Rev. Samson Ayokunle, President, Christian Association of Nigeria ( CAN ) has described Evangelist Billy Graham as the most humble and influential religious leaders well known in the world.

The US Capitol tribute will follow Graham's remains lying in repose at the family house, which is at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, his organization said.

The son of a dairy farmer, Billy Graham was born in 1918 off a dirt road in what is now Charlotte, North Carolina. It will then be flown to the U.S. Capitol to lie in honor on Wednesday.

His tombstone will read "Preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ".

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday announced the plans to honor Graham at the Capitol, a rite usually accorded presidents and other statesmen.

The Graham family has invited President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and all living former presidents - Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama - to attend. Cooper called Graham "without peer as an evangelist during his lifetime".

His coffin was built by inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, La., who typically construct caskets for fellow prisoners who can not afford one.

"Every time you were with him. he always made the other person feel as though they were the most important".

And as crews work around-the-clock to prepare for his memorial service, network and local reporters fill the airwaves with live updates from the parking lot of the Billy Graham Library, the site of Friday's planned funeral and eventual burial place.
