I too was one of those who was (and to a large extent) remain skeptical of the evangelical community. But in later years, there were times I had begun to see you in a different light, especially as you were dealing with the recurrence of cancer. Such strength and optimism in the face of adversity. I wish I had even a small portion of the great faith and ability to "carry on" that you possessed, especially now in this time of my life. To those who knew you, I'm sorry that you are no longer with them in person, but I know you're with them in spirit. May your body and soul both be at rest together.

I will miss you very much, Tammy.
But I can't help but smile thinking of you finally at home with The Lord.
The world is a much sadder place without you, but we will all meet again.
I love you!

What a bittersweet time this is. I'm sure there is great rejoicing in heaven, but a terrible loss for Tammy's family, friends, and fans. Her beautiful spirit lives on and I am so thankful to have known of her and the great things she has done for the kingdom of God. What a strong and courageous person. You will be greatly missed and I know I look forward to seeing you in heaven. I hope she knew how many lives she touched during her short time here.

When I heard of Tammy Faye's passing, I felt this great hole open up.

Many years ago I was going thru a very rough time. Tammy had a popular song out at that time called "Run Toward the Roar". The words to that song became so deeply rooted in me, I, with God's help, was able to climb out of the hole.

To this day when things get rough, that song comes back to mind and keeps me going.

This earth needs so many more Tammy Faye's. Tammy was always upbeat and positive, no matter what happened. It didn't matter who you were, where you're at, or where you're going. She treated everyone equally and saw people as children of God.

We've had a loss here on earth, but God has gained another saint!

I'll always see Tammy Faye as
someone who was more REAL and OPEN than most people that wear less
makeup or no makeup at all and stay behind walls of cold-arms-length "dignity" so as never to be vulnerable to a cruel
world. We all have been wounded and as a result have had to struggle
against hardening our hearts and distancing ourselves from people,
especially when we have been hurt the most by people we love and
should be able to trust the most. She decided to stay open, loving and vulnerable, no matter what happened.
I like Tammy Faye and even admire her. She is one of the people
I'm going to look for in Heaven. I don't believe that even here on
earth, she would have thrown my past up to me or refused to speak to
me or pick me up off of the floor of my despair when I was hurting the
most.
In retrospect, I see Tammy Faye showing the world Jesus and His
unconditional love. At no time did I hear her say that it was okay to disregard God's Word and still go to Heaven. She just showed them that Jesus loves them and let the seeds of the Holy Spirit fall where they may. Isn't that where Christianity begins? "Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and body and love your neighbor as yourself." I pray in Jesus' name that I can get to that place someday
soon. Love, Beka

Tammy I am so glad that you aren't hurting anymore,even though I prayed for you everyday that you would get your healing. God had different plans than we did. I am a P.T.L. partner and was there many times. There was never a place like it and probably never will be. I know it would never be the same because you wouldn't be there. Tammy you made the show. I love you so much that words can never tell. I also came to your church in Orlando and went out to eat with you afterwards. It was when Jim and Linda Matheson was there. You may be gone now but our hope is we will see you in Heaven when our time comes and one thing I will keep your spirit alive with your music. I play it every day and as long as I have that you will always be in my heart. My prayers also go out to Roe, Tammy Sue, Jamie Charles, and even to Jim. I know he is hurting too because you can't be married to someone for thirty years and not have any feeling for them. I can't tell you how blest I have been all these years through your ministry. You are with God now and you will never have any pain again and I know you are singing your little heart out for our Lord.God bless you,Tammy, and rest in peace. I look forward to seeing you again someday.And Roe I am praying for all of you too. Thank you for loving our sweet Tammy and standing by her side. There never will be another Tammy, she was a one of kind.God bless you all.

I am so incredibly sad right now. I can not stop crying. I wanted you to survive. I will never forget you. I am sure that the Lord is thanking you right now for doing all that you did.

To Tammy Faye's family and friends, what a special person she was and what an wonderful blessing and impact she made in our world. She was a true inspiration and strength to me. What a wonderful example of Christ's love and compassion Tammy Faye showed to the world.

I was your waitress on occasion at Keedy's in Palm Desert when you lived in the Palm Springs area. You were always chipper and approachable, fun and funny. Sometimes I ran into you at the local swap meet where people loved chatting with you. It is ironic that you NEVER chastised,criticized or judged anyone. . and yet, through your career you were ridiculed by the tabloids, made fun of by the public and hounded by the media in an unflattering way. To me, you were an inspiration in the face of adversity and incredible how you never waivered in your faith, belief and trust in God. You are my HERO - always. See you on the other side! Vera :)

Tammy I will miss u dearly. Although I am only 28 years old I remember seeing u on television with the ptl as a child and was just mezmerised by this lady with the heavy make up crying and mascara running down her cheeks. Then I didn't see much of u until u came into my home via vh1 the surreal life. During that time i was struggling with accepting my sexuality. I soon watched the eyes of tammy faye and broke down when u said "God don't make no junk!"! Those have been the most powerful words I have EVER heard. I know u loved everyone and that's why I always knew I loved u and often envied your faith.
You will always be in my heart!

