It is always worth reading what Billy Graham has to say:
Statement by Evangelist Billy Graham
On the Death of Rev. Jerry Falwell
Charlotte, May 15, 2007
“Jerry Falwell was a close personal friend for many years. We did not always agree on everything, but I knew him to be a man of God. His accomplishments went beyond most clergy of his generation. Some of my grandchildren have attended and currently attend Liberty University. He leaves a gigantic vacuum in the evangelical world.
“I am praying for his family, and especially the university that he headed.”
