"Norma Zimmer dies ; Billy Graham hospitalized"

John and Doves,

Norma Zimmer, who was the Champagne Lady of the Lawrence Welk Show for many years, has passed away on May 10 at the age of 87. She was an ardent Born Again Christian.

She sang at many churches and at the Billy Graham Crusades. Here is one of her beautiful hymns :
His Eye is on the Sparrow ( and I know He watches me )
