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.

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.


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.


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 Bitner Hinckley in my opinion was one of the greatest phrophets along with Joseph Smith. He will be sorely missed.


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 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 prayerful

I 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.

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!

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.

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.

God bless the Hinkly family. Our thoughts, and hearts go out to you. God bless the prophet of God. We miss him.

Ted Rees

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".

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 Prophet!

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.

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.
