip to Tasmania. It was a small thing, a small place, but it meant so
What a mounument of a man! I will miss his love and his example. I wish his
family the best and thank you President Hinckley for everything.
I can only imagine that, President Hinckley's death was very much like the day
Jesus Christ died. The world mouurned for our elder brother as many of us are
mourning for our Prophet. God bless his family and all the members of our
Church. May we continue to have faith and stand tall. We loved our Prophet so
very much and listened to his words of wisdom and his revelations from Heavenly
I knew the day was near at hand that he would be called home. I will miss him
and his wonderful sense of humor, as well as his many years of guidance and
direction he has given us. I pray for comfort for his family. I love this
magnificent man who was a great example to all mankind. He will be sorely missed
by me.I am grateful to have known him as my prophet !!
President Hinckley has truly blessed all members of the Church in building up of
the Kingdom by building so many Temples. He has personally blessed my life and
those of may ancestors by doing so! Whenever, I take their names I will that of
him. I loved his sense of humor and his smile. My prayers are with his family
We will sure miss our beloved Prophet, My thought & prayers go out to his
Family in their time off need.
I really thought that it was a neat thing that the people in the Salt Lake &
Utah county school did to honor President Hinckley at the time of his death I
was really neat to see all the Young kids dress up for school to honor
President, Hinckley , We will miss him Very Much, He taught everyone so much.
President Hinkley I know you loved us all individually and I loved you. I
especially appreciate the love you have for your wife and family. Your example
of equal partnership was exemplary. I am happy you are home with your beloved
sweetheart. We will all miss you, I will miss you.I best I hope for is to be
more christlike with vigor and joy as you did every day. I loved you with your
cane and your joyfull wave.
I pray for comfort and love for the family of Pres. Hinckley. He always held a
special place in his heart for the Filipinos and we will do the same for him and
am eternally grateful for the great work he has done. My family and
I will truly miss a great Prophet and a wonderful person.
We are saddened by the passing of such an enthusiastic member of the Lord's
team, enjoy the journey to your dear ones who have gone before. Our gratitude
for the enthusiasm you have always shown, and especially for inspiring us all so
much during these the last days. We love you and will miss you and may your
successor have the joy and love of the people worldwide. God bless your children

su ejemplo, servicio incansable, por su amorosa guia y su vision profetica.
Gracias siempre Presidente Hinckley.
President Hinckley showed us what all of us can become like if we will turn our
lives over to the Savior. In many ways we saw glimpses of what the
Savior is like through President Hinckley's life because he had become so much
Speak for yourself not the whole group of people.
I am not members of LDS and never meet him. I had been watch on TV several times
and also read his books. President Hinckley is marvelous man and very
inspiration on his works. I will always remember you and also your wife
Marjorie, too. I love you both of Hinckley. Prayers is always with me and in my
I feel as if my own grandfather has passed away. But what a life well-lived and
what sacrifice and devotion he has shown to the church and the world! We have
been richly blessed with his leadership and inspiration. He will be forever
missed and forever in our hearts. Love and condolences to the Hinckley family.
We love our President Hinckley very much, and miss him good talked before last

eu sei da vida dele, eu sei que ele realmente falava com deus face a face!!!!renan
When President Hinckley came to Snowflake to dedicate our temple, it was such a
privledge to be there. He is such a sweet prophet, with a wonderful sense of
humor. I think that's what kept the youth, so interested in his talks and
listening to him. Several have commented on that. We will miss you President
Hinckley, but are so happy that you're with your wife and others. Our
condolences go to your family and friends here. Thanks you and we love you
The dead of a church's leader is ever cause of a deep mourning sadness.But
dead only takes the body to his silence kingdom.Sapience and grace will
remain living between those who were his disciples and friends.And his
effort for keeping growing christian doctrine, will remain living too.
The Indians loved this good and great man!! God Bless you Pres Hinley in your
I will greatly miss us wonderful man who played such a great role in my
conversion to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When ever I heard him speak. It
always seemed as though he was talking directly to me. His ability to do this
in the message he bore drew me closer to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ every
time.I will miss him and his impact on my life ever so much. I
express my condolences to his family and friends and will pray for the comfort
of our heavenly father in the name of Jesus Christ.The impact of
this wonderful man will be felt throughout the eternities. It has truly been my
pleasure to know and love with this man.
What a great Prophet of God he was.He will be miss by so many.Our thoughts and
prayers goes out to his family. What a sweet reunion it must be w/ his eternal
companion. Thank you President Hinckley for all your love and support and your
dedication to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We love you.
Although we never met President Hinckley personally, we love him as a family
member. Being in the Conference Center with him, and watching him on the TV
screen, we could feel his goodness and his love for us. There will be a big
hole in our lives where he once was, and we will miss him. But, our hearts
rejoice over the glorious reunion he must have had with Jesus Christ, his
beloved Marjorie, and his parents!
Pres. Hinckley's whole life was one of service, and all of the measures he
implemented in building God's kingdom are truly inspired and amazing. What a
humble servant and what a great sense of humor! Thanks for everything, Pres.
Hinckley, mainly your great example. Thanks to the family, also, for sharing
him with all of us.
Great Prophet and President of the church he was. Inspiring messages and
counsels. I guess one thing he'll love to let us know is to "Carry on, Carry
on", and yes we'll carry on the work. Much love from Ghana. Rest peacefully in
the rest of the LORD.
I am thankful to have received a most important lesson from President Hinckley
since my conversion in November 2007. My life will never be the same and I will
never forget him although I've known of him for such a short time.
We will miss his sense of humor and great talks. We love him dearly. We have
been blessed to have a great man such as President Hinckley for 13 wonderful
years. We Thank Thee O God for a Prophet.
President Hinckley was an amazingly spiritual, caring, and witty leader of this
church. I have a hard time imagining what it will be like without him here to
comfort and guide us as a worldwide family. I am forever thankful for his
leadership. He made me a better person through his gentle and loving guidance.
My prayers go out to his family and close friends and associates. We thank
Thee, oh God, for a Prophet!
Our tears reflect the sincere gratitude that we feel for Gordon B. Hinkley. His
pure example and love for the Savior, Jesus Christ will live forever in our
hearts. May we all press forward with that same pure love of Christ. Let us
remember to stand a little taller; for our Savior, for President Hinkley, our
future prophet, and for each other.
The impact President Hinkley had on my life is immeasurable. His example, humor,
optimism, and faith have lifted me throughout my life. What is even more
incredible is that he had this kind of impact to millions.Thankyou
Presidnet Hinkley for a lifetime of dedicated service. Your efforts have truely
blessed millions!WE LOVE YOU!!!!
We love the prophet. He dedicated the Philippines in 1961 that's why he is so
close in our heart. He also dedicated the Manila Philippines Temple.We will miss you.Mahal ka namin!
I know that my Redeemer lives, Triumphant Savior, Son of God, - Victorious over
pain and death, My King, my Leader, and my Lord.He lives, my one sure rock
of faith, The one bright hope of men on earth, - The beacon to a better way, The
light beyond the veil of death.Oh, give me thy sweet Spirit still, The
peace that comes alone from thee, - The faith to walk the lonely road That leads
to thine eternity.Thank you President Hinckley for your legacy!
He lived a very good life...not many would reach 97 years old and have achieved
and gave as much as he did.
Tears of sorrow for the lonely void we feel, knowing that such a chosen son of
our Heavenly Father has passed from this mortal existence--immediately followed
by tears of joy brought from the Spirit comforting us with the knowledge that
our dear, sweet Prophet has been reunited with the Savior that he has served so
faithfully. I picture the Lord standing there at the veil, with His arms
extended, welcoming His Prophet home, with President Hinckley's sweet wife right
there, to share in the Lord's embrace.Thank-you to your wonderful
family for sharing you with the rest of us for all of these years.Thank-you for strengthening my testimony and bringing me closer to my Savior,
through your Christ-like example. I know you are a Prophet of God.We'll miss you, but don't worry about us too much, we know the Lord is at the
It's not easy to trust claims about a man most only felt they knew but really
didn't, but who so gracefully discharged an office weighted with expectations of
divine revelation and oracular vision. Could it be that under that burden
President Hinckley's greatest repeated insight and caution was not to take
ourselves so seriously that we lose our common humanity to the idol of
self-importance? Thank you for demonstrating that truth in so many meaningful
ways. I will try to remember. . .
Oh President Hinckly, I will miss you waving your cane in the air one more time!
I loved that joke you told in the old tabernacle when it was warm and you said
"It will get a lot warmer if you don't repent!" You had such an optimistic way.
We love you, miss you, so sad to not have you with us. God bless you and your
family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Fa'a Fetai lava with much

