President Bush will attend Tony Snow’s funeral service, which will held be at 10 a.m. Thursday at Catholic University in Washington, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

I wonder if the President will speak. At any rate, you just know this will be tasteful, start to finish.

Wish I could attend. I live in the Baltimore area but I have chemo, and I hate dragging that pump around. But I bet it will be beautiful.

Everyone (especially Fox) did such a good job with covering Tony Snow’s death, but i really wish they would have read some more of his more spiritual writings. They were so good, and was really what impressed me and drew me to him especially after reading this one:

http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2007/july/25.30.html?start=1

If you haven’t read it it really is worth the time.

Maybe at the church they will read some of these. I hope so.

Here is my original message to Tony on this board which solicited his responding (in what turned out to be the last time he posted here)that he was fine. Always upbeat even to the end. Even though he probably wasn’t so fine. It wasn’t that long ago:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2022504/posts?page=101#101

Tony Snow...

If you are out there, then you know ..that its sometimes in suffering that we draw closest to our Lord. I’m sure you are at peace and are ready for whatever direction the Lord has for you. I’m sure everyone is hoping that you pull through, and thats natural, but if you don’t, I’m confident that God has a purpose for what you are going through and for calling you home early. We don’t really know exactly what its going to be like to crossover, but I’m sure its just a continuation of the Great Adventure that he has for us. So if His will is for you to stay and your situation to continue to draw others to Him , or if he urgently wants your services in the great beyond, it’s all in His will.

I’m in the same boat as you. Just diagnosed with Colon Cancer with Liver mets in March. Already seen the many blessings that flow. Already experiencing the flow of love and good will in others around me. Its really harder in many ways on our loved ones then it is on us, and I’m sure you already know that.

Anyway...God Bless you and your family and those going through this with you. I’ll pray for your loved ones..you pray for mine, that God will work His will for them through this.

God Bless

Then from Tony:

I couldn’t agree more about Schwarzeneger’s attitude. Wonderful! Faith is everything, friends, through good or ill...

Thanks so much for your kind thoughts regarding my latest unpleasantness. As often happens, reports of my imminent demise are greatly exaggerated. I’ve been fighting a bowel obstruction for the last month, and won’t travel until we get it fixed. Hence, the speech cancellations.

We’ve embarked on a pretty aggressive course of treatment, and I’m on the mend. As for cancer, all the signs are good: Treatments are working, and genetic tests indicate that a new course of treatment has a good chance of real success.

So thanks, as always, for the thoughts and prayers — and continue sharing them with each other for others in need (like Jim Rob). I can’t tell you what a source of strength and reassurance you are.

This will be my last post on this thread, (wow he got opver 2000 posts !!!) and I wanted to just say how clear it is to me, that a man like Mr. Snow and his love for God and others can be a powerful catalyst for good. And I loved hearing all of the posters here. In life sometimes your faith is often demeaned and it seems like the culture is spurning the kind of faith I think I saw/read in Tony Snow, and in the many posts here. It lifts my heart and makes me feel a strong connection when I read such wonderful faithful posts, and then realizing that there are many out there still who still have the faith of our fathers. It is comforting to me.

Rest in peace Mr. Snow. I haven’t physically written them in, but I will add your wife and kids to my prayer list and think of them daily for you. I will try hard to live the kind of life that you did. I’m sure you have heard these words we all long to hear: Well done thy good and faithful servant...enter into your rest!

RIP Tony Snow

Unlike the Democrat funerals, which inevitably turn into campaign pep rallies (Wellstone) or anti-war, anti-Bush rallies (Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, et. al)...

Bill O'Reilly spoke today about a trust fund for the Snow family. I just looked at his website and found the info:

How you can contribute to the Tony Snow Trust

July 14, 2008

In response to the many people who have asked how they can help, the Tony Snow Family Trust was set up today to help with Tony's children's education and living expenses. Jill Snow, Tony's wife, will serve as the Trustee, with Snow's three children as beneficiaries.

Donations can be made by sending a check payable to the "Tony Snow Family Irrevocable Trust" at the following address:

Wachovia Bank

ATTN: Charles J. Beal

4321 Collington Road

Suite 160

Bowie, MD 20716

You can also make a donation at HealthTransformation.net, the website for the Center for Health Transformation, an organization with which Tony was working to eliminate cancer as a cause of death. Posted by BillOReilly.com Staff at 4:17 PM

Wonderful news, dmd25. What a wonderful tribute to Tony, to be able to help take care of his family in a meaningful way. As we all know, Tony’s family was everything to him. I believe the response will be awesome—a blizzard of love for our Snowman!

I love it!!!! A great phrase, GC! Of course it made me cry again, but that is ok. (Am also listening to Hannity who is airing a long interview he had with Tony...whew...so good, but sad to hear his voice.)

The first thing I did in honor of Tony was to tell my husband and my parents how much I love them.

Perfect.

How very good it is to hear from you, dear rp. We have missed you greatly.

Tony was brilliant and talented, but he also had a special grace. We will all miss him terribly.

At 6 p.m. Britt showed a clip of Tony on his last day at the White House and I missed his exact comment—perhaps someone else has it—but I understood Britt to say this comment would also have been Tony’s very last thought:

“I wish I could have stayed longer”.

Omigosh I just cried over that. So poignant and we can’t even imagine his anguish knowing his time was drawing to a close...

Prayers up for your own healing.

The article is wonderful - started crying again because we’ve lost such a godly man. Different trials by Fire have drawn me closer to God. Yet the fear that the cancer brought intensified the comfort our Lord provides. I’m so grateful for the friends who helped me find Him. Thanking God that Tony’s witness will be able to reach others through articles such as this one you posted.

I'm trying to understand how a man's death who I never met could knock me for a loop. Why?

I think it's partially because it brings back memories of my mom and her 7 year fight against breast cancer. She lost that battle in 1979 at the age of 52.

She, like Tony, never complained, could talk with anyone about anything and did NOT judge.

I also think that because he was such a good man, I fear that there are few left like him. (Of course, we have many good men here on ATRW and FR). My hubby, for one.

Bill O has excellent memories of "Snow".
