I seem to have misunderstood you. If I gave the impression that I thought he was not worthy of forgiveness then I am in the wrong. Snape repented. If he could have forgiven himself it would have been better, I'm sure Lily forgave him in the end. Repentance can be a bitter thing and Snape certainly learned that the hard way. He is like the Prodigal Son in many ways.
