"Touched by an Angel" was a popular TV show back in the late 1990's. Greg and I used to watch it every Sunday evening. We always loved the part of each show when the angel Monica would tell the person how much God loved them. John Dye played the part of Andrew, the death angel. He had such a kind face and was the the one who would take the person to heaven when they died.

I had listened to the song "Testify to Love" in my car this week and had written it down as a reminder to post for "Then Sings My Soul Saturday". This song was sung by Wynonna Judd in an episode about a little boy named Petey who was dying.
This morning as I was sitting at my computer to write this post, I clicked on KLove. That's the radio station I often listen to on my way to work. In the section titled "In the News: Most Clicked Stories", one headline caught my eye. It read 'Touched by an Angel Star Dies'. I quickly hit the link and read that John Dye, the actor who played Andrew, died of a heart attack at the age of 47.
I remembered the trip Greg and I took to San Francisco with my nieces Kristin and Katie. We were having brunch in a hotel restaurant. The girls were loading their plates with food when they came running back to our table to tell us that the angel Andrew was there! It was John Dye who was having brunch with some friends. They wanted to go up and get his autograph but we didn't want to disturb him. But I have to say he did have such a sweet face. How sad that he died at such a young age.
I was planning to post the Avalon version of "Testify to Love" but changed my mind after reading of John Dye's death. Here's Wynonna singing in the episode I mentioned.
Blessings and love,
