What a sad and mournful day it is!! We have truly lost a great leader, prophet and friend. We will truly miss our BELOVED prophet!! Aloha 'oe, until we meet again.


I will miss you more than words can say. Thank you for your leadership, your love, your humility, your strength and courage, your unwavering devotion to the Lord and His Church. I am happy you are reunited with your beloved Marjorie. God bless your family and loved ones. We all knew this was coming, but there's no way to really prepare for the deep feeling of loss. You were truly a giant.

I received notification by text message at 8:24 PM MST! The word traveled really fast of his passing! My sister also heard via text message at about the same time! I think this may have been how many others received message of his passing! We will miss President Hinckley! He was a wonderful man and we will never forget him!


We love you and will miss you. See you again soon I hope.

even though i do not see eye to eye in some doctrinal principles with the LDS church, i do appreciate pres hincklesy example. I know he served his church, community, and this nation. I am deeply saddened for the loss of a wonderful man like him. I met him about 4 years ago and actually had a conversation with him while I was investigatin the church. There was something definately different about him. Rest in peace mr. hinckley


We all feel a sense of relief that you are once again united with your beloved Marjorie--while at the same time acknowledging that this world has lost a shining light of pure goodness.

We will always remember--and feel humbled by--your great example.

'Til we meet again....


Although we have lost a global treasure, Prophet Hinckley's legacy will continue to guide us and our future generations. His immense devotion to Our Savior and The Gospel has proven to be a wonderful example for all of us to follow. His dedication to The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints sets the tone for the world to know of the good influence this church has over the earth. With much gratitude for the selfless service of such a wonderful, we send our love to the Hinckely family.

Truly missed from Hawaii

Here is Laie, people have a strong love for a prophet who knew many of us by name. He will be missed, but his example will live on.

We're grateful to have had him as long as we did.

Aloha 'oe

What a reunion you must be having with Sister Hinckley and your family up above. So many members of the Church know no other prophet. You have truly inspired and will be missed by millions. You are a brilliant example of a follower of Jesus Christ. We love you President Hinckley! God bless your family at this time of grief.


He was a prophet and a great man and will be missed.

I know, by the power of the Holy Ghost, that Gordon B. Hinckley was a prophet of God. His love, his kindness, his wit, his humor, his skill in communicating, his frankness, his powerful positivity, his compassion, his sincere concern, his faith, and his determination and passion to serve God with all of his soul truly has brought us all closer to our Savior Jesus Christ.

I am sure the Lord will forever remember President Hinckley as one of His good and faithful servants. What an inspiration. The Lord, through this wonderful and humble servant, has brought me closer to Heaven. May God bless Gordon B. Hinckley, and his family--forever. May we all continue the great work of God with the same ferver, conviction, and focus that President Hinckley displayed in his faith-filled lifetime.

The moment my bestfriend texted me the news, I went straight to the net to confirm it. After, tears fell from my eyes knowing that a GREAT and A BELOVED LEADER has passed away...

Pres. Hinckley will always be remembered so dearly. I love him and he is an inspiring man of God!

May you enjoy your time spent now with your beloved Marjorie. You have left behind a great legacy for those you have trained so well to follow in the Savior's footsteps. Your love, example, your teachings and your testimony have fired up generations to let their light shine forth and to spread the Gospel across the world. You have put the Temple within reach of so many millions more people so that millions can enjoy the fulness of the Gospel. President Hinckley you have reached out to our youth with love but with firm guidelines in these difficult times and I thank you as a mother of 7. Your counsel has comforted me so often and lifted me up as did your challenge to our family to read the Book of Mormon. What a blessing that was! Your personal witness of Jesus Christ has been a powerful witness in the life of my family, particularly in the lives of my two missionary sons.I attended your solemn assembly and was deeply moved by the Spirit. May your family and friends be comforted and blessed at this time. We love you and will miss you.

I know there is a great reunion going on tonight across the veil with our Saviour Jesus Christ, Sister Hinckley, with family, ancestors, and friends who have gone before, but also with all the prophets that have gone before as well. One of Heavenly Father's sons is safely home again.

Thank you, President Hinckley, for your excellent humble example. You kept the faith, touched many lives, and did the Lord's work throughout your life and endured to the very end. I know you will rest in peace tonight and always. I also know that our Saviour will have more work for you across the veil. You will be missed on this side of the veil.

To President Hinckley's family and friends, I pray the Comforter will be with you through these difficult days. We mourn with you.

Sincerely yours,
