Graham family in dispute over burial site

Billy Graham Library or The Cove are considered
Evangelist Franklin Graham said last month that the decision about where his parents will be buried is “personal” and he does not intend to enter a public debate about it. The word was out, however, that not all is settled.

Graham’s comments came after the Washington Post reported December 13 that he and his brother, Ned, do not agree about the location of the final resting place of their parents, Billy and Ruth Graham.

According to the Post, Ruth Graham biographer Patricia Cornwell joined Ned Graham and his parents in a November meeting to express their concerns that the couple should not be buried at the site of the Billy Graham Library, which is to open next year in Charlotte, North Carolina, and recently became a new option for the couple’s burial site.
