"To love is to place others before you and to make their needs your priority. Do it. When you put somebody else at the center of the frame, your entire world changes, and for the better. You begin to find your own place in the world.On Saturday Brit Hume said of Tony Snow, "He taught us how to live ... and he taught us how to die."
"When you’re drawn into the lives of others, you enter their problems, their hopes, their dreams, their families. ...
So resolve to do little things for others. ... The only things that are sure to endure are the artifacts of love. So go out and build as many as you can."

"Count your age by friends not years,Former First Lady Barbara Bush, in describing Tony Snow the day he died, said, "He was loyal to the core ... loyalty is a big thing. I remember his unfaultering loyalty for people he work for and people he knew. He didn't have a mean bone in his body."
Count your life by smiles, not tears."
Sunday at 6:00 p.m. is a repeat of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Rush Limbaugh, and others remembering Tony Snow.
