I love this story!!!! Karen, I love that you cared enough to take it upon yourself to find these people rather than just turning the camera into 'lost and found' on the cruise ship!!!!!

Awesome press for 2Peas too.

I love that the owners were found in FIVE hours. Just amazing. 2Peas is totally amazing and so are you Karen (and Jen)!!

BTT for 2nd update:

***2nd Update: Sunday 1/27***
The story never aired! The story of the deceased man who loved burger king and the whole funeral procession went through the drive through must have been more important!! (Actual story!!)

I didn't have a chance to call the women who set it all up today to find out if/when it will air. What a crazy day of emotions and nervousness ended in disappointment when the clocked turned 11:30 and it wasn't on!!! I was told it was suppose to be on either the 6pm or 11pm news!

The Burger King funeral is a local news story for me and it's funny to see that it's getting national attention. And I agree that I think your story should be featured on The Today Show.

You're good eggs Karen and Jen!