We loved our Prophet President Hinckley. He was such a great Father to us all. I
know he is with his wife and I bet all the past Prophets came to Welcome him
home, to be with them and rejoice together, with the LORD Jesus Christ. Well
done good and faithful servant. We will miss you, but you taught us so much. We
only wish we could have met you in Person. We will see you soon too. Love the
Cline's from Salem,Oregon
President Hinckley will be remembered for many things. However, I will remember
him as the Temple building Prophet. The best way to honor President
Hinckley's memory is to do your genealogy research and attend the Temple
I will miss his cane waving and joke telling. I feel like many of you have
mentioned. It is like my grandfather just died. He had that ability to connect
with the average person and let them know that he loved them. I am looking
forward to seeing him again.
What a great man. Truly a representative of Christ. We are so blessed to be
able to have him as the prophet during our lifetime. I'm happy that he is
finally able to take a rest from this troubled world but am sure he continues
the Lord's work along with his wife, friends and prophets modern and of old.
Most of all, I'm happy he is with Father in Heaven. What a great reunion.
What sad news for us!! But we know that you're in God with your wife now. You're
really a great man, thank you very much for your example and service. We love
you President Hinckley, see you again later.
Thank you for your service, Pres. Hinckley. 'Till we meet again. Our condolences
to all the Hinckleys.The Niendorf FamilyOakdale, CA
I wish to thank the Hinckley Family for their sacrifice of time with their Dad.
He was truly a remarkable leader. We all loved him so much. It seemed he was our
leader for many more years because he was often alone on the stand at conference
taking over the duties of the other members of the Presidencies under which he
served who were older men.His life stands as a great example of how to be a
fearless missionary and spokesperson for Christ. Thank you again and again for
your selfless life of service President Hinckley!
Thank you from Orange County. Thank you for your tireless efforts, for standing
at the crossroads, for helping to steer and guide all your your brothers and
sisters towards a happier future. We'll see you again.
Name a few things this "prophet" prophetisized. He was just a man. a misguided
man that misguided others.
I am saddened that President Hinckley did not tarry with us just another 3
years. I am sure he would have thoroughly enjoyed being the first centenarian
prophet in modern times. Of course, back in Bible days, a 100 year old was just
a young whipper snapper. Times have indeed changed, and the 100 year mark is a
rare accomplishment nowadays. Farewell, President Hinckley. Scoring 97 out of
100 is good enough.
The President Hincley, has been a beloved prophet in the last days, my family
and I saw and heard, at a conference in Culiacan, Sin. Mexico in 1998. Also in
another occasion in the dedication of the temple in Guadalajara, Mexico. For us
has been wonderful to receive from Him the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus
Christ, He will live forever in our hearts.
We love President Hinckley very much. We will miss him.
I will miss him greatly. I remember him making a comment in the last conference
in reference to that being his last conference. I think he was saying goodbye to
all that was what I thought as he made that comment, he truly is a prophet of
God. I am glad that he will be back in the arms of his loved ones.
The President Hincley, was one prophet very beloved, in latters days, my
family and I the listen and we saw, in one conference in Culiacn, Sin., Mxico en
1998. After also in other time in the dedication of temple Guadalajara, Mexico.
For we has been wonderfull receive of him the teachings of gospel of Jesus
Christ, He will live forever in our hearts.
Dear President Hinckley, We love and miss you so very much! It's hard to believe
that you have left us for a time. We are forever grateful for everything that
you have personally given to this world. We will miss your wonderful sense of
humor. You have always seemed to be so happy with life and we will miss your
bright smile. Although, we are at peace knowing that you are with your beloved,
sweet wife, Majorie. We will keep your family in our prayers.Until we meet again dear prophet. All our love to you forever.
I don't regard myself a member of any religion, which includes LDS, and perhaps
never will. But I have seen this man, have my picture taken with him and his
wife, just the 3 of us, and have felt of his of genuine love of people, which
particularly he was drawn to the Asians, which I am. And although, I
may not agree with all he had said, I will miss his humanity, his acceptance to
all sects, race and creed. There are many religious leaders, that
speaks of acceptance, which includes LDS leaders, but I truly feel that he sets
the true example of living his own teachings, by loving them with true intent
and, most of all, real action. He respected other faiths so much,
that other leaders returned their genuine respects for him. Not all
of the LDS prophets could claim that.
I will always remeber when President Hinkley read in general confrence" Have not
I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be
thou dismayed for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." out
of Joshua 1:9 and he said we never have reason to be discouraged I felt like he
was talking to me and I sensed some of what he felt, because he was feeling
discouraged at the end of a hard day but after pondering and praying he felt
different, couragous. thank you.
The burden of running God's true Church here on Earth has finally been lifted
off President Hinckley's blessed shoulders. To be reunited with Marjorie is a
wonderful thing for the Prophet. President Hinckley has been the Prophet since
before I was born. I was beginning to believe he would live forever.
We Thank thee oh God for a Prophet to guide us in these later days!! I will
forever remember the feeling that came over me as President Hinckley entered the
same room I was in..oh what a Prophet of God he truly is! I am so thankful to
have this gospel and understanding that some day..I too can walk with him, and
talk with him. We are so blessed to KNOW this!! My thoughts and prayers are with
the Hinckley Family, may they find comfort in the loss of our so deeply loved,
dedicated servant of our Lord.
Surely we will all miss him. He finally can be living with his lovely wife now.
Just want to share the poem :Do not stand at my grave and weep;I am
not there, i do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow.I am the
diamond glints on snow.I am the sunlight on ripened grain.I am the
gentle autumn rain.When you awaken in the morning's hush,Of quiet
birds in circled flight.I am the soft stars that shine at night.Do
not stand at my grave and cry;I am not there, i did not die.
What a great example and a faithful, humble servant of the Lord! I loved your
sense of humor and your positive outlook. You led the Church so well and did so
well connecting with the media. I'm sure you are having a joyous reunion with
your wife and loved ones. You will be sorely missed, but Paradise has gained a
spiritual giant. Thank you, thank you, President Hinckley.
WE LOVED YOU TILL WE MEET AGAIN!
All day I have been reflecting on the impact and influence President Hinckley
has had on my life. I know that he was a prophet of God. He will be dearly
missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the Hinckley family at this time.
God be with you till we meet again dear... you will be deeply missed.
WE THANK THE O GOD FOR A PROPHET! What an amazing man, life and Prophet. I am
gratedul to have been born in this time to have known such a wonderful man,
Prophet, Seer and Revelator! Thank you Father in Heaven for him! What a day of
rejoicing in Heaven! He will be missed, the church will go on and we are a
better people because of his leadership!
I can't put into words how I feel about President Hinckley, but I truly love him
and will always have a place for him in my heart. I will never forget him and am
excited to see him again.
Hoping to see you reach 100. Miss you!
Imagine the reunion! His sweetheart and all the previous Prophets! And of
course our Savior saying "Well done my faithful servant". His stewardship was
amazing. Such an example to all of us of untiring service and dedication. How
we love him!
We admire our Prophet and Leader Gordon B. Hinckley. He is truly a remarkablew
man. We will miss him that is for sure. His life will be remembered for years
to come. Thanks for the example you set for our Family to follow. we thank you
for the service you rendered for the church. We will always remember His
wonderful sense of humor. To the Hinckley Family our prayers are with you at
this time of loss of your Father. May god be with you always. Keep him in your
what a great man and example. he touched the lives of so many throughout the
world and will forever continue to do so. he will be greatly missed. we love you
I will always remember how firm and steadfast he was in doing what's right. He
never wavered from what he knew to be right. I loved his simple truths such as;
be a little kinder, and stand a little taller. What a great example! He will be
He that receiveth a prophet receiveth a prophet's reward. Pres Hinckley would be
the first to admit that his strength was from the Lord. This is the Lord's
church it is not Pres Hinckley's church just as Harold B. Lee said this same
thing and each time a Prophet (1 of the 15) has passed away it felt as though a
giant Redwood had fallen. This is the example they share as they draw on the
Lord's strength to magnify them in their office as each of us are to do in our
individual assignments. Be assured the 16th prophet will be just as powerful in
influence! That he is well prepared and will soon bless the church and the world
in a unique way never felt before as each prophet of the Lord has done
previously. This is the testimony of this work and the love we all have for the
prophet and attests to the power of the spirit of the Lord in our lives. That is
what is remarkable about this marvelous work and a wonder as it reflects so well
the spirit of Jesus Christ--the Greatest of all!
The world lost a great person yesterday. Thank you for everything
President Hinckley.God bless.
When I was young I had the opertuneity to meet President Hinkly for Halloween
evening at his home. Me invited me and my 2 brothers and my dad for Oreos and
Milk it was a great expierince meeting him. I am devistated that he died but he
will always bring back memories when you here the sentence "Church of Jesus
Christ of Later Day Saints.
In a world so short of positive examples, President Hinckley stood as a
spiritual giant. A living, real life hero who didn't need super powers. His
strength came from his faith and his good works. Regardless of a person's
religious convictions his example was one anyone could look up to, he was a man
of integrity, a man of compassion for others, a man with leadership qualities,
who was humble, a man who could laugh at himself and who made others around him
feel comfortable. A man who truly loved all as his brothers and sisters
regardless of color or culture. It is not good-bye only until we meet again.
Though we are grieving the loss of this wonderful man, we too are rejoicing that
through your example there are still people in this darkened world we can look
up to; and from your example other men of integrity will grow. We may shed a
tear or two, but remember the joy on the other side of the veil of his coming
home. Thank you President Hinckley for your service to mankind. We love you.
As our choir sings: steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus.
Praise to the man, Gordon B. Hinckley. We love you and miss you.
We will miss him so much! He was a great man and very caring. He will be missed
WE LOVE YOU PRESIDENT HINCKLEY!!!!!!We will miss you, but know we will see
you again!We are certain there was a great reunion in heaven with all of
your loved ones. They are now lucky to have you again.
Gordon B. Hinckley was a great Prophet and I will miss him
i can't believe he died!i cried my eyes out last night it was so shocking and
President Hinckley was truly a remarkable man. May you rest in peace in the arms
of your beloved eternal companion. We will miss you. We extend our love and
prayers to his family.
a living "prophet" who was actually a church bureaucrat. Mormons
are indeed a weird people.
We thank thee our Great God for our wonderful Prophet. He has been a blessing
to each and everyone of us and will be missed. But we know that the work will
continue on and we must continue on in President Hinckley's footsteps. He was a
man of honor, a man of virtue, a man of truth, a man of God. Let us all press
forward with a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all his
children. Let us continue the work the President Gordon B Hinckley has set for
us for it is God's work. We join with the rest of the world in thanking God for
President Gordon B. Hinckley. Yours in Christ...
As an 18 year old, I attended General Conference when President Hinkley was
first sustained as a General Authority. I was later present when he was
sustained as the church Prophet and President. I have followed him through his
years as a General Authority and marveled at how he brought us all closer to the
Lord through his loving example and steady message. I know that I am a better
person because of him. We miss you President Hinkley.
My wife and I feel the same as you all. We will miss President Hinckley but we
know he is very happy to be with his Majorie. what a great example! I would
recommend reading one of his most influential books "Standing for Something."
Amazing bok written by an amazing man, a inspiring leader and a good friend.
Another Prophet gone but not forgotten. Our love and prayers go out to the
My husband and I cried when we heard the news and then we rejoiced for President
Hinckley, his mission on earth is complete. He was such an example as to how we
need to live our lives and we are greatful and blessed to have had such a great
and beloved Prophet. Our prayers are with the Hinckley family. We will miss
you President Hinkley.
Although I didn't personally know President Hinckley, I feel as if I've lost a
loving friend. I will especially miss his refreshing sense of humor and his
unquenchable testimony of God's latter-day work.
President Hinckley, We love you and will miss you! I had the opportunity once
to be in the same room with you and will never forget the way your spirit
touched me. Thank you for doing so much good for this world. Rest in peace.
God bless you president Hinckley and your family. You has blessed the lives of
millions. We'll miss you President Hinckley, We will forever be grateful for
you. Thank you for loving us. you will always be remembered for your dedicated
service in the Lord's kingdom on earth. We love you and are so blessed to have
been taught by such a dear Prophet of God. We Thank Thee O God For A Prophet.
God be with you 'till we meet again.
What a difference one man can make in this world! Truly he was a prophet of
God. What a blessing he was to us all. We will miss him dearly. May the Lord
be with President Monson and the Quorum of the Twelve.
hearing about this, someone can't not be sad and dissapointed. but we need to
stop being selfish and be happy that he is now with his wife that he missed
What an awesome and influential man he was. He lived a long and righteous life,
and while we mourn his loss we celebrate his sweet return home.
WE all love president hinckley, and will miss him very much!
We love the prophet. He will be greatly missed.
YOu meant so much to me I have fallen from the church along time ago but the
impact you have made in my life Honestly meant more to me then any treasure I
wrote him a letter once and sent it with my Friend who was meeting him through
make a wish foundation it was a 3 page letter Talking to him about all the
things i was struggling with Telling him about my Family Bearing my testimony
Pooring my Heart to him He responded By Adressing it in General Confernce that
same year NOt missing one point in my letter It meant more to me then anything
any one has done to me in my life ive since fallen from the church but still
belief it to be true but i cant live up to the standards But he held a part of
my heart ever since then i cried for 2 hours today when i heard it and the tears
havent stoped flowing i shall miss hearing your jokes and inspritional words.
The impact you make on one person can affect more then a million people so make
it a good one. I know you did
I personally never had the opportunity to meet President Hinckley but I have
seen him on television on several occasions and felt of the Holy Ghost penetrate
through him. Now he is with his beloved Marjorie. I can just picture Sister
Hinckley saying something like "What took you so long?" May he and his family be
blessed forever more.
We all love president Hinckley and will miss him very much!
May we all live to make President Hinckley Proud of us. Remember to Be
Grateful, Be Smart, Be true, Be Prayerful, Be humble and to be clean. I will do
my best President. Carry On
Yes wonderful President Gordon Hinckey is very speech during general confence.
Very mostly He is good speech everything and his testomiry mostly. I remember
learning from pres. hinckey greater wonder. We love President Hinckey. I never
forget watch during general conference meeting. My kids see it about gospel and
etc. We miss him very much most time his life very strong and faithfully.
President Hinckley has shown us how we can
The life he lived was incredible. To me, he died with his boots on, on a Sunday,
and even one last church visit. He had a long, healthy life, and a calling
fulfilled in it's fullest. From the state of Alaska, and from the bottom
of my heart . . . Thank you President Hinckley, my prophet, seer, revelator, and
friend.-Eric WatsonAnchorage, Alaska
I loved President Hinkley so dearly. He was such an example to me. His kindness,
gentleness...I loved him. I'm always going to miss him.
We love you, pr. Hinckley,our dear prophet.You have taught us how to be
loving, kind and how to stand a little taller. Thank you for your example.You'll be forever in our hearts.Daniela, Paolo, Stefania, Claudia and
Alessio Battezzato.Westford, MaLowell WardNashua, NH Stake
We loved you President Hinckley. We'll miss you.
The man gave hope to the hopeless through the Perpetual Education Fund.The man gave light to a darkened world through the addition of over 70 new
temples.The man walked and talked with God.I could
listen to him talk all day long...We Thank Thee O God For A
lo recordaremos con amor en nuestros corazones
Pres. Hinckley is a prophet and an inspirational leader and man. We, like many
others, believe that he was chosen and prepared before he was born for his
duties and he fulfilled them marvelously. We believe that his sentiments would
be to "Carry on and go forward in faith' just as he exemplified throughout his
wonderful life.L&KBrisbane. Australia
WAY TO BE! Pres. Hinkley. Lots of Love!
We will miss the twinkle in the eyes, the cute little smite, the charm of this
very special man. But most of all we will miss his example of wisdom, his
thoughtfulness, his devotion to his family, the church and the Savior. How
blessed we have been to have lived under his tutelage. Rest well, dear friend,
until we meet again.
Only fond memories abound as I have pondered the passing of such a great yet
humble disciple of Jesus Christ. Just as he taught us, President Gordon B.
Hinckley lived his life without regrets. In so many ways he simply forgot
himself and went to work - ever true to the direct counsel given him as a young
missionary by his father. What a reunion he is having beyond this veil! Thank
you, President Hinckley for your shining example, your great legacy of faith.
We loved our prophet - his love, his humor, his kindness, his goodness. We
will miss him very much.
He was the Prophet to lead us into the the 21st Century. He trained us, led us,
encouraged us, and he finally he loved us. Gordon B left us prepared to take the
next steps without him. He left the church better then he found it
As Jesus said.... "if ye love me, keep my commandments".There's no
better way to show your love for President Hinckley than to do what he asked.Get out and stay out of debt. Control your temper. Be kind to EVERYONE
around you, regardless of ANY other considerations that might otherwise prevent
you from doing so. Be especially good to your spouse and children. Attend the
temple regularly. Be a little better every day.And don't drive like
a maniac :)That's the best way to honor the memory of this amazing
man. I can't imagine him wanting anything else.
President Hinckleys term as Prophet, seer and revelator only confirms that the
Lord has truly reserved the brightest and noblest of his spirit children for
this, the last dispensation. His vigor and zest for living and proclaiming the
