I am very tired now and have to sleep. But I wanted to let you all know how wonderful it is to see how much love Tony Snow’s life generated in all of your hearts. God bless you all, and may God watch over Mrs. Snow and her babies.

Goodnight All..

Did PMSNBC preempt Russert coverage with tabloid ‘journalism?’

Disgraceful.

It would have been nice if CNN and MSNBC spent at least one half of what they spent on Russert on Tony.

From the conversations earlier with Cal Thomas, Tony became even more spiritual as his illness progressed.

Cal mentioned about giving Tony a number of books that he read during his illness.

no, radio producer hasn't shown up.

Griff did mention that he has been getting emails addressed to him as surfer boy. He than explained the nickname was from the radio show.

I just saw that last shot with TS leaving the White House, and everyone was out there...

~~~

I can’t imagine anyone else having that huge crowd of colleagues and receiving such visible appreciation for someone leaving the White House. What a thrill for him to bask in the glow of all that love. It was stunning.

I’m out for the night. It has been really great to spend all this time with everyone. I have to believe Tony would be thrilled with all the laughter, hugs, and kindness on this thread.

Way up thread, NordP suggested we all do 5 random acts of kindness in remembrance of Tony. It doesn’t have to be any thing major, just holding the door for someone or letting someone merge in front of you in traffic. NordP, would you be able to repost that? It was great.

Good night, everyone!

I have been in a car all day travelling, as my Grandma just died, and a while ago my mom told me, “Tony Snow died”.

I was stunned.

I knew that by the time I would be able to access FR, there would be over a thousand posts. I was right. We FReepers love Tony Snow.

This little Snowflake is standing in a puddle. :*(

Prayers for the Snow family. ((((Hugs)))) to all the Snowflakes. We will surely miss him.

I turned the TV off. My consolation is that cable numbers are immediate and perhaps somewhere in the basement of Fox someone will notice the precipitate drop in their viewers when Geraldo came on.

Probably so, as it’s so large.
Bill O did say he had converted
to Catholicism and I thought I
had read that he was a Catholic,

Found more than a couple of links
that state that:

http://tinyurl.com/5prqt2

“He does not have a great deal of reverence for the old-time idea of the objective, truth-seeking reporter:

“God, the source of all fact and truth, is objective,” he once told an audience at Hillsdale College, in Spring Arbor, Mich., “but journalists, who often know very little, are not.”

(This is unusually direct Godspeak from Snow, who is a Catholic convert and talks with little of the direct religiosity of the president.)

I have been in the hospital for the past few days (my twins are finally here!) and we have been so busy—so I just learned of this a little while ago and it just broke my heart. :*(

My family and I send our most sincere condolences and prayers to Tony’s family and friends over this very sad loss. I was so hoping he would be able to beat this cancer the way he bravely and faithfully fought it. :*( America has truly lost a real hero today. :*(

I remmember watching his closing statements on Sunday morning. I felt, this was a man who really knows whats right, whats important, and how to live. Tony was a man for all seasons.

I only hope his children grow up to learn how great their father was. He touched so many. Sometimes children don’t realize all the other people their father touched. Its such a gift to have such a great parent.

And it’s great idea, Lynne .. thank you. We can sure all be better people and extend ourselves to others, even in small ways.
