    I remember that song. As a child it was just a catchy gospel song; as a teen I wondered what it really meant. Still do.

    Very Welky. Hey, does anyone remember when Lawrence Welk singer Kathie Sullivan wenton ABC's FRIDAYS as Andy Kaufman's fiancee and that she had led him to faith in Christ?
