The Church has lost a great man, leader, and a magnificient Prophet! May the HEAVENLY FATHER bless his family, as we know HE will. May the HEAVENLY FATHER bless our next President & Prophet. He will have very big shoes to fill, as President Hinckley was truly a man of GOD. His actions, personality, and the good work that he done, will be hard to "out-do!" But, we all know that GOD is in charge, and our next Prophet & President, will do just that. Our family says; GOD bless you Gordon B. Hinckley, now go to your rest! You truly deserve it!

Thank you Gordon B. Hinckley for being a shining example of commitment to the truth of Heavenly Father and His Son whom appeared to young Joseph Smith jr. who is and was a prophet who restored Jesus Christ gospel in these last days. Through your faithful and wise leadership many have been blessed and inspired of the Lord to continue to endure till the end and to always spread the message of Christ that he lives and we can return to him fully restored to our families if we so choose.Thanks for leaving this world wide church with such a wanting desire to continue where you left off in loving kindness and feverent fellowship with our members and non members alike. You will always be a remeberance to me that One Must Always Be Slow To Anger it is the #1 cause of much tribulation in this world. Glory to Thee Heavenly Father and I thank Thee for the peace our prohet has left us with as well as the peace he is basking in now. I say these things in Jesus sweet name Amen.

What a wonderful man. I love him so much.


Amen to all the good words above and yet to come


From a man of Muslim faith, I heard the sad news of this great leader's death. I wish to express my deep condolences to his family, and tell them he wil be missed as a leader of that faith.

President Hinckley got more done, smiling all the while, than most any ten strong and intelligent others could do.


Dear Hinkley Family how we loved our beloved Prophet. He will be missed. May the Holy Spirit comfort you. How Heaven must be rejoycing at President Hinkley's arrival..Now let us pray for our new leaders that they will carry on with strength and vigor.

I'm honored to join this online gathering of saints and friends to pay tribute to a diminutive giant among men, and servant of all. His loving gaze seemed to fall only upon family wherever he went. We all are blessed by his faithful, cheery temperament and unflagging optimism.

His witness of the risen Christ seems like a personal gift for me.

I'll do my best, President!


We will truly miss you President Hinckley! Your inspired words and strong testimony has strengthened mine deeply and will continue to do so throughout my life. Thank you for all that you have done and all that will you do on the other side of the veil.


President Hinckley changed my life with his kind, loving manner as the prophet of the church. I love him and will miss him.

What a wonderful man and Prophet, We were sadden to hear of his passing but joyful to know he is with his sweetheart again. Thank you President Hinckley for your awesome testimony of our Saviour, We shall miss your talk at Conference this year as they were always inspiring and being the first Prophet from the church that we have know since joining nearly three years ago. Heavenly Father knew your work was finished here and you were needed back home.
Loved and missed.

Last night I was reading the text from a BYU Devotional he gave about the 13th Article of Faith. Without a doubt he exemplified about which he spoke. Perhaps the last two Mormons to hear the news, we learned of his passing this morning when my sister called. I will miss him dearly and he will always hold a special place in my heart. Til we meet again!

Our deepest condolences to the all the many family and friends of President Hinckley. We feel a great sense of loss and yet a happiness that he is with his beloved Marjorie. He was truly a prophet of God and we love him very much and we will miss him greatly.

I love this great man and appreciate his willingness to bless my life and so many others across the world as he served and spread truth and was such a great force for good.
