Johnny Cash words on his near death experience …
“a light grew around me and soon it enveloped me, and it was more than light, it was the essence of light, a safe, warm, joyous brilliance growing brighter and more beautiful every moment. I began to drift smoothly into its very centre, where it was so much better than anything I’d ever experienced that I could possible describe it. I was unbelievably happy. I’ve never felt such utter joy”
Much love from The O’Donoghue Family
