Posted on February 21, 2018

MEMPHIS, February 21, 2018 — United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the passing of Reverend Billy Graham:

“Billy Graham was one of the kindest and most authentic men I ever met. His example was as inspiring as his preaching. In 1979, my first year as governor, he invited me to play the piano at the Billy Graham Crusade in Nashville. He took a considerable risk in doing that, but it is an experience I will always remember.”
