William Frankin Graham Jr. was one of the most famed preachers of this past century. Over the course of his life, his words reached 215 million live audiences around the world with many more through his numerous T.V. and radio appearances.
Sadly, Graham passed away on Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 at the age of 99 in his home in Montreat, North Carolina. Although a time of mourning for many who followed and believed in him, he would not have put it in such a way. He was often heard saying, “my home is in Heaven, (and) I’m just traveling through this world.”
The GREAT Billy Graham is dead. There was nobody like him! He will be missed by Christians and all religions. A very special man.

Johnson, Richard Nixon as well as political figures like Martin Lutehr King Jr. and others. He was deeply involved in all crucial stages of this nation and will be missed by many people of all religions.
