I will miss President Hinkley for all that he has done in spreading the Gospel thru out the world. With helping to buildlng the temples as they are spotted thruout the world. I am gratful for all that he has done for the Church Of Latter Day Saints.


No one can augue that this man did not live a life of service. He loved everyone and that love reflected in everything he did. I am sad for his family but happy for his sweet wife. My belief is that they are together today - what a reunion!!

I am most grateful the Lord allowed him to be with us so long. I have learned so much about the Kingdom Of God from him. He will be joyously received on the other side by his lovely wife and all the great ones of the Kingdom. He is truly one of the greatest prophets that ever lived.

What a great man! I am deeply touched by his life of service. I hope his life can be an inspiration to others to dedicate their lives in the service of God. I mourn his death, and my thoughts are towards his family that they may find comfort. I know that he was God's prophet on the earth and that he had personal communications with our Lord, Jesus Christ....now he is back home in the presence of his dear wife and friends that passed on before him. He is in the presence of his friend and master, Jesus Christ. I am sure that Jesus will say to him: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." There is no doubt in my mind, and I am sure that the world could agree with me that Jesus will say it to this great man: "Well done, my servant, Gordon!" I love President Hinckley. He will be greatly missed and I hope to meet him someday after I die. May we all think on his example and hope to be with him in the realms above. Make the choice today to repent and serve God with all your whole soul!

We shall mourn and comfort those who mourn, but rejoice in the knowledge that he Lives. As with Profits of old, he has served the Lord well.

Enos 1: 26
26 And I saw that I must soon go down to my grave, having been wrought upon by the power of God that I must preach and prophesy unto this people, and declare the word according to the truth which is in Christ. And I have declared it in all my days, and have rejoiced in it above that of the world.

Me ha causado profunda tristeza, el fallecimiento del profeta vidente y revelador de nuetro Salvador Jesucristo, el presidente Hinckley. Sin duda recibir su galardon y coronas de gloria sobre su cabeza por sevir con humildad y mansedumbre. Dios le bendiga y a sus familiares que les sobrviven.

Bishop Lonnie C. Kyser

President Hinckley is a man who Loves Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ more than anything else. You felt that love and devotion whenever he spoke. You were lifted by his faith, humor, and eternal optimism. I llok forward to the day when we will all meet again in that great heavenly home. I testify to the world that Gordon B. Hinckley is a beloved prophet of God and will be loved forever by the people whose lives he touched. May we each be blessed to carry on with this great work and faithfully serve as we have seen our beloved prophet serve. As I have loved you love one another. Remember everyone can make a difference.

Justin Masters

I have been blessed to have met Pres. Hinckley and even exchanged humor with him (he easily bested me).

Having been close to interfaith relations years ago, Pres. Hinckley did MUCH to bring the church and its members out of obscurity, and also challenged its members to do good continually in service to our fellow man. His efforts will continue to be a springboard for us as an example of Christ-like service, looking for the positive in all around us, and making the world a better place.

I will miss you, dear prophet
-For your candor and wit in your message of the potential within each of us to excel in all that we do, and to never dwell on discouragement, but to look upwards and onwards.

-For your humility and grace in serving tirelessly and without complaint, even when the weight of the presidency rested upon you during previous leaders' infirmities.

-For bringing temples and the related blessings so much closer to the saints.

-For bringing the blessings of the gospel to greater light in the world.

You leave behind a legacy of hope and love... for us to carry on. Thank you... for so many things.

Word cannot describe how sad I feel that I will no longer be able to hear his counsel in the next General Conference this year. however, I will always be grateful to have had such a wonderful living Prophet in our time, may God bless him and keep him, may God bless his family.....God be with you till we meet again.
Thankyou for the wonderful memories you have left us,and what an example you have been to all young and old.

I will miss Pres Hinckley very much, but I know he is where he is suppose to be. I loved him very much and will always remember the "B's" he developed. My prayers are with his family at this time. What a valiant prophet and servant to Heavenly Father as with everyone. He served only to bring glory to the Savior and to God. He is with his beloved wife, Marjorie and the rest of his family as well with past Prophets.

Walter Paiz

President Hinckley is a perfect example to faith and charity and principally a great effect in my life. Part of my new life in the church is for the testimony of president Hinckley, now I'm sad, but happy at the same time because I know he is with my Heavenly Father waiting for all the members to perseverate to be together in the first resurrection, this is my testimony. Thanks

Cindy Dowdy

What a blessed day it is in the Heaven's as "Thy good and faithful servant" has returned home to his maker. Oh how I will miss his profounding inspirational words of wisdom. President Hinckley one who will never be forgotten, for He made a difference in the lives of all he came in contact with. One always knew He was in the service of fellow beings and most graciously His Lord. How blessed we were to have met and known such a Valiant servant of our Heavenly Father. May the Lord bless the family of President Hinckley until that blessed day when we all meet again at the Savior's feet.

Mark Kimball Family

Tears of joy for him and sadness for us fell as we learned of our beloved Prophet's passing. We are so grateful to have known him loved him. May his family be blessed. We are so gratfeul to know, with no reservations that, families can be forever.

Our beloved Prophet & President is no longer physically with us here on earth, but he still is with us spiritually. And all we have to do when we
need his guidance and spirit is read the many articles in past Ensigns & other church perodicals,
watch video's & dvd's from past General Conferences.

He was and still is a very special man.
He has finished his work here on earth, Heavenly Father, and his dear wife , Marjorie, needed him there.

I also will miss seeing & listening to him in General Conference & and other church broadcasts.

My prayers are with his family here on earth , both his immediate family and his broad church family.

Thank you Pres Hinkley,

Drew Jensen
