In the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, located just off I-40 and not far from Asheville, is a beautiful little area called Montreat. The trees are thick and lush and green this time of year as folks escape from Charlotte and Greensboro and other locations in the flatlands to the cooler temps of the mountains. This is the home of evangelists Billy and Ruth Graham.
After years of failing health, Mrs. Graham is now in a coma and not expected to live. As the family gathers to say one last good-bye, the world braces itself for the news of her passing. Our prayers go to Franklin Graham and his family as they prepare for the loss of his mom ... a remarkable woman.
