Here's what visitors will see when the Billy Graham Library reopens

George Bush

He died last week at his home in North Carolina at the age of 99 years.

"There weren't two Billy Grahams", he said, adding that his father believed in Heaven and has now gone on the journey that he'd been "looking forward to all of his life".

Trump, a Republican, took his place among about 2300 invited guests, along with first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen.

Following Friday's service, Graham was to be buried at the foot of the cross-shaped brick walkway in the library's Prayer Garden, next to his wife.

Franklin Graham, who delivered the main funeral message, said all of those qualities were part of the whole. It has been featured on Billy Graham musical compilations.

Lotz said: "I believe God is saying: 'Wake up church!"

Approximately 13,000 people - including former presidents George W Bush and Bill Clinton - filed past his casket during a public viewing in Charlotte. His pine plywood casket was made by inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.

Gifford told reporters that Graham always remained humble through his faith.

It's a cold but sunny morning in Charlotte, North Carolina, where mourners wearing scarves, overcoats and ear muffs are filing into a huge tent where the funeral service for the Rev. Billy Graham will be held. Most people were standing around talking to one another as recorded hymns were played.

Graham's late music director Cliff Barrows, who helped Graham plan the funeral service starting a decade ago, has said it was his favorite hymn.

Franklin Graham's funeral message followed shorter remarks by his siblings in a service that lasted just over an hour before an invitation-only crowd of approximately 2,000. President Donald Trump is expected to attend, but isn't scheduled to speak.

The funeral came at the end of more than a week of mourning that included crowds lining the road for a procession from Mr Graham's home in the mountains to Charlotte, where he grew up.