gospel has encouraged me personally to live righteously in these wicked and
perilous times when the devil is working double-time to destroy the Lords Work.
His teachings have brought my family closer and united in working towards a
common goal. His writings will always be present on our shelves, bedsides and in
My family and I were tremendously blessed by the life and example of this man.
We Thank Thee of God for a Prophet.
Even though I'm not LDS, I had a lot of respect for President Hinkley and my
prayers are with those who loved him.
President Hinckley made a great impact on my life. I have hanging on my wall a
few paragraphs of the closing remarks he gave at the October General Conference
in 2000 and I have tried to put what he said then into practice ever since. I
will remember him as the great Temple builder of the Church. He helped bring
the Church out of obscurity. The Church will keep growing and will get stronger
still because President Hinckley was at the helm.
I loved him so much he was like a father to me
As a fairly new convert,I feel blessed to have become a member during Pres.
Hinkley's presidency. He was and is a thoughtful,funny,inspirational and
extremely caring individual who surely has gone on to a much larger leadership
role on the other side. I thank you President Hinkley for your outstanding
service and your wonderful character and modeling. May the love of heaven
embrace you now...Amen
I became a member of the Church prior to President Hinckley becoming the
Prophet, but I always felt he was the first one I personally knew, seeing him in
during an 1996 Area Youth Conference in San Diego Ca., held in a cultural hall
gym. It was the first time and only time I had a chance to sing " We Thank Thee
O God For A Prophet" in his presence. That and the meeting will always mean a
lot. And like every active member and hopefully some inactive and non-members,
he leaves a memorable moment for us all, that might strengthen our resolve to
appreciate that we were well cared for by his stewardship. The passing of a
President of the Church never comes easy, but if President Monson is called to
lead, the benefit of s having him in the Presidency is someone who we know so
very well, and I've felt for years will grant a exceptionally smooth transition
from President Hinckley's inspired vision to what will be asked of President
Well done thou good and faithful servant. How great is thy reward for enduring
to the end. And, how great is the reunion with thy eternal companion. May we
ALL learn from such a valiant servant of our Heavenly Father. My condolences to
He was such a Christlike man, truly His mouthpiece here on earth. The church
will continue on, but we will miss him dearly.
President Hinckley was the best thing that we had as a person and Prophet. We'll
remember him as a good person. amen
He was a great blessing to us all and helped many people
The Legand is that The Island Crys when it loses someone she loves. It Rained
last night and the Mountain Winds where strong. We will miss him in Hawaii. He
was/is an outstanding example. He was a Master at doing the Masters Work. I am a
much better person for having listened to him and having watched him. He proved
to me that Application Of Your Faith Can Change Your Life. My Ohana and I will
miss him. Mahalo Good and Faithful Servent. Aloha Oi.
I'm so proud to see all of President Hinckley's well wishers. It makes such a
sad moment seem less painful to see all of the love out there for this wonderful
I'll miss you President Hinckley. You did your best and that was more than
enough to inspire people to live better lives and be better Christians. I
appreciate all the hard work you did and I know that you were called of God and
that you were truly inspired. Thanks doesn't cut it but it is the best I can
offer. Thank you. My prayers are with your family.
ALL THE MEMBERS IN MY WARD PRAY FOR THE HINCKLEY FAMILY, WE LOST A GREAT MAN AND
PROPHET ,WE THANK THEE O GOD FOR OUR PROPHET. ... CONDOLENCES TO ALL THE
CHURCH. TECAMAC MEXICO STAKE.
Pres. Hinckley attacked the most pressing issues of our day pornography, spousal
abuse, racism, and scripture study to name a few. I am a strong man, husband,
and father due his direction as a prophet. Go Forward !! Stand
Taller !! Lengthen your Stride !! Pres. Hinckley will be miss.SF,Utah
Upon learning of President Hinckley's passing, I said a prayer with my little
three-year-old daughter-a brand new Sunbeam. We gave thanks for living during
his lifetime and having been taught at his knee. I have felt comfort all day
long and a sense of calm and confidence. Thank you President Hinckley for your
My prayers are with the Hinckley family, but my heart is full of Joy knowing
President Hinckley is reunited with his Sweetheart. He always had an eternal
perspective on everything he did...Thank you dear Prophet.
He was a great man who was loved by many. I will miss him
To all the above...Amen.
PRESIDENT GORDON B.HINCKLEY WAS A GREAT MAN.AND A GREAT PROPHET OF GOD. AND A
GREAT FRIEND TO ME. I WILL MISS YOU. HE WAS THE FIRST PROPHET OF GOD I SAW IN
PERSON. YOU WERE THE BEST PROPHET WHO GAVE THE BEST TALKS TO SINGLE MEMBERS OF
THE CHURCH. I AM A SINGLE MAN MYSELF, AND I WILL BE FOREVER GREATFUL FOR HIS
TALKS I WATCHED HIM GIVE. I WILL ALWAYS READ HIS BOOKS AND TALKS. HE TEACHED ME
A LOT ABOUT THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, AND I LOVE HIM FOR TEACHING ME. HE IS WITH MY
MOM NOW IN HEAVEN. GOD BLESS YOU. PRESIDENT HINCKLEY. YOU WILL BE MISSED.
I offer my condolences to President Hinckley's family. He will surely be
missed. He had an enormous impact on the growth of the Church, both
spiritually, and in membership. I can imagine the Lord personally telling
President Hinckley, "Well done thou beloved and faithful servant in whom I am
LO RECORDAREMOS CON MUCHO AMOR SIEMPRE.Y ALGUN DIA LO VEREMOS DE NUEVO
The world will be a better place when men love their spouses, teach their
children, serve their neighbors, and honor their God in the same manner as
Gordon B. Hinckley. We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet.
President Gordon B Hinckley will be missed by many. He was an Awsome man that
touched many hearts. Those that are memebers of the church and those that are
not. We as members of the church know what a blessing it is to have a man here
on earth that is worthy to lead and guide the Lord's people. His sprit was so
stong and loving and we thank him for that. Our love and prayers go out to his
family and friends.
What a blessing is to know who president Hinckley was... a living prophet!
Members of church in Mxico and all around the world will miss him. I'm sure he
will be thinking and saying: God be with you 'til we meet again! Church is true,
priesthood is on earth, God lives and we are his children. Thank you President
for your courage, faith and example.
What a man! What a prophet! Along with Sister Hinckley, I'm sure President
Hinckley was greeted by Nephi, Moroni and the Prophet Joseph Smith and offered
hearty congratulations for his stewardship. Someone commented, "The Church
won't be the same without him." The Church will be fine, but General Conference
will never be the same for me. I love this prophet with all my heart. He
always struck a chord in my spirit. I am happy for him and his reuniting with
Sister Hinckley but sad for myself and all those who will miss him too. My
prayers are with his family, President Monson, President Eyring and the rest of
the Brethren who worked with him and knew him and loved him well. Hail to the
I will miss his smile and positive attitude, that he expressed to everyone. I
has been enlightening to be under his influence. We must continue to have
tolerence and understanding for everyone, in doing this we will truely follow
the Prophets admonition to "Become More Christ Like".
God bless the Hinkly family. Our thoughts, and hearts go out to you. God bless
the prophet of God. We miss him.
We thank thee oh God for this great Prophet! We will miss you and will always
remember your great example. We Love You and Thanks!
El Presidente Hinckley era un hombre muy bueno. Y las cosas que el hizo para los
miembros y tambien los que no eran miembros van a ser conocido para la
eternidad. Gracias por todo para Hinckley y todos que ayudaron.
President Hinckley was truly an inspiration to all of us. Not many people are as
dedicated these days with their work as he was with his. Through the
improvements he has made in the Church's functionings and with a more media
friendly attitude,a more positive postion towaards the Church can be felt in the
world today. Everywhere you look now you can see billboards stating The Truth
Restored.May he now join with his loving wife forever.
I am so glad this great man lived, and lead the Church of Jesus Christ, for as
long as he did. He is truely a prophet of God. He can now join his sweet wife
and for that I am happy. He will miss the Rexsburg Temple dedication, and that
one he wanted to do and that is sad. However, there are over 120 temples
operating today thanks to Gordon B. Hinckley, a man of God! We love you! Return
and report the great work of your life!
I feel like I have loss a great friend. he was the only one I can remember from
my youth. he will truly be missed.
Gordon B. Hinckley was a valiant spirit in the pre-existence and in this life.
He was a true servant of the Lord. He taught and lived the 6 be's. 1. Be grateful. 2. Be smart. 3. Be clean. 4. Be true. 5. Be humble. 6. Be prayerfulI never had the privilege to
shake his hand but I got to see him from far away at the Jubilee Celebration in
S A Tx. I appreciated the advice he always gave the youth. I love him and will
MISS him a lot but I believe he's with his eternal companion and he's happy
there. May the Lord bless his family in this time of sadness. Is my prayer in
Jesus Name Amen.The Aaron and Torres Family in New Braunfels TX
I will miss this great president soooo much. he was an amazing leader. This was
a HUGE loss to the church. He was such a good leader, and example. :)
I am greatful for my testimony that President Hinckley was a prophet of God. I
will miss him.
Pres. Hinckley's death brought a few moments of solitude and contemplation to me
last night. I will miss his counsel. It caught me by surprise and made me
think of how often we don't realize our love for people until they have passed
away. He has helped to shape who I am, not by force or guilt, but by truly
being a disciple of Christ.
Gordon Bitner Hinckley in my opinion was one of the greatest phrophets along
with Joseph Smith. He will be sorely missed.
He was our prophet, and our leader!!! We will all miss him!!!! But he is in a
good place.. in heaven wih his wife and Heavenly Father!!!!! Go Tanner, Steve,
and Mark you 3 boys wore you sunday clothes in rememberance of our prophet!!!!!
WOO HOO!!! We all love you President Hinckley!
Gordon missed his wife dearly for almost 4 years. During this time, his hurt had
never waned, as he missed her to no end. He even indicated that the
loneliness gnaws into the sould incessantly. We never knew the many
tears he had shed over the last 4 years, and I believe that we shouldn't be
selfish, as President Hinckley just wanted to be with his dear wife again. Now they're together again, and that's all that matters. He is a human
being after all, with feelings as tender as any man with a big heart.
Sacramento California Temple Celebration...President Hinckley walked out, raised
his cane, and 5,000 youth plus thousands at ARCO arena stood and raised their
voices in shouts of joy at seeing their beloved prophet. We will never forget
what that felt like as it was the first time we were in the same room as
President Hinckley! (Sister Clark cried like a baby) Incredible Prophet,
incredible man, he will be missed in our home. We love you President Hinckley.
Our prayers are with his family.
We Thank You O God For A Prophet... President Hinkley thanks for your Love and
Friendship you will be greatly miss by the people of the Fiji Islands here and
abroad.Goodbye President until we meet again. Ni qai lai vakacegu na Turaga na
Parofita.Moce toka mada vakalailai.
When I first heard the news i thought it was a lie. I never thought it would
ever happen. He was a wonderful man who changed many lives. He will be hard to
replace, but I find comfort in the fact that God knows what he is doing and will
replace him with a man just as wonderful, loving, and serving. May we always
remember his legacy and instead of mourning his death, we should celebrate his
life and always following his teachings and strive to return to are father in
heaven and meet with each of the prophets again.
What a great inspiration and example. Great leaders only come along every now
and then. He will be missed. I can't help but think of the wonderful reunion
with his wife, his dear friend Elder Faust, and his parents and other relatives.
These are happy times beyond the veil.
The President Hincley he was an inspiration for the lds members, the wonderful
man and de example for the humanity the love demostrate for all his the more
great dedication for de human generation thanks for you example
I will miss President Hinckley, he became Prophet, Seer & Revelator just a
couple months after I joined the church. I loved his words of wisdom, candor and
care of others, it is and was infectious. I hope we all will stand a little
taller, be a little kinder, and love a little easier, as he wanted us to always.
I cannot think of a more Christ Like Man than this man. I am glad he is with his
sweetheart once again united. He will be missed, but the work in which he was
engaged here on the earth will roll forth to fill the world, as he prophesied,
and as those before him did as well. May God Bless Him Always.
May President Hinckley's humor, positive attitude, and example live forever.
President Monson will also be the same kind of prophet if it so be. What a
great speaker and devoted man he is.
I myself will greatly miss our beloved World Leader President Gordon B. Hinkley.
He was indeed a great example to everyone to follow and for years to come. I
will greatly love and miss you. May you rest in peace until we all meet beyond.
Ditto on Kevin's comments. They are expressed very well.
We thank thee of God for a Prophet...he was an amazing example and a genius
disciple of God. He still makes me smile.
Pres.Hinckley has done a powerful impact in my life and my family. We love him
very much.Thank you Pres.Hinckley for all you had done to me and my family and
to the whole world.Im just happy to know that you will be with your loved
ones,specially Sis Hinckley.I thought that Pres.Hinckley can visit us again in
the Philippines to celebrate w/ us for the Jobillee year 2011.He was the one who
opened and dedicated our country for missionary work almost 50 yrs ago.Now,many
had been blessed by his efforts.The phils.now has 600thousand members and is
continuing to grow.Thank you Pres.Hinckley,I know that you will never be
forgotten and you will always be in the hearts of every Filipino Latter Day
Saint.I had met you while I was serving in the fulltime mission more than 22 yrs
ago and hope to meet you again in the next life.President Hinckley is trully a
Prophet of God.
Thaddeus Sorronda Philippines
Everyone will miss this great, kind, wonderful man!
What a great example of a human being, family man and friend to all. Our dear
prophet will be deeply missed. Anson
I'm inspired by this tremendous legacy. He was a man of God and we should all
be grateful to have known any part of this true Christians life.
What a well researched and well written article! This is the best article I've
read on him since his passing. Like everyone else, I've been
positively affected by President Hinckley, and while I'm glad he and his beloved
wife are reunited, I'll miss him as well.
I'm deeply saddened by the passing of our dear Prophet, but happy he is now with
his sweetheart. I'm also very thankful that we got to see and hear from our
dear Prophet at our Southern California Stake Conference via satellite
transmission on Sunday, January 13. Beautiful parting words to remember him by.
He was and is a remarkable human being. God Bless the Hinckley family.
What bittersweet emotions this stirs up in our hearts. President Hinckley has
been called home and is rejoined with his eternal companion. We will miss him
so much, but will forever be affected by his great legacy. Our sincere
condolences go out to his wonderful family.
I say in honor of President Hinckley they should re-name the Conference Center
in Salt Lake where they hold General Conference and other events. The new name?
Maybe: The Hinckley Conference Center.Anyone else like this idea?
Someone should suggest it to the Church officials, I might soon. The more
people that suggest it, the better chance of it happening.
We are all very sad at the passing of our beloved prophet, President Hinckley.
We loved him and will miss his warmth and witty sense of humor. The last few
years have been tough on him without his dear sweet Marjorie. Never have we
seen such devotion and love before. What a blessing it was to be present for the
last session of conference this past October and he see him. We'll never forget
this opportunity. Our prayers go out to his family at this difficult time. As
hard as it is for us in the church to lose our prophet, the Hinckley family lost
their Dad. I'm sure they are smiling thinking about that reunion between their
parents. Thank you Hinckley family for sharing him with us all these many
years. We will miss you and we love you! ! ! The Terry Rasch Family from
President Hinckley was an amazing prophet! Everytime I listen to him speak I
feel the spirit. We will always remember him. What a great example he was to us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and we will be praying for your family. I
love you President Hinckley!!
I was at a loss upon hearing the news. My condolences to the Hinckley family.
President Hinckley was truly a Prophet of God! I will always remember the time
he came to visit the Navajo Nation in Window Rock, AZ. Thank you President
Hinckley for your love, teachings, example and leadership. You will truly me
missed, but glad that you are reunited with your beloved wife, Marjorie. "WE THANK THEE O GOD FOR A PROPHET."
What a legacy you have left us - you will be missed greatly however know we
shall be in your presence again. Thank you for your love and direction and the
example you were of living joyfully.
Such wonderful testimonies...of such a great man...He loved us and we knew
it...He loved the Lord, and his Gospel and we knew that as well.We
loved him. He will be missed but only for a short while.How blessed
we all were to share in this era with him.How grateful we are for the
knowlege that he again shares his noble spirit with his sweetheart....Renetta Frederick, Monmouth Oregon
A Terra perdeu temporariamente um grande lder, e o Reino dos Ces ganharam um.
Nenhum contemporneo meu demonstrou mais amor que Pres. Hinckley. Ele ensinou-me
isso. Kleber Martin
how sad, how sad! the only good thing is that he can see his wife and enjoyher
company!!! he is in a better place!!!
How blessed we were to know a true disciple of Christ who endured so well doing
so much good -- not unlike his Master. We will continue to love him and strive
to follow his near perfect example.
Bitter-Sweet News... He was a man for our times and will be deeply missed. The
good news is of coarse he is with his angel wife again and he has earned his
reward. The bad news is, it is our lose. Thank heaven (literially) that the
next prophet won't miss a beat in this work. Only if our goverment had such a
seamless transition. Our prayers are with Elder Monson and the Hinckley family.
Our Family will greatly miss you but have great memories of what you have taught
us. It has been wonderful to be alive at this time and know you and other
prophets who have passed. You are certianly one of the last who could tell so
much about the churches struggles and growth over the last 97 years. I HOPE AND
PRAY MANY WILL COME OUT OF THE WOOD WORK BACK TO THE CHURCH BECAUSE OF YOUR
A true example of enduring to the end! God bless President Hinckley
Sorry.Not because he's anything special in my life, but recently someone died
who was close to me too.
THIS IS LIKE OUR POPE...WHAT A WONDERFUL MAN, OUR PROPHET...WE ARE SO HONORED TO
HAVE HAD SUCH A HUMBLE,GREAT MAN OF INTERGRITY AND CHARACTER LEAD THE CHURCH...I
AM SO HAPPY THAT HE IS NOW REUNITED WITH HIS BELOVED WIFE...IT'S TOO BAD THE
WORLD CAN'T APPRECIATE THE TREMENDOUS GOODNESS OF THIS WONDERFUL MAN!
What a great man and though we are sad for our loss we rejoice in knowing that
he is with his wife again who he loved so much.
A true example of enduring to the end, I feel a great loss and at the same time
rejoice that he is at last able to rest. What a wonderful leader!
President Hinckley and his wife Marjorie were examples of service in every way.
It reminds you of the difference one can make when you turn your life over to
God. Thank you to the Hinckley family for their sacrifice through sharing their
parents and granparents with us and the rest of the world.
I will miss him a lot.

