    Watching his arrival at the Capitol to lie in honor there. What a moment for our citizens to witness, especially non believers. His arrival in heaven was grander.

    I heard Billy Graham over 50 years ago. It was a big deal when he preached on the tv. My grandma and I would hurry into the tv room. I would sit at her feet and we would watch him on her black and white. He touched my life at a very early age. I’m heartbroken and thrilled that he went home! Thank you

    This man of God has changed my life completely he has made me realise that without Jesus life is useless. I might own houses, cars money talk of all earthly riches ,but without Jesus all that is nothing! May the lord bless him!

    I have listened to Rev Graham since I was 6 years old. That’s been 60 years ago. It would be a special night our neighbors would come to the house and we would gather around the TV…which were not in everybody’s home…it felt like we were part of the crusade…God bless

    For some reason on this day 5-15-2015, I had a great feeling in my heart to ask who was the last President to meet with Billy Graham. This came up on my computer. I was so pleased to see the praying for our presidents. Thank you Lord for your wonderful creation Billy Graham. He has been a wonderful part of my life in all his help with prayers, love and telling me and so many others about our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you so much Lord for such a great brother. Tanya

    I loved these photographs. They showed our presidents as real people who respected this fine Man of God. They are, in fact, transformative. Thank you.

    I remember God touching my heart for the first time, while I was listening to a Billy Graham Crusade, with my Parents. I always thank God for sending Dr. Graham across my path. The prescription for Eternal Life is just believe in Jesus Christ, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit..
