Politico’s Mike Allen reports from Tony Snow’s memorial service, which was held this morning:
Former White House press secretary Tony Snow was remembered Thursday for “love given and love received,” at what amounted to a state funeral, complete with remarks from President Bush.
Snow was a Fox radio and television celebrity — one of America’s most popular conservatives — before serving as President Bush’s spokesman as he publicly and cheerfully battled the stubborn, cruel colon cancer that took his life Saturday at age 53.
The Very Rev. David M. O’Connell, president of the Catholic University of America, said in the funeral homily that Snow “did not need a long life for us to measure.”
