While my wife and I were traveling in North Carolina last week, we visited the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.
Walking through the Prayer Garden, we were impressed at the simplicity of the grave of his wife, Ruth Bell Graham, who died in 2007.
An ordinary field stone, like many of its kind in that area, marks her grave. Inscribed at the top is the Chinese figure for righteousness, appropriate because she was born and reared in China, the daughter of missionaries there, and always retained her love for the Chinese people.
