  • George Bush credits Billy Graham as the spark that finally turned him toward sobriety

- American evangelical Christian evangelist and ordained Southern Baptist minister Billy Graham has died at the age of 99.

His motorcade was led by eight highway patrol officers on motorbikes and included vehicles moving Graham's children and their families.

He is to be buried Friday on the grounds of his namesake library in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The motorcade left the mountain chapel at the training centre operated by Graham's evangelistic association in Asheville on a long drive along Interstate 40 to his library in Charlotte, the state's largest city.

As a mark of respect for the memory of Reverend Billy Graham, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, that on the day of his internment, the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff.

Phillips took FOX 46 through the library.

Phillips' favorite part of the library takes visitors behind the iron curtain, along Graham's travels. Pallbearers, followed by family, carried the coffin into the Billy Graham Library, which will serve as a backdrop for the funeral.

It was preserved and painstakingly reassembled, brick by brick and board by board on site.

'His powerful message of God's love moved people to tears and motivated hundreds to come forward to commit themselves to Christ'. Please join us as we honour his life and ministry and proclaim the same Gospel he shared for almost 80 years, said Lee.

"Billy Graham's one objective in life was to help people find a relationship with God that comes only through knowing Christ, and his desire would be the same in his passing".

"It really is a destination spot".

Then I mentioned something I'd been thinking about for a while-that reading the Bible might help make me a better person.

"We come together today, ' he began, 'to affirm our conviction that God cares for us, whatever our ethnic, religious or political background may be". Where else are you going?

'In a hard moment, Billy reminded me-and us all-where we can find strength, ' Bush said.
