Talk show host Kathie Lee Gifford says she came to Christ because of a film the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association put out when she was 12 years old.
"There was an altar call at the end of it, and I went down and asked Jesus into my heart," Gifford says.
Today, she joins close, personal friends of the Graham family at his funeral.
"Later, when my career took off, I was asked to do Christmas specials and I wanted Billy to be on my very first Christmas special," Gifford says. "I wanted a special on national television that was actually about Jesus. ... I think they (the association) was doing what they always do when they have requests for Billy... but Billy must've heard about it because then I got a call and they said, 'Dr. Graham would love to do the Christmas special if the invitation is still there.'"
She shared more memories at the funeral. Take a look.
