Tony Snow, Former White House Press Secretary and FOX News Anchor, Dies at 53.

This news made me so sad. I always enjoyed watching Tony on Fox News and as Press Secretary. He was an inspiring man who personified integrity, honesty, and politeness. It's sad to lose such a good person any time but his relative youth makes his death tragic. I truly hoped that he would beat the odds and overcome his cancer.

I love this photo of him leaving the White House after resigning as Press Secretary:

This is not a man beaten by cancer. Despite the signs of his illness and chemotherapy, this is a man still believing and fighting. Notice, too, his yellow Live Strong bracelet.

Godspeed, Tony. God bless your family, colleagues, and admirers. We'll miss your courage, integrity, and grace.
