Bless You, Tammy Faye...

I don't know if anyone saw Larry King a few days ago when Tammy Faye Bakker Messner made her last public appearance before her death Friday, but it was an eye opener. Not for the shock of seeing a woman ravaged with cancer, but a woman who was brave enough to face her public one last time. Throughout her entire life, from The PTL Club to the scandals to becoming a sort of cult hero, Tammy Faye faced it, mascara and all. When it came down to over a ten year battle with cancer, she kept on living with the grace she was given. Many people didn't agree with her on religion, the way she sold it or even the makeup she wore. In the end, she made her peace with the world and no matter how rough life is, always keep the faith. That, and have your makeup bag handy. You'll never know when you'll smudge your mascara.
