North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has ordered a Book of Condolences to be placed at the State Capitol for members of the public to sign in remembrance of Reverend Billy Graham.
The book rests on a small table at the foot of the George Washington statue in the Capitol Rotunda, and members of the public are invited to sign the book and add brief written condolences for Rev. Graham’s family from Friday, February 23 through Friday, March 2, 2018.
Governor Cooper will present the book to Graham’s family on behalf of the citizens of North Carolina.
The State Capitol is located at 1 East Edenton Street, Raleigh NC, and is administered by the Division of State Historic Sites within the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. It is open to the public Monday through Saturday, 9am-5pm.

Governor Cooper issued a memo ordering US and NC flags at state facilities be lowered to half-staff on February 21, 2018 — the day Rev. Graham passed away. Flags will continue at half-staff until sunset on Friday, February 23, 2018.
Said Governor Cooper:
“Billy Graham was a strong, humble, positive and passionate North Carolina man of faith who made a difference in the lives of so many,” said Governor Cooper. “Rest with God, Reverend Graham.”
Rev. Graham passed away at his home in Montreat NC (Buncombe County). He was 99 years old.
