    I will miss the prophet and hearing his words. He was a wonderful prophet who has done so much to spread the true gospel on the earth today.

    I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. ALthough I have been true to my father in Heaven my whole life, I am trying so very hard now. President Gordon B. Hinckley was probably the greatest inspiration in my life he helped me to realize the truth. He helped me get back to the "Iron Rod". Not that I knew him personally or any thing, but he was like a spokesman for Heavenly Father.

    For a while I stopped going to church. Only because I was going through so many trials and tribulations. I know that is no excuse. But Gordon B. Hinckley said in his book "The Way To Be", that our very attitude shows how greatful we are of life. Let me tell you I didn't have a very good attitude. I am changing though and i was through our Prophet that I have made it.

    I can only imagine the celestial precessional he has recieved this day. He has inspired, and no doubt saved, countless souls. My heartfelt condolences go out to the Hinckley family. After shaking his hand 12 years ago I have always felt that he was my personal teacher and prophet. Gordon B. Hinckley was a prophet of God and is now in the Lord's presence with family and friends.

    I am so happy for him! He missed his dear wife so much and now they are together again. FOR ETERNITY.
    God Bless him and his Family.
    Thank you President Hinckley for a life time of service to the most important work on earth.

    My heartfelt love and sympathy goes out to the family and friends and all people of our faith at this time for our Prophet in his passing. He was a great man and leader in this world. I mourn our great loss. I have somewhat of a empty feeling this morning and eagerly await the next prophet of our church and faith. President Gordon B. Hinckley will be deeply missed by all that he touched whether LDS or not. A time of change now comes to our faith. It always stands as light and truth.

    Although I did not know President Hinckley personaly, I have lost someone who I loved so dearly, if I look deep enough in to my heart I'm glad he is now with his wife who he was loning to see. I, only being 13 years of age, have shared the and preached the gosple for and through the prophet. President Hinckley has moved touched and inspired many, even those who were not members, and I hope that anyone who reads this message will be able to go and do the same.

    Just a few years ago, my testimony was faltering. Over time, I got to know President Hinkley. He talked in my language; I mean, he had a way that reached me personally. I began to feel that he was my friend, one who answered most of my questions in a plain spoken way. I have gon in very similar direcrion in my education and career. He has served as my "Great Motivator" in the Church. Now, I truly feel like I've lost a grandfather, a personal friend, a most beloved prophet of God. I'm a pretty tough guy, but I cried when I heard the news. My condolences go to all of us who knew him. And, especially our sypmathy to his wonderful family. Looking on the "bright side," see our prophet in a sweet reunion with his beautiful bride, Sister Hinkley. I know that we will all see them again if we continue to hold onto that "Iron Rod." Along with my father whom has passed,this prophet just gives me a greater motivation to do good so that I can see these two, along with many others, again, in Paradise.

    I feel this morning that I have lost a dear friend.
    Pres. Hinckley was a wonderful prophet of God, who has inspired so many whether LDS or not to live a better life. He spoke from the heart with great honesty, he will be sorely missed. My country (England) has lost one of it's truest friends.

    President Hinckley will be greatly missed! He was such a wonderful example. I loved his humor, his gentleness, and the genuine love he had for not only the LDS people, but the all of humanity.

    I will truly miss him!

    Pres. Hinckley's got to be one of funniest man on earth and his humor made everyone around him feel so comfortable. He is a master teacher because of his humor. To me his humor reflects his love, his patience, his understanding, his empathy.

    Mormons can be justly proud of Mr. Hinckley. And although I'm not Mormon, I feel as if he cared equally for me.

    I, along with my family, will miss President Hinckley for his leadership, unconditional love, wit and wisdom.

    He meant the world to all of us and we remember him fondly. Our heart felt condolences go out to his family, the First Presidency and his extended Church family.
