PARKERSBURG, W.Va. — The Rev. Michael Seely of Parkersburg attended a Billy Graham crusade in Pittsburgh.
It was a long time ago, said Seely, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church on Juliana Street, but he remembers it was so moving only the most steadfast unbelievers wouldn’t change.
“You had to be a hard-line non-believer,” Seely said.
Graham, 99, died on Wednesday at his home in Montreat, N.C., where he retired to in 2005. Graham preached for almost 60 years at more than 417 services and events, which he called crusades, around the world.