As spokesperson for Christian Science in Utah, we extend our prayers of comfort
to the LDS Church membership and especially the family of President Gordon B.
Hinckley. I was privileged to be in the audience to hear his recent speech at
the re-dedication of the State Capitol. His full life was a fine example of
serving one's church with true vigor.Elizabeth Beall-Christian

What a sad news!President Hinckley is the the greatest prophet i have known

my own family.I will missed his talks on conferences..i love to hear his voice

Hinckley,we will surely missed his great example all over the world..your
love,faith,dedication,gratitude and smile to everybody.I knoe he is with her
loving wife now and they will be happy together.Condolences to Hinckley family.
I wondered why my first reaction to the news of President Hinckley's death was
tears. But on reflection, I realize they were tears of joy for him, for his
dear wife, and for the wonderful reception he would be at that time, receiving
from our Savior, our Father, from Joseph Smith, and from President Hinckley's
extended family, as well as prophets who have succeeded him. It is overwhelming
to realize what is happening there and what it all means. I am grateful for the
years of his service I've known of him. He has been an inspiration to me in so
many ways. Whenever aging seems hard, all I've had to do was think of him and
have new courage.
I am so sad, at our great loss,I Loved Pres. Hinckley. He is now happy with
those who went before him!!!
I know that Gordon B. Hinckley was truly a prophet called from God, and that he
is back living with Father in Heaven now, and enjoying every minute of it. I'm
thankful for the time we got to have him, and for the knowledge that we will one
day be able to walk with him again. Thank you, God, for sending us such and
extraordinary man to guide our church.
We think that President Hinckley was a great prophet. We are going to miss him.
We are glad that he can be back with his wife. We are going to try to follow
his counsel and be more like him. Our prayers go out to his family and all of
us who loved him. Praise to the man!!!
You were an amazing prophet, our prayers are with you and your family, and we
love you... The halversen family
Dear Pres. Hinckley, say hi to your wife for us all. Thank you for your years of
service. Till we meet again. With Love, Craig
S que el Presidente Hinckley es un Profeta de Dios, un hombre maravilloso. l ha
bendecido mi vida y la de mi familia con su ejemplo, su obra, su amor y sus
hermosas e inspiradas palabras. Lo vamos a extraar... pero el saber que,
nuestro Profeta, se ha reencontrado con su amada esposa, a quien tanto l
extraaba, me trae felicidad y esperanza en mi vida.
Today my school honored Pres. Hinckley by wearing church clothes. Even though
we wore church clothes we still need to "wear" the Spirit with us everyday.
Pres. Hinckley taught us to be Christlike to others and I hope that we will do
as he directs. Thank you Pres. Hinckley!!!
I love President Hinckley and will miss him very much but I am so grateful for
the wonderful example and leader he was for the church! What an amazing, kind
and humble servant of the Lord! He is with his dream girl Marjorie once again!
We will remember his optimism and humor. He did so much for the advancement of
the CHurch and the Gospel. Thank you to his family for sharing your dear father
with us as our Prophet. Well done Pres. Hinkley. See you on the other side!
Thanks President Hinckley for all your teachings, We love you very much and we
are so greatful for your great example, love, charity and kindness. You are
going to be missed. You were a truly example of Jesus Christ. "Till we meet
I and my family have some much enjoyed Pres. Hinckley's leadership; we will miss
The world loses a Prophet but his family loses a Father, grandfather and great
grandfather. May the spirit bring to them great comfort and solace as the world
mourns with them.
it was during presidentHinckley's time that I was called as an area authority
seventy. I remember visiting him in his office a very rare opportunityHe
rose from his seat to receive me and I was so humbled. What a humble man I said
to myself and I there and then, decided to follow his footsteps to become humble
tooI will forever remember him as he granted me the rare opportunity to
take a picture with him and Elder Packer which hangs in our hall my family
and I will forever cherish that forever.may his soul rest in perfect peace
We love you. You were a great man-our beloved prophet. You made an impact on
each of our lives. We will miss seeing you on t.v. at general conferences.
Our children grew up loving President Hinckley. We love him and are grateful
for the blessings of a living prophet who has truly inspired and taught us to
follow the Savior. My favorite memories include the humble care he gave
President Benson and the way he carried his cane. Early morning seminary
students in our area had a special lesson about President Hinckley. We will
focus on lessons learned from him in home evening tonight. A non-member friend
expressed her sympathy at his passing. How easy it was to hope he would live to
be 100, and I will miss his wonderful voice and message next Conferance. What a
blessing we have in our church to know we have a prophet who receives direction
from God, and to know that blessing will continue as we sustain our new prophet.
May the Hinckley family be comforted and feel the love the world shares for our
beloved Gordon B. Hinckley. God Bless our Prophet dear, and his wonderful
What a wonderful world it would be if we were all more like Pres. Hinckley! Let
us resolve to more closely follow his example and counsel. We love you and wish
we could witness the joy you are experiencing right now!
President Hinckley was the prophet throughout my entire teenage years and into
young adulthood. Thank you for being such a wonderful example to follow. How I
love you. I can't imagine the beauty of your reunion with your sweet wife.
I grew up with President Hinckley always in the First Quorum, I feel like I know
him personally. I will surely miss him, but am so excited as to what awaits
him. You have left a great mark on this earth. God bless you and your family.
My life has been greatly blessed because of your leadership. Thank you President
Hinckley. We love you and will miss you greatly.
I am deeply saddened by the death of such a great servant of our Lord and
Savior. What an example he has been to me and my family over the years. I am so
blessed as are all of us to have had such an extraordinary leader. I am so
grateful for him and I will miss seeing what he's up to next. I will keep his
family in my prayers.
We love you, President Hinckley. Thank you for everything you have done for the
church and the world. We will miss your sense of humor, hard work, example,
vision, eloquent talks, and boundless energy.We miss you!Well done, thou good and faithful servant.
nuestras condolencias a la Familia Hinckey,
Reading all the wonderful comments have brought tears to my eyes. Pres.
Hinckley was such an inspiration to me to do better in my life. I'm so sorry
that he had to leave us, but I rejoice that he is again with his dear Marjorie
and all the rest of his family. What a joyous reunion that must have been! I
will miss your inspiring words.
We will love our great Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley forever! Love and condolences
to President & Sister Hinckley's family.
We are so grateful for our beloved prophet. We love him and honor him. We are
deeply saddened by his passing and will miss him dearly, but we are strenthened
by his expemplary life and vibrant, immovable testimony of the Lord's work. We
rejoice in the life he lived and the work he will continue to do with the Lord.
He has strengthened our testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints and taught us by word and example how to be ever faithful. He is the
prophet of our youth and we have been blessed as he has served steadfastly in
his calling. We love President Hinckley! May the Lord be with his family.Love,The Higgins Family, Phoenix, Arizona
President Hinckley, the consummate missionary, will be remembered for his love
and concern for all persons world wide and his love for his Heavenly Father. His
examples of commitment, labor, love and humor will long be emulated by the
Latter Day Saints and others who had the opportuity to partake of his wise
counsel. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with the Hinckley family
What a great Honor it is to have a building named after him at BYU That sure
does mean alot to him & his Family, I have had a chance to walk thourgh it when
they dedacated Last year, I think that he was such a great Prophet he taught us
all alot , we will surely miss him, alot
We love you and are thankful for your many years of service on our behalf. What
a great man of God and a wonderful example. May the lord bless his family and
our other church leaders at this time.
Through the past two years of struggling with an addiction to prescription
drugs, my husband always found hope in President Hinckley saying, "Just do your
best." So many times he felt worthless and lost, wanting to give up on himself,
but because of President Hinckley's unconditional love and encouragement to
"just do your best," he has continued in the battle and forged ahead through the
bright days and the dark ones. Thank you for your kind heart and bright spirit.
You will be missed.
Thanks for everything, you will be missed greatly

He interviewed me while on my mission, and I've always held him in my heart and
a particularly gentle person who made the sincerest effort to make direct
contact with individuals who came his way. I loved the man and will sorely miss
Your words and life has given me the great example, how to live and to be a
better person. Thank you for everything you have done. You will be missed.
Thank you President Hinckley for being the perfect example to follow. Thank you
for your love to the Samoan Saints when our first temple was burnt down. You
will still be remembered in our hearts. Manuia le malaga.....
We thank thee oh god for our prophet to guide us in these latter days! Pres
Hinkley will be missed but his legacy will go on!
We give thanks for his service, his love, his wit, and his amazing work. We
loved him as if a member of our family! Well done, thou good and faithful
servant, President Hinckley.
Good bye for now but not for good. I as so will many others will miss President
Hinckley. What an inspiration he was. He had an incredible head on his shoulders
and was a great leader with a great wit. I know he will be welcomed to the other
side with arms open from millions.
The older I get the more I treasure the gift of the eternal family. My first
reaction was what a glorious reunion he had with his precious wife....and how I
wished I was there to document it. The glorious message of the gospel doesn't
get any better than knowing that families CAN be an eternal unit, and that God
lives and loves us. Now we have to turn to and harken to a NEW and LIVING
prophet and give him the loyalty we gave to Pres. Hinkley. HURRAH FOR ISRAEL!
Sad to see him gone. At the same time, I'm so happy for him to be able to be
with his wife again.
Sadness on Earth, great joy & happiness for the wonderful reunion in Heaven!
Thank the Lord for the time we had with Pres. Hinckley - now he's moved on to
other work. Thank you for your time with us Pres. Hinckley! Thank you, thank
you, thank you.
It was a blow to hear of our prophet's death. Tammy and I have made sure that
our family has had his teachings firmly planted in it's heart. We will all miss
President Hinckley and wish our blessings of comfort for his family. "We thank
thee o God for Gordon B. Hinckley"...
thanks for helping me! as one of your last ones needing help! thank you with all
Oh how my heartaches in losing President Hinckley even though he was 97 years I
was hoping he would live long enough to see both of the new Temples in the Salt
Lake area dedicated. He reminds me of my father (who passed away this last
June). They both had a great sence of humor and both talked with their hands and
so Christ-like. Knowing he is with the Lord and his Savior as well as his dear
wife again makes it easier to accept. What a great leader of the Church and all
that he did. Thank you President Hinckley.
WE LOVE THEE OH GOD FOR OUR PROPHET!!!! I will greatly miss President Hinckley
so much. He has taught me so much and I will always remember all of it. He was a
special man and a great leader to us all. I know he is happy now reuniting with
his beloved wife. God Bless His Family!!!! WE loved yall and yall are in my
prayers daily!!!! This man did so much for so many people and touched so many
lives he is gonna be missed so much. I have cried till my eyes are swollen and
blood shot since I heard about his passing. Bless you President Hincley for what
you did in making a difference in my life. I love you and will miss you very
You will be missed. We heard your words three weeks ago in our stake conference
broadcast and thought you looked weaker, yet you served nobly till the end. What
a great example you are and were. We can imagine the joyous reunion on the other
side. We're sure your greatest fear was to become an invalid and be unable to
serve. God granted your prayers to be useful to the end. We do love you.
Gordon B. Hinckley truely was a prophet of God and I testify of this, he had a
way with words, he knew what people needed in this life, he was a truely humble
servant of God, the armies of God will be rejoicing in heaven. I know if it
wasn't for Gordon Hinckleys hard work then the world would be less righteous.
Thank you for everything Gordon Hinckley a prophet and a friend, yet another
wonderful chapter in the history of God's kingdom on earth.
Happy day, all is well.We will miss our beloved President and
Prophet. We must live our lives in such a manner as to honor his legacy. I will
sustain our new President with love and honor.
I love you, President Hinckley. Thank you for the wonderful example you have
been to me and my family. Thank you for the inspired leadership you have
provided. You will be missed and always remembered.
How we love this man! His example and service will be a beacon to us for the
rest of our lives!
We are thankful for all he has done to increase commitment to the Lord, Jesus
Christ. He will be missed.
Thank you Presiden Hinkley. When ever I heard him speak, he made me feel like I
was worth so much and that I could do anything I wanted. I am so thankful for
his life and his example. If I can even accomplish a fraction of what he did I
will be happy. We will miss him deeply, but I feel at peace in knowing that his
journey is not over. Thank you President Hinkley. We love you.
President Hickley's seemingly endless energy and focus was amazing. His
fantastic accomplishments attest to this, while he worked hard to the end. I
don't know how he did all that he did! His optimism was infectious and
encouraging. His gratitude and support to women was welcomed and uplifting. My
thoughts and condolenses are given to the family. I think they are lucky indeed
to have such a legacy.
I am so sad to hear of the passing of President Gordon B. Hinckley. Having been
inactive for 30 + years , I have become an active member since Dec. 2007 ,
and have since been ordained into the priesthood , and Babtised my three
children , ages 8 - 9 - and 10. I am so grateful for the Gospel, and the
oportunnity to have been an active member since President Hinckley has presided
over the Church. I know President Hinckley is watching over us from the
kingdom of Heaven May he rest in peace. Glen L. Nygren Jr.
As he said of President Howard W. Hunter: "A majestic tree in the forest has
fallen, leaving a place of emptiness. A great and quiet strength has departed
from our midst."He was a man of integrity and light with which he
lived and influenced the world - for this those who knew him or of him loved
him. We revered him as a prophet as we do 14 men before him. Now the mantle of
the prophet falls upon another and we pray that President Monson will be
strengthened.The parting message of our dearly loved prophet,
President Hinckley was always, God be with You 'til we meet again. God be with
the Hinckley family and our church leaders.
Thank you dear Prophet.We will Carry On.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, all those who are mourning, and to
Thomas S. Monson. I am glad that he is with Marjorie again, but I will miss
God bless the Hinckley family. We are all better for his influence.
We mourn with you at this sad, yet happy time. Knowing how Pres. Hinckley will
be missed is so sad, but also knowing that he is with Sis. Hinckley makes us
feel some comfort at this hard time. My 6 year old son asked if we could go to
his grave when summer comes and say goodbye. So sweet! Our hearts go out to you
he was a great prophet - i am converted because of his vision and sharlese and
joseph my brother
Our Dear Prophet we are sorry for your depart and we'll miss you greatly ! But
we are content that you are finally with your eternal companion and those your
loved ones whom were waiting for you ...we'll see you again ,to enjoy your
company ,your kindness ,your love.We love you dearly ! -The Michia Family ,
Ituzaingo III Ward ,Buenos Aires ,Argentina .
The prophet is smiling down on us this very moment. We will miss your presence
and heed your counsel. We love the prophet and the work he has done is
Gordon B., we hardly knew thee. Too soon, too soon.
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!
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.
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.
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! Lucille Laird,
Alderwood 2nd Ward Lynnwood, WA.
What a wonderful prophet and leader. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go
out to his family.
"We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet" We loved him! My hero
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!!
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
What a great man. President Hinkley you brought out the good in us. I am so sad
to hear the passing of this great man. You touched my life in so many ways.
Thank you for your service and love for the members of the church and the world.
I know you are with your sweetheart, and you are in the presence of Jesus and
the Holy Father. God Bless you President Hinkley . With Eternal
What a tremendous example of faith, service and integrity. We feel truly blessed
by his leadership and we are better people because of him.He will be
We love you and will miss you, but are so happy that you are able to rejoin your
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!
Thank you President Hinckley for being a wonderful example and pillar of
strength to us all. We love you and miss you.
Thank you our beloved Prophet. The people of Brasil loves you and we will miss
you forever. God bless your family.
What a great example of love and charity! There is nobody that deserves a rest
as much as he does. We will miss him!
Hard to express my feelings at this time. I so looked forward to seeing and
hearing President Hinckley every Conference. He is such a great example of
enduring to the end. His wit,humor and sincerity was what endeared him to all.
My first thought was great, now he finally gets to be with his dear wife. Thank
you President Hinckley for everything you gave to the world. You will be missed
and loved by many forever.
As I have scrolled through these remarks, I have been gratified to see evidence
of the love and respect that this fine gentleman had inspired, not only among
the members of his faith, but also from several who were not members of the
faith.I was gratified that except for one moronic remark...the
contents of this thread have remained respectful."Goin' home, goin'
homeI'm a goin' home.Quiet-like, some still dayI'm a goin'
home.It's not far, just close byThrough an open door.Work all
done, care laid byGoin' to roam no more.Mother's there 'spectin'
meFather's waitin' too.Lot's of folks gathered there,All the
friends I knew."Welcome home brother.
His soft kind voice resinates deep within my soul; the love which flooded with
every utterance stands as a sweet testimony of the love Pres. Hinkley has for
our Savior, Jesus Christ--Thank you for being mt first president and for
teaching me and many more about the love our Savior has for us all.Til we meet again...
To President Hinckley.I shed a tear for you today!WHAT A POWERFUL EXAMPLE
you were to all, around the world. Have a great reunion with your DREAN GI.RL
What a great and marvelous man. He was my prophet, the head of The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He will be greatly missed. God bless his
family and loved ones and collegues. God bless the Hinckley family.
I can only imagine the joyous reunion of President Hickley and his sweet wife.
I am happy for them though it still brings selfish tears to my eyes to think of
his passing. How blessed my husband and I were to be so close to him at General
Conference and feel of his spirit. We will forever remember him raising his
cane to wave and smiling as he was leaving the stage. I feel like I've lost a
personal friend. I miss you President Hickley...
President Hinckley has been an inspiration in my life and I will miss him
greatly. However, I am so thankful for the the lessons he taught me and my
family. Ultimately, it brings me peace to know that he is with his lovely wife
and relatives. Well done thou good and faithful servant!
We will miss President Hinckley's optimism and candor. We have become a better
people for it.Faafetai lava President Hinckley.
Thank you so much for your example of love, faith, devotion, and service to
mankind. We will never forget you and your legacy.
I keep hearing everyone say that they are so saddened by the loss, I must
honestly say that I am not, we all know where he is going due to the way he
lived his life and we also know that he is going to see his best friend,
Marjoray whom he must have felt lonliness in her passing, I am grateful for the
example President Hinckley always gave and his great love for the temple. I am
also appreciative of the true gospel that lets me know that the church will
Pres. HinkleyWe were so blessed to be at the temple dedications of The
Hague, Netherlands and Helsinki,Finland Temples and hear your wonderful words
You will always be in our hearts and remembrance. What a wonderful example you
have been in our lives. We will miss you but know that you are now reunited with
your wonderful wife.
It is strange to think that on Jan 4, 2008 he was talking with Brother Watson
before Brother Watson attended the Bountiful Temple to perform our sealing. At
our ceramony Brother Watson stated that he spoke with President Hinckley as he
was getting ready to attend the Capitol's dedication. Brother Watson stated that
President Hinckley sent us his blessings. And as we were gathered around as a
family at the dinner table and hearing of the death of our prophet was very
emotional. President Hinckley was a righteous man and lead our church to many
new milestones. He will ever be remembered in our new journey as we were given
his blessings when kneeling across the alter.
There are few who matched this tremendous spirit in life. He stands tall among
the likes of Joseph, Brigham, Abraham, Enoch and Issac. His leadership and
presence was reassuring during his latter-day tenure and the void is acutely
felt. To me he was a hero...to me he provided hope and reassurance....to me he
was a lighthouse amid the turmoil of today's worldly difficulties. It's a sad
day for for us who are here but such a joyous day, I am sure, when he was
greeted by his sweet bride. God bless you Gordon B. Hinckley you will be
We are deeply saddened at the loss of such a great and loving Prophet and
man...we will miss him and rejoice at his reunion with his dear wife. We have
been blessed by his service.Great thanks to the Hinckley family for
sharing their father with the world. We send our deepest appreciation and love
to all of you.The Walkers
I was looking forward to seeing him at the spring session of general
Conference.He was such a happy soul, and had great humor.I have never seen
him before, but thats just too bad. He was a Wonderful prophet. He Inspired to
many peoplelike myself.He will be missed.-Jessica
If only I had known what a great man a sinner like me had the privilege of
sitting next to, for dinner, a few years back. I would have had so much to ask
him. He was definitely a man of the people, inspired by God. His wisdom, humor,
and insight will truely be missed.
President Hinckley you will surely be missed. Ourhearts and prayers goes
out to the Family during this time of your loss and ours.Salmon, Idaho
I love President Hickley. I was so close to him. And I'm only 14! But I am
friends with his nephew, he's the one that called me. Anyways, he will be missed
A great man and leader that the world will certainly miss.
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.
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!

