A private ceremony was held at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove in Asheville, North Carolina, on Saturday morning. Then, Billy Graham’s casket was carried outside to the waiting hearse. Billy Graham’s hearse departed from The Cove around 11:30 a.m. Franklin and Jane Graham drove behind the hearse, followed by Billy Graham’s daughters, Anne, Ruth, and Gigi, and their families. Many of Mr. Graham’s grandchildren were also part of the procession. Law enforcement officers lined the

driveway as the hearse left The Cove. The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove was founded by Billy and Ruth Graham. They wanted a place where people could go to study the Bible, grow closer to God and experience the beauty of God’s creation. Mr. Graham and his late wife lived in nearby Montreat, North Carolina, in a simple log cabin-style home with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mr. Graham died in his sleep there on Wednesday morning, Feb. 21. FULL STORY
