Ruth Bell Graham Grave Stone - Billy Graham Library - Charlotte, NC 11-26-10
June 10, 1920 to June 14, 2007 - Ruth Bell Graham was born in China to missionary parents and carried a lifelong love for the people of this land. The Chinese character for Righteousness is placed at the top of the stone. The same character is on her father's gravestone in Swannanoa, NC. While riding down the highway years ago, Ruth noticed a sign beside the road: End of Construction - Thank you for your patience." With a smile, she said that these were the words she wanted on her gravestone. This grave marker is a natural fieldstone from the mountains of NC.
