At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
My father @BillyGraham was once asked, "Where is Heaven?" He said, "Heaven is where Jesus is and I am going to Him soon!" This morning, he departed this world into eternal life in Heaven, prepared by the Lord Jesus Christ--the Savior of the world--whom he proclaimed for 80 years.
