Future Burial Plans for Evangelist Billy Graham Still Up in Air

Ailing Evangelist Billy Graham announced Monday he and his wife Ruth are deciding together where they will be buried.

The announcement was apparently sparked by a recent report the family is feuding over the issue.

Graham says in a statement the couple will make the decision and it won't come from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association or outsiders.

Graham said he and Ruth Graham have no disagreement about their future.

The 88-year-old Graham issued the statement from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

A family spokesman says Graham was receiving the third in a series of three monthly treatments for age-related macular degeneration, which has affected his eyesight and ability to read.

The Washington Post reported last week that Ned Graham, the couple's youngest son, opposes burying his parents on the grounds of a museum under construction in Charlotte.
