“I can only imagine the scene in heaven this morning, all those tens of thousands of people who came to know Christ at those crusades over the years welcoming Billy Graham home,” Starnes said. “What an amazing morning that is.”

He said Graham, who had been in ill health for a number of years, is no longer in pain and has been reunited with his wife, Ruth, who passed away in 2007.

“What a great day in heaven it is today, but very sad for all of us left behind,” Starnes concluded. What a wonderful day in Heaven, indeed.

Losing Graham is a monumental blow, but I am happy to know he is finally in Heaven now. He lived a long, successful life and led many  people to the Lord.
