CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The son of the late Rev. Billy Graham shared a picture of his father’s grave marker Saturday, one day after the reverend was laid to rest at the library that bears his name.
Franklin Graham posted the photo on Twitter. It shows the reverend’s grave marker etched with the words, “Preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
The grave marker also references scripture -- John 14:6 -- a verse central to Graham's preaching.
Graham was laid to rest Friday beside the grave of his beloved wife, Ruth. His celebration of life was held under a tent -- a symbol of how he conducted his crusades.
Thousands came to pay their final respects, including President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump and dignitaries from around the world.
All five of the reverend's children spoke about their father at the emotional service.
