Texas Family Drives 17 Hours to Pay Respect to Billy Graham [video]

Mrs. Fuentes credits Billy Graham’s teachings to helping her become a Christian, and later to shaping her entire family’s spiritual formation.

She said, “Billy Graham was used as an instrument, a tool. Every one of our children knows who Billy Graham is.”

The Fuentes family listened to tapes of Billy Graham preaching as they drove 17 hours from Schertz, Texas to Charlotte, North Carolina.

They and thousands of others traveled to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte to pay their respects.

Billy Graham lay in repose at the Library on Monday, Feb. 26 and Tuesday, Feb. 27. On Wednesday, Feb. 28 and Thursday, Feb. 29, he was honored in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington D.C. On March 2 thousands attended his funeral service and watched online as he was laid to rest and celebrated by friends, family, and spiritual and political leaders.
