A Tribute to Bud Whelan

BudWhelan1.jpgKaren met Bud Whelan through her work. He was touched by stories we aired, starting with the coverage in Kenya. He was kind and generous and he would always offer Karen story suggestions or feedback. Many will remember Bud as Santa Claus - a role he played in charlottetown for many years. Visitation is at Hennessey funeral home on Friday, June 22nd. No funeral by request but a memorial will be held at a later date.

Due to copyrights we could not include the music. Here's a link to a Youtube version of Irving Berlin's song - Count Your Blessings
