Ruth Graham (1920-2007)

Our loss, her gain.  I rejoice that she is in the presence of the Lord without pain.  Let's pray for the Graham family as they grieve the loss of this beloved saint. 

A daughter of Presbyterian missionaries who surrendered dreams of such work in Tibet after meeting Billy Graham, Ruth Graham died Thursday at her home, surrounded by her husband and all five of their children. She was 87.

"Whenever I was asked to name the finest Christian I ever met, I always replied, 'My wife, Ruth.'" Billy Graham said in a statement released Friday. "She was a spiritual giant, whose unparalleled knowledge of the Bible and commitment to prayer were a challenge and inspiration to everyone who knew her." (Source: Chicago Tribune)
