The body of Rev. Billy Graham arrives to hometown

Motorcade for Rev. Billy Graham to travel 130 miles

"Each one I've known long before they ever became president, been in their homes many times; always called them by their first names, until they became president", Graham said of several former presidents.

The spiritual leader, who died at the age of 99 Wednesday at his North Carolina home, led his evangelical crusades in more than 185 countries and territories.

The motorcade left the Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville, North Carolina, for a four-hour journey to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.

While there are no public events held to honor Reverend Billy Graham Sunday night, you can come out to uptown at 7 p.m.to honor the man remembered by many as "America's Pastor".

Graham and his family "never really reveled in all of the celebrity. He filled a football stadium with a fully integrated audience, reminding them that we all come before God as equals, both in our imperfection and our absolute claim to wonderful grace", Clinton said. His body will lie in repose in a closed casket at the Billy Graham Library on Monday, February 26 and Tuesday, February 27 for the public to pay their respects. "And I believe because of his service to humanity, that he's truly gonna be great in the kingdom of heaven".




He passed away from natural causes just before 8 a.m. Wednesday at his home in Montreat just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. She was out in the lobby of the hotel and she sat down next to Billy Graham and said, 'I have a brother named Billy.' And Dr. Billy Graham looked at it and said, "I think that means 'go preach'". Perhaps, in my next, in another lifetime.

Leighton Ford, the evangelist's brother-in-law, said he was thankful for the show of support and also a little sad.

Dr Graham will be buried in a plywood coffin made by local prison inmates and laid to rest next to Ruth, who died in 2007.

The funeral will be held in a tent in the main parking lot of Graham's library in tribute to the 1949 Los Angeles tent revivals that propelled him to worldwide fame, family spokesman Mark DeMoss said.

Soul Church on Mason Road in Norwich is one of just six locations on the United Kingdom chosen to receive a live stream of the funeral service on Friday March 2 from 5pm.
