Donald and Melania Trump, Sarah and Todd Palin and other guests sing happy birthday to the Rev. Billy Graham on his 95th birthday on Nov. 7, 2013, in Asheville.

— Evangelist Billy Graham returned home to Monteat on Thursday following a two-day stay at a hospital in Asheville.

Graham, who celebrated his 95th birthday earlier this month, was admitted for tests and observation after experiencing respiratory congestion.

“Mr. Graham was alert and in good spirits during his stay,” Dr. William R. Hathaway, chief medical officer at Mission Hospital in Asheville, said in a statement. “We are pleased with the results of Mr. Graham’s evaluation.”
