In the posthumous message, Trebeck acknowledged the unprecedented difficulties facing this grateful nation.
“You know, while the United States and the rest of the world are enjoying it now, there are many reasons to be thankful,” Trebeck said in the video.
“More and more people are extending helping hands to do a favor to the neighbors,” he continued, “which is a good thing.”
A spokesman for the show did not immediately respond to inquiries as to when the episode was taped.
“Keep the faith,” Trebeck insisted. “We’m going to go through all of this, because of this we’ll be a better community.”
