A hearse carrying the body of the Reverend Billy Graham made its journey from the North Carolina Mountains to his hometown Saturday.

The procession began Saturday morning at a mountain chapel at the training center operated by his evangelistic association in Asheville and ended in the afternoon at Graham's library in Charlotte.

It was announced Thursday that George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush, would not be able to travel to Charlotte for Graham's funeral.

Rev. Graham will lie in repose on Monday and Tuesday from 8 a.m.to 10 p.m. where community members can visit the Graham Family Homeplace on the library property and pay tribute to "America's pastor". The Bible says that he is 'the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.' God comforted a nation that day through a very special servant'. "The people of western Europe were so oppressed, suppressed, that they were not even allowed to speak what they thought was the truth", he said.

'His powerful message of God's love moved people to tears and motivated hundreds to come forward to commit themselves to Christ'.

"It really is a destination spot". Well, we came here. "Rev Billy Graham was an American evangelist and minister, internationally known for his devout faith, inherent humility, and inclusive nature".
