I join the Christian community and the world to celebrate the illustrious and exemplary life of Evangelist Billy Graham who has gone to be with the Lord at the age of 99. He was a role model and a hero to many as well as a voice that has echoed for generations. A man I particularly respect – he was Counselor to kings, a Pastor to Pastors, Priest to Presidents and a consummate Preacher of the Word of God. Although he will be greatly missed here on earth, I am certain that he is walking the streets of gold in heaven. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and organisations at this time. He lived a life of remarkable impact and we will all miss him dearly. A legend has gone home. #BillyGraham
