Rest in Peace?

It's a scene that's played out by thousands of families every day . . . but when you're Billy Graham, it gets covered by the Washington Post.

Simply put: the Graham family has split over the question of their parents eventual burial.
  • Youngest son Ned wants his mothers' wishes honored; she's always wanted to be buried up in the hills of North Carolina -- and she wants Billy there beside her.
  • Oldest son Frankling wants them both to be buried on the grounds of the new Billy Graham Evangelistic Association museum that he's building in Charlotte -- a museum that features (among other things) a talking cow.
  • And Billy? He hates controversy.

Update: Billy Graham's response to this article was that he and his wife will choose the site of their graves; click here for the article in the Washington Post.
