Ruth Graham: ending chapter of a rekindled romance story

“I am so grateful to the Lord that He gave me Ruth, and especially for these last few years we’ve had in the mountains together. We’ve rekindled the romance of our youth, and my love for her continued to grow deeper every day. I will miss her terribly, and look forward even more to the day I can join her in Heaven.” – Billy Graham, June 14, 2007

Statement released by Billy Graham the day before she died:

“Ruth is my soul mate and best friend, and I cannot imagine living a single day without her by my side. I am more in love with her today than when we first met over 65 years ago as students at Wheaton College.”

  1. I am so sorry. I met and worked with Ruth in the Counselling Room at Harringay in 1954. She was wonderful !

    My thoughts and prayers will be with you at this very sad time.
