I saw her on Larry King. She is a faith filled fighter. I hope I can be like that if I get ill.

PS. She was able to remember her favorite bible verse as well.
It surprises me sometimes at how cruel can be to someone after death.

If you hate tammy that is fine.. but this woman would of loved you and accepted you..
STOP this insane posting... The woman is gone... But she apolpogized and I am sure god forgives her. Jesus forgave the romans as they nailed him to the cross.
If jesus can forgive those that took his life, you can forgive tammy faye.

If you can't forgive your hate will be a one way ticket to hell..

She seemed to really be a non judgmental person. She accepted the gays and everyone.
As god doesn't care how you look..
Her faith in the end -is what really made me see through all the media hype over tammy faye who she really was inside.

God Bless Roe Messner and Tammy's children

Rest in Peace Tammy Faye...My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Even as very sick as she was, she was inspirational, and caring for others. A very classy lady, who always held her head high, and thought of others. I wish I could have met her. We all could use a dose of her positivity. She is sadly missed.
