Format: Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have purchased this in cassette and cd form (twice), a download — and others beg soft-touch me to let them borrow it and then to allow them to loan it out, so after another disappearance, I will be purchasing two MORE copies, and one will not be allowed to leave the house! You will laugh a lot, cry some, and find hope and a special peace, no matter what you or your loved ones situation is. It is likely to change your life (I am serious).
