Leaders expressed admiration and respect for evangelist Billy Graham, who died at his North Carolina home Wednesday morning.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP
VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE
FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH
‘‘Billy Graham was America’s pastor. His faith in Christ and his totally honest evangelical spirit inspired people across the country and around the world. I think Billy touched the hearts of not only Christians, but people of all faiths, because he was such a good man. I was privileged to have him as a personal friend. He would come to Maine to visit with Barbara and me, and he was a great sport. He loved going really fast in my boat. I guess you could say we had that in common. Then we would come home and talk about life. He was a mentor to several of my children, including the former president of the United States. We will miss our good friend forever.
FORMER PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER
‘‘Rosalynn and I are deeply saddened to learn of the death of The Reverend Billy Graham,’’ Carter said in a statement. ‘‘Tirelessly spreading a message of fellowship and hope, he shaped the spiritual lives of tens of millions of people worldwide. Broad-minded, forgiving, and humble in his treatment of others, he exemplified the life of Jesus Christ by constantly reaching out for opportunities to serve.’’
NORTH CAROLINA GOV. ROY COOPER
‘‘Billy Graham was a strong, humble, positive and passionate North Carolina man of faith who made a difference in the lives of so many. Rest with God, Reverend Graham,’’ Gov. Cooper said in a statement.
