It has such a hopeful message. Even though he's telling stories of the dead, it's really about living your life better and inspiring people to not have unfinished business.

He helps a lot of people. He really is a healer. I think he's basically on this earth right now at this time and place to heal. He is the real thing. I can't tell you how many times he's been right with me.
