This music video is dedicated to Ron Santo

Earlier today, I made this comment:

"On a side note, here at the Mississippi River on Iowa side of the Quad-Cities, it bagan to snow this afternoon very lightly. It will be our first snow of the season . Personally, I love the snow. The snow is falling at a very quiet and peaceful manner. I want to think this is connected as if Ron is showering us with holiday snow. Well if it is Ron up above giving us his love with a snow shower, then I thank you Ron. I dedicate this snow shower to Ron Santo. Here’s to you Old #10, this Bud’s for you."

After I made that comment, I went out for a car ride and the first song that I heard on the radio was Christmas Canon by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.  I couldn't help but tear up listening to the song driving through the snow right as dusk started to settle in.  I went to the Dwyer and Michaels friday fest at a local tavern and I was the first guest to win the name drawing.  I went up, claimed my prize and before I turned to go sit down, I asked Dwyer if I could make a quick statement over the microphone.  He said sure, paused the music, and I made a toast to the audience.  I said rest in peace Ron Santo, you are the greatest man, this one's for you.  We had a moment of silence and everybody in the tavern had a drink in Ronnie's honor.

To me the lyrics of this piece is perfect for our relationship with Ron and the relationship he had with us.  Not only that, but the JDRF fundraiser that Ron represented ever since its inception and the donation's we have all made in his honor today and for many days/weeks/months/years to come.  Tonight the people positively affected by JDRF program will pray their lives will show this dream Ron Santo had, each child still knows, they are waiting, they have not forgotten the great Ron Santo.  Here's the music video I would like to share before we all fall asleep tonight. 

 

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas

The joy that he brings
The joy that he brings
The joy that he brings
The joy that he brings

This night
We pray
Our lives
Will show

This dream
He had
Each child
Still knows

We are waiting
We have not forgotten

On this night
On this night
On this very Christmas night
