We will truly miss you! you were a wonderful leader and man. Now you can be with your sweet wife. You have been blessed with a wonderful life.


We thank thee, O God, for a prophet
To guide us in these latter days.
We thank thee for sending the gospel
To lighten our minds with its rays.
We thank thee for every blessing
Bestowed by thy bounteous hand.
We feel it a pleasure to serve thee
And love to obey thy command.

I Will miss Pres. Hinckley

President Hinkley will be missed by many. I didn't personally know him, but it felt like he was a great friend. How we will greatly miss him, but we also rejoice in his passing into the arms of the Savior, the heavens will surely be singing hyms of happiness.


For most of our lives President Hinckley has been the prophet. He is the prophet that we had while we made the most important decisions of our lives. We appreciate all he has done and all the great revelation he gave and teachings. It is sad to see him go, yet a happy time for him to be re-united with his sweet wife. We love you President Hinckley and know that you are just entering another phase of our eternal progression.

I'm so happy he will finally be with his wife again. He loved her so much. He was a friend to many, and spent his life serving the world. He was so good, so pure. A more Christ-like person I have yet to meet. I miss him already.

I am 10 years old and just wanted to say that I'm sad that he is no longer our prophet, but glad he can be with his wife in Heaven.

president hinckley will be missed, I thank him for his devotion and optimistic spirit, he was a great man, I dont evn have to mention it. He was a blessing to this church, the prophet of God.


When we told our six-year old son that President Hinckley had died, he asked us why we didn't pray earlier so he wouldn't die. He told us that he was very sad that President Hinckley had died. We explained to him that President Hinckley died of old age and that the prophet was now with his wife and others whom he loved, just not here on with us. This helped ease his sadness. And it helped also to relieve the sadness, yet bring in comfort to all of the children in our family.
