Class, Dignity, self-respect, character, decency, honesty.......

Words that all seem so inadequate.

The best word is family-man.

I pray for his family.

And I pray that in some way, Tony Snow, with all of his skilled awareness, knew how much he IS appreciated and respected.

He is an intellectual warrior and a giant that walked the earth.

Semper fi Tony, carry on....

My profound condolances to you FFV, as a friend of Tony’s I can imagine how you are grieving right now.

May you celebrate Tony’s life - people like him don’t come along very often.

God bless.

Our whole family is deeply saddened by the news of Tony Snow’s passing...

This has hit very close to home, as my brother had a pre-cancerous colon removed awhile ago, and recently had surgery to remove nascent cancer of the prostate.

Tony was the consummate pro and a great advocate of Conservatism — the real deal.

Yes. You're right.

This thread is like a FReeper family reunion. Tony would be proud.

I hope to join the “Levin” thread in December. I miss it.

Many, many condolences and prayers to his family. God needed a nice gentleman,a true friend and a great communicator by his side. Tony has been called home. He will be greatly missed.

Just turned on the computer and came here for news..... and found this sad, sad news. Such a loss, such a good man. I will miss knowing he is in the world.

But, I remember also that he was a man of faith, with a firm belief in God. I know where he is right now. He is home with the Lord, waiting for the rest of us.

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2Corinthians 5 vs 8”

There is comfort and confidence in this belief. I sincerely pray that in the hours and days ahead his family and ALL his friends, everywhere, will take solace in this. Tony fought his fight, and it was a good one. For the believer, however, the day of death is also Victory Day. But, for me today, I sigh and am sad at Tony’s passing.

Tony appeared to have two qualities that are lacking in our society.....humility and decency. We need many more like him. Sincere condolences to his family.

This world lost a great voice and Heaven gained a another soldier.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.

Our local radio carried Tony’s show, that along with watching him on TV, and then as Press Sec. is how I “knew” Tony...Prayers up for his family and friends. He will be missed by alot of us.

I’m crying so hard, I can’t even see to type.

I have one consolation I can think of- I know I’ll see him again but that doesn’t mean that I don’t miss him being here.

I still remember the days when all of the Snowflakes sat at pc’s and laptops, listening to Tony and typing comments on the daily radio show thread. I still miss those days, too.

God hold Jill and the children in the palm of His hands.

To Tony - I’m sure God is saying “Well done, good and faithful servant.

How about when Tony had George Allen on, and Tony mentioned on air what we were posting to Senator Allen!! *THUD*

Oh tol, I will always remember Tony telling him "they think you're hot!" Such a nice memory that will always make me chuckle.

Abba !
Father !
King of the universe,
I pray send your Ru'ach HaKodesh
to breath on the souls of Tony Snow's family
in their hour of need.
Breathe on them and draw them nearer to you.
I pray that if it be your will have them come to know your Son
I ask that peace and comfort be given
to his family and friends
I ask these things in the
Holy Name of Your Son
The Word of Elohim:
b’SHEM Yah’shua HaMashiach
Ahmain and amen !

DFU SONG: Let It Snow (yep, this one's for our friend Tony Snow)
DFU SONGS | 4-2006 | Lyrics, Doug from Upland

Posted on 04/25/2006 9:06:53 PM PDT by doug from upland

Helen Thomas. Get out! No soup for you!

CONGRATULATIONS, MY FRIEND!

MIDI - LET IT SNOW

Helen Thomas is very frightful...yes, the old bag is so spiteful
Someone saves the day we know... Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

Scum Gregory had been screaming...poor McClellan got a reaming
Someone saves the day we know... Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

As I'm listening to the news...there is one thing I so want to hear
That the sergeant at arms was called...Helen's thrown out on her rear

Then John Roberts calls seconds sloppy...that guy has a little floppy
Someone saves the day we know... Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

He'll be facing a daily grilling...but thank goodness he is willing
Someone saves the day we know... Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

Stuck on stupid are reporters...from the left come marching orders
Someone saves the day we know... Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

As I'm listening to the news...there is one thing I so want to hear
That the sergeant at arms was called...Helen's thrown out on her rear

GOPers they all try nailing...but for Hillary they're bailing
Someone saves the day we know... Tony Snow, Tony Snow, Tony Snow

RIP, American Hero.

Very sad. I will miss him. His last email to me was very positive, upbeat, and thankful - which was the way Tony lived his life. He always could look past problems and see the positive. I don’t recall ever hearing him complain. We should all live like that. Prayers sent for his family.

Great pic. A humbucker in the bridge position of his Strat -- very smart guy.

What I liked the best about Tony was his attitude. He never appeared to get ruffled, and always responded to his political opponents with grace and wit.

Thank you for your post, Dolly! It makes me cry, tho, knowing we aren’t going to hear Tony’s voice or see him again. I’m going to have to change my screensaver to that last picture to recall the joy Tony brought to all of us during his very short life.

It’s taking me so long to get thru this thread because I keep referring back to the comments. Looks like I’ll be spending the day here. What better place than among those who loved and respected Tony too!
