Just heard Mike Emmanuel on Fox say no cameras inside the Basilica.

I am trying to draw from Tony’s positive outlook and I am not doing well at all.

You are doing fine, save. We are allowed to mourn his loss. Then we'll pick ourselves up and go on and do our best to carry on those wonderful lessons we learned from his remarkable life and outlook.

Hey rd, that looks like every person who ever posted on the Tony Snow thread.

Perhaps this is the time to again post one of tony's last messages to us.

"One consoles as one can; with love and steadfastness. The purpose of consolation is not to proclaim judgment; that’s someone else’s job. In times of grief, one gives one’s heart to another, in ways that will provide solace rather than pain — to embrace, them, help them and support them. Paul notes that one needs to be all things to all people in practicing one’s faith. And in times of grief, one must be a selfless friend."

sl, like I said, I've been avoiding the Tony threads because it hurt so much but I am so very, very glad his kids will get to read these some day when they're older!

Has anybody suggested maybe making one tribute thread for the Snowkids? Kind of like an e-scrapbook with all the best & most moving remembrances of freepers & public figures so they can open it up whenever they need a (((hug)))) & remember just what a wonderful treasure their Dad was to so many people?

Thanks for all your help.

It’s been a bad week and I have not been free to go online.

I’ll be out of the country next week, as well and I am not sure I’ll be able to get on as much.

Hugs.

Another melting Snowflake reporting in—I just can’t believe why we’re all here. I’m crying and I haven’t even read any of the threads yet!

Thank you for starting this thread, saveliberty. We have to remember that this is a Celebration of the Life of Tony Snow, dearly loved by so many of us.

Thank you so very much for posting this article, leilani. What a superb example of facing death with dignity.

From the final paragraph:

A man at peace with facing death as a final friend,Tony has finished the race. May "His Soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the Mercy of God Rest in Peace”.

Good morning, sl. Sad day for us.

I know what you mean about having fun on threads. The Levin thread is most like our SNOWFlake thread as far as we are a bunch of friends who like to gather there. Of course we love Mark, and he posts from time to time... not nearly as often as Tony did, but when he does we go wild. Mark was also a friend of Tony’s.

On one level I still can’t believe it either, GC. I saw a mention of it on FoxNews I think it was yesterday, and I found it hard to process the words “Tony Snow” and “funeral” put together.

Tony’s mother died of this very same cancer when he was 17. I don’t know if insurance companies ask you for family history or not.

It’s a different show than Tony’s.

I used to listen and FReep and all of a sudden I would hear Mom chuckling over something Mark had said over the air. LOL I didn’t realize that she was in the room.

Here’s that sorrowful reality of a day .. the official good-bye for those left to miss their loved one and recognize the time we were blessed to have him with us on earth.

May angels surround and comfort Tony’s precious family and loved ones today and every day .. until they meet again.

Mike Emanuel, who was very close to Tony, said there will be no cameras inside,

that FNC brought over a couple of busloads of colleagues to the funeral,

that Pres. Bush will be among those speaking, incl. Tony’s brother,

and that there will be some updates during the proceedings.

God bless you thru eternity, Tony, and thank you for showing us your beautiful way of living to try to emulate.

I am glad we can all be together today and lean on each other. Today is going to be difficult. I know for me...the initial shock is starting to wear off and it is just now starting to be more real that Tony is gone. I miss him terribly, and the thought that we will never again feel the excitement of the Friday Tony Snow Factor.

Hopefully we can start some sort of monthly snowflake reunion thread?

A.V., can you re-post your #395 on the original thread here? It would be so appropriate here.

I’m hoping the FNC cameras will be set up outside the Basilica but there’s nothing there yet.

leilani, what an absolutely beautiful idea! A way for all the Snowflakes to come together. Actually it would be for any of us too, when we need a Snow hug! It would probably set a record as the longest FR thread ever!
