God bless you President Hinckley. I will miss you, our family will miss you. Thank you for your many years of diligent and compassionate service, your insightful and indelible words of wisdom, and the wonderful example you have been to young and old. God bless the Mormon faith to continue to move forward and follow the course you have set so that one day we can all return home with honor as you have done. We love you and miss you.

"...Until we meet again my friend, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand." Godspeed President Hinckley. I miss you so much already.

I and my family will miss President Hinkley. As I heard the news my first thouht was of the glorious reunion that must be taking place as he joins his eternal companion in paradise. I only hope that I to can endure faithfully to the end.

How can one express how much this great prophet meant to not only the Church, the world and my family, but to all humanity. I loved him. He was my hero! The Carlson family will always remember his humor and love for people. My son said something to me last night that I had not thought of. He is 21 years old and said dad President Hinckley is the only prophet Ive known. It will be that way for all the youth of the church. He will be missed, but the joy of reunion must have been exceptional. We the Carlson family, rejoice in his life and thank the Lord for such a great leader, mentor, friend and prophet.

Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than spoken words.

I hang my head in silence and sadness at the passing of a truly great man.

God Speed, Sir... God Speed.

What a wonderful man! I will miss his sweet words of incouragement and incredible sense of humor. I am so thankful that he was the Prophet during my teenage years. I looked forward to every General Conference. His messages made me want to try harder to be better. I am so happy he is able to be with his darling wife right now. I look forward to seeing him again on the other side. We Thank Thee O God for a Prophet! We will miss you Pres. Hinckley!

Even though we are sad at the passing of our beloved Prophet President Gorden B Hinckley, WE all know how much He loved his Marjorie,and how she loved and adored him.
To know He and his sweet-sweet Marjorie are at last together again. OH, how thankful I am for this church for the restoration of the Gospel, and my testimony of Eternal Families.
We add our testimony, We know the Gospel is true, that President Hinckley is a Prophet of God, we will see him again-We know He and Marjorie are together again, Oh, can't you just see them together again, what joy this brings me. Knowing that not only Marjorie but his family and friends were there waiting for him.
Can you hear the Savior saying to President Hinckley "Well done my faithful servant...well done.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hinckley family, and the Saints around the world, as we all mourn together, let us remember, this is all part of the Great Plan, the Work will continue His word will continue to go forth.....

Love from the,

What a wonderful man, leader and had a great sense of humor!

When serving my mission in Alaska in 1978, President Hinckley visited our mission and met most of the missionaries in Anchorage. When introduced he looked at my name tag and said: "Elder Frost you're in the right place"!

The Pollock Family

Oh how we loved President Hinckley. He was one of the worlds greatest prophets that has ever lived and dwelled on this earth. President Hinckley always had a wonderful jolly spirit about him. We will truly miss this wonderful man. My family looks forward to the day of seeing him again.

My sweet daughter, Danielle texted me Sunday, Jan 27th, at 7:55 PM, MST advising me of President Hinckleys passing. My wife and I were attending a regional meeting in St George when the text message came. What a great man who was loved by many. My first memories of Pres Hinckley were listening to conference talks on "reel to reel tapes" while serving a mission to Norway in the early 60's. His voice was always calm and comforting and gave advice that I remember to this day. It is comforting knowing that he is welcomed by his lovely wife, Marjorie. We love you and will miss your wise counsel and advice. God speed.

After I received the news from my son Jacobs call, I got in to my knees and preyed, I sow great rejoice and happiness in Heaven, angels with trumpeters announcing President Hinckleys arrive, a hush congregation was waiting on him, specially his beloved family, I could see our Heavenly Father with Jesus Christ walking to meet President Hinckley, hugging him and saying: Well done, welcome home! Every body celebrating and greeting him, he is very, but very happy to be there.

I had the privilege to meat President Hinckley and wife, sacked his hands in Mexico Citys Temple Benediction by that time he wasnt president of the church, later on, I sow him as president of the Church in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico. He was one of the grates men lived on earth.

Thank you for all your love, time and effort.

The Barney Family

Thank You, President Hinckley for your wonderful and great leadership. Our family will always remember your genuine and loving spirit. You were definitely a man of endless love for others. You have as well made the world a better place for all mankind because of who you were. We are happy that you have been reunited with your beloved wife, Marjorie once again. We know that you were anxious to be by her side once again. May God bless you both.

Our deepest prayers go to your wonderful family.
