Author Chuck Spinner wrote A Book of Prayers: To the Heavens from the Stars in 2008. The book is the compilation of the beautiful favorite prayers of 118 celebrities. Famed comedienne, Phyllis Diller, was among the wonderful people who sent in a prayer. Phyllis sent in a prayer that she composed herself. In fact, a while after she submitted her prayer, she sent in a second edition after making several word changes and recrafting her submission.
Diller died on Monday, August 20th, 2012 at her Brentwood home. She was 95 years old and was born in Lima, Ohio on July 17th, 1917.
This is the prayer that Phyllis submitted and one I offer to all on her passing:
On this happy day
I am thankful
For my blessings
And I pray
For renewed belief
This bond of love
The entire universe.
Phyllis Diller will certainly be missed, but the memories of the joy and laughter she provided to so many will long endure. She is another star in the heavens shining brightly.
