Honoring the Life of Billy Graham

February 15, 2021

Almost three years ago, on Feb. 21, 2018, Billy Graham entered into the presence of the Lord. Today, we continue to celebrate his life and legacy by reflecting on how God used him and his ministry to impact the lives of millions around the world.

Mr. Graham’s love for people everywhere was a constant earmark of his ministry, and multitudes have poured out their affections for him, crediting his faithfulness to preach the Gospel for their decisions to follow Christ.

Billy Graham’s homegoing to Heaven sparked outpourings of grief from around the world as people mourned the loss of an amazing man of God. Dignitaries and celebrities came to pay their respects at his lie in repose in the Homeplace at the Billy Graham Library. At the Library gates, many left flowers and notes in remembrance of a humble farm boy who became God’s evangelist to the world.

Below are some of the messages expressing condolences that were received.
