RUTH GRAHAM, 87

The wife of the Rev. Billy Graham was his "life partner." According to The Associated Press:
In a statement, Billy Graham says he and Ruth "were called by God as a team" and that his ministry "would have been impossible without her encouragement and support."

The 88-year-old evangelist says, "I will miss her terribly, and look forward even more to the day I can join her in Heaven."

The family plans a private interment ceremony and a public memorial service.
Matt Lyons clocks in first with the news, with Brother Richard coming in close behind.

I give him less than 3 to 9 months.

You better believe the networks are fixing up their obit tapes as I type.

Gruesome, yet part of the biz.

And double points if I'm in the zone, barring a more accurate/precise prediction.

If Billy's 88, you can be sure the obit tape has been in the can for a long time...
