Hi prairiebreeze!

I hope all is well with you.

I couldn’t NOT be here today...the Tony Snow thread was my first “favorite” thread.

I have missed his radio show since the day he left....and now, dang it, it won’t be back.

What a sad day.

Yes, we did, SE Mom.

Tony was really my first politics “teacher”...I learned so much by listening to his show.

But, of course it wasn’t always serious...we had fun!

Good to see you, too, MOgirl!

All is well with me, thanks for asking.

I hope you are doing well, also....other than the sadness of the day.

Thanks so much for the article. It just makes me soooo sad to know that such a beautiful, caring, giving, young person has been taken from us. Makes it very hard to understand what the plan is.

I hope God sends us another bright light to take his place; we need more good ones, not less.

But I suppose I shouldn’t be telling God what to do.

Prayers for his family.

My heart is so heavy at this news. I hadn’t been around news or online all day and was SHOCKED to read this.

Tony rests now in the Everlasting Arms and suffers no more. He had tremendous faith, a lesson to each of us.

Well, I suppose if we ask prayerfully and very very nicely, God would fill the need to send us someone like Tony. We sure need a leader...I just hope we still deserve.

Hello,

It is a sad day, it took me hours to actually post on this thread. We've lost a great man. Heaven, however, gained a loving and kind soul.

And to those that take the time and effort to see.....something far more wonderful than can be imagined.

You just gave me goosebumps.

I feel so badly for those that can't or don't take the time to notice God's blessings. They miss so much.

Thanks for the ping BB. I have been away from the internet all day but heard it this morning while enroute to a meeting.

A very sad day for FReepers all over the world.

I’m a monthly donor to this great forum but plan on donating a one time amount in honor of Tony Snow. He loved FRee REpublic.

I understood what you were saying about Tony being an instrument of God. We all are, but unfortunately there are some who are totally sound deaf when it comes to considering others.

I had to take a break to make pizza for dinner and was thinking, wouldn’t it be great if all Tony’s friends and admirers could gather for a giant pizza party and share the joy he brought all of us. Actually, all that’s missing here is the pizza!

hi tol,

~~sniff!~~

Tony would understand our sadness but would expect us to remember his laughter, his humor, his sincerity and not mourn extensively.

The best way I can honor Tony I’ve decided, is to recommit myself to living each day to the fullest, refusing to sweat the small stuff and to walk with God.

I hope that FOXNEWS does not go overboard in remembering Tony Snow, unlike the MSM did when Tim Russert died last month.

This has been an awful day....but the memories we have shared
here are wonderful.

Tony sent me some “Smarties” candies one time, because I said
I didn’t like them in an e-mail. They were his favorites, and he wanted me
to try some that “weren’t ‘bum’ Smarties” he said. I still
have a few little packages of them...and the picture that
he sent with them.

That’s my story.......

He was everything that defined a good and caring man. And he was a better spokesman for this administration than any other. If there were more like him in the party, heck, in the world, it would be a much better place.

RIP Tony and prayers for the Snow family.

It was very heartbreaking to hear about this news this morning. Tony Snow just judging from what I saw and heard on radio and tv was a really good and decent man. Condolences to his family.

I know you meant his predecessor, since his successor is Dana Perino, a bright and delightful lady. Feisty too.

****So was the legendary Mr Irving Berlin!****

Ann Coulter pointed out in her column this week that Mrs. Berlin was the only famous person to support Jesse Helms for re-election when all the Hollywood celebs were supporting his opponent.
