The first lady of evangelical protestantism, the wife of Billy Graham went to be with the Lord today at 5pm EST. Billy Graham had this to say:
“Ruth was my life partner, and we were called by God as a team. No one else could have borne the load that she carried. She was a vital and integral part of our ministry, and my work through the years would have been impossible without her encouragement and support. I am so grateful to the Lord that He gave me Ruth, and especially for these last few years we’ve had in the mountains together. We’ve rekindled the romance of our youth, and my love for her continued to grow deeper every day. I will miss her terribly, and look forward even more to the day I can join her in Heaven.”
God’s deepest blessings to the Graham family.
Thank you Ruth for your life of ministry, support, and integrity.
Ruth Bell Graham (June 10, 1920 â€” June 14, 2007)
