The following story was written by Lori, from Woodstock, Ontario. Lori takes literacy classes at Woodstock and District Developmental Services. She is 31 years old. She has two sisters and one brother, plus a niece and nephew who are four and six years old. Lori's hobbies include singing and writing. She has a cat and a dog. She likes to collect elephants and angels. Lori works at a local factory as an assembly worker. She also takes a computer class at Arc Industries. Her favourite TV show is Touched by an Angel. It's a show about angels who come down from Heaven to help people who need help in their lives.
I am writing to tell you how much I love Touched by an Angel. It is a very good show. The actors are wonderful in their roles.
Della Reese is great at playing Tess. She is a warm and loving supervisor to both Monica (Roma Downey) and Andrew (John Dye.) Tess can be tough when she has to be. Roma is wonderful as the angel of healing. She has a heart as warm as her smile. When she says "God loves you", it brings tears to my eyes. It's so beautiful to hear. Monica can be funny when she makes mistakes. John is good at playing Andrew. The Angel of Death. He's warm, gentle, compassionate and understanding. Not to mention a real handsome hunk.
The show has true stories that pull at the heartstrings. It makes you cry, and laugh at times. It has taught me a lot about God and how he works in our lives. I have a better understanding of Him.
Thank you for keeping this wonderful shows on the air. I only hope it can touch the lives of those who need a lifeline to hold onto. It has strengthened my faith in God. He is my Father, and best friend. I know he is the true inspiration behind the show.
