My Special Friend - Eric White - Jacinda Beals

jacinda_eric.jpg Jacinda Beals and Eric White Eric wrote the words to “My Special Friend” a song in memory of his best friend Burton Winters. Jacinda has just recorded his song. Burton  Winters_02.jpgIt was a year ago today that the body of 14 year Burton Winters was found on the ice 11 kilometers from his home in Makkovik… and there’s a big event tonight in Happy Valley Goose Bay to remember him. Everyone is invited to Husky Park at 6 o’clock to show support for the friends and family of Burton. People are asked to bring balloons, candles or lanterns. Some of those in attendance will also perform the songs they wrote in remembrance of the 14 year old. Perhaps one of the most heartfelt pieces written over the last year, comes from one of Burton’s closest friends. We take you back now to an item that originally aired back in November on Labrador Morning. ….. My Special Friend.