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

We loved President Hinckley here in West Virginia and send our sympathies to his
What a great man! He will be missed by all. My prayers to his family.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 was a great leader and inspiration to us all. He will be greatly
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
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.
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.
What a great man and great example. I hope I can honor his life by following his
great words and counsel. Someone needs to write a 2nd part to his
biography--he's accomplished so much in in the last few years. Truly an example
of a follower of Christ. Glad he can reunite with his sweet wife.
He was a man of god and we will all miss him so. We all loved him
He will be missed. I am sure he is happy with Sister Hinckley. I know that
though the Prophet has died the office has not and we will always have a
Not many, but a couple of anti-Mormons on the thread,But guess what?President Hinckley would have smiled at you and invited you to come to
church..What a great missionary.
I loved this great man!
He will be truly missed he was a great example of a true prophet. Our wishes are
with his family during with difficlut time.
We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet! And what a great Prophet he was!

We will miss so many things, but have been richly blessed to have known him.
Enjoy your reunion with your sweetheart President Hinckley.
He will be missed. It makes me sad that people in my school don't now who he is.
I can't belive he's gone.
Gracias por todo, mi vida cambio por su ejemplo, un gran hombre
Last night around 8pm I received a text that President Hinckley passed away. My
wife was looking over my shoulder and we both saw the news simultaneously. It
felt as if the world had stopped for a moment and then I realized how much more
I need to do. It is incredible how he inspired me even in his death.
Thank you for everything President Hinckley. You made me feel great about being
a Mormon. I have always been so proud of you.
President Hinckley was more than just a prophet to the LDS faith, he was a
leader and voice in social and spiritual matters, in the local community, Utah,
the U.S., and the world.He was a great man to people of all faiths, a true
bridge builder.I, as a member of a different faith, will truly miss this
great man!Condolences to his family, and our neighbors of the LDS faith.
Our family was very sad to hear of President Hinckleys passing. He was a great
leader with a warm caring personality and a wonderful sense of humor. Even when
he was chastening us as members of the church he always did it in a kind and
loving way. May his legacy live on in the hearts of the people of the world.
Hopefully we will all remember the words he taught and continue to reach out and
befriend people of all faiths and recognize the ways we can touch each others
lives for the better no matter what we believe or what church we belong to. We
are all God's children and he loves us. Our hearts and prayers go out to the
Hinckley family at this time. God Bless You.
Thank you for your life President Hinckley. We love you.
What a wonderful prophet! We will miss you so very much. We love you President
Hinckley more that you know!!
I had the pleasure and honor to meet this Prophet of the Lord in the Salt Lake
Temple last year. He was a great man! In person, or on the T.V. he showed all
people great love. He grew up with my grandfather, so I heard a lot of fun
stories of their youth together. My father played w/ Pres. Hinckley's children
in the tree that is now the pulpit in the Conference Center. I was at the Day
of Celebration at the U of U when Pres. Hinckley spoke to the youth. I am
blessed to have been in his presence, under his leadership, and a member of this
glorious church at this time.
I am honored to have sustained President Hinckley as a prophet. No doubt he has
reported for duty and is busy still.
Pres. Hinckley foi um dos maiores homens que j pisou nesta terra. Em cada
conferncia ele falou especialmente para mim. Ensinou-me a ouvir meus filhos e a
am-los de maneira mais incondicional e terna. A controlar a ira e aproximar-me
do Senhor. Quantos favores ele fez, mesmo sem o saber.Ele foi como um
grande pai que, de longe, aconselhou gentilmente se filho no caminho mais
excelente.No estou triste por sua morte, pois ele tem um lugar
especialmente reservado mo direita de Deus, nosso Pai, mas estou triste pela
separao momentnea. Que o Senhor abenoe sua famlia nessa hora. Obrigado Presidente.IVAN CRUZ
Nothing can describe the tender feelings of our hearts as we have loved and
followed our Prophet these many years. He did prepare us that he would be
leaving soon and we do not mourn that he is gone but we celebrate that we had
him so long.
I think it caught everyone off guard. Only a prophet of God could do what he
did at the age of 84-97 He traveled everywhere. He truly was driven everytime
he spoke he had a message. He will be greatly missed the work will go on.
God bless his family. And may we all remember him and his counsil to live it
always. As we do we may also look forward with the optimism he always bestowed
on us. The parting is bittersweet, bitter for us who stand to mourn his loss
but sweet for him to go home to the God that gave him life and to his beloved
We truly do thank God for a prophet, especially Gordon B. Hinckley. He was a
great leader and lead not only those of the LDS faith, but the world to be
better people and fulfill the desires of Heavenly Father. May we rejoice in his
joyful and magnificent reunion with his wife, family and friends, and the
welcoming embrace he so greatly deserves from our Heavenly Father.
What a wonderful wonderful man!!!I did not know him personally but always felt
as if I did. He is the only prophet my children remember and oh what an example
he set. He will be deeply missed here on earth but what a reunion on the other
side. May his family be blessed with strengh and comfort. You are all in our
thoughts and prayers.
He was a beloved prophet, admired and loved by millions of people all around the
world. He was and is a wonderful example of how we all should try to live our
lives. He was committed and worked hard to do what was asked of him each day of
his life. Thank you President Hinckley. We will miss you greatly.
I am so grateful to have been lead by such a great man! I am also grateful that
he may now be reunited with his wife and the one he served so well. He will be
this is such a bad news ,we all loved this wonderfull man we live on a small
island called dominican republic we all will moved forward tahnks to teh lord
and president hinckley
He was a prime example of someone who wore himself out in service of the Lord. I
hope he takes a few days off before he gets crackin' on the other side. It helps
my sad heart to wonder about his reunion with his sweetheart Marjorie, and to
think about his reunion with all of his beloved brethren who have kept the faith
so well, and who have served so well and diligently, like him. May we show our
gratitude by doing the same.
President Hinckley,We love you. You are an amazing leader. You
will be missed. I'm glad you can be with you lovely wife, Marjorie, she was
also a wonderful example.Our prayers are with you family.
Non LDS... We pray for the Hinkley family and for all of Utah as you mourn this
loss. We pray for a fresh and bright revival in Utah as you seek the face of
Jesus for your comfort.
What a blessing President Hinckley has been to us and the world. We are so
thankful for this prophet. We know he is busily engaged in the next world with
his loving wife and family members he has been separated from. We pray that we
will someday get to shake his hand and tell him how much he has meant to us.
We can overflow with flowery dialogues that we love and respect our wonderful
President Hinkley, but to truly show him our love, we will follow his example
and the Lord's gospel which he taught (John 14:15). May we continue onward as
vibrantly as President Hinkley did and "go forth with new energy," as he
encouraged. Let us love our families and neighbors, let us magnify our
callings, let us open our mouths and share the gospel.Isn't it
wonderful to envision the sweet reunions on the other side? We are so blessed
to have the gospel and know that death is "really a step forward in Heavenly
He was one of the few church leaders to sincerely Thank the membership....a few
of the higherups could take some notes...
Im so grateful for being part of this blessed generation, that could enjoy and
learn from one of the greatest prophets...there is so much to do now, to honored
his wonderful work in the earth and dedication to the church and its memebers.
What an amazing example of dedication and love for the Lord and his Church. We
have know President Hinckley all of our lives and have continually learned from
him, what the Lord would have us do in many circumstances. Our heart felt
support goes now to the Quroum of Twelve and their task to select the next voice
of this church. We send our absolute support and love to all of you. To
President Hinckley's family we send our condolence and love. He will be missed
by us and our family. An exciting reunion is now taking place filled with
excitement for all who have been waiting for this time in his life. Life goes
on, we look forward to being in his presence once again. Love to you all.
It's hard to be sad when you realize the joy he so richly deserves at being
reunited with his beloved wife. I just can't feel grief at knowing of his
He was a man greatly loved and admired.
Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley Was the Prophet, with precisely the same authority of
Moses and Abraham and all the other prophets through the ages. A truly
remarkable human being has been lost, and I for one feel much honored to have
seen know him, I know I will truly miss him. I consider this personal loss as if
a family member is lost. He was a quiet man, but possessed such charisma, he was
so humble, kind and his legacy will remain in the church for some many
generations to come. He will be missed. All my sympathy, respect and I give my
heart and prayers to the family.
I was so sad to hear the news.What a wonderful man and the most wonderful
prophet. I loved him and I will miss him.I know he is so happy to be with his
dear wife once again.This makes me happy. I will always love and miss President
Hinckley.Great Man Great Prophet. I will alway remember his words,"It isn't as
bad as you sometime think it is. It all works out.Put your trust in God, move
forward with faith the Lord will not forsake us... Put your turst in God, and
While serving a mission in Alaska, President Hinckley spoke the missionaries and
I don't think I had ever laughed so hard. His stories and humor were the best.
He will be missed.
The DiGirolamo Family from Raleigh, NC was deeply saddened to hear the news of
President Hinckley's passing last night. After we got the phone call - we went
to the computer- and the servers were so busy - we couldn't get any news for a
bit. Finally - it went through - as I'm sure thousands of you with us were
trying to get some news of our beloved prophet. We mourn for him - yet we are
so happy he is reunited with his beloved wife. We truly "Thank Thee Oh God For
A Prophet". President Hinckley reached out to so many-and he especially LOVED
the youth of the church. We are all better people because of his
service and love and charity.God be with you till we meet again.The Vincent DiGirolamo familyRaleigh - NC
Our great prophet, leader and friend will truly be missed. His contribution to
the world was amazing during his 97 years here on this earth. I am so grateful
to have met him and his dear wife, Majorie and to have traveled with them for
several weeks. It will be something I'll never forget.
It is so sad that President Hinckley died. I was at A Youth Standards Night
fireside, and after it was over, one of the people in our stake presiency stod
up and said that he had just recieved confirmation that President Hinckley
passed away. And then we sang We Thank Thee O God For a Prophet, But barely
anybody sang because we were so sad.That is how i found out he died. It was very
sad because we were all so happy and having fun, but then boom, there came the
news.It was very sad. I loved President Hinckley. He was my favorite prophet. I
cant wait to see him in heaven!!
I was baptized in 1996, Gordon B. Hinkley is the only prophet I have ever known.
I have been to a few general conferences since I have been baptized, and I have
felt his spirit just by being in the same room as him. One of the people that I
felt that I needed to meet was Gordon B. Hinkley, but I know that I will meet
him and know of his spirit. I know that he was a prophet of god, and I know
that he is with his wife and heavenly father doing his work from the other side.
He is with all the prophets that have passed before him helping them do the
work that they still need to do. I know that one day I will be able to meet him
and know of his love. My prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends
in their time of loss. God be with you all during this trying time.
What an incredible example of Christ-like service and devotion was President
Hinckley. May we follow his example. His sense of humor was priceless.
Blessings to his family.
As a non member of the church living in Utah for over 20 years, I can only send
my condolences to a faith that is in mourning today. President Hinckley was a
great man, and will be missed by millions of people around the world.
God bless you and your family President Hinkley
Whenever I saw you or heard your voice the Holy Spirit testified to me that you
are a Prophet of God. You truly are! What a great leader and example you have
been to me and millions around the world. Your example and legacy will live on.
My 7 year old teared up when he heard the news of your passing; As did I. You
and your wife had such dynamic beauty and were truly a wonderful example to the
world. Thanks for being everything you were to so many people. God bless you and
your beautiful wife. We were all so blessed to have you a part of our lives.
President Hinckley was a great influence to, not just members of The Church, but
to other individuals around the world. He will be greatly missed by everyone.
Even with this tragity in our life, there is also great joy. He lead a great
life, and now He is going to join His Eternal companion, because of this I am
extemely happy for Him. I love President Hinckley and will always remember His
great example. As a youth, this is pretty hard because He was the one Prophet I
grew up listening to and looking up to. Once again, I love Him and will always
I'm going forth to serve in Zion, in the Missouri Independence Mission. It was
President Gordon B. Hinckley that signed my letter to go, and I will be sure to
honor his trust that I would serve honorably, by serving honorably. Gordon B.
Hinckley is the prophet I grew up to. I will always remember him as my prophet.
Thank you President Hinckley. Hurrah for Israel!
Farewell President Hinckley. You are a beloved leader who will missed!
This great man was not born for himself, his family, or his faith, but rather he
was born for the benefit of the human race. He will be missed by all whether
they know it or not. Thank you for you all that you did.
Much love to President Hinckley and may the Lord bless you and keep you.May the new Apostles keep the tradition President Hinckley started, and
be directed as he was directed in this great church!
Thank you for the inspirations and great leadership. What a great reunion with
your sweet heart and especially with your creator as he embraces you and say
WELL DONE THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT. We will miss you as we try to live up
to your council. Our prayers are with your family
He will be miss a lot. The best way to honor his memory is by doing what he
taught. He is the prophet of my youth, what a wonderful opportunity! Its good to
know the plan of salvation in moments like this. We love you president Hinckley,
thank you for your example and life of service.
Solch ein Beispiel! Solch ein wunderbarer Profet. Du bist nicht mehr mit uns,
aber wir werden dich niemals vergessen. Wir freuen uns dass du mit deiner Frau
wider bist. Wir beten jetzt fur President Monson.
Our President Hinckley has gone to a better place with her beloved wife. I know
he is a prophet, I cannot express how sad I feel knowing he won't be here to
speak to us anymore. I will always love him, and I will always remember how
positive he was for life, how much he care for all of us and how much he loved
our Heavenly Father. He is a great example of true love. He will be miss always.
I think the only thing we can do right now its to do what he told us to do. Be
obidente, strength our testimonies and never forget that there is a Heavenly
Father in heaven who listen to our prays. Thank you my beloved President
Hinckley, Now I know you are with your wife again.We will miss you.
We will always remember Pesident Hinckley with love
I will miss his delightful sense of humor and inspiring words. With his
unflagging optimism, he just had this way of making everything seem better--that
there really is hope for the future. He really was a great man.
If each of us loved people as much and gave as much service to the world as he
did, can we just imagine what a wonderful world this would be! We love him and
we will miss him. We are praying for his family, the quorum of the twelve,
president Monson and President Eyring.
We were sad to hear the news and my husband and 3 daughters cried as we realized
that we has lost our beloved prophet but they were also tears of joy as we knew
that he was with his wife of so many years forever never to be seperated. Our
hearts and prayers go out to President and Sister Hinkley's family as they go
through this period of mourning. As one who has lost both a mother and father I
understand the tender feelings of this time. May we all go forward and indeed
"Stand for something" as we strive to be the kind of example to each other, to
those around us and to the world of what it means to be a disciple of Christ and
a member of His church. We love President Hinkley and will miss his quick witt,
his wonderful smile and gentleness that made him loved by so many member and
non-member alike. Thank you for teaching us what it means to be a true
christian.The Castle Family Howard, Teena, Julynne,Jessica and Jennifer
What a remarkable man! I'll miss his wit, humor and most of all, his brilliance
Dear President Himckley,I look forward to hopefully qualifying to serve
under your leadership on the other side of the veil.I've been grateful to
know that I was baptized on the weekend (6 Apr 1958) when you became a General
Authority of the Church, as an Assistant to The Twelve. As a member of the
Quorum of the Twelve, you made our little branch a ward and me a grateful
bishop. I know your leadership continues, and many members who preceded you
through the veil during your Presidency here have been looking forward to your
joining and leading them there.Praise the Lord!
To the Hinckley Family:Thank you so much for sharing your father and
grandfather with the church and the world. Your sacrifice allowed President
Hinckley to bless this world with his wisdom, wit and inspiration. I had several
contacts with him over the years and I was personally blessed by him and his
tender care at a time of personal sorrow in my own life. Thank you again.
Pres. Hincley was the prophet for the majority of my life. And he has impacted
my life in lots of major ways. I love him dearly. He will be sorely missed. I
know he is glad to finally again be with his eternal companion. Pres. Hinckley
will never be forgotten.
Pes. Hinkley is such an amazing man! Im so sad he has passed but so happy for
him!! He gets to be with his sweetheart and our father.
It is so sad that he died. i was at a standards night fireside, and after it was
over, someone in our stake presidency stood up there and just mentioned that he
just recieved the confirmation that President Hinckley died. so that is how we
found out that he died. and then we sang We Thank Thee O God For a Prophet, But
barely anyone sang because everyone was so sad.But that was a very sad way to
find out he died. we were all so happy, and then boom, there came the news. I
loved President Hinckley. He was my favorite prophet. I cant wait to see him in
Tears of love from my wife and I for this great man who inspired and helped
bless our lives with great council that has helped our lives in every way.
President Hinkley and his wife are the worlds hope and example of everything
that is great about marriage and how we should be.
The end of a great era, with sadness as one so great leaves us more lonly. An
old giant has falled, a stature that stands tall next to anyone in history! We
will miss him greatly. A yet, life rolls on.
Unfortunately I knew this day would have to come, his health had been going
downhill ever since the death of his wife. But in a way I am happy for him now,
he is no longer in pain and he has been reunited with his loved ones, the Church
will never forget you Pres. Hinckley, God bless you and your family.You will be missed.
Thank you so much President Hinckley. I know that you were called of God and
that the fullness of the priesthood was/is truly with you. I'm so happy that
you will now be with your dear wife and friend. We love you and your witness.
As I listened to your last talk in General Conference I couldn't help but smile
knowing that it was a witness of the boy prophet, Joesph Smith. I am so
grateful that one of your last testimonies was that of Joseph Smith seeing both
the Father and the Son. We will miss you.
We always felt that when he smiled he was smiling right at us. We knew he loved
us and we loved him. He was the Prophet of our children's childhood. We thank
him for his leadership and his love. He will be missed!
This is by far the most comments I've ever seen, since Deseret News started
doing comments by thier readers. Would'nt be nice to go where he's going I mean
he's got a first class ticket to the highest kingdom we can live in. I LOVE
YOU...President Hinckley, and thank you for being here for us. I'm very greatful
to have lived during your era.
A prophet that led the church with such vibrance as he did will deeply missed.
I will miss the talks where he can so lovingly inspire us, make us laugh, but
then remind us to be grounded just the same in respecting our fellow man and
promoted religious tolerance to those not of our faith. Let us do as he did
when he became the prophet of this church and "Carry On". God be with the
Hinkley family and all who mourn him at his passing. 'Til we meet again...
I was very saddened to receive a call last night informing my of President
Hinckely's passing. He was so amazing in his tireless efforts to further our
Savior's work as the head of His church. What an example of combining talent
and creativity with hard work to help bring souls to Christ! The list of his
accomplishments are astounding. I thank God for this Prophet and the
immeasurable good that he did. As the brethren have pointed out, he is the
greatest temple builder in history. His ministry has blessed the lives of
countless millions here on earth and in the hereafter. Thank you President
Hinckley. We can scarcely express the depth of our love and appreciation for
all you have done.
Godspeed, Brother Hinckley!
The world has lost a powerful advocate for Jesus Christ. He will be missed
dearly. We pray for his family and associates. Yet, we know he had a great
reunion waiting for him on the other side of the veil. We love you President
Hinckley and your family.
How can my heart feel so borken, yet so overwhelmingly happy for the release of
President Hinckley's great spirit. Must be an LDS thing! What an inspiration
he has been!
How we loved him. His words and counsel will live on through eternity. We will
I just wanted to say thankyou to President Hinkley he was such a great man and a
good example I amsure he will be greatly missed but it is good to know he is
with his beloved wife. I LOVE HIM
President Hinckley will be missed. I feel very sad to hear of his passing but
joyful to think of his reunion with his wife and other beloved family members
and friends. We will remember him always.
For a man that has lived his life as long as he has, I remember him saying "He
is going to try to be a better man for the rest of his life." I want to "Thank
Him" for all that he has done for our Church and our society and the world. We
all love him and will miss him very much. He is know with his beloved wife and
all the other prophets and our Father in Heaven. I will always love this man for
what he has done for me and my family. Thank You
He who knows and knows not that he knows is sleeping; wake him. He who
knows not and knows not he knows not is foolish; shun him.He who knows not
and knows he knows not is humble; teach him.He who knows and knows that he
knows is wise; follow him.(Eastern Proverb)Praise to the Man" - a
true prophet - who was not only a good and faithful servant but one who
magnified his calling and raised the bar by his own example. Selfishly I had
hoped he would live several more years, so that I could continue to follow him
and try to absorb even a little of his great humor and wit. The world seems
darker right now his candle could not be hid in life. He was a man who knows
that he knows, and I gladly and humbly followed him, because I know he followed
the Savior. My love and prayers to his family. And to all the
Saints and people who loved him.
Thank you Pres. Hinkley for your example and teachings. I am a better man
because of you. I know you had a beautiful reunion with your family last night.
Again God be with you til we meet again.
In Idaho the earth mourns your passing and expresses its grief in the wind! We
love you, we miss you, we celebrate your sweet reunion with your dear wife.
Thank you so much!!!The Idaho Beans
We should celebrate the exemplary life he led and honor him by living the
Christ-like attributes he taught. Thank you President Hinckley for your life of
Its Not So Sad. Its Beautiful Because He Lived A Full Life, Most Of Us Will
Never Have The Chance To Live And Now He's With Marjorie Again. The Loss Is Only
Earthly And Very Much Felt. But His Life Is Truly Eternal And You Know He Went
Straight To Heavenly Father And Got A Big Huge Embrace.
God be with you til we meet again. We will all strife to honor your legacy and
remeber your motto to Carry On.
A great prophet who's work ethic, personality, love, and humor will be sorely
missed by so many of us.
Have loved President Hinkley since I was a youg girl our love and admiration
grew as a young married couple he visited our Stake and admonished the members
to bloom and strengthen the Church where they were and not be anxious to move to
Utah. "We need strong members of the Church in all parts of the world." he told
us. "Utah doesn't need you, but your are despartly needed here."The world
has lost a great leader.
Thank you President Hinckley for your example of living a Christ centered life.
God Bless you and your family.
Bless you dear President Hinckley for your life and ministry among God's
children. Because "...we live together in love..." we "...weep for the loss
of them that die...". We love you, and we mourn your passing. We rejoice in
the knowledge of your joyous reunion with loved ones, prophets past, and our
beloved Savior.Condolences to the Hinckley family.Our
faith, prayers and confidence to President Monson and his family.BroadbentsHurricane, UT
I am from the UK, all I can say is that I am joining with my brothers and
sisters around the world in both grief and joy. Grief because we are going to
miss this incredible Prophet and wonderful man, and joy because he is now with
his beloved wife who he wanted so much to follow. I loved him with all of my
heart, he touched everyone through his teachings and his words of wisdom and
love. The world is going to be so much emptier without him. I will miss seeing
his smile, and hearing his voice at conferences when they were transmitted via
satellite to us. I haven't been a member for many years, but in the short time
that I have, I came to love him, respect him and know that he was a true Prophet
of God. May he rest in peace and have a wonderful time with Marjorie, I can only
imagine his face coming face to face with Our Heavenly Father, it would be
wreathed in smiles. God bless you President Hinckley, Wales, where you once
served on your mission is going to miss you. You will be sadly missed.
President Hinckley will be greatly missed. What an inspirational life. He had
such a wonderful way of speaking that made everyone feel that he was just like
your own Father or Grandfather. It is amazing how much he accomplished in his
life and how many peoples lives he made better. He truly endured to the end and
showed us how to be more Christlike. Our thoughts and prayers now turn to Pres.
Monson he too is a truly remarkable man and will be a great prophet as well.
Thank you for your guidance, vision, and humor. You will be missed. May God
watch over your family and comfort them.
Kudos to Deseret News for such a fantastic article on an inspirational man. The
article is so comprehensive and informative. President Hinckley was an example
of hard work, humility, and integrity.
Thanks be to the Father for allowing us to have President Hinkley for so long.
Praise to the man.
I think of President Hinckley as a prophet of surprises. He had so many
surprises for us such as the many temples, the perpetual education fund, the
conference center, the pulpit in the conference center, and one of my favorites,
the birthday parties which he gave and invited us all to attend. How we will
I skimmed through this long list and I would like to take a moment to
thank all of you who have issues with our fath for being kind and not using this
time to criticize our fath and I thank you our this great man. Thank You so
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hinkley Family. He was such a wonderful
person, and a great example to all of us. What an exciting time for him, as now
he is reunited with the love of his life. As a convert to the Church I am
grateful for the examples he set for me, and for leading our Church in the right
direction.God bless Our Prophet! God Bless Gordon B Hinkley! God
Bless the Hinkley family.
I am no longer active. Still, I never lost my love, respect, and admiration for
this great man.
I was sad to hear of President Hinckley's passing. He was a great man and will
be dearly missed. I'm confident his great work will affect generations of
people to come. I'm sure he's grateful to be reunited with his wife and I'm
sure he'll continue his mission on the other side.
Prior to President Hinckley's passing, I often asked myself how I would react
when he died. I would be devastated, I thought; however, when my wife and I
heard of his death last night, my initial thoughts turned to the joyous reunion
between President Hinckley and his sweet wife! It was a great moment I'll never
From Edmonton, our family was sad to hear of the passing but rejoices in the
glory he is now experienceing. He is still an wonderful example. Give Sister
Hinckley a hug from us!
Pres. Hinckley was sustained President of the Church shortly before I was
baptized in 1995. His words and testimony gave me light and strength during
difficult times. I will forever be grateful for this good man.
He was the most remarkable man, such positive attitude among such a pesimistic
world. You could always look to him to find the silver lining in ANY cloud. He
will be greatly missed. I am so glad to know he is with his sweetheart now. I
know the church will go on and a new Prophet will be just as wonderful and bring
what we need at this time.
There are not words enough to express how our family mourns the loss of this
wonderful prophet and great leader.Thank you President Gordon B.
Hinckley for your perfect leadership. You have given so much to our world. My
family is eternally grateful for you, and the devoted and genuine love that you
have so well expressed to others.I am truly happy that you have been
reunited with your beloved Marjorie. You will be so deeply missed
by all who have been touched by your earthly spiritual presents.Thank you for making the world a better place for us all. xoxoxooxoxoxxooxxo
What a Great Man--The world will truly miss you!
This man inspires all he came into contact to be better and to reach higher.
What a tremendous legacy he has left. A true example of laboring tirelessly with
no expectation of reward. This world mourns his loss but rejoices in the
knowledge that he has been reunited with his sweet wife.
May God Bless
Pres. Hinkley is such a powerful example of service, love, and courage till the
end. He was so candid in his messages. I will miss him dearly.
As we got the new at the Kent Stake Youth Fireside I could feel hearts swelling
in sadness because we lost a great Prophet. He wasn't just known for being the
oldest Prophet to live, he was known for how many lives he touched and how many
hearts where touched as well. The closing song we sang was changed to "We Thank
The Oh God For A Prophet". As we sang that song so many people were crying
because we new we wouldn't be able to see him again until it is our turn to go
live with Heavenly Father. Right now all i can really say is God be with you
till we meet again!!
He WaS A VERY HUMbLE..N WE ALL NOE THAT HE IS IN A BETTER PLACE WITH HIS
WIFE...WE ALL LOVED HIM TILL WE MEET AGAIN..OFA LAHI ATU!!
Our family was so sad to hear of President Hinckley's passing. He is with his
beloved wife now. He was a wonderful Prophet and example to us all. Our
thoughts and prayers are with his family.He will be greatly missed.With Sympathy,The Gebauer family
President Hinckley has now returned from where he came from before coming to
earth. He set the example, gave us encouragement, direction, etc. to help us
return to where he has gone. Can't thank him enough to him being a Prophet
I teared up reading through these comments. If greatness is measured by the love
a person leaves behind in this world, then surely Pres. Hinckley was a GREAT
man! He will be missed, and his life will be celebrated now and forever. May God
grant him peace and rest from the cares of this world. He truly earned it.
What an example of hard work, dedication, and focus on the eternal things of
man's existence. We should all mirror the principles this man loved.
We were so saddened to receive an early morning phone call telling us of
President Hinckley's passing but know he is now experiencing a joyous reunion
with his beloved, Marjorie. We thank God for such a wonderful prophet and now
pray for his family and those who will continue to serve and move the work
forward, which is just what President Hinckley would want to happen. He always
"forgot himself" and "went to work"! What a great example to follow.Elder/Sister Nield Ireland Dublin Mission
I was in a fireside when i got the news about President Gordon B. Hinckley. As
They told us the sad news, I and a whole bunch of others started crying. Because
he was such a great man and did so much for our church around the world! He
blessed us all and touched so many hearts in so many ways! I know we all miss
him, but he is in a good place now with his Heavenly Father and his Wife,
Marjorie! The one thing i am going to miss so much is hearing his talks at
General Conference and also seeing his smiling face every time i watch BYU
Can you imagine the applause when he past through the veil?
I'm sure he hit the ground running on the other side. There is much work to do
and he was always in there doing more than his part.
I showed up to a high school today and half the kids were dresserd in church
attire. They were showing respect for the passing of a prophet who had such an
influence on the youth! At 97 he could relate to teens! AMAZING!
President Hinckley has made as much impact on the lives of all who knew him.
What a loss to his family and the world at large. My condolences to the family
and blessings on those who now carry on the leadership roles without him.
Our Dear Prophet and President has completed his mission here on earth. What a
great man and leader he was; truly an ensign to the world. We mourn his passing
and remember his great works, his energetic service, and his loving smile. How
happy he must be to rejoin his loving wife! May his family and friends be
comforted during this difficult time.
We are so grateful to have had such an OPTIMISTIC, LOVING PROPHET! He was full
of life to the very end and inspired all of us to be better, to accomplish more
and to read our scriptures daily! We are Thankful for the challenges he gave us
and for the "Way to BE". "We will Stand For Something" as we "Stand A Little
Taller" We are thrilled for the reunion in Heaven and for his Sweetheart! What
a party there is today!!!Although our home is full of 7 heavy hearts, I
couldn't help but be touched at how the spirit in our home changed at the news.
With 4 wrestling, active teenage boys, ages 16-12 and one sweet 7 year old girl,
complete silence added to the shock! The quiet reverence for "THEIR" beloved
prophet was a wonderful tribute to the prophet of their testimonies. How
Bitter/Sweet this life is!Thank You dear Hinckley Family for all that you
have given to us, even your father, brother, uncle, friend! Much love and
prayers are with You!
All men die. Not all men truly live. Thanks for everything brother. Enjoy
some well earned time off.
We thank thee Oh God for a Prophet - President Hinckley, in these Later-Days! He
will be missed!
You have been one of the most influencial people in our lives, and wil continue
to be so. We love you and your energy and dedication to the work of the Lord.
You are a constant example and will be forever.
This single man has done so much more that can ever be expressed in words in
advancing the work of the Lord upon the Earth. On behalf of hundreds of
thousands of Brazilian saints who love President Hinckley, I express my love and
"saudade" for our wonderful leader.
It saddens me to know that he is gone, but I know that he is now with his
beloved eternal companion and he is happy. I'm sure he is still doing great
things to help this church move along on the other side. He will be greatly
Pres. Hinckley was the perfect prophet for our time. Truly, one of a kind. No
one of any age could match his quick wit, veracious thirst for knowledge,
ability to eloquently deliver a message that could be enjoyed by old and young
alike, his untiring efforts to lift his brothers and sisters across the world,
nor his vast knowledge and experience in so many fields and disciplines. He was
a renaissance man in a world ruled by the niches of society. God bless the life
and legacy of this great man!
What a wonderful legacy President Hinckley gave us: great faith, eternal
optimisin, marvelous sense of humor and strong leadership. May the Lord be
with the Hinckley family.Til we meet again, dear Prophet.
What a wonderful man! We were so blessed to have him lead and guide us!
President Hinckley's love and cousel saw us through high school, college, our
marriage and the births of our children. He has inspired deeper testimony and
faith in our Savior. We will be forever grateful for this wonderful prophet of
God that will be forever in our thoughts and hearts. May we all live up to his
expectations of us to stand a little taller. As my 6-year-old daughter always
spoke of him, Heavenly Hinckley is my friend!
It is amazing to me the impact that this single servant of The Lord made. What a
wonderful life lived! My heart aches for his family, and is overjoyed at the
thought of his open armed reception.
He was a great man who gave his life to the lord. Many thanks to his family for

I was honored to have heard President Hinckley's wife's funeral services from
outside the Tabernacle but will not be blessed to hear President Hinckley's.
For that I am sad, but happy that he is reunited with his loving wife, Marjorie
and Heavenly Father. What a GREAT Prophet he was. I will forever remember him
and all that he accomplished here on earth. May he rest in peace with his dear
wife. What a truly wonderful man he was for The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saint. I will truly miss his talks on General Conference day. What
a truly wonderful, inspiring man he was. We thank thee, O God, for a prophet
and for this great man. May he rest in peace. My condolences to the family and
the rest of the world for the loss of such a great man.
What a great man! I am so happy for his life and even more happy that he can
rejoin his wonderful wife in the afterlife! He will be missed.
Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful....
I'll miss you, President Hinckley. You've been an example to me at some very
important moments in my life.
So long for now President Hinckley. We will continue to strive to roll the work
forward just as you asked us to do so many times. We thank you for your
life-long dedication to the Church, its members and non-members alike. Your
love for the Youth is beyond measure and I know they are forever grateful for
your counsel and inspiration to them.". . .he who doeth the works
for righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and
eternal life in the world to come." D&C 59:23
We'll miss you, President Hinckley.-From Resistencia, Argentina.
God Bless and Thank You...You have touched me over the years and we all will
miss your guidance. Again, I am happy for you and sad for the rest of us.
The saints in Iowa will surely miss President Hinckley. Our love and best
wishes to his family and all those who loved the prophet!
He was a GREAT man. We will miss him dearly. He was a great example of love,
kindness, happiness and a respect. Thank you for your service and your love.
Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley was our beloved Prophet. His counsel is cherished, his
love and kindness exemplary, his smile was captivating and his physical strength
at 97 was amazing. Though we miss him greatly, we know he is in perfect health
now and that he has happily rejoined his beloved wife, parents, and many loved
ones who have gone on before. We grieve at our loss of this great Prophet and
defender of the faith.
We are happy for him to be reunited with Sister Hinckley, but sad for us to be
without his energetic and dynamic leadership. We love the prophet!
I have a picture in my mind of the Savior looking fondly on as President
Hinckley is greeted by his wife and then embracing him with a "Well done thou
good an faithful servant.
President Hinckley was a wonderful prophet and example of a disciple of
Christ...The light of Christ was reflected through him. Let us all try to
emulate him by coming closer to our Savior. This gospel is true. The plan of
salvation is a perfect plan of happiness. Life continues after death. President
Hinckley remains an instrument in the Lord's hands. We mourn and rejoice at the
same time. We are thankful for remarkable love and leadership from all who
Thank you President Hinckley.Will someone get the advertisement with

His lifestyle for his entire life made this world a better place to live, and so
his goodness/dedication to our Lord has improved the lives of millions, both on
this side of the veil..and the other. With humility and love I speak of his
greatness, some sadness at his death, but great joy for his reunion with his
beloved wife and other family members. geny morriosn
We never met. We never shook hands. But we new you and loved you. You were a
friend to all and loved everyone just the same. You will be missed and we shall

have been conveyed to us through you. We will miss your loving, childlike humor.

