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!!!

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.

I am so sad, at our great loss,I Loved Pres. Hinckley. He is now happy with those who went before him!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Sorry.Not because he's anything special in my life, but recently someone died who was close to me too.

Jason

A true example of enduring to the end! God bless President Hinckley

Jason Tolman

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 FAITH.

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.

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.

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

Fredericks, Monmouth Oregon

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....
