Today (Tues., Feb. 27), Billy Graham’s body will lie in repose once again inside the Graham Family Homeplace on the Billy Graham Library grounds in Charlotte, North Carolina.
His casket, which will remain closed, was received on Saturday afternoon by his children, grandchildren, sister and other close family members after a touching three-and-a-half hour motorcade that began near his home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
During today’s lie in repose period, the line is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Portions of the day will also be streamed live on Billy Graham’s memorial website.
There will be no on-site public parking during this period of lie in repose. All public parking will be accommodated at the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center located at 7100 Forest Point Blvd., a few miles from the Billy Graham Library and at the Charlotte Business Valet, Lot 2 at 5807 Wilkinson Blvd.
Complimentary public shuttle buses are running continually from these lots to and from the Graham Family Homeplace. The last shuttle will depart the parking lot 30 minutes before the public lie in repose closes.
