I knew Jessica Hahn in High School. I get upset to hear folks tear her down too. I used to sit on the bus with her every day on our way to BOCES. ONLY a MHS grad from 1978 will know what that is! Had many talks with her and she was a sweet kid. Jessica was a very spiritual teenager back then. She made mistakes and was mislead. I am so happy that Jessica got to hear forgiveness from Tammy Faye before she passed away. Jess broke down and cried about Tammy because she knows right from wrong. Jess, if you are reading this I am praying for you. I may never find you, but this is Donna from Massapequa. I signed your yearbook in 1977. Tammy Faye didn't deserve the attacks of the press. She was a good, kind, sincere woman. Seems like the woman in this got more attacks then the men. Rest in the arms of Jesus sweet Tammy!
