Tammy Faye Baker Messner Dies RIP

March 7, 2004 Eight years ago I was told I had colon cancer. The day before my birthday I had surgery.

May 1, 2004 I don't know HOW to say a proper thank you for the prayers you have prayed for me. I KNOW what prayer involves, first of all you have to actually stop and THINK about me, then you have to take your valuable time to ask God to help me, and to heal my body. I want to say thank you for that. I can feel your prayers, especially during the discouraging times when I'm feeling sick and wishing I didn't have cancer. When that happens I picture YOU asking God to help me. And I feel better!... Read Tammy's entire note

July 16, 2007 It has been such a long time since I've written and I am so sorry for the long delay. I have been in bed for almost a year now.

CNN broke into regular programming just after 8:50pm ET tonight to report the news of the death of Tammy Faye Messner. The former televangelist, singer and TV personality died Friday morning, but the family had asked family friend Larry King to hold the news until today. King told CNN's Rick Sanchez, "they wanted to delay it a full day so that the family could all gather together." In fact, Messner was cremated this morning and, as King explained it, her remains have been "buried in a remote part of Oklahoma." AP

Son Jay Bakker points out that Tammy Faye helped provide the bridge between the Evangelical movement and gay churches, particularly Troy Perry’s Metropolitan Community Church. Even if you’re not Christian or religious in any way, shape or form, you can’t deny Tammy Faye’s impact on our world. And, despite the terminal cancer, she’s still as cheery as ever. And her eyelashes still look swell! That video breaks my heart. Tammy Faye is a wonderful, true Christian woman. Count me as one of the Gays who is praying for her. We will always love and remember you Tammy Faye.
