WASHINGTON (AP) -President Bush and his wife, Laura, visited on Monday with the family of the former White House press secretary Tony Snow, who died of colon cancer at age 53.

Snow was survived by his wife, Jill, and their three children. The Bushes went to Snow's home in Alexandria, Va., and hugged family members on the porch before going inside.

The Bushes will attend Snow's funeral Thursday at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Snow was the White House press secretary from May 2006 until last September. He long was a member of Washington's power circles, and a familiar face across the country, as a conservative commentator and an interviewer on TV and radio for Fox News.
