Graham died earlier Wednesday in Buncombe County, N.C.at age 99.

"I had to sort of slap myself to really just speak to him and be involved with him in that instance", he said.

I am saddened to hear of passing away of the late Rev Dr Billy Graham.

Jeff Manning, senior pastor at Unity Free Will Baptist Church remembers watching the Billy Graham crusades.

"We are United, and are ready to march under the banner of Almighty God, taking as our slogan that which we have on our coins, 'In God We Trust, '" Graham once said.

And while he became spiritual counselor to almost every President, Democrat or Republican, from Harry Truman on, the evangelical movement lurched sharply rightward. Few men in history have received that instruction as humbly, or carried it out as diligently, as Reverend Billy Graham.

See him also pictured a decade ago with living U.S. presidents at the unveiling of his library in North Carolina.

Goeglein said staff members thought Graham would decline, because he was already 82-years-old and "not in the best health".

"He was not a civil rights leader, but he was a righteousness leader".

Northeast Students To Join National School Walkout
The Women's March's Youth EMPOWER group is planning a national school walkout on March 14, a month after the Florida shooting. In some cases in South Florida, schools let their students out early to facilitate their right to protest .

"I had never seen anybody so excited to spread the word about Jesus Christ", Pastor Stacy King-Chaney says.

Farris said hundreds of people made decisions for Christ after hearing Graham that night.

Graham visited China in 1988, also at a transformational time for the Asian giant which was undergoing an economic overhaul under Deng Xiaoping's policy of "opening up". "Your were awestruck by how simple but powerful his message was". "I have already looked through it myself and I think she will just probably cry when she looks through this book", Ruth Singleton said.

Calvin Mercer, a former city councilman who is a professor of religious studies at ECU, emphasized how important Graham was for evangelicals and for American Christianity.

Deryl Graham said his family wasn't mourning Wednesday and was actually glad to see his uncle released from the body that had begun to fail him in the last two to three years.

In 1959 Graham travelled to Australia attracting over 143,000 people to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) as well as 150,000 people at the Sydney Showground and Cricket Ground.

Dubbed "America's pastor", he was a confidant to USA presidents from Dwight Eisenhower to George W Bush.

Billy Graham was named by Americans as "One of the Ten Most Admired Men in the World", a record-breaking 59 times with the Gallup poll.
