    Our 2016 visit to The Cove and also the Billy Graham Library will always be a special memory. May his message of the Gospel, God’s love and holy living live on forever. The funeral songs, tributes and the message by his son Franklin were Spirit-filled and heart searching. May God bless!

    My friend in third grade invited me to go to see Billy Graham in Miami, FL. When he gave the invitation, I went up and gave my life to Jesus. It meant so much to hear and meet him at a young age. I am now 70 and when I watch the Classic’s and hear him preaching, I still hold that day in my heart.

    We were privileged to be a part of Dr. Graham’s Crusade in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1979. My two teen girls and I were part of Cliff Barrows’ choir. My wife was a children’s counselor. The training was something she has treasured over the years. Our sincere condolences to all of you.

    In 2006, I had the privilege of attending a Billy Graham service at H.P. Pavilion, in San Jose, CA, where I went up for altar call and gave my life to Jesus.

    Billy Graham was my Christian hero who I looked up to. He was the Michael Jordan of bringing lost souls to Christ. He could talk and communicate with anyone, and he was admired and loved by millions throughout the world.

    Growing up, my mom and dad would gather my brothers, sisters and I in the living room to watch the Billy Graham Crusades. I did the same when I had a family of my own. His message was so simple. As a child I could understand the message of salvation. I have been so blessed through his ministry.

  8. Mark Hill

    In 1979, my friend Marissa enthusiastically told me that I had to attend Wheaton. I got excited and joyfully researched the school. Hearing that the atmosphere was heavenly and discovering that the bold, winsome, charismatic Billy Graham was an alumnus sealed it. He has always been in my psyche.

    Your father was a very special man.  I felt extremely sad when he died, but also knew he was extremely happy.  I have admired your father for years, there is no other like him.  I strive to live a life as he did—always putting God first and living that Godly example. Continued prayers for you all.

    Billy Graham’s message has helped me through all of life’s ups and downs. I will miss him. Franklin, you gave a great speech. Your dad would be proud.
