The 1st Prophet, I knew of or cared about was Spencer W. Kimball, way before I joined the Church. Has to do with June 1978. When I joined the Church in 1988 Ezra Taft Benson was the Leader. I watched conference for the 1st time in October 1988. I heard Thomas Monson for the 1st time and truely loved him from the start. Next came Howard W. Hunter and I woundered why? He did the spread The Book Of Mormon thing and I was on a Stake Mission so I helped. Shortly it seemed he passed on and President Hinckley became the Leader. He did the Temple Building and The Fund for the Returned Missionarys. Now he has passed on. My family will clear Saturday for the Services. It is not a lock but very likely Thomas Monson will become the Leader. He will bring his own style. I hope he lives long and stays healthy. Each Prophet has brought somthing different to the Leadership Role. Each had his time and his season. It is up to us to follow instructions and be willing and teachable, while not being Lemings. I have Great Love for The Prophets I have known

I first remember hearding President Hinckely speak when I was in the SLC Mission Center (Jun,1972) as both a fairly new convert and a new missionary. He gave a key note speech as an apostle to help prepare us for the mission field. Beyond his his beautiful witness of Jesus Christ, the restored gospel, Joseph Smith and The Book of Mormon he gave some very practical advice. He told us if we were assigned to an area with a car we must always get out of the car if we are the passenger and help guide the car whenever the driver is backing up. He said too many Elders were backing into things. He then held up the book The Truth Restore and encourage us to give a copy to every new convert for it gave a brief, but wonderful history of the church. May God always bless this most wonderful spiritual and practical prophet and his family forever.

President Hinkley, wow! What can you say about a man that brought me back to full activity? He touched my heart, and always made me glad to be LDS. His smile, whit and charm will be missed. As gentle as he was, he was an inspiration to not only LDS, but to the world. May his family feel the love of all the members of the church at this time, and to them I say, thank you for sharing him with the world.

I was just a few yards away from President Hinckley in the Celestial Room when he dedicated the Raleigh
North Carolina Temple in 1998. I love that man and loved his book "Go Forward with Faith." I believe that is what he would say to us now if he could speak to us.

President Hinckley was one of the hardest working and kind men who have ever lived. I know he is happy now with his wife. He certainly lived the kind of life we all would want to! I will certainly miss him!!!

Bodmer Family from Maryland USA

Our heart and prayers go to the Hinckley Family. Five of our family members had the opportunity to see our beloved Prophet in person during Conference, we loved him and enjoyed his sense of humor but most of all his admonitions to be grateful, be smart, be clean, be true, be humble, be prayerful and all the great talks about the gospel and the Church. We are blessed with the great work that he did increasing the amount of temples. Also we have the privilege of having 2 daughters Alexandra and Christina that served the mission on Temple Square and they had the opportunity to see and hear the Prophet too.
We know he is in a good place, we know he is with his wife and family and friends, we know that he will continue teaching the gospel, and we know that we will see him again someday.
Thanks President Hinckley!

With love,
The Bodmer's

Thank You for telling us when the funeral will be.

I'm not LDS yet, but my friends who are LDS are happy to know they will be able to view the memorial service for President Gordon B. Hinckley here in Texas at home on their Dish Network TV satellite from the BYU-TV channel on #9403. They've
invited me to their home to see the service and that's sweet of them.... Thank You in public!

Mr. Hinckley, who I never met, has been an inspiration to me and to many many more as these newspaper articles tell about.

I have seen him in the conference and devotionals on the tv the past couple of years or so and he does show a great enthuiasm for life,
the Lord Jesus, and just being busy.
I like his sense of humor.

What a great example of the LDS Church. It was good he could keep up the pace all the way through his 97 years. He probably lived longer than many
because he stayed busy with all that enthuiasm.

God Bless you all.

What an honorable and loving man. Although, I have my differences with the Church, he never ceased to amaze me. May we heed his counsel and strive to be kinder to one another.

What an wonderful, inspirational man!

WE WILL NOT SEE HIS LIKES AGAIN. NEVER ONCE DO I REMEMBER HIM TELLING A STORY OR INCIDENCE FROM HIS LIFE FOR THE PURPOSE OF MAKING HIMSELF LOOK GOOD. SELF-AGGRANDIZEMENT WAS NOT HIS STYLE. HIS INCREDIBLE HUMILITY WAS REAL. HE KEPT HIMSELF CENTERED ALWAYS - DESPITE THE ADULATION OF MILLIONS AROUND THE WORLD. HE REALLY MEANT IT WHEN HE TOLD US THAT HIS CALLING IN THE CHURCH WAS NO IMPORTANT THAN THE ONES WE WERE HOLDING AT THE TIME.
