What a wonderful life to be a Prophet of such a prodound church on this earth. President Hinkley will be missed by all that knew him. God bless our fellow Apostles in the choice of a new Prophet to lead our church. And may the spirit of the Lord be with them in this decision and bless them in a special way.

The Warren Hiatt Family.


Has the program been announced yet the songs and speakers. BYUTV I could record it and it may be archived on the lds webpage but on dish is not yet announced on the guide network. Hopefully will so can be recorded.


I feel blessed to be among those who new Pres. as an amazing Prophet for almost 13 years. He accomplished more in those years than most men do in a lifetime. He was well known in the public arena, and most people who had the honor to meet him, or see him on television programs, will remember his quick whit and loving manner.

He was truly a Prophet of God, who taught all of us to try to be better people in all asspects of life. He will be missed on earth, but angels are rejoicing, along with his beloved wife, to have him join the heavenly throng.

May the Lord bless his family with peace and comfort at this time of combined sorrow and joy.

I feel so, so lucky to have been able to live in the same life time with one of the greatest prophets the church has had. His sence of humor and energy will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with him, and i am really looking forward to attending his services, their will not be one day where i will not stop and think about his greatness and all the things that he did for the church... Gordon Bitner Hinkley, YOU RULE!!!!

Let the Saints come to the mountains of Zion and pay respect to our dear President Hinckley. Expect the Saints to withstand the cold and come out in large numbers.


This is such a great and amazing thing to attend. The lines run smoothly, thanks to the great planning of the conference center. There is such a reverence there and brings a sense of closure. Please atten.d

The Taylor Family

We thank thee O God for a Prophet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! President Hinckley was a great man who allowed himself to be used by our Heavenly Father to bring about the gospel to the world. What a tremendous undertaking and he did it well! What a good and faithful servant Gordon B. Hinckley was and still is to those on the other side! May we all strive to live our lives in such a way that we will be reunited with our dear prophet one day! We love and miss him, but know that he is happy to be with his dear "bubushka" again. God be with you till we meet again...........

Can we possibly even begin to imagine the joy President Hinkley felt the moment he saw his sweet wife's face again? We feel truly blessed to have had this wonderful man of God in our families life.
As with all of our prophets of the Church, He represented everything that is good and "right" in this world.
Our sympathy and prayers go out to his sweet family.
Goodnight President Hinkley, we'll see you in a little while.
