Billy Graham will lie in honor in the US Capitol Rotunda

Evangelist Billy Graham marched with Rev. Martin Luther King at Selma

No funeral-related activities are scheduled for Sunday.

Crowds started to arrive at the arena at 4 p.m. that summer day, Houser's story said, well ahead of the scheduled 6 p.m. opening.

Garcia was lucky, he said, to experience that evangelism in person twice, the first time at a crusade in the Los Angeles Coliseum and again in
the 1970s in the (now-
demolished) Seattle Kingdome.

President Donald Trump and former presidents will be among the 2,300 people invited to the funeral, which will be held in a tent in the library parking lot, harking back to Graham's early days leading tent revivals.

Graham family spokesman Mark DeMoss said Thursday that the music and speakers will all have connections to Graham's life and ministry. I last attended a Billy Graham crusade in 1969, in Anaheim, California.

Graham's service will be the 32nd such ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda. Graham has finally reached his eternal home.

Graham's wife Ruth, who passed away in 2007, was also buried in an identical casket.

"There are countless numbers who began their journey of faith because of Dr Graham", Welby said. No one was with him except a nurse.

In a post on the First Baptist Dallas website, Jeffress called Graham "the most impactful evangelist since the Apostle Paul".

In remembrance of Graham's legacy, Governor Abbott has ordered Texas flags to be lowered to half-staff on the day of interment, as determined by the family.

Trump ordered American flags to be flow at half-staff at the White House and other U.S. public buildings and facilities on the day of Graham's interment. "I think Billy touched the hearts of not only Christians, but people of all faiths, because he was such a good man".

Billy Graham was good friends with Arkansas native Johnny Cash, who often appeared at his crusades, including the one in Little Rock in 1989. The remains of unknown soldiers from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War have earned the honor, as did 10 USA presidents - from Abraham Lincoln to Gerald Ford.

Each of the 50 states is permitted to contribute two statues of favorite sons or daughters. By associating himself too closely with a president, Graham said, he had compromised his principles in the service of power. Aycock's likeness has been in the Capitol since 1932. He was a USA senator, and his caped statue was contributed in 1916.

It was Graham's sixth such event - once called "crusades" but renamed "missions" after September 11, 2001 - in New York City, the site says, and his second in Queens.

"But Duca wasn't phased, responding, "'Respecting the dead' only applies to people who weren't evil pieces of [expletive] while they were living". Hawaii donated a statue of Father Damien, the Catholic priest who served the lepers on the island of Molokai. Crosby said of Billy Graham's brief sermon.

"Graham before he is laid to rest", they wrote in a letter to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The BGEA moved its headquarters from Minneapolis to Charlotte in 2004. For me, this is just a reminder that each one of us has feet of clay. After several years on staff at a Chicago-area church, the new leadership position at the Center was intriguing to me for a few different reasons. "That's personified by his support for the creation of the Billy Graham School at Southern".
