Rockin' God Till the End

Ms. Tammy Faye has passed away after a very long battle with cancer. What started as colon cancer in 1996 spread into her lungs. By the time of her death on Friday, Ms. Tammy said she weighed a mere 65lbs.

I would like her legacy to be positive quotes and not mascara so Upchuck will send her off with her words:

“Don’t let fear rule your life,” she said. “Live one day at a time, and never be afraid.” But she told well-wishers in a note on her Web site in May that the doctors had stopped trying to treat the cancer.

In an interview with CNN’s Larry King two months later, an emaciated Messner — still using her trademark makeup — said, “I believe when I leave this earth, because I love the Lord, I’m going straight to heaven.” Asked if she had any regrets, Messner said: “I don’t think about it, Larry, because it’s a waste of good brain space.”

I know that Ms. Tammy will be rockin' heaven Tammy style...full of love for God and human kind. Rock on Tammy.
