"The world lost an extraordinary man last week. The Reverend Billy Graham was an advisor to presidents and world leaders, and was a beloved pastor to all people. His grace, boldness, clarity and conviction for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ have made a powerful and eternal impact. He positively changed the course of history, and his voice will be greatly missed."
