Former Chicago Cubs player and broadcaster Ron Santo was remembered with smiles and happy memories Friday as friends and colleagues praised his unbridled optimism in the face of health problems and the never-ending failures of his beloved team.
It didn't take long for the tears to give way to laughter, and that figured, because smiles were never in short supply when Ron Santo was around.
"He just could inspire other people to play their best, do their best," said Banks, a Hall of Famer who was one of the pallbearers.
"With the adversity that I have been through if it wasn't for all of you, I wouldn't be standing here right now," he told the cheering crowd at Wrigley that day.
