Of course most of you know that country legend Johnny Cash died early Friday morning. Famous for such songs as “I Walk the Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Ring of Fire”, the 71-year-old entertainer died of complications of diabetes, just 4 months after his wife, June Carter Cash, passed away. His climb to success was not perfect – he struggled with a drug addiction in the 60’s. Yet, through the influence of his wife, he found Christ in 1968.

You know, I can give all kinds of details of Johnny Cash’s life, but I never met the man. I can say all that I have read and watched over my lifetime about the Man in Black, but I can’t say that I ever really knew him. I don’t even know someone who knew him. I know the facts, but I don’t know the person.
