May God bless Billy Graham soul who took his evangelizing crusades around America and the whole world. Before his death, he also served as a counselor from Harry S. Truman to recent presidents Donald Trump.
When alive, Graham had preached nearly 215 million people around the globe and more via internet and television. He also conveyed his message through his books ‘Just as I Am’, one of a best-selling book in New York.
According to the source, he passed peacefully without any pain. He was never afraid of his death as he has acknowledged that who is born has to die one day.
Graham was once asked “Where is Heaven? He said –Heaven is where Jesus is and I am going to him soon!”
Though the charismatic pastor has left his physical form he will ever live in the heart of his beloved ones.
Billy Graham “My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.”
Billy’s son Franklin Graham after the death wisely wrote on Twitter “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints” (Psalm 116:15).

On 2 March 2018, a private funeral will be held in front of Graham’s library on the memory of his Los Angeles crusade in 1949 conducted under the canvas cathedral. That crusade brought Graham to the national spotlight.
Though there were doubts nobody could fill Billy’s shoes like him, son Franklin Graham replaced him in some aspect like speaking in the president Trump Inauguration and leading the Association. Then Billy lived a quiet life in his hometown that was not far from his Library.
