My tears haven’t stopped for you, your family, your babies, your band of brothers and the heartbroken songsters who you have inspired for so many years. One of my favourite tours was an acoustic tour I did with Jay Smith and Mike Le Lievre. We called it the “Well, There You Go Right There Tour.. Part 2″  We shared a lot of dreams and bad jokes in that tiny car. Hearing you and your sweet sister Chelle sing together all these years was such a treat. I feel privileged to have witnessed your evolving talent over the years and have shared many sunsets of song with you and the gang  in that time. I must say I held a lot of hope for a Rock Ranger reunion.  We lost another Cape Breton Legend yesterday.  My heart breaks for everyone who knew and loved you. You were the real deal, Bud.

Long may you run.
