    "RALEIGH, N.C. — Ruth Graham, the ailing wife of evangelist Billy Graham, fell into a coma Wednesday morning and appears to be close to death, a family spokesman said. "She appears to be entering the final stages of life," said Larry Ross, Graham's personal spokesman."

    Thank you Martin!

    You are so very good at letting us know these things. I can't tell you how I appreciate it.

    Ruth Graham is a "real" person, isn't she? Our local PBS station has aired, occasionally, a Graham biography, with interesting anecdotes and quips from her.

    Billy will not be far behind, unless I miss my guess.

    No doubt a lot of Dr, Graham's strength came from her. Pray for God's will to be done, and comfort for the family.

    Ruth Bell Graham is a profound person in her own right.

    One of my all-time favorite poems is one of hers. God bless her at this time, bless her husband, and her family.

    "His Brother's Brother"
    by Ruth Bell Graham

    "Am I my brother's keeper?"
    No. He was his brother's brother.
    Zoos have keepers.
    Bees have keepers.
    Prisons have keepers.
    Only families have brothers.

    You are most likely right on this. I pray that Bro. Graham and his family will have God's grace and peace through this time.

    The WBC cult will have a heyday over these two funerals when the time comes.

    Pray for God's intervention

    Sorry to hear of this. I'll pray for the family.

    What is the WBC cult?
