Thank you Tammy for teaching all of us about faith in God and never giving up. Praise God - you are finally healed and sitting at the feet of God Almighty. May your soul rest in His peace and glory. And may God comfort and strengthen your family until we all meet again.

Tammy Faye was an example for many of us, how to get back up after life
throws you a heck of a curve!

Bless you Tammy Faye, the world will not be the same without you.

zedlepplin, Nicolas Martin, : People like you make me gag. You and your ilk
have such limited minds and limited ideas. Hopefully one day, your life will
crap out and you will have to know what it is like to dig
back out of your mistakes.
Go dance on someone else's grave.

This proves that my faith that God shall smite the evil-doers with suffering and death is correct.

I was just reading the history of the Carny....with the alleged quote of Barnum's There's a sucker born every minute"....It kinda made me think of some of the posts for some reason.

Oh, yeah, the way....I'm a poor Latina from albuquerque's south valley....and....and GOD wants you to send me your money. And if I'm ripping you off and make a gigantic air conditioned doghouse and live in a mansion an a pastor's salary....well...uh....I didn't know anything about it.

God has forgiven me why can't you?!?

now....uh....donde este mi dinero?

A nice lady, I've met her a few times. She wasn't her husband's keeper. He was boss, she was wife. I wish her the best in heaven. She soooo deserves it!!!!
