It’s so funny, but I thought about miss radioproducer the other day. I was thinking that it was so cool that she wished me a happy birthday a couple of years ago, how she would stay and chat with us sometimes after the show was over (I remember cracking up with her over celebrity baby names) and wondered what she was doing now.

(((radioproducer))))

This is so beautiful. I went upstairs to grab a cup of coffee and looked outside--the sun was shining so bright but at the same time---it was raining! So I grabbed the camera and just knew there would be a rainbow--ran to the back of the house and look over the trees--there it was! A rainbow!

See, there are our tears for loosing Tony today--but we can always remember his beauty and goodness at the same time. His smile was sunshine and his goodness was a beautiful thing to behold--Gods Rainbow

My heart breaks for his wife and children and those closest to him. What a tremendous loss.

"He was only 53 years old. There may be some wisdom in getting a colonoscopy at 50 after all."

Tony got checkups starting early and often. Unfortunately his mother had and died of the same thing when she was quite young. Genetics plays a big part in it.

What an absolute hoot! Even more so, because hubby and I were discussing our daughter yesterday, and he said much of the same. He instinctively knew what to do with our three sons, but having a girl was always a mystery, and he just hoped he didn’t mess it up. He didn’t; she’s a lovely, kind hearted twenty year old young lady, and will choose a husband well, because she had a good role model, and someone wonderful with whom to compare.

I loved that email he wrote about raising girls.

My husband and I were at the same place--wondering how we deal with a girl after having boys. But I think we did ok, since she is the one that felt it was her duty to serve her country by joining the military.

I can't quit thinking of Tony's kids......

I am so sorry you had to go through that. Is there anything your Dad could have done differently in his time with you before he died that would have made it easier for you?

Does anyone remember who it was that wrote the editorial tribute to tony snow awhile back. It was by a liberal, and I think in the NYT’s

That was terrific, especially the video of the folks at the White House giving him that terrific send-off on his last day. I’m sure many of their lives were enriched by having known him.

I can't quit thinking of Tony's kids......

I can't either; that's what saddens me the most. I'm sure Tony is resting in God's loving arms right now, so I'm not sad for HIM; I'm sad for his wife and children, that they won't have him with them, here on earth, anymore.
