It is a great loss with the passing of President Hinckley.
It is disturbing that Mr Bush would insult his memory, If only one could believe Mr Bush, and see him as a man with even 1% of the integrity of President Hinckley.


Pres. Hinckley was friends with everyone!

Thanks to our US President for his kind comments on the passing of LDS President Hinckley. President Hinckley is continuing the great work of our Father in Heaven. It is a a great countty that we live in.

President Bush has always been very gracious to Pres. Hinckley and always recognized the important role that Pres. Hinckley played in the lives of millions of people. I am glad for this recognition.It's too bad that we can hardly find any mention of his death in most major news media outlets. I just saw the notice on Yahoo that the head of the Orthodox Catholics passed away. Not a word about Gordon B. Hincklely, who will live in our memories. I will miss him tremendously.

Isn't it incredible, the wide-spread acceptance and love of the Church President Hinckley has brought? I too thank President Bush for his kind remarks on the passing of one of the greatest men to have ever lived. We will miss him as our beloved prophet!

I am so grateful that President Hinckley is with his sweetheart. They will never be separated again. I am also grateful that our great nation is led by a man who trusts his Father in Heaven, and allows Him to participate in his decision making process. Too bad the 4-term rule can't be put into effect.


It is very nice to see the leader of the free world ( President Bush)take a moment and pay his respects to our Prophet. It was the right thing to do. President Hinkley all I can say is thank you for all you did for us.


Thanks to President Bush for his kind words of sympathy and comfort. I truly feel that President Bush did respect and appreciate our beloved Prophet. President Hinkley will be remembered well by so many.


I was sad for few seconds, but I'm glad that he will be together with her sweetheart. What a happy reunion indeed! We will miss him! What a great prophet! Also, thanks Pres. Bush.

I'm glad the media all over the USA recognized this great man.

Thank you, President Bush, for your kind words! It is amazing to see the kind of response the passing of the prophet is triggering!!

re: george

This is a very nice (and sincere) tribute from our nation's President, who has not only honored him in death with this tribute, but also honored him in life with the nation's highest civil award. Thank you President Bush, and thank you President Hinckley. "George" (who posted above), you are entitled to your opinions, but if anyone is being insulting here, "thou art the man."


That is a very kind statement from the President. He is a good man and I know he regarded President Hinckley very highly.

Thank you President Bush for your support and respect for the beloved Prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley. President Hinckley did do much good, not only for Americans but for many nations not limited to our faith. A lot can be learned from him.

Thank You

I would also like to thank President Bush for those kind words about President Hinkley.


I read all these comments and have to comment myself on the fact that they were all kind, uplifting responses. President Hinckley always brought out the best in others and these responses only illustrate this point. It's kind of nice to read such positive statements for once in the newspaper.


In regards to george's comment I have to state the following: I read Pres. Bush's condolences and there was nothing insulting or disparaging about Pres. Hinckley. It is too bad that someone can have so much dislike of Pres. Bush that even when he recognizes all the wonderful things that Pres. Hinckley has done you look past it and want to condemn Pres. Bush because you don't like him.


"kings shall extole him and nations revere"

kings.....or Presidents.


Praise to the man.


Thank you, Mr. President.

Pres. Hinckley's legacy

It will be a real test to see how well we follow Pres. Hinckley's constant advice to be kind and love our fellow man. I likewise hope those not of our faith extend the same measure of respect.

We love you, President Hinckley!!!
