Graham's rare honor at US Capitol

Graham's rare honor at US Capitol

From stadium Christianity to television evangelism, after Billy Graham the numbers were staggering, growth in the industry exponential. His casket will remain, until Wednesday, in his childhood home, which was relocated and reassembled in 2007 on the library grounds.

Gov. Roy Cooper issued a proclamation ordering a "Book of Condolences" be placed inside the Capitol rotunda, where it will be starting Friday through March 2, the day of Graham's funeral in Charlotte.

DeMoss says the invitation-only funeral is being held in a tent at Graham's Charlotte library in tribute to the 1949 Los Angeles tent revivals that propelled him to global fame.

The rare honour of placing an American's remains in the Capitol is usually reserved for USA presidents, military officials and politicians. The event will take place under a tent, a reference to the tent revivals that marked Graham's early preaching.

The couple's caskets were designed and built by inmates at the nation's largest maximum security prison, Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana.

Graham's casket, like much else about his funeral, was planned by the pastor long before his death. "Moved by this, the younger Graham requested that inmates make caskets for his mother and father". The Grahams requested no special upgrades to the caskets, but they were modified slightly for easier transport to multiple locations, a previous news release said.

The Graham family has invited President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and all living former presidents - Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama - to attend. Graham will then be buried next to his wife in a prayer garden on the library grounds.
