"I was a student a Mission Hospitals one time that she happened to be a patient. The softness of her smile and frailness of her body spoke mountains of strength and devotion to her Lord. I then knew there was Jesus. Thank you Ruth Bell Graham for showing me Jesus just by lying in a hospital bed. God Bless you for you blessed me that day."

"Many, many years ago, I was privileged to see Mrs. Graham and her husband Billy in Cincinnati, Ohio. I know that Mr. and Mrs. Graham are people chosen by God and I also know that she is with our Lord as I write this. I don't feel sorrow, except the world we know will be a bit more empty without this woman and her indominable spirit...but she really is still with us. Thank you Mrs. Graham..you will be missed...til we meet in heaven.

No,we have never met in person, but I can remember my christain mother watching GRAM_TV longer than I can even remember. I am now 54 and she has gone home 1987. The furnel, as hard as it is, will always be for the ones that are
left here on earth behind, and has not got to go home just yet. Extreme Sad but yet happy times. WE never know what to cry for because we are sad of our lost or because we are happy for their gain!"

"I just want to express to the family that they are in my prayers.I know it is very hard to lose someone you love. I have no concerns about where this sweet lady is. She is now standing by Jesus side. We can't even imagine the beauty that is surrounding her now.I was too young to remember, my sister told me that Rev. Graham visited the church we attended at one time. Tower Grove Baptist in ST. Louis Mo. She said we all went forward and Rev. Graham prayed for us. I may have strayed for a time Rev. Graham, but Jesus never let go of me. Thank you for the prayer. God Bless you and your family."
