CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Potentially thousands of people will say their goodbyes to the Reverend Billy Graham over the two-day public viewing.
On Monday, George W. Bush, along with his wife, visited the closed casket of Reverend Billy Graham.
"I am unbelievably blessed to have met him. I also had the honor of bringing my mother and dad’s greetings to Franklin and his family. Billy Graham and dad were great buddies. And I know he
wished he could come to. But he’s not moving around much these days. His spirit and heart is here. Anyway, God bless Billy Graham," Bush said.
Bill Clinton is expected to visit during Tuesday. They're just some of the thousands expected to say stop by for the two-day public viewing.
Graham’s followers are coming from all over. Randy Blank, a reverend, drove from Anderson, South Carolina.
"It’ll probably be one of the most special moments of all my life in terms of being a pastor. I’ve read several several books of his that I use so it just gives me a
connection as to who he was and who he will always be. I don’t think there will ever be another Billy Graham," Anderson said.
The last day for the public viewing is on Tuesday between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. People have to be shuttled in.
After the two-day public viewing, the next memorial event happening in Charlotte will be the private funeral which will take place here on
The guests list has not been made public but it is known that president Donald Trump will be attending.
