I've been trying to figure out how I'll be able to make it to Nashville this weekend and still do all the other things that I need to do in the coming days, but that's no longer an issue for me since the family has decided the visitation and the funeral will be private. There will be a public memorial, but there’s no word yet on when that will take place.
The Cash family released a statement on Friday. It said, “The family of Johnny Cash, in this sad hour, is greatly comforted by the outpouring of love and respect for his remarkable life. We take solace in the knowledge that he is again reunited with his dearest companion, June. Our lives, and indeed the entire planet, will forever feel the emptiness of his loss, but his music and the greatness of his spirit will endure."
