Billy Graham Celebrates 90th Birthday

By SOP newswire2

 Evangelist Billy Graham celebrated his 90th birthday today with family and personal staff at a private barbeque near his mountain home outside Asheville, N.C., attended by all five of his children, most of his 19 grandchildren and many of his great grandchildren. Pictured are four generations of William F. Graham, including the evangelist and, left to right, his son, Franklin; grandson, "Will"; and great-grandson, "Quinn."

"I`ve learned that these latter years can be some of the most fulfilling of our lives," the evangelist said. "I am grateful for each day, thankful for the measure of health I have and am overwhelmed by this celebration. But I think we can come back and celebrate again next year."
