All of our three children ranging in age from 17 to 26 feel like he is their prophet. He will be greatly missed. His optimism, love, and enthusiasm are unprecedented. We all shed a tear but we rejoice in the knowledge of the restored gospel and the great reunion he is having now with his loved ones. We will always cherish his words that will live on in our hearts.

I was once in the company of our beloved prohet. He attended a sacrament meeting without anyone knowing he was going to be there. What a thrill for all of us. Our lives will go on, and the best way forward is to follow in the footsteps of Gordon Bitner Hinkley, who, after all, was walking in the footsteps of the Saviour. Could any path be clearer, easier maybe, but never clearer. The Saints in this part of Spain join in sadness for our loss, and in joy for heavens gain. Goodnight, and God Bless, president Hinkley.

Having only spent an hour or so of my life in President Hinckley's presence,at the Nottingham Stake building several years ago now, I truly come to know, by the witness of the Holy Spirit that he was a truly honest man, who served us and God with all his heart and soul.
I send my love and blessings to his family and those who knew him in his long and faithful life!

This week we will mourn the loss of President Hinckley, but we also celebrate his life. He truly loved the Savior and the people of the world, not just the people of the Church but the whole world. He was a prophet of God! We will miss President Hinckley, but we know his influence carries on.

We love him.

The sorrow is great we are feeling. The Legacy you have left is now ours to carry forward. Your amazing life of service to the Lord sets the example for our lives. Thankyou so very much for everything you have done for the world, the church and each individual person, you loved and cared for all of us. We love you, honor you and hope to carry on the integrity of the Lord's work on the earth. May your reunion be tremendous and our prayers are with you and Sis Hinkley.

I am so greatful to know president Gordon B. Hinkley. He is a true servant of God, his lifelong service in the church but also helping those who are less fortunate, the humanitarian effort, and counsel of being prepared at all time spiritually but also temprally. I've being blessed to heard from him two weeks ago in our Stake conference through satelite as he spoke to us about marriage and be more tolerable of each other and be more kind, patient and love for one another. I will forever remember him for his faith and great humor during general conference. May the spirit of the Lord comfort his family and closes frineds and all the members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints around the world as we morn together the passing of our beloved Prophet Gordon Bitner Hinkley. We will missed you until we meet again.

love,

While serving in Japan from 1958 to 1961 Pres. Hinckley toured our mission 3 times as an assistant to the twelve, one time he gave me advice, "find a good nisei girl and marry her", which I did. And when I did, I asked if he would marry us, which he did in the SL Temple. Many years later, he visited our Stake Conference in Pleasanton, CA, he leaned over to our stake president and said "I know that man". We have a nice photo of him with 5 of our 6 children (our youngest was not born yet). He certainly has been our most favorite general authority ever.

It was an honor to have been in his presence at the Sacramento Temple dedication. Our ward had BYD at my home when the phone call came.... I had to announce to 22 youth and adults that our prophet of the lord had passed. It was very sad and yet we all were assured that Gordon was being embraced by his wife once again and by Heavenly Father.
His humor, the waving of his cane will be missed!

Enjoy your eternity, President Hinckley. Though not because of your own actions, however great they most certainly were, but because of the Atonement of our loving Saviour, may you find never-ending joy with your loved ones now and forever. How beautiful is the man that acknowledges the sacrifice made by our Lord Jesus Christ, and demonstrates his love for Him through the relentless pursuit to be like Him, and to help others to do the same. I am in awe at the level of your personal faith that your mortal existence so gracefully demonstrated for the rest of the world to learn from.

From Baguio City, Philippines: We Thank Thee, O God, For A Prophet, President Hinckley. We'll surely miss our Prophet Dear, but we rejoice - he's HOME AT LAST! His Life and Teachings touched our lives and helped us to 'endure many things' and hope to withstand more challenges to come.

It was great to have had the chance to meet you in person during our dedication of our Temple. In Orlando, what a memory that will stay with me for the rest of my life. You have spoke many good words during conference time. I'm going to miss that. My love to your Children and family at this time of departing from us to meet of Lord the Reedmer. Love and Aloha.

You do not have to agree with President Hinckley, his followers or their church, but out of respect for the individual, maybe voicing your opinions should have been saved for a more appropriate venue. This is one of the problems with our society in general; there is no respect for anything and we focus only on self gratification. Have we all grown so far away from basic human compassion that we cant even acknowledge that he was a human being who has passed and morn the loss? It would have been just as easy to say nothing or better yet, not have read the article and comments. You have wasted more time reading comments and a story that neither of you obviously care about, so why, maybe to get a reaction and attention? I really do feel sorry for the two of you and the world we live in!

God Bless you President Hinckley! Heres to a life of dedication and sacrifice that exemplifies true humanity and is greatly appreciated by many. Hope you are having a joyous reunion with your family!

I am so thankful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father for allowing us to have with us such an insightful, loving, kind,sweet humored, thoughtful man as we found in Pres. Gordan B. Hinkley. Who showed us by his actions to never give up no matter what life throws at you.
Thank you Pres. Hinkley for all of your time and service. Thank you Hinckley family for sharing him with all of us. His life and example will never be forgotten. We Love YOU.

President Hinckley was/is such an example for all of us. He was optomistic in the face of challenge and doomsdayers and was faithful to the end. How can any of us strive to do less. I can only imagine the shout of joy that went up when he walked through the veil and was met by so many he loved and who loved him. What a resume he had to take with him. Thank you President Hinckley for your life and the service you so freely gave. We love you and look forward to a glorious reunion!

J Percival Borja

Truly the mantle of exemplary leadership, wisdom, and prophethood has passed over the head of a great prophet to the one whose right it is to succeed him. President Gordon Bitner Hinckley has indeed lived, loved, and left an enduring legacy for millions yet unborn to emulate from generation to generation!

We will always miss a great and humblest of all humankindness!

Amen!!!!!!!!!!

Oh if I could only be half the man President Gordon B. Hinkley was during his lifetime. Thank you Pres. Hinkley for all that you did for me and for all that you did for this wicked and perverse world we live in.........I am a better Husband, Father and human being beacuse of you and your example..........
