Daughter says Billy Graham is alert, happy

Posted: Updated:
The family of evangelist Billy Graham is speaking out about his health.
Graham turned 95 last month and has been in and out of the hospital ever since.
His daughter Ruth has visited him twice over the past few weeks. She says he is alert and happy.

"I told him who I was, and I told him that I loved him and he said he loved me. And he indicated that he was uncomfortable. So I said, “Daddy, are you in pain?” And I said, “Does it bother you to hold my hand?” And he said, "Wonderful." You know, so he likes holding my hand. He likes people to hold his hand," she said. “His vital signs are very good, he's very strong, but his body is just wearing out, you know, it's a lot of miles on that body!"

Earlier this month, Graham's son sent out a statement asking for everyone's prayers on his father's behalf.
