President Hinckley was a man endowed with talents and skills that blessed the lives of millions. He practiced what he preached. He will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family of our beloved prophet - although, now he is with his sweetheart and the sun will always shine - he was a true leader and an example of humility -

Wow, that means people from all over the world will be in Utah this weekend.

Kissed by the Lord

I can't believe it happened! I know we'll all miss our prophet so much... President Hinckley was a great inspiration to me personally from childhood when I played the piano for him as a 13-yr. old in the home of Robert Cundick, former organist. He said I had been 'kissed by the Lord' -- indicated by way of an odd kiss-like birthmark I've lifelong worn on my forehead and which has always set me apart. The touching remarks & heart-warming encouragement he sent me off with have remained uplifting in musical and life-in-general pursuits. Truly, he was a great man. News of his death shocked me last night and moved me to compose a piece by the above title in his memory.

Wish we could be there to experience this, but we will just have to see it all broadcast.

This is an opportunity for the world to celebrate the life of President Hinkley. My family and I have been blessed by his counsel. I wish we could attend and I hope it will be televised.

God Bless

God Bless the Hinckley family. I'm sure he and Marjorie will be happy together again.


Thanks President Hinckley for your dedication to spreading the word of God to all of us. I will forever remember many of the talks you have given and especially the feelings I have felt as I have listened to the word of God from your voice.

President Hinckley, you will be missed. You always had an amazing way with words.

Tom Brooke

I remember meeting him in Geneva, Swit. in about 1974 while on my mission. During a break in meetings he came out of the chapel to visit with the missionaries. He asked us how we were enjoying our work. He made the comment as to how much he wished he could join us nearly to tears in bearing testimony to the truthfulness of the Restoration. He truly missed being able share the Gospel like the regular missionaries. He was a man that left me feeling that what I was doing was for the Lord. I look forward to seeing him again.

Mary Jane Fajardo- from Bogota

Recordar al Presidente Hinckley como el Profeta que hizo posible que nos acercramos ms a las bendiciones de la eternidad al hacer posible la construccin de templos pequeos alrededor del mundo. Debemos honrar la memoria de este gran profeta al seguir al Seor y asistir al templo con ms regularidad.


2 words sum him up: forever great


Such a dear man. We can best honor President Hinckley by following his counsel and example.