A wonderful prophet! There will never be another one like him. What a loss for
the members of the church, but I'm so happy that he is able to be with his
lovely wife that he missed so much. I feel like a family member has
left us, he will be dearly missed.
We thank thee oh God for a Prophet!! Thank you President Hinkley for you loving
We add to those above our love for President Hinckley. He truly is a great man,
a great prophet of God. We will miss him very much - his cheerful smile, the
wave of his hand or cane, his quick wit, his faithful testimony, his service and
love for all people. We are grateful that he has returned to the side of his
sweet Marjorie and home to our Heavenly Father. His influence and love and faith
have strengthen so many and our own family. His faith was constant as the north
star- we knew we could always count on him to lead us closer to the Savior. Our
prayers are with the Hinckley family, and with President Monson and his family.
We know that He will be blessed of the Lord and strengthen as he takes this new
call as the Prophet and President of the Church. Our faith and prayers are with
you. This is the Lord's work and it will continue to roll forth!
You know, he is smiling now at all the attention. What a humble and loving
man...a Prophet of the Living God. I am happy for him. He has lived an
exemplilary live and fought a great fight in helping bring to pass all Our
Father has in store for us. May we follow his worthy example
A great man has been lost. He will be missed.

lives.We are deeply grateful for having being blessed with your
I am so thankful for the example set by Pres Hinckley. He has inspired me on
numerous occasions and I am very grateful for his wisdom. I find it hard to
imagine getting as excited as I have before about going to Priesthood Meeting.
I always looked forward to hearing him close that meeting with wonderful words
of wisdom and counsel. On the other hand, I am so happy that he is now with his
dear wife again. We love you guys!
who's influence knows no bounds. Thank you, President Hinckley.
Thank you for your dedicated service. Best wishes and prayers go out to your
family and those with whom you worked everyday.
We will truly miss our beloved prophet. It is through his example, love and
dedication of the gospel that helped our family come back to the church. Our
testimony has been strengthened by his fierce belief in the gospel and of our
Lord and savior. Til we meet again President Hinckley!
We are so grateful for such a wonderful Prophet. He inspired us so much in our
lives.We loved him so much.
We'll miss President Hinckley. What a Christ like man he was. We love him and
our prayers are with his family at this time.
Se fue uno de los mas grandes profetas de todos los tiempos. Pero el a dejado un
legado "El testimonio verdadero de un vidente y profeta-"JESUCRISTO VIVE".I am so sad! but i know president Hinckley is with our Heavenly Father and
Jesus Christ, and is together to his eternal wife sister Hinckley.Now we
must to do all president Hinckley teach us!Every time president Hinckley
and all prophets of God will be in the memberships heart!
As a wordsmith he excelled. I have no doubts that he loved his wife, children,
grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with an eternal love. He served the
almighty and magnified his callings with a selfless attitude that truly
resembled that of the Almighty.I will always remember the message he
received from his father while serving his mission in England: "Dear Gordon,
Forget yourself, and go to work." I believe what he said that everything good
in his life could be traced back to the moment he received that message and
re-dedicated his life to the Lord.His memory will long be cherished
by the Latter-day Saints.
I thank the Hinckley Family for sharing their father with us. I thank the Lord
for blessing and prolonging the life of our dear Prophet. He was a man of
vision, revelation, boldness, optimism, wisdom, and every other quality a
prophet needs. He helped me seek out our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Even though he served his Lord for so many years and reached his 97th year on
this earth, it's so hard to say goodbye to such a loving prophet. I'm so
thankful I lived during his years of service. I truly loved this giant of a man.
Like so many othe converts to the church President Hinckley is MY prophet. He is
an inspiration to the world of how to truely love one another as brothers and
sisters regardless of ethnicity, religion or ability. He loved us all and
serviced joyfully and tirelessly on our behalf. What a wonderful world we would
have if we could all try to embody the pure love of Christ as our beloved
President does. I pray that his family will be comforted by Heavenly Father with
the assurance that our dear President is with his eternal companion in Christ's
arms. He will be missed dearly and I hope we will all strive to honor him by
carrying on his noble work.
You had the most amazing righteous glow! I shall never forget you! Thanks for
dedicating all of those temples! I hope you enjoy the sweet reunion with your
wife and beloved friends/apostles.
I just cried after reading the comments from "Sky" at Lone Peak High School and
how the students are going to be in their Sunday best at school as a tribute to
President Hinckley who loved everyone, but especially the young people... Like
Moses, Isaiah, Joseph Smith, Brigham Young and all of the prophets of the past
and the prophets who again walk the earth, President Gordon B. Hinckley served
our Heavenly Father with love and diligence until he was called home. What an
example for us to follow... "By their fruits ye shall know them..."
We love you dear President Hinckley and will miss you.
We have heavy hearts this day to hear of the passing of our beloved prophet,
President Hinckley. Our family has been blessed with his tender words and
remarkable vigor to endure to the end. What a great example we have had in
these latter days to emulate. We will miss your sweet countenance and
inspiration. Thank you. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all that loved him,
especially his family and friends.
I share my tears of joy that you are with Heavenly Father. You are inspiration
for all humanity to follow in your loving and charitable footsteps. Godspeed.
Thank you President Hinckley for all you have done for the Church and its
members. What an amazing man to pattern our lives after!
I was shocked to hear of President Hinkley's passing on NPR this morning. What a
blessing it has been to sit at his feet for the past 13 years. I will miss him,
but his influence for good will always be a part of me, and I will always be
grateful for his influence on my family.
While i am not a Mormon, I loved and respected President Hinkley. He brought all
religions together. He helped us non Mormons understand the Mormon church. He
was a man that wanted to help all people and that he did. He will always remain
a hero to me.
I have been truly blessed in all the milestones of my life with the inspiring
words and actions of our dear prophet. He will be greatly missed, but I know he
is so happy to be reunited with his sweetheart on the other side. President
Hinckley, thank you for your wonderful example and your dedication to the Lord
and His work. We will long to hear your voice one more time at General
Conference, but know your spirit will still be felt. Til we meet again...Ofa lahi atu,Vea Family
President Hinckley was a great man not because he was the prophet but because he
was simply great. He taught me so much.
Thank you for your wonderful sense of humor,humility, and the love you expressed
to everyone. It was truly felt. You were an inspiration to all. We will miss
you. You are truly an incredible man and I'm sure your celebration with your
sweet wife continues. Thank you President Hinckley.
Estoy profundamente agradecido de Nuestro Padre Celestial por haber vivido
durante el tiempo del Presidente Gordon B. Hinckley y sentir su inmensa fuerzae
Thank you President Hinckley for all of your guidance, love and service. We
love you! May God bless your family, now and in the future. Love,The Branden and Carson Lish Family
Though I am not a member, I feel awful about the loss of this great man. He was
an incredible leader, full of faith, and a very intelligent man. I am so
happy that he is with his wife... and the Lord. How blessed this world has
been to have him around for so long! His works will surely last forever!Sincerely, Sandy
My family will miss him very much. He is a great leader and a very loving human
being. My love to his family. My family and I have learned so much from him. I
will always cherish the moment I was able to shake his hand after he spoke to us
at the Redlands Stake Center years ago. He had a great sense of humor. He was
always saying somthing funny. I loved that about him.RespectfullyThe Maness Family.
As a single mother with four children, I looked forward to President Hinckley's
messages on a regular basis, as I knew his word was true revelation direct from
God. Between reading scriptures and listening to our prophet's counsel, our
family has witnessed many miracles, had wonderful health and felt comfort and
love when needed. My children are now grown, and we contribute our family
closeness to the many nights reading from President Hinkley's book of thoughts
about many subjects, along with the scriptures. My children have been able to
meet and shake his hand when they were young, which still impacts them even
today. Gordon B. Hinckley is a true prophet of God, and will always be etched
in our minds as one of the greatest. We will miss him greatly and are ready to
embrace our next prophet, seer and revelator. Daytona & Family from Eagle,
I add my thoughts to thousands of others. I shook Pres. Hinckley's hand at the
1985 dedication of the Jhb, South Africa Temple and could feel the love of God
in him. I later had the opportunity to meet him when he was Prophet. Not only
was his office great, but so was the man. He has left a lasting impression on
You helped me. You gave me hope. You taught me devotion. You showed the way. You
were a light that showed the way to "Him." Thank you, President Hinkley. Thanks
for taking care of my daughter. Thanks for being personally involved.MDA.
We love and will miss you President Hinckley! You are truly one of the greateat
men ever to live. Til we meet again!
God Bless President Hinckley
How greatful we are for the peace and comfort the gospel brings to us. We are
also greatful for the organization of the church and the priesthood keys that
are on the earth to continue to guide us. The work goes forth on both sides of
We thank thee oh God for a Prophet... President Hinckley we love and miss you
deeply! These comments are a testimony to the great man he was and the life he
lived. The comments and his passing fill my heart with immense love and great
sorrow at his passing.
ele foi um exemplo na minha vida!
President Hinckley is truly an inspiration. Anyone who knew him regardless of
faith could only see a man of kindness, integrity, and power. Thank you,
President, for your wonderful life and beautiful example. I hope to meet you
Your example to all of us will cause us to stand a little taller...you will be
remembered with love. Thank you for your dedication to the Lord. We miss you.
I just finished crying at my desk as I heard the news and reflected on what
President Hinkley has meant to me. He will have to forgive me for disregarding
his council to give our best to our employer for 30 minutes this afternoon as I
go back and listen to his confernce talk on-line over lunch and reflect on the
the things that I learned from him.
He will be dearly missed. I had wished to see him during conference in the
fall, but I'm sure he's happy to be with Mrs. Hinckly now.
We Thank Thee O God For This Prophet.
Pres Hinkley was a great man to look up to...I was able to see him in
Greenville, NC when he came to visit at the campus of ECU. It will always be a
day that I will never forget. Our family is sad to know he is gone, but know he
is with his sweet wife and eternal companion.
Praise to an amazing man! He will be remembered for the eternities! We love you
and thank you for all your hard work! We know you are rejoicing with your wife!
Much love to the Hinckley Family!MB,SC
We love you President Hinckley. You will always be in our heart.Me
President Hinckley will surely be missed, what an example for the world. He has
been the only prophet I have got to know since my husband baptized me. We love
you and miss you.Scott, Nicole, Mikayla, Toby and Lauren P.
President Hinckley was always so optimistic and kind to everyone. His sense of
humor and his wisdom will truly be missed. It's wonderful for him to be with
his wife again. The reaction from people around the world is a tribute to him.
He truly loved EVERYONE! We will miss him terribly. Thank you, President
President Hinckley is the only prophet that I can remember in my life. I loved
him and appreciated his great sense of humor and ability to connect with the
people of the world. I am so grateful to have had the priviledge of living
while he was the prophet. My sympathies go out to his family and to all of us
who loved him. Let us not forget his great teachings and honor him by living in
the way in which he so gloriously exemplified.
Dear Prophet, we will miss you. I feel a sadness in my heart but a joy knowing
you are with the Lord and your lovely wife. May your family be comforted at this
time. Thanks for sharing your beautiful testimony all these years which has been
a strength for so many. You brought smiles to many faces. You have left us with
so many wonderful memories. We love you and will remember you always.
At BYU's graduation this past April, what a treat to be sitting there, and have
the Prophet walk in with Vice-President Cheney. We were able to stand and clap
and cheer for our beloved Prophet. He truly made us want to be better, and for
that we are grateful. Thank for for your example of service. Thank you for
your love. Thank you, Hinckley family, for sharing him with us for so many
years. Our prayers are with the leaders of the church. They have our love and
A giant has departed from among us. What an amazing example, what a marvelous
man. I will sorely miss him.
He was a man that epitomized all that everyman should wish to emulate.
Regardless if you are a member of the Church or not, he was and is a great role
model.For Members of the Church, say a prayer for whomever is next
in line to fill a pair of shoes which may not be able to be adequately
filled.For non-members of the Church, as am I, pray that the next
President is one who serves in such an admirable manner as did Mr. Hinckley. One
who attempted to bridge the gap between members and non-members. One who may
strive,with God's blessings , to be a role model for all men.God
Speed, Mr. Hinckley, God Speed.JEM - Bangor, ME
He has done so much for the going forth of the gospel to the world. I am so
grateful for the courage and dedication to seek out those who haven't heard the
gospel and to enrich their lives, and bring them joy. His sense of humor will
be missed, but the memories will be in our hearts forever. He has the pure love
of christ that he showed at all times, in all things, and in all places. He is
at peace and is rejoicing with all those who have been blessed by his work on
We love President Hinckley. Thank you President Hinckley for all you gave this
Sin lugar a dudas es una perdida invaluable para la humanidad,pero un orgullo
para mi haberlo conocido y haber escuchado sus palabras despues de estrecharle
la mano. Lomas importante es recordar como vivio,y lo hizo dedicando toda su
vida a la Obra de Jesucristo,de seguro tiene un lugar en la mansion
celestial,recordemosle como lo que fue,un ejemplo para cada uno de nosotros y un
hombre que disfrutaba de su llamamiento profetico.
President Hinckley was a great example of how to live, whethere you were of the
LDS faith or not. It was remarkable how he could make friends no matter of
religion, status in life, or knowledge. It was amazing that he could easily make
friends with anybody regardless of if they were LDS, Catholic, or even Atheist.
He will be greatly missed by the entire church, but can you imagine the
reception he must have received in heaven?! He was a great man who was loved and
will be very dearly missed by millions.
A prophet of God with great vision. His exemplaty life is worthy to emulate.
Happy re-union with your wife.
President Hinckley was a great Prophet. He will be missed by millions of people.
I loved it when talked at Conferences. I send my sympathy to all his family and
everyone in the world. I am so glad we had a wonderful prophet like President
We mourn the loss of this great man and leader of the church but rejoice in his
reunion with his family and colleagues. We offer condolences to his family as
they mourn together with many around the world both inside and outside the
church."Families can be together forever."We read the
Book of Mormon with him in 2005 and were blessed as we did it.We are
very thankful for his influence on our lives in many ways and I can hear him in
my mind saying as it seemed he often said to the media about the teachings of
the church, "Isn't it wonderful!"Members of the church from the
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Stake
President Hinckley lived his life as if in the image of Savior. President
Hinckley will live on in me,as I live to be more like our Savior. I love
President Hickley for that. What a great Prophet and Sear.I know that he will be
working for us,with his beloved Marjorie, on the other side of the veil. That is
just the kind of man he is. You are loved beyond measure.
It's a sad news. He was a great prophet of the Lord and he was an instrument of
the Lord to bless to Church members throught of little temple's reveletion. I
thank to God for the President Hinckley.
Te extraremos nuestro amado Profeta .Para siempre Dios este con Vos
We have loved our dear prophet Gordon B. Hinckley and will always remember his
gentle, kind, funny, sweet , dedicated spirit! He has been an inspiration and we
have always felt the Holy Spirit when we listen to him speak. We are thankful
for his service to the church. We are awed by his life and we love him and will
miss him always! He is at peace and with his true love and our beloved Savior.
What a comfort!
Sinto uma tristeza em meu corao pela perda do profeta, um grande homem. Seu
semblante me transmitia uma paz, e seu sorriso uma segurana, que no necessitava
de palavras para sentir o espirito.
We celebrate and stand as witnesses of a life well lived in the service of God
and mankind.Let us honor his legacy by carrying on and seeing this great
work through.May God bless our Prophet and his family for his service to
us all.Thank You President Hinckley for drawing us closer to God.
What an outstanding example of class and dignity. I don't feel this is an issue
about religion, but the state of Utah lost a wonderful advocate and world lost a
humanitarian who probably did more for other people while he was Prophet than
the United States has done in the past 50 years. I don't care if you believe in
his faith or share the same opinions as members of the church but everyone
should show the same amount of class and dignity that Gordon would show anyone
else during a difficult time.
I just feel happy today: Happy he didn't have to lie in bed for a year waiting
to die, happy he is reunited with his sweet wife, and happy he was the prophet
my kids grew up with.
i am ten years old and you're the only prophet i have known and love you so much
you are always in my prayers.
President Hinckley: Thank you!
President Hinckley was a great man and I loved him very much. His life will
serve as an example for my family forever.
I feel emptiness and sadness at President Hinckley's passing, but joy at the
thought that he is now reunited with his beloved wife. This prophet and man of
God was a huge inspiration to me to do better in my life. He seemed immortal to
me and I wish he could be with us forever, although I began to sense his
mortality during his remarks at the Christmas Devotional. I know President
Hinckley is happy to be with Heavenly Father and He is happy to have our beloved
President Hinckley back home. What an incredible prophet our world has been
Thank you President Hinckley, we have teached with love; we thank his example
and energy, our lifes have been changed after to know him, we have seen an
authentic lived representantive of Jesus Christ,We hope to see you
I WORK IN A HOSPITAL ,WHEN I SAW PRES. HINCKLEY IN THE HALLS, I WOULD WAVE AND
HE WOULD WAVE TO ME WITH HIS CANE. PRES. HINCKLEY WAS A GUIDING LIGHT AND
TOUCHED EVERYONES LIFE. I LOVE YOU TILL WE MEET AGAIN.
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.
Praise to the man. President Hinckley was a prophet, seer, and revelator
unequaled in our generation.Thank you.
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.
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.
He was a great prophet and lived an honest life - that is the most thing for Rob
and I to live an honest life.
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.
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.
Thank you President Hinckley. Our hearts ache that you're no longer with us, but
we know you're with you wonderful, cute wife. We will dearly miss
I am glad for him, he needs to be with his wife now. What a wonderful, marvelous
example of service he was, what a wonderful follower of Christ. Godspeed Br.
Hinckley. I Hope to see you again!
I will miss your guidence and comfort. I lost my son just one month ago and now
I know that Scott will be with you as well as our family members. I am so
grateful to have known you and received your counsel many times. Thanks for
your love and God bless your family member that remain here on earth.
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.
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)!
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.
An excellent Prophet and an excellent man. My heart if full of joy and sadness.
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.
Our Prophet held on as does a trees last leafTo 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.
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.
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
God be with you 'til we meet again, Pres. Hinckley.
We love President Hinckley so much. We will miss him!
Thank you President Hinkley for your service. It was a great blessing in meeting
you and your lovely wife when touring the Christchurch, New Zealand Mission.
Your vision of Temple Expansion is truly amazing and has blessed many in getting
the work done. Your presence will be missed at conference, yet your spirit will
be felt every six months. "We Thank Thee O God For A Prophet".Malo

