"If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven"

Before there was Michael Jackson and his troubled life and death, there was Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, in the 50's and 60's. They both had troubled lives, in part due to their fame and celebrity, and maybe even due to over-prescribing doctors. But they both had spiritually devoted mothers who taught them to love Jesus. The two mothers probably hoped their sons would pursue the ministry rather than the limelight. Both Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, during their careers, made albums of heart-felt Christian hymns. Throughout their troubled lives, they both retained their mother's spiritual teachings.

I hope they are both rejoicing now, in answer to their mom's prayers, in Heaven's Bright City!
