As a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I remember Sunday mornings before Mass in Grass Valley, OR., catching glimpses of Billy Graham on TV. I remember my Mom’s appreciation for him over the years and I admired him as well. He was different from a lot of TV preachers and that “difference” earned him the label of “America’s Pastor”.
I agree with the strong sentiment that we were blessed to live during the time of such a special, God loving man who had a unique method of delivering God’s Word.
I recommend you read his obituary, it is an excellent read and very inspirational!