May the next president of the LDS church be as good as he was. A
great man for a great institution. We are losing all our great spiritual
leaders, who will rise up to fill their shoes?
I will miss him so much! Presdient was the Prophet that I kew for most of my
growing up years. I pray that the spirit will be with his family as the go
through this loss.
We love you. President Hinckley. You'll always be our prophet. Thank you.
What a wonderful man and prophet, he did so much for the church! He will be
missed but we rejoice in the fact that he will be with his wife once again. What
a joyful reunion it must be.
God be with you 'til we meet again. He was an amazing man and leader.
He was a very Great man and will be greatly missed. His love and guidance will
be missed, he had such a way of expressing his love for the gospel and Jesus
Christ. He was truly a gifted man. I know that he and Sister Hinckley are
together in happiness. I pray that one day we will all be there together in
love and peace. What a very sad day for the church. My prayers go out to the
family, may you feel comfort at this time.
bueno mi pesar para la familia ddel mas querido profeta de esta dispensacion de
verdad el dia en que el vino para maracaibo me emosione demasiado queria que
viniera de nevo por que su consejo su amor asia las demas persona me emosionaba
demasiado bueno el seor lo tiene a su lado en este momento
Not missed here. Sorry!
He was the first prophet that our children knew and will not be forgotten. We
love you President Hinckley!
He was the only prophet we have ever known. He was an inspiration to my family.
He is with his wife and now continues the work on the other side. He made this
world better and left us the tools to keep the work moving forward. We will not
fail. Until we meet again
i wish that didnt.now we have to have a nother Prophet
I am happy for him. He gets to be with his beloved Marjorie. Now we can look
forward to seeing him on the other side. Though I wish he could have tarried
yet a little longer here, I know He has much to do in continuing his tireless
efforts serving the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. May we all be so
blessed. To his immediate family...thank you for sharing your Dad, Grandpa,
Great-Grandpa, Uncle, Brother, Son with us. We are happy to have known him.
I truly wish for Mr.Hinkley to rest in eternal peace with his wife, whom he
obviously loved so much. I also send my sincere condolences to all the faithful
LDS who adored him. I just wish I could have seen the look on his face when he
entered heaven and saw all the Lutherans, Catholics, Baptists, etc. Even a few
LDS that he wasn't expeting to greet him. And for the all those who will blast
me for my thoughts, I am NOT a disgruntled ex LDS...just a woman who believes
that everyone who lives a Christ led life will all be together forever with God.
well, for me is a terrific lost !!! but i know with all my heart that He was a
servant of God and now he is gonna have his reward, he blesed our life with his
message, i will remember always him. i hope that all of us can have a pray for
his family and to ask to God for thy love for them. we were blesed for his work
in this dispensation. i know this, and that is my testimony
"A man of Beauty"
God bless you, President Hinckley, for your wonderful service. We love you and
will always remember your kindness and prophetic, spiritual guidance. How happy
we are for the wonderful reunion taking place on the other side fo the veil.
President Hinckley, we love you and are so glad you are at peace and reunited
with your beloved wife and the others of your family who have gone on before.
We will miss your smiling face and your wonderful sense of humor. Our prayers
are with your family and the whole church.The Tyler Family
President Hinckley was an amazing example. We will miss him but we are
overjoyed for the reunion he is having in the spirit world. May the Lord
comfort his family and his church.....
My daughters (7, 11) prayed for you and Sister Hinkley last night. You were
"their prophet" and we all love you.
What a great loss. I already miss him so very much. This morning I have thought
much about him and have committed myself to working harder to do the things he
taught us. There is no doubt of his eternal reward. May we all live as he taught
so that we can be where he now is some day.
The world is a little sadder and heaven a little gladder this day...We Thank
Thee Oh God For A Prophet!
Well-deserved eternal rest for a man who worked so hard throughout his long
life, now rejoined with his beloved wife in the arms of the Lord. Well done,
thou good and faithful servant.
I can't believe he's gone! It's a huge loss for nto only the chuch, but the
world too. At least he gets to be with his wife again. It must have been so
lonely for him. I think the church as a whole benifitted so much from his
leadership and he will be dearly missed.Rest in Peace President
Hinckley and thank you so much for everything. @---}-------
My children cried when we found out.
I solemnly testfiy that I personally know that this great and wonderful man was
truly a Prophet of God. He was one of the greatest men to ever draw breath upon
the face of this earth at any time in our history. The world has lost a giant. I
have lost a hero and a friend.
What a Grand Man! The heavens are rejoicing at his arrival as we mourn his
departure.Dan & Becky RogersMesa Az
Aw, shucks ... I'm going to miss your humorous quips. Thanks, President
Hinckley, for not retiring to an RV 32 years ago. To serve the Lord as you did
is an amazing accomplishmenet and example. You helped millions stay focussed to
the gospel and to enjoy a good laugh during general conference twice a year.
why don't you just take ONE of the messages posted....and repeat it 1,120
times?It would serve the same purpose.Sort of like
printing thousands of copies of one Hallmark Card.Hundreds of people
are struggling to word their condolences "just right," and in fact, "it just
doesn't matter."Here's one you could duplicate 1,120 times...and it
would serve the same purpose as 1,120 generic-sounding condolences. ***********We are greatly saddened by our loss of our wonderful,
kind and loving man who has held high the lamp of Christ. We shall always try to
be and do as you would have us do. God bless us all as we go forth in faith with
your incredible example. Thank you for everything - you are a great man and a
wonderful prophet. We love you very much, appreciate your untiring efforts and
wonderful soul.Through sunshine and stormy weather you have given us
courage, hope and a taste of our Father's love
This man has truly been an inspiration for all latter day saints and many other
people of the world. I had prayed that he could have remained longer with us
because of the man and the leader he was but we all knew his life was complete
and he had many on the other side waiting for him to come home. We love you
President Hinckley and thank you for what you have done in our behalf. The
world truly has been blessed by you and the work you did.Bill &

The demise of President Hinckley brought tears to my eyes, but what joy it gives
to know that he is now in the arms of his beloved, in peace, surpassing the
aches and pains of being trapped in a mortal body; to live in eternal unity with
happiness and love. What a great reunion!! Thank you President
Hinckley for your love and labor,We love you and will always miss your
Sorry to hear about the loss. I'm sure Mr. Hinkley was a good man. Would Billy
Graham, Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborne, or some of the other great Christian Leaders
who have LED MILLIONS to the saving power of the cross through Jesus Christ
receive as much fanfare?
It is an unexpected news. His life is a touchstone of righteousness, faith and
moral values that have led it to be well-known and respected throughout the
world.The strengthen the family, the construction of temples throughout
the world and missionary work are part of this valuable legacy that we leave.
During the days when the Temple was dedicated in Guayaquil, I saw and feel that
the spirit of peace that emanates from his being and have the same confidence in
my heart that I am watching the Prophet of God on Earth. Loor our beloved
What a great man and servant of Jesus Christ! We will truly miss our Prophet,
Seer and Revelator. We love you President Hinckley and are so happy that you
are reunited with your beloved wife. Your work and example have inspired us to
strive to be more Christ like. I am sure the Saviour has already spoken these
words to you, "Well done thou good and faithful servant." Your legacy will be
an eternal light to the generations who follow.
I am NOT LDS. But I wanted to say that I am very sorry for the LDS church, he
was a very good man and will be missed by all of us in Utah, LDS or not. R.I.P

I am so happy for President Hinckley and Sister Hinckley. What a great reunion
for them. I'm sad for us, but thankful we had the blessing of his guidance for
so many years.
Having recently lost my beloved Mother, my heart goes out to the family of this
great, great leader. Your loss is the greatest. He will be sorely missed by
Church members worldwide. May Heavenly Father hold us all in the hollow of His
hand at this sad time. Well done, thou good and faithful servant ... Well done,
I will miss your wonderful smile, the always present twinkle in your eyes, your
sence of humor, and the wonderful Prophet, leader, and teacher you were You
served well, and now you are with our Heavenly Father and your beloved & missed
wife Marjorie. Our love and prayers go out to your family.
We have looked to your leadership for many years and will continue to do so.
Thank you for your Christlike example and ministry. We love you!
A life well lived! We are grateful to Pres. Hinckley for all of his service and
all of his great words of wisdom. I was just wondering yesterday if he would be
able to come to the Rexburg Temple dedication, and while he won't be there in
person I am confident he will be there in spirit now. His Temple building work
continues and will continue as his legacy, one of his many legacies.Sympathy to his family and all of those who mourn.

thank you for sending gods word to most.and I love the church to the end of
life.I will love all prophets
Now I understand why President Monson didn't sound or look like himself
yesterday during our Stake conference Broadcast. There are no words that can
express the lose we will feel. President Hinckley was an example of how hard we
should all be working at what ever task we are given and to do it with viger and
humer but sted fast to what ever our father would have us do. We love you
President Hinckley and Thank you for all you did and the love and example you
A prophet to the world not just to the mormons. He will be missed by all. What
a great legacy he has left for God's children. May all of us try a little
harder to live a life similar to his. Imagine what a great place the world
would be if we were all like Gordon B. Hinckley.
We have been blessed to live during his time of leadership. He has blessed all
of our lives. Thank you President Hinckley and thank you Heavenly Father for
Giving him to us for so long.
All lives have been enriched and blessed by this great man. He has served
faithfully as a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ, and has been called
home. May we remember always his love and dedication.
I will look for you among the stars in the place where they shine brighter than
anywhere on earth and read your words often to feel your spirit and testimony.
Go President, on to your eternal reward!
I met him once in Pusan, Korea when I was a culture- shocked, bewildered new
missionary. His upbeat, down-to-earth demeanor gave me a tremendous lift that
has stayed with me since that day in 1975. I feel as if I have lost a true
Thank you for touching our lives in such a positive way. You always will be
remembered as a Temple builder, strenghth to our families, so humble on guiding
us on the Lord's path, your inspired leadership, all the love you had for
all.We are sad to loose you but happy that you are with your sweet wife,
now for eternity.We will always love you and miss you.
We were fortunate to have such a Prophet for so long. Now he is with his dear
President Hinckley was the prophet of my transition from youth to adulthood.
I'll always remember the love I felt every time I heard him speak. His love of
the Savior and love of the church members are his greatest legacy. He never
wanted acclaim or reward. He sincerely loved all the taught and served. How I
miss him and wish to emulate his service.I remember his sermon at
the 2004 General RSMeeting. He said, "Until I got older I never dreamed of what
a demanding responsibility it is to keep food in the pantry, to keep clothing
neat and presentable, to buy all that is needed to keep a home running. I see
their [his granddaughter's] husbands, and I feel like saying to them:
'Do you know how much she does?' Well, you dear women, I say thanks to you.
Thank you for being the kind of people you are and doing the things you do."
I've always remembered that comment and if I ever felt overwhelmed
by the many responsibilities of a Mother I'd say to myself, "President Hinckley
thanks me. He appreciates that work I do." And I would feel better. Thank you
We will greatly miss President Hinckley. We have loved and revered him as a
prophet of God. His leadership has richly blessed our family here in Middle
Thank you President Hinckley for the energy you always had. We love you.
Last night Heaven became a more beautiful place. I am so happy to think that
he's reunited with his wife again. He missed her so much. I will miss
President Hinckley!! It makes me sad to think we'll never again hear one of
your wonderful talks. Well, at least not in this life...
o senhor sabe de todas as coisas... e uma coisa que sei que o presidente
foi e sempre ser um homem maravilhoso.obrigada senhor por ter vindo a
terra em uma poca que pude conhecer o trabalho de um homem muito especial... com
carinho e saudades... gabisud!!(Brasil-RJ,Itagua)
What an amazing man who brought the world the truth through so many different
avenues. He will be missed until we meet again! Praise to the man!
What an incredible man and prophet of God! You are so loved and will be missed
by so many of us President Hinckley! Thank you for all you did and the counsel
that you gave us while you were here on this earth - may we live worthy and
remember your words. I can only imagine the welcome home you are receiving from
our Saviour and Heavenly Father! Well done thou good and faithful servant!
I was baptized into The Church on January 15, 1995, so Howard W. Hunter was my
first Prophet, but given the fact that he died so soon after I was baptized I
never really "got to know him" very well. It was different with President
Hinckley. He's been the Prophet my entire marriage, and during all of my
children's lives. Ever since I heard of his passing "Til We Meet Again" has
been playing over and over in my head, and it's so appropriate given the plan of
salvation that all LDS share we will all be together again one day. I'm sure
that he and Sister Hinckley are rejoicing in their reunion today. We love you
President Hinckley and we'll miss your sweet disposition dearly.With
Much Love to the Hinckley Family in their time of grief,Ann Marie
Sad new for us but I can only imagine the applause on the other side. I am sure
that so many were as happy to see him again as we were sad to lose him. He will
Sei que ele sempre estara em nossos coraao!!
It is hard to be sad when talking about a caliber of man who blessed our lives
so much as he is among many other great leaders of the Church. The Savior lives
and is truly the Head of the Church. However, President Hinckley will be missed
here and will forever be remembered as an inspiring example of someone who
exercised extraordinary faith.
I am so SAD.....He was a wonderful prophet and person. He was the best expamle
not only for the memebrs but for everyone.He will be missed....
He led us in rightousness. "And they shall rise up and call him blessed". He has
now gone home.
President Hinkley was a Prophet of God and truley acted like one. My life and
the life of my children have been blessed by his example and great leadership.
I will be praying for his family.
We are saddened at the news of Pres. Hinckley's death. Our father knew him
personally and played with him as a child. What a wonderfull life he led and
what a great example to all of us. May our Father in Heaven bless and comfort
My life has been strengthened so much by President Hinckley's courage, faith,
love, humor and example. I am thankful he is with Marjorie again and all the
others he will be meeting. I also feel close to him. He has helped our family to
carry on and stand a little taller. It is a truly a prophet.
He was such a kind person and great example. He made me feel like he was my own
Grandpa giving freely of his wisdom and insight. He always made me feel loved.
I will miss his humor and inspiration. We thank Thee oh God, for a Prophet!
I am sad to see him pass to the next station of life yet I celebrate his life
and know that he is still involved with the preparation of the return of the
Savior. We will see him again I'm certain.Let's dedicate our lives
as he dedicated his, in service to others.
We wore you out! Thank you for your love, efforts and example. May we ever try
harder! My thanks to the Hinckley family for opening up your private lives and
sharing all that you are and try to be. We love you ALL! Praise be to Heavenly
Father for his tender mercy...Gordon Bitner Hinckley, a blessed Prophet.
We have fond memories of President Hinckley's visit to Chicago. His mark on the
church and the world still will be evident decades from now. He was a man
unafraid to say what God wanted him to. Bless him for that.
Good bye, President Hinckley, I will be glad to tell my kids what you had taught
In the world we live in, our faith is always being questioned. If only our
critics could see the love that WE ALL have, maybe they could understand us a
little better. Please, don't ever forget this love. Your comments brought me to
tears, and I know no one could read this without feeling the spirit. How firm
our foundation, and we thank thee oh God for a prophet who led us in these
In my life time, I have never met a man that has touched my life as much as he
touched mine with his words of wisdom, his amazing sense of humor, his
compassion for the peoples of the World. How great shall be your joy President
Hinckley as you now meet your loving Savior. I Love you my dear Prophet and
hero. You will live in all of us ..as we Go Forward in Faith.
President Hinckley was a great leader. He taught us so many things. He also
was a great example of spirituality with a sense of humor. He was a prophet for
our time. God be with you 'til we meet again.
My wife and I are saddened by his death. But death is part of life, part of that
wonderful plan. We will always remember his leadership, the principles
taught and emphasized, and the joy he brought in our lives. He helped us to draw
ourselves much closer to God. My wife and I will also remember how he made us
smile during conferences.We know that he is now with his wife, reunited happily
again. He will always be a living inspiration for us. Truly a man of God
President Hinckley was solid as a rock in these times of uncertainty and I will
miss his smile and his wonderful sence of humor. My testimony and my faith are
stronger as I have listened and learned from the council he has given the church
and the world. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better person and to love
others as Christ loves them. We will meet again, until then have a wonderful
reunion with your family, loved ones and our Savior.
Thanks for President Hinckley for your life!!! your exemple, you words!!! We
love you!!! Ns do Brazil o amamos muito, obrigado por sua dedicao e por seu
amor!!! Nos vemos em breve!!!
Conference will never be the same. You were a great inspiration to us all.
Especially those of us who like to say a joke.
What a wonderful man, he will be greatly missed. As a convert to the church he
has been an inspiration and the only Prophet I have known. He is with his
eternal companion once again.
President Hinckley will be missed by all. The world has lost a great prophet
and example, yet we look forward to following the next prophet with the same
dedicationto move the work forward. Best wishes to the Hinkley family, you are
in our prayers at this time of loss.
When President Hinckley was sustained as President of the Church, the Spirit
bore powerful witness to me that he was a prophet of the Lord. That distinct
witness has stayed with me ever since.Mere words could never express
the feelings of my heart this morning. He has impacted my life, and the lives of
so many others, for incalculable good. This disciple of Jesus will be dearly
Thank you so much for what you did.
President Hinckley was the Prophet of God. I had the chance to personally hear
him speak on several occasions, from Ricks College, to a Mission Conference, to
General Conference. What memorable opportunitites those were. Lets go forward
with Faith, just as he has gone forward into the next life!
Thank you President Hinckley! I was so proud of you as leader of our Church.
Thank you for your loving warmth. May we all take courage from your example and
strive to live as you did, full of joy and love of the Lord.
Beloved prophet, humanitarian and servant of our Father in Heaven. Our family
loved you dearly, and you will be missed.
This is sad for us, but is a happy moment for our beloved prophet as he reunites
with his beautiful wife, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and many others. I
will always cherish his sweet spirit and will remember the love he had for ALL
of us for the rest of my life. What a remarkable man, leader, husband, father
and friend. I hope and pray that we can all strive to emulate his teachings and
compassion for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
My Prophet, My Prophet Father...I am so deeply grateful for him. He has endured
and now has his reward. He is welcomed home by his beloved wife. Loss and sorrow
fill me, yet I rejoice for him. All is well, all is well. The Gospel of Jesus
Christ is true, all is well!
Thank you for your special witness of our Savior Jesus Christ. You have touched
our lives with your service and devotion. Our conversion is sweeter, our belief
in Christ stronger. How happy are we for your sweet reunion this morning with
Sister Hinkley, your remarkable family members, and close associates! Your
legacy will shine forth as a beacon to usher the Church -- this great work of
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -- into the future lives of
those who will come to know Jesus Christ, his truth and doctrine, and his work
upon the earth. You will be greatly missed, our beloved prophet and friend, Ken,
Jacqueline, Jeffrey, and Juliana Riggs.
We shared our love and appreciation to the prophet in tonight's FHE. We missed
Thanks for your life Presidente Hinckley, your words, your exemple!!! Ns do
Brazil o amamos muito!!! Em breve nos encontraremos!!!
RIP Prophet Hinckley thanks for all your hard work you did on this earth and
Gbless your family during this time. Ja
We are deeply sad for the loss of our beloved Prophet and grateful for his
service to the Lord. He has been such a wonderful example to us all. Our
prayers and love go out to his family.
I will miss you. May we honor your memory by doing those things you asked us to
do. You are a wonderful man and I thank you for your dedication and leadership.
We thank thee oh God for our prophets!!!!Pres. Hinckley we will miss you.
carry on brother.we love you...
I will miss you. May we honor your memory by following those ideals which you
taught us. Thank you President Hinckley for your love, and for directing this
great church. Thank you for furthering the work.
Thank you, President Hinckley for your wonderful guidance, your Christlike love,
your optimism, your incredible lifelong example of what a Christian truly is!
What a priviledge it has been to know you, one of the "Great and Noble" of
Heavenly Father's children! Until we meet again with those who love in faith and
truth in worlds without end, may you and your family be eternally blessed! You
will be greatly missed! Now we need to "forget ourselves and go to work!"
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.
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.
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.The Bunker familyClearfield, Utah
I thank God for men such as you and I thank you for the counsel you have given
me. Farewell until we meet again.
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!
What an incredrible example to the world. You will live on in the hearts of
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
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!
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
We Thank Thee oh God for a Prophet!President Hinckley was in my
opinion one of the greatest men the world has ever known.God Bless
To picture the tender greeting with Sister Hinckley and other loved ones not to
mention the Savior, our hearts are full and convictions strong. How grateful we
are for the example of President Hinckley in demonstrating absolute
faithfulness. Our prayers are with his surviving family and the Brethren who
undoubtedly feel more deeply than we can imagine. The Oliver family,
Newport News, VA
Please accept our condolences to President Hinckleys family and to all of those
who loved him throughout the world. He was a man whose love of God showed
through his words and actions. President Hinckley was truly a prophet of God
He was a true profet of the Lord. He served following the steps of the Savior.
The world missed a marvelous man. He inspired us to be better.For sure the
Lord will confort the Hincley'sOliveira Family

