Since I was a young child, I have been exposed to the Reverend Billy Graham, especially when spending time with my grandmother, Ida Mae Dunn and her husband, Stanhope Dunn.

I have always been aware of the man's presence as a great evangelist, and as I grow older, the man's profound sincerity.

May God bless Billy Graham for we all have long been blessed by his beautiful spirit.
