This song is dedicated to the late great Tommy Tedesco and his family, I will never forget the wonderfull fun times we had together, the Sunday dinners and the get togethers for holidays. I learned a lot about family from the Tedesco's and about sticking together and supporting each other. It was once said that Tommy was the most recorded Guitarist in history and I believe it. He had a work ethic second to none and he worked day and night on all types of music. He loved music and always had a smile on his face for friends and loved ones. You were loved by many and missed by millions of music lovers around the world for your contributions to the music you loved. I picked this song because I heard you play it so many times and it reminds me of you being here with all of us. We all miss you. To the Tedesco family, thank you for being my support system and for loving me as I did/do you all. To Carmie; thank you for showing me how to be a strong powerful mother and an elegant woman. To Denny thank you for allowing me to be a part of this project and help you get this film released and distributed. To Desiree and Damon, thanks for the memories. We hope to see you all again really soon. Jim and Diana Missig
