United States Senator Robert Byrd issued a statement late Tuesday afternoon in response to the death of Rev. Jerry Falwell. Falwell died Tuesday at his office at Liberty University in Virginia.

"Dr. Falwell inspired many people. He showed that, when one has faith the size of a mustard seed, one truly can do great things," Senator Byrd said. "My sympathies go out to his loved ones in these difficult days."

Rev. Falwell spoke in Cross Lanes, West Virginia a little more than a year ago. He addressed the Southern Baptists' Evangelism Conference at the Cross Lanes Baptist Church.
