So. The Money Grubbing Piece o’ Shit

won out after all.

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.
The news came the same day Billy Graham said he and Ruth will be buried at the recently dedicated Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.

If you’ll remember, we covered this last December. Ruth was pretty specific.

…Ruth Graham has told her children that she doesn’t want to be buried in Charlotte. She has a burial spot picked out in the mountains where she raised five children, and she hopes her husband will join her there.
Ned Graham has been working to convince his three sisters, Gigi, Bunny and Anne, that their mother’s wishes should be followed.

Well, she’s ‘entering the final stages of life’, so what does she know? And old Billy is in no shape to battle the financial Franklin forces:

… Graham, who is 88 and suffers from fluid on the brain, prostate cancer, Parkinson’s disease and age-related macular degeneration, responded by saying the decision would be his and his wife’s alone.

They make me sick.
UPDATE: Bless her sweet, sweet heart ~ she’s gone.

    I have followed the Graham family discord on my own blog, and I am deeply saddened that Franklin seems to have usurped not only his father’s evangelical empire, but his parents’ final wishes as well. Bittersweet.
