(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The Reverend Billy Graham's mission in Oklahoma City attracted $102,000 people to the Ford Center.

People from all over the state flocked to Oklahoma City's Ford Center Sunday night to hear the 84-year-old evangelist speak in what could be his final mission.

In his sermon, Graham talked about 19-year-old Alicia Layne who died in a car accident earlier this month after attending a youth rally in preparation for Graham's visit.

Grahams says Layne's faith has inspired and touched others.

Her parents gave Graham's mission the $29 that was left in their daughter's pocket after the accident.

Graham says he wants to frame the money and give it to her church as a living memorial.

This is Graham's 4th visit to Oklahoma City.
