The funeral will take place under a tent, a reference to Graham's earliest crusades.

Trump said last week that Graham was a "great man" who had a "great family" and was "for us" - meaning Trump's campaign - from the beginning. The procession traveled 130-miles to bring the evangelist's body back to his hometown of Charlotte.

As a mark of respect for the memory of Reverend Billy Graham, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, that on the day of his internment, the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff.

His casket was carried by six pallbearers, including his grandsons and husbands of his granddaughters. His coffin was built by inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana, who typically construct caskets for fellow prisoners who can not afford one.


In the coming days Billy Graham will be laid to rest alongside his beloved wife in Charlotte at the library that documents his life and work.

Congress is likewise demonstrating its collective admiration of Graham by deciding that his body should lie in honor in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol this Wednesday. Two of them were Capitol officers who had died on duty and the third was Rosa Parks, reports WBTV.

A ceremonial procession for evangelist Billy Graham moved from Asheville to Charlotte, North Carolina, as spectators snapped pictures along the route.

Graham's funeral on Friday will be attended by around 2,300 people, include Trump, Vice-President Mike Pence and all living former presidents of the US. The invitation-only service is scheduled to include at least 2,300 people. A Graham spokesman said Former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush will pay their respects in Charlotte Monday afternoon.
