The Reverend Billy Graham dies at age 99: His life in photos and quotes

Billy Graham died today at age 99.

Graham had bipartisanship relationships with all the U.S. Presidents from Truman to Obama. He was also one of the earliest supporters of the Reverend Dr.  Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, while at the same building one of the largest ministries in the world.

In 1992, Graham was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. His twenty-five years of life with Parkinson's, at an advanced age, is another sign for Parkinson's patients that they can continue to live useful and active lives after diagnosis.

All of these things makes up Graham's legacy as one of the most influential figures in history. Here's a look at his life in pictures with some of his quotes.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
