>Headstone With Purpose

>Billy Graham’s wife, Ruth, died a couple years ago, but only this morning did I learn how she wanted her headstone to read.

Googled it, and here it is:

Tough to read, simply says:

End of Construction; Thank you for your patience
I really like that…perhaps enough to steal the idea and use it on mine…
Have a dear friend whose first two wives passed away very young. When Sarah was dying, she told Phil she wanted her headstone to read, “Where Will You Spend Eternity?”  A few years later Phil’s second wife died; she was buried next to Sarah with the words of one of her favorite songs carved into her stone, “In the Presence of Jehoveh.”

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
