Re: The Reverend Billy Graham on a CLT - DCA flight

I feel I need to add this to this discussion per my continuing lifetime admiration of Rev Graham.
As many, I first started watching his TV ministry series as a child.
Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to catch many of these TV
specials as they were on the local networks.
After I moved to Charlotte CLT to work full time for Piedmont in 1986 after serving as a customer service agent for Piedmont part time since Oct 1984,
I was alone in a large city and did not know anyone, only those I worked with.
The first months from July until October 1986, I worked night shift and
on the way home from the airport each night, tuned into WMIT Black Mountain
Christian Radio, a station I have been told Rev Graham started.
They called it at that time, "The Carolina's Christian Voice".
There was a radio minister at the time named, Bill Pierce, whom had one of the
most comforting radio shows to this day.
Each night on the way home, I listend and was comforted after a long nights work
at Piedmont. It became synonymous with my time in CLT in my memory.
The People of Piedmont have always been and still are comforting, loving people
who I have found are good friends and can be turned to in times of trouble and
are excellent in comforting those who need comfort.
My friends at Piedmont who worked with me both in TRI and CLT have been among
the best friends of my entire life.
I add that to a long list of things I am thankful for over the years.
As well as the Piedmont People in my life today who I still am able to keep in touch with!
God Bless you all, you are truly the most high caliber people I have worked with!
