I don’t know. I would like them to do whatever Jill wants them to do. If she’d want it to be untelevised, I want her to have the service as she would wish.

Rush is going to be there today.

BTW, I do not think that Tony had life insurance. There is a trust fund set up to help the kids with their education.

Yeah, it’s pretty hard to get life insurance when a healthy man suddenly finds himself with a life threatening disease.

How we miss the guy already. I feel so bad for his family. This morning I awoke and found myself saying, two daughters, two daughters.

I feel for them and his wife.

Hugs to every one of you flakey flake Snowflakes at the same time! I can do this because I'm 6' 6" with very long arms, so don't try this at home. ;-)

Practice up, Tony. Don't wanna hear no excuses on the links when I get there!

BTW, I do not think that Tony had life insurance. There is a trust fund set up to help the kids with their education.

If there's any advice I can give to young people with children...no matter how healthy you think you are get adequate insurance now to care for your family in the event of your death. You can buy term insurance for very little money...if you wait until you know you need it you won't be able to buy it. I was one of those guys who thought I was never going to die. I had insurance at work and thought that was enough. Then I got a cancer diagnosis and now life insurance is impossible to buy. Don't put it off.

It’s upsetting when I see clips of Tony. I love watching and listening, but it’s devastating to face up to the reality that he is gone.

sl! I've not been able to watch any of the coverage, so whatever I've seen so far has only been by accident - his leaving hurt a lot more than I ever imagined. My mom taped all the tributes on fox for me to watch later but I told myself I was absolutely not going to miss his funeral if it's televised, even if I have to tie myself to the TV.

I wonder if C-span might have something?

Tony rests now in the Everlasting Arms of the Lord. We will always miss him, but we cannot wish him back to the suffering he undoubtedly went through.

May God bring comfort, grace and blessings to his family.

Tony Snow will be in the Angel Band, as well. I'm sure that he will also do guest columns for the recently begun heavenly fortnightly conservative journal of record edited by WFB,Jr.

Requiescat in pace, FRiend.

I would like them to do whatever Jill wants them to do. If she’d want it to be untelevised, I want her to have the service as she would wish.

That has been my thought exactly. I want everything today to be as she wishes. I think it was incredibly kind of her to have the funeral open to the public.

Snowflakes are special,and so are the threads. We can’t go back- I wish that we could, but we can try to bring some of that fun to new threads.

It won’t be the same, but it still can be good.
