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.

nuestras condolencias a la Familia Hinckey,

Brad and Michelle

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.


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.

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.


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.


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!

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 family, too.

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 opportunity
He 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 too
I 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


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.

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!

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!


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!!!


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.

Craig from NC

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
