Johnny Cash was not only a legend, but was a close personal friend. Johnny was a good man who also struggled with many challenges in his life.

Johnny was a deeply religious man. He and June came to a number of our Crusades over a period of many years. Ruth and I took a number of personal vacations with them at their home in Jamaica and in other places. They both were like a brother and sister to Ruth and me. We loved them.

We are praying that God will comfort his family and staff at this critical time. I look forward to seeing Johnny and June in heaven one day.
