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.

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 well pleased".

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.

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.

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 wondeful life.

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.

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.

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 man.

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.

He was such a Christlike man, truly His mouthpiece here on earth. The church will continue on, but we will miss him dearly.

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 his family.

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 Monson.

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
