Please join me in remembering Tony Snow and his family on his birthday.
Happy Birthday, Tony! We miss you and keep your family in our hearts and prayers.
You are welcome, my Freeper Friends! Tony was simply the BEST!
Heh. It’s not like this every week and I don’t work solidly through dinner once I get home. It gets the work done and most times, I can work a lot fewer hours on Friday as the early part of the week is heavy.
Thank you, Foxy and Surferboy!
I keep Tony’s family in my daily prayers.
You are welcome, Foxy!
God, I miss him. He was the voice of calm when the world seemed to be spiraling out of control. I think of him often.
Thanks for your kind words, FoxFan. I miss BahBah and Carolinamom too.
It’s great to see you and ALL the snowflakes on this thread, sl.
Sniff....still sad. Tony Snow was the greatest!
Thank you, DollyCali!
Yes he was, DCBryan1. Thank you.
Yes, he was the BEST!
Glad you could make it.
I will be offline for much of the weekend, so if I can't get this figured out by tomorrow, I'll have to try next week.
But, thanx for trying to help. Always appreciated.
Thank you, Foxy! :)
Have a great weekend!
I miss Tony Snow.
Prayers for his soul!
Prayers for his loved ones!
Thank you for your prayers, Sun.
I’m not sure how I missed this thread last week. I was thinking about Tony today and did a search to see if anyone had posted something about missing him as well. I still have his emails and still think about the last time I saw him. So full of energy even though there was not much time left. I think he would get a big kick out of all the fuss Sarah is stirring up.
Still in over my head with family stuff [fortunately good stuff], but wanted to take a second to thank you for starting the Tony Snow Birthday Thread. I know that besides being the SnowFlake Thread Mistress, you also shared a June birthday with Tony. And today, June 13, is that day...”Happy birthday!”
So, thank you and happy birthday, saveliberty, on behalf of all SnowFlakes and FReepers.
“Talk about the good dying young, I truly miss Tony Snow. I relied on his commentary and laughed at the ironies he pointed out - he was one of the good guys.”
Ditto. He was always my favorite host on Fox News. This country really needs a lot more people like him to report and discuss the news.
He is greatly missed. Prayers for his family.
Prayers for the repose of his soul, and for his family, reminders that one day they shall all meet again for a meal in the Inn at the end of Time.
It is 9/11 and I just found this thread (I was in the hospital on Tony’s birthday and mostly out of commission this summer). I found it today only because Chris Wallace closed Fox News Sunday and summed up the remembrance of that day with Tony Snow’s eloquent words on that day 10 years ago. It made me cry, and miss Tony, and miss all of you. I hope that you all got to see it. It made me remember just what an amazing human being he really was. One in a billion! We miss you Tony.
I miss Tony. What a great man.
I knew we could count on the Thread-mistress to keep the flame alive. Tony Snow was a terrific guy and his character and honesty should shame those who dwell in Wash., DC today. He was respectful of all, even his opponents, and he was dedicated to the truth. I remember him saying he would not accept the Press Secretary position if he didn't have access to Pres. Bush. Tony didn't want to risk putting out skewed or incorrect info. Tony trained Dana Perino well and she carried on his values and professionalism.
We are knee deep in a real estate transaction so I am going to have to read all the postings [and I will read them all] over time. I should add, I am off to my 50th Dartmouth College reunion in a few days. 50th!!! Where does the time go? However, it is silly for me to complain when Tony was taken from us far too early
This has been a poignant time for the FOXFANVOX family, as well. Trophy bride, of 52 years, lost her mom in May and I lost a Piedmont pilot friend last week [2 years younger than me!] So much for my whining. I am a lot better off than I deserve to be.
And, if my calendar is correct [gave up on my memory years ago] you, saveliberty, have a birthday yourself on 13 June. Misplaced the age......was it 29?
Take care and thanx for posting this memorial thread so we can share the memories of our friend Tony.
God bless Tony Snow and all who gathered here to share their thoughts. I look forward to reading them.
May 29: GK Chesterton
May 30: Joe 6-pack
May 31: Clint Eastwood
June 1: Tony Snow
All men of distinction, talent and good manners.
While these are some awesome birthday brother dudes, personally, I confirm and avouch the fine attributes of May 30th’s feller, Joe 6-pack!
I’m always a day late & dollar short these days, but Happy Belated Birthday wishes for Tony! That so many remember him speaks volumes about the man he was.
I find myself wondering more & more WWTS ( What would Tony say?). He was the calm in any storm and his words, perspective, voice and presence are missed as much today as the day he passed.
Awww...Thank you Sweety!
