  1. Colonel, Chaplain Richard W. Bower, USA (ret.) says:

    My being is fulled with a sadness that we no longer have Billy among us. Yet, my voice cries out with joy that he lives, and is now dwelling with our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. Thank you Billy for leading my mother and later me to the saving grace or the Lord. Well done…good and faithful servant!

  2. Val Imperial says:

    A very moving ceremony to remember Billy Graham. Love and honor to our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.

  3. Joe Lay says:

  4. François Vaillancourt says:

    A great man of God.

  5. Lillian C Lindquist says:

    To commend such a powerful man in God is the highest feeling of hope as Christians. We all as humans shall join together. He was a great father, great teacher of the Bible and loyal man of character for the Lord. He saved me from disarray and destruction. I thank you so much. God is with you now. Have the party of faith. Thanks from my heart.

  6. Nancy Tarpy says:

    Thank you for sharing all of this history and memories of Billy Graham. My mother was saved at his 1949 L.A. Crusade, my youngest son at the Children’s Crusade in Sacramento, CA, around mid 90’s. My husband & I were honored to be counselors at the Treasure Valley (Boise) Crusade in 1983. We attended the 1983 Crusade in Sacramento and his final Crusade there around 2000. We have supported this ministry over the years and continue to pray for you folks. My mom came from Russia and was so thrilled when Billy Graham preached to the Russian people! She shared her testimony until her death about how she was saved at a Billy Graham Crusade in 1949. Thank you for your faithful ministry and God bless you richly. (1 Corinthians 1:18)

  7. Lupe Garcia says:

    Because of Mr. Graham I got saved watching him on TV in 1990.

  8. Marita Johnson says:

    I accepted Jesus into my life during his ’89 Crusade on TV. He will be missed.
