Hi it’s Jayne Ann Bugda from the Producer’s Pod. 
I am remembering a dear friend- John “Skip” Ward who passed away this week.  Skip worked at WBRE-WYOU for a number of years and was a good friend and mentor to many.  Skip was a gentle soul with a very kind heart.  He was a wonderful photographer and took great pride in his work. Skip will be missed by many- My prayers to his family-
