Billy Graham’s Grave Marker

Following the private interment service at the Prayer Garden located next to the Billy Graham Library, Graham’s grave marker will be put in place.

The grave marker is made of North Carolina stone. Graham selected the Scripture reference John 14:6 and the following inscription to be on his grave marker:

Billy Graham

November 7, 1918 – February 21, 2018

Preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
John 14:6

John 14:6 (New King James Version)—“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ ” (Only the reference is on the grave marker, not the text.)

This verse was central in Graham’s preaching ministry, and he often referred to it throughout his life.

Next to Graham’s grave is his wife, Ruth’s, grave; she died June 14, 2007, at age 87. Mrs. Graham’s grave marker quotes a construction sign she saw on the side of the road and selected for her marker: “End of Construction—Thank you for your patience.” At the top of Mrs. Graham’s grave marker is a Chinese symbol. Mrs. Graham lived in China with her missionary parents from 1920 to 1933. The same Chinese symbol is printed on her father, L. Nelson Bell’s, grave marker. The top of the symbol means “lamb”; the bottom of the symbol means “me.”

After a private funeral service on March 2, 2018, Billy Graham will be buried at the Billy Graham Library Prayer Garden, located at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in Charlotte. He will be laid to rest next to his wife Ruth, who was buried June 17, 2007.

The Billy Graham Library and the Prayer Garden will be closed to the public until further notice. (However, I have read it should reopen March 5, 2018. If you plan to visit the Billy Graham Library, check before arriving!)
