We all love president Hinckley and will miss him very much!

Bob Allen Lequia

I personally never had the opportunity to meet President Hinckley but I have seen him on television on several occasions and felt of the Holy Ghost penetrate through him. Now he is with his beloved Marjorie. I can just picture Sister Hinckley saying something like "What took you so long?" May he and his family be blessed forever more.


YOu meant so much to me I have fallen from the church along time ago but the impact you have made in my life Honestly meant more to me then any treasure I wrote him a letter once and sent it with my Friend who was meeting him through make a wish foundation it was a 3 page letter Talking to him about all the things i was struggling with Telling him about my Family Bearing my testimony Pooring my Heart to him He responded By Adressing it in General Confernce that same year NOt missing one point in my letter It meant more to me then anything any one has done to me in my life ive since fallen from the church but still belief it to be true but i cant live up to the standards But he held a part of my heart ever since then i cried for 2 hours today when i heard it and the tears havent stoped flowing i shall miss hearing your jokes and inspritional words. The impact you make on one person can affect more then a million people so make it a good one. I know you did

What an awesome and influential man he was. He lived a long and righteous life, and while we mourn his loss we celebrate his sweet return home.

Although I didn't personally know President Hinckley, I feel as if I've lost a loving friend. I will especially miss his refreshing sense of humor and his unquenchable testimony of God's latter-day work.

My husband and I cried when we heard the news and then we rejoiced for President Hinckley, his mission on earth is complete. He was such an example as to how we need to live our lives and we are greatful and blessed to have had such a great and beloved Prophet. Our prayers are with the Hinckley family. We will miss you President Hinkley.

Another Prophet gone but not forgotten. Our love and prayers go out to the family.


My wife and I feel the same as you all. We will miss President Hinckley but we know he is very happy to be with his Majorie. what a great example! I would recommend reading one of his most influential books "Standing for Something." Amazing bok written by an amazing man, a inspiring leader and a good friend.

Steven Hinds, Sacramento, CA

As an 18 year old, I attended General Conference when President Hinkley was first sustained as a General Authority. I was later present when he was sustained as the church Prophet and President. I have followed him through his years as a General Authority and marveled at how he brought us all closer to the Lord through his loving example and steady message. I know that I am a better person because of him. We miss you President Hinkley.

Yukari and Christopher

We thank thee our Great God for our wonderful Prophet. He has been a blessing to each and everyone of us and will be missed. But we know that the work will continue on and we must continue on in President Hinckley's footsteps. He was a man of honor, a man of virtue, a man of truth, a man of God. Let us all press forward with a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all his children. Let us continue the work the President Gordon B Hinckley has set for us for it is God's work. We join with the rest of the world in thanking God for President Gordon B. Hinckley. Yours in Christ...

so strange

a living "prophet" who was actually a church bureaucrat.

Mormons are indeed a weird people.
