I miss my husband...I miss him every waking moment; every moment of sleep I'm dreaming of him. But at Christmas time, the memories and the missing are overwhelming! He's always with me and around me and in my heart. I know that. Yet...I can't feel his arms around me, even though they are. I can't see his lopsided smile, even though I'm sure he's smiling at me as I write this. I can't hear his voice as he tells me he loves me, even though I know my soul hears his whisper in my ear.
Back in the day, in his long and varied career, Ron did a bit of back-up singing for the likes of Hank Williams, Sr. and Willie Nelson. And he loved Elvis. If you can close your eyes and imagine as you listen to these Christmas songs, Ron's voice is a combination of Elvis and Willie Nelson. The last song, "How Great Thou Art", was...is my beloved's favorite song.
