    We were so touched and blessed this Christmas season to spend it at the Billy Graham Library. The Library experience of Billy’s Journey of Faith was so well done. In fact, we returned a second day just to see the things we missed the day before. The staff was so hospitable and treated you as if they’ve always known you. Thank you and merry Christmas.

    Billy Graham has a lot of to do with my heart. He is my spiritual father and was a man of God.

  3. Donald Emery says:

    I thought the world of Mr. Graham and President Bush. The word “integrity” comes immediately to my mind when thinking of both families. God bless the Graham and Bush families.

    He has joined his wife, and Billy and Ruth Graham in heaven. The old friends are probably fishing and certainly rejoicing and praising the Savior! What a blessed Christmas they will all experience together in heaven!

    I have enjoyed hearing him preach at Crusades over the years, reading his books, watching his programs on TV and seeing him make special appearances with some of his close friends.

    Praying for the Bush family. May God’s favor continue to pour out on the BGEA.