Tammy faye was a very strong person. She had faith when the average would have given up. She was thrown to the wolves of the world but she held on to her faith in God. She is in Heaven for sure. She was beautiful. Love to her children From Barbara

To Tammy's family--

I'm not a religious man and have only seen Tammy Fae back in her days with the PTL. The heavy mascara, false eye lashes and the "tears" she shed on that show had little effect on me other than being what I felt was comical.

In fact, I had no idea that Tammy Faye was very ill until I saw her last television show with Larry King. I don't know why, but watching her struggle to to maintain decorum and dignity glued me to the television set.

I don't know why sitting here in front of this computer reading her messages she posted on line has driven me to tears. I don't even know why I'm sitting here typing these thoughts filling my head.

With all of the "troubles" that plagued television evangelists over the past 20 or so years, I always felt that she, and ex-husband Jim, were just part of that problem.

That feeling totally deserted me when I saw her on King's show just prior to her death. What a strong woman, who had a stronger belief in her place on earth and the afterlife, she was.

As I noted earlier, I'm not very religious, but I strongly feel I saw that show for a reason. Just what that reason was is unclear at this point in my life.

To Tammy's family, I wish you great peace in knowing all of the thousands of people she touched during her time with us. I hope it helps ease the burden knowing that there are so many people lifting her up.

As far as Saint Peter is concerned, I'm sure he was wating at the gate with a bag full of cheeseburgers, fries and plenty of ketchup!

Tammy Faye, I'm not sure why or how you touched me to even write this. I guess I will find out with time.

God bless you!

It is only the knowledge that you would not want anyone to be sad that keeps me from the pain of grieving the loss of someone so dear. Your inspiring and clearly God ordained exist from this earthly home has revived my spirit and renewed my faith. It has jogged my memory of days gone by, returning me to that first love! Memories flood my heart, the summer nights spent walking the grounds of PTL encountering prayer partners everywhere who were laughing and singing and engaging in prayer for one another, fellowshipping and being in a place that lifted us all beyond the cares of this world. In the years after as I lay in a hospital room I heard the unbelievable news as our haven began to crumble and wither and my heart broke! For days the many things unfolded and through it all, we travailed. Time moved on and a new direction opened up. We shared our Tammy with the world because it was time for the world to hear, to see and to know the real Tammy who was there to show them the real Jesus, His unconditional love and His strength, His promises and in the end, she once again, gave us light in a dark and dying world! Oh how we will miss her and how we all wish we could hug you Tammy Sue and Jamie Charles. We cannot wait to get together in heaven and know that Tammy will have the cheeseburgers waiting! In honor of her life, we shall 'run for the roar' and know 'we can make it'. My favorite Tammy memory, the day she made potato salad using kidney beans as a substitute for potatoes and lost either her nail or an eyelash I think it was........that was the best show. I remember once she had her pediatrician on and he was carefully discussed potty training and correct 'wiping' technique to which Tammy in her usual down to earth style simply cut to the chase and said 'well now Dr Pfanstil (sp) just how do you wipe right?' She was the best! She was us, only in Proverbs 31 true style! I will not fear and after review of this website I am also claiming those promises at the heavenly bank and I also claiming the victory over finances, praise God Tammy Sue, for that great victory! Now to find a church who shares that same faith, that same excitment and most especially that same unconditional love and non judgemental view of all God's children! To Roe, Tammy Sue and Jamie Charles, I know you know this but maybe someone else needs to hear, God loves, He really does!

If one truly lives and experiences life, there is no boredom. Tammy Faye truly experienced the full spectrum of life...the true ups and downs that life offers us...if we truly live it. She was never boring, and I thank her for that.

I loved so much to watch and listen to Tammy Faye on tv...starting back in the 1980s. I always knew she was for real, and someone who is for real...lives life for real, and that is not easy. It is not easy to be your true self, live your life as an open book, and dare to get back up after a fall and hold your head high. You do this, because you believe in God, and you know HE BELIEVES IN YOU.

Tammy Faye proved to us all that she believed in God, and she knew HE BELIEVED IN HER. Thank you our dearest, Tammy Faye...and thank you GOD.

My blessings to all of Tammy Faye's loved ones and to the world, who will miss her.

I was real sorry to hear of Tammy Faye's passing. But I know that she is now in heaven with God and is no longer in any pain. She was a beautiful person both inside and out.

I can hear Tammy's voice telling me everyday, "Don'tcha dare give up!" Her beautiful songs and faith inspire me to stay strong.
