Thanks for that Deep....he was one of the best...and proudly Canadian...as are we are so proud of him. I'll never forget the way he handled 9/11 and an unforgettable children's forum the following weekend to discuss what had happened.

God Bless...

There's a tribute special on ABC tonight, I believe it's 8 PM ET

"The family says they would be honored if donations were made to four charities that Jennings worked for and believed in so deeply: Coalition for the Homeless, Women in Need, Teach for America and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Lung Cancer Fund "

Horrible news. At least he's not suffering now though.

That special was excellent, I enjoyed the personal information about Peter

Especially how he loved his kids so much and always called his wife "darling"

Former ABC News anchorman Peter Jennings became a member of the Order of Canada days before dying, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

The Canadian-born journalist, who died at home in New York on Sunday, won the honor upon the recommendation of an advisory council to Governor General Adrienne Clarkson, who represents Canada's head of state, Queen Elizabeth.

His joining formally took place when he sent a letter agreeing to accept the award, shortly before his death. The actual insignia will be presented later to a family member at a ceremony at the governor general's residence, Rideau Hall.

The award recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.

Jennings, who died of lung cancer at age 67, took out U.S. citizenship in 2003, but retained his Canadian citizenship