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 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.
Only positive things can be said of President Hinckley. What an incredible man
and leader! He can now be reunited with his wonderful wife.
Thanks President Hinckley for your very great example of working until the end
of this mortal life, my Family and me will remember you always.Ezequiel

Presidente Hinckey, lo vamos a extraar mucho, fue muy importante para nuestras
vidas, tuvimos la oportunidad de conocerlo personalmente en slc, fue un ejemplo
para todos, y especialmente para nuestra familia. gracias por todoTeresita, Pedro, Rosario, Lucia y Josefina
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.
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...
NOTHING I COULD SAY WOULD EVER BEGIN TO EXPRESS THE LOVE AND RESPECT ,I FEEL FOR
PRESIDENT HINKLEY,HOW THE ANGELS ARE REJOYCING THAT SUCH A DEDICATED SON OF THE
LIVING GOD HAS RETURNED ,LEAVEING SUCH A POSITIVE MARK UPON MANKIND. THANK YOU,
AND GOD SPEED,PRESIDENT HINKLEY.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.Lance Bryce FamilyAvondale, AZ
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.
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!
All the members of the branch in Shanghai China will miss President Hinckley.
What a wonderful Prophet.
God be with you until we meet again.
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.
A sad, but necessary step. He was a very humble man.
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
When he was called as a counselor in 1981 (when I was 11), little did he know
how the impact he would have on all of our lives! He has been around for
soooooo long, and we love him so much!! He will be truly missed! We Thank Thee
oh God for a Prophet!! Our thoughts & prayers will be with the
Hinckley family at this time...
This was a good, good, man. We were blessed to have him with us for so long.
We are so grateful for his life of service. We love and praise this great
Prophet of our Heavenly Father. Livesay Family in Virginia
What a wonderful man and example of how we should all live. His humble attitude
and beautiful words touched the heart of my husband and he made the decision to
enter the waters of baptism. We are an eternal family now. He will be missed.
Our prayers are with his family and all of the leaders of the church. His
earthly voice may be silenced so a time but I take grear comfort in the
knowledge of what he may be doing and who is has been reunited with at this
We Love you our Prophet and thank you for all that you did for us. I sang " We
thank thee Oh God for a Prophet" last night when we heard the news. We will
truly miss you! We pray for your family and hope they will be able to bare this
with the strength of God above. Take care our Friend..... Know that we love you
A nice man...on the surface but was so misled and misled so many people. You
that are able to read this...Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords, He
alone is the true Son of God and occupies the right side of the throne of His
Father. Only in Jesus Christ is true salvation found, only through His blood is
there forgiveness of sins. There is no other way in which to be reconciled unto
God. Jesus Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life and no man comes
to the Father but through ME." Today Gordon Hinckley knows the Truth that could
have set him free. There is no other way!!! God demonstrated His love to this
world through His Son and only through His Son, Jesus Christ. Don't argue with
me if you don't agree...its God who ordained His plan of salvation.
Today our Grandson, Micheal Garner gave his Missonary farewell talk on the very
day his beloved Prophet ended his mission. What a great and glorious day it
is.My they both find the love amd welcome they seek when they arrive where the
Lord has called them. Our prayers have been answered blessed be the lord and his
servents. Enhoy your journey.
Yo se que El es un Profeta de DIOS que fue al encuentro de su compaera eterna y
a encontrarse cara a cara con el Salvador, se que DIOS vive que esta es su
iglesia, que JESUCRISTO es mi salvadoragrdezco al Pte. Hinckley su amor y
dedicacion a la obra del Seor en estos tiempos, su legado es inmenso, ojala
todos los miembros del mundo sepan apreciarlo, en el nombre de JESUCRISTOAMEN
Our lives (my wife & I) have been greatly uplifted because of President
Hinckley's spiritual leadership... Brother & Sister William F. Dixon-Raleigh,
President Hinckley shines as an example to all of us. Farewell, President
Hinckley, and thank you.
I am so grateful to have lived under his guidance and leadership. I am very
happy that he is reunited with his beloved wife. How joyous their reunion. God
We loved him and know he was ready to be with his wife. Bless the Hinckley
Family, we love you too!
Our lives are far better for knowing and learning from this great man. May we
all strive to follow his wonderful example.May God bless you and our
great church President Hinckley!
As I sit here the tears run down my cheeks for the loss of a man who has been
the standard of life. I know that other great men called by the Lord will take
his place but his loss leaves a great hole in my life. I have seen many prophets
come and go in my life, each one leaving a great legacy but President Hinckley
has given much to church members and to the world that has made it a better
place for all of us. I love you President Hinckley.
Gordon B Hinckley looked at life with faith and confidence. He quoted often II
Tim 1.7 that God has not given us the spirit of fear but of faith and of a sound
mind. Each person who lives here on earth stands for something whether good or
evil. Pres Hinckley stood for consistency to DO the Lord's work as he was called
forth to do (Jhn 15.16). His life, when younger, was forged out of the
Depression Era. His children remember how he chronicled life in ref to the
Depression Era and I think that lead to his optimism that things could always be
worse than they are today as he reflected on harder times. He was one to turn
his heart to his fore bearers and to remember them as he exemplified back in
1997 at the 150 yr celebration of the pioneers into the SL Valley during the
days of 1847. He would want us each of us to step out into the STIFF wind of
opportunity rather than to just hunker down and do nothing. Each of the 15
prophet's lives, in this dispensation, is like a favorable Westerly wind for
each of us, rAm
gracias por todo te amamos y te extraaremos.
Another corner turned. So many left behind. A sweet reunion and happy day.
It was his eyes that verified to me, almost a year ago now, that this church and
gospel are not only true, but also gave me the resounding answer that yes, this
church is truely led by a Prophet of God. I will always feel like President
Hinckley was my prophet, the one there specially for me to answer tough
questions like this. I have a great sense of peace in my faith that he is where
he needs to be right now and that the next prophet that is called will carry on
from where he left off.
His teachings were powerful and life changing. His life is an example to all
mankind. Though we miss You President, we dont regret because your life was
wonderfully spent. A true prophet of a true and restored church of our Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ.
I am both broken hearted at President Hinckley's death and grateful for his
life. He left this world a better place than he found it, and the world mourns
his loss. My favorite personal memory of him was in NYC at Radio
City when the performing LDS youth, not wanting him to leave, spontaneously
began singing "God be with You." Pres. Hinckley stopped his exit, turned
around, and led the singing with his cane. We all felt loved.Mariano'sNew Jersey
We are so Grateful that we had a Great Prophet as Gordon B Hinkley was. We will
miss Him and will keep his memory in our hearts. We pray for strenght and
comfort for his Children. What a great faith we have to know that Families are
Forever. God has blessed us with a Great Prophet.
What startling news, I guess that we thought he would just keep going for ever.
The world has suffered a great loss, but have been so blessed to have had this
wonderful selfless man and prophet of the Lord with us. What a model of
righteousness. We will miss him.
We will really miss President Hinckley!He has been the prophet during all our
childrens growing up years. We know he is at peace now and truly had a beautiful
reunion with his dear wife Marjorie.They were both a joy in inspiration in all
of our lives.God be with you till we met again!
A man I have always cheerished and respected as a true and faithful servant of
our dear Heavenly Father. Goodbye President, we shall me at the throne of our
Messiah Jesus Christ.
What a remarkable man who will greatly be missed. I can't imagine the reunion
that was held on the other side last night. President Hinckley was a great
example to the world.
While I have sometimes dissagreed with some of the think Pres. Hinkley has said,
I cannot dispute the wonderful works he has done. And from myself and my
fiancee April, our prayers are with his family.And we all look foreward to
joining himm when it's our turn to pass through the vail
He'll live forever in our hearts. He blessed much the Brazilian people and we'll
be always grateful.Rio, Brazil
We will miss the greatest man of our generation. Thank you for your great work
and example you have set. We Love you and Will Miss You. Till we meet
again!!Shawver Family Beavercreek, Ohio

We are grateful for his life of loving service, hard work and selfless
devotion--and happy for his reunion with his sweetheart!
I enjoyed your sense of humor and wit. I am glad your with your beloved
Marjorie. I extend sympathy to your family, the quorum of 12, and all members
of the church as we move on to another prophet of God.
Thank you President Hinckley. As a youth he is the only one I will have many
memories of him. When I heard this last night I instantly was filled with tears.
He was a truly a amazing and inspiring man.
I'm a Roman Catholic who respects your Church very much! I am so sad to hear of
the passing of your President. I offer sympathy to the entire LDS family!
Ns o amamos e teremos eternas saudades.

I am not LDS, but I so admired President Hinckley and I was greatly saddend to
read this news. I was drawn to him by his wit and kindness and know that he is
now in the arms of God.
President Hinckley was truly a prophet of God. We are very grateful and been
truly blessed to have lived in a time of his dedicated service to members of the
Church worldwide. We have been inspired in many ways by his leadership and
guidance, and especially studying his many inspired talks in general
conferences. You will be greatly missed by many who have come to love and honour
you Pres. Hinckley. Your teachings and words of counsel will stay with us
forever. God bless your family.Tofa Soifua, ia manuia le malaga!The

I am sad but SO happy that he is reunited with his Savior and his dear sweet
wife.My prayers are with his family.
It is a great lose indeed that our president is no more. I will always remember
him for his good advice. May has soul rest in peace with the Lord.
How sweet all your reunions will be. Thank you for your wonderful example and
dedication to the Lord.
Wow....one thousand comments so far, and not one of them is unusual or
interesting. Just cliches....a mish-mash of words like "wonderful" and "will be
missed" and stuff like that. I posted an interesting comment earlier this
evening, but I knew there was no way that it (or this) would be posted...Because
it is unusual, and it is interesting.As for Gordon B. Hinckley, he
now realizes how many Mormons are actually pretentious
fakers...pseudo-Mormons....he notices that out of one thousand comments here so
far, not one single one them mentions the Book of Mormon.
What a wonderful lifetime of devotion and example. He will be so missed but so
remembered. Our prayers are with his precious family who supported and shared
him with the entire world. Our prayers are also with our new church leadership.
May the many who will hear of the passing President Hinckley have a greater
desire to learn the goodness and peace that comes from hearing and following the
words of a living prophet.
What a kind, giving, loving Prophet. He always gave of himself in the Lord's
work. After all these years of working for the Lord, how appropriate that he
was called home to the Lord on the Sabbath. The Lord's day of rest. We will
miss you and all you stood for. We thank your wife, Marjorie, and the rest of
your family for sharing you with us. You impacted us all and we do Thank God
for a Prophet.
Thank you Pres. Hinckley for being a true prophet of God. Thanks for your
unwavering faith, your humor, warmth and love. Thanks for having touched my
life! Youve been such an outstanding example and will be greatly missed.
We will miss him so much but I know that he is doing fine. He must be very happy
to be reunited with sister Hinckley. I'm so glad that we all had the
chance to get to know President Hinckley. We will never forget him!
God be with you 'til we meet again! Thanks so much President Hinckley!
I am saddened for our loss of a wonderful Prophet, Seer, and Revelator, but
rejoice in knowing that he was well recieved by Heavenly Father and Jesus
Christ, and his family. My prayers go to his family here on earth that the Lord
will bless them with peace. I know that the Lord will direct the Elders of the
Church in confirming our new Prophet, Seer and Revelator.How wonderful it
is to have a small taste of how many people of this world loved him. What a
great idea it would be to record everyone's comments and be able to present it
to Pres. Hinckley's family. So that their generations to come will know what a
wonderful man he is and was.
walk the walk everyday in everyway..not just general conference ..then back to
your ways. that's what brings your good church down. times are changing fast and
nature is giving her warning, look for what this man was trying to help with.
pray , help each other along the way. Just look at SLC and how vast it has
become ..stay safe!
I love President Hinckley. I thank God for THIS prophet!
We will miss this great man of God, a Prophet and servant of Christ. We should
honor his life by serving and loving each other.
Let us all join together and honor the man who gave us so much by being better
Latter-day Saints and people. His legacy will outlive us all! Let us attend the
temple and keep our covenants. We love you President Hinckley!!
Thank you President Hinkley for your example of living the way the Christ wants
us to live. We hope everyday to "Do the very best that we can". We love you!
We thank Thee O God for this prophet! Our prayers and thoughts are with the
Pres Hinkley will always be the prophet of my youth. I will never forget his
example, resolve, love, work ethic, faith, and admonitions as the Lords prophet
here on earth. His efforts have touched, and will continue to touch, the lives
of millions. I will greatly miss him.
"We Thank Thee O God For A Prophet ..... To Guide Us In These Latter Days"
In 2002, we were able to attend the last dedicatory session of the Nauvoo
temple. My 10-year-old daughter's heart's desire at Nauvoo was to meet and shake
hands with the prophet, which we didn't think very likely. The day
following the dedication, we returned to the temple to take pictures. When we
arrived, President and Sister Hinckley were exiting the temple. Among all that
crowd behind the barricade, Sister Hinckley noticed my daughter, nudged her
husband, and said, "Aren't you going to shake that little girl's hand?"
President Hinckley walked toward my daughter, invited her past the barricade,
and took her hand in his. He asked her name, and then asked where she was from.
When she told him she was from Utah, he looked surprised, raised an eyebrow and,
with a twinkle in his eye, exclaimed, "Utah! Where's that?"God bless
our prophet dear.Anne FlindersOrem, Utah
We feel sadness for the loss of our beloved Prophet but feel comforted by the
knowledge that he is now reunited with his eternal companion. He can now
continue the work on the other side of the veil.My prayers will go
out to his family.
Just getting the news in Scotland. Heartbreaking for us, mixed with joy for him.
His guidance and leadership has influenced our lives forever.
Truly a Great Phrophet of this dispensation. A great man with a great heart and
love for the members.Thank you for guiding us and ever uplifting us. May you find great Joy with your loved ones where your work will continue with
just as much love and dedication that you demonstrated here in this life.God Bless.
We express our sincere sorrow to President Hinckley's loving family at home,
within the church and in the worldwide community to which he dedicated his
life's work. He is a great prophet and a remarkable man. He will be missed here
and yet welcomed joyously on the other side.
So many accomplishments, highly esteemed in the eyes of men.... But for all he
did, he never led a soul to Christ. He led them to a Church. A man made, human
controlled and operated organization. He never possessed real Bible Salvation.
And like most he'll be preached into heaven by other men. mean to say? no, just
the plain truth.
So long dear friend. Until we meet again. God bless you.
What a great man of God that has left this world so much the better. What a
tribute and honor to him to see so many people share so many kind words about
this incredible person. Thanks for your leadership and love!
What a sad day for the Church and the world; your leadership and strength will
be missed.Thanks for helping all of us ... stand a little taller,
rise a little higher, and be a little better. We love you!
He has been always special to me. He was a inspiration to us all. He set great
and wonderful examples for rest of my family. when I found out that he passed
away, and I told my children and I cried right away. It helps them to understand
how important our prophet was to me. We knelt together to pray for his family to
be comforted tonight. Our love goes out to his families and close friends. He
passed away peacefully and went off to be with his wife. We will always remember
him and keep him in our hearts.. We love you, President Hinckley..
I love the sound of his voice, his unique inflection, I always knew he loved us.
I would like to have him forever, but we knew he would leave soon. He is no
longer the last leaf on the tree, and it is now still and calm. I would have
liked to be present at his home coming, what a grand event.Thank You
President Hinckley. Love the Edgar family
We love you President Hinckley. Thank you so much for the love you showed to us.
Thank you for your hard work. You have blessed the lives of millions. I look up
to you with all my heart. Continue to serve President Hinckley! The Lord has
great plans in store for you still. Thanks again for the love you've spread
throughout the world and especially for the love that you entered into my heart.
We love you. Live well
This was the only prophet I can remember since I am a youth. I absolutely adored
president Hinckley and I will miss his talks, spirit he brings everywhere with
him, his humor and much more. He has done so much for the church and I just
want to say I love him and I will miss him. Now he is with his wife and family
that has passed on before. President Hinckley, I will miss you and thanks for
all you have done for me and my family. You are an amazing man!
The shock came through to this part of the world on a Monday morning. We
couldn't believe what has been forwarded to us from numerous related emails, but
that was all because Pres. Hinckley was ever so vibrant, lively and loving and
it was strange to think of him as someone who has passed away. We would sadly
miss him, but at the same time we are sure that he is now in good hands. Thank you, Prophet, for all your have done for the Church and for the
I keep imagining his excitement at seeing Sister Marjorie again and his
eagerness to meet Joseph Smith and the other great leaders of our dispensation.
I know I should not be sad, but nevertheless I am. Saints all over South
africa awoke to the news early this morning and my cellphone never stopped for
an hour. President Hinckley was loved and revered the world over.
