Franklin Graham has revealed what was etched upon the grave marker of his late father, Billy Graham. Billy Graham was laid to rest Friday next to his beloved wife, Ruth Graham, in Charlotte.
His grave marker is a field stone that reads:
Billy Graham, November 7, 1918 - February 21, 2018
Preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ John 14:8.
The verse reads, "Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
The 99-year-old Charlotte-born evangelist was laid to rest after a private funeral service at the Billy Graham Library Friday. Graham's funeral service was held under a huge white tent set up in the parking lot in front of the Billy Graham Library. The service was private, open only to 2,300 invited guests.
