President Bush, Thousands Others, Attend Snow Funeral

snow_7-17.JPGPresident George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and thousands others attended the funeral for former White House press secretary and Fox News anchor Tony Snow today in Washington, D.C. Snow passed away on Saturday at the age of 53.

“He knew the job of a reporter was vigorous. He understood the profession and always treated it with respect,” said Bush during the service. “We will always remember his wry sense of humor and abundant goodness. We will also remember he was lots of fun.”

Others in attendance included former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card FNC commentator Karl Rove and the person who Snow replaced, Scott McClellan.

This afternoon two more attendees, FNC anchors Brit Hume and Chris Wallace, were interviewed about the service on The Live Desk.

“It was a beautiful service and it really spoke so much to Tony,” said Wallace. “I think the central theme was, how do you make sense of such a good man, such a decent man who lived such a wonderful life, but such a short life.”
