Billy Graham’s sister Jean Graham told a humorous story about President Donald Trump during the reverend’s funeral Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Graham started on a personal note, telling the audience, “You are here because you love him. But you don’t love him like I do. And you haven’t loved him as long as I have.”

Then she recalled, “When the president saw me today, he said, ‘My goodness, your family has good genes.'”

Graham, turning to Trump in the audience, said, “Well, you didn’t know that my name is Jean.”

The audience erupted in laughter.

Jean went on to deliver a beautiful eulogy, saying, “My other brother and sister have gone on, and I was reminded when I heard that my brother died of the song that the choirs used to sing, ‘Heaven Came Down and Filled my Soul with Glory.'”

More than 2,000 people, including Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Karen Pence, attended the service at the Billy Graham Library.
