WARNING! SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 25!
This video all started with an icon I saw in someone's LiveJournal, believe it or not. It was simply the image of Hughes waving with the caption "See you in Heaven someday". I set this as a challenge to myself whether I can put this together in about a couple hours or so. This video actually took a little more than 3 hours to complete altogether. Found the song, gathered the footage, and made this a nice short tribute to a wonderful character from the series, Maes Hughes.
The song is from a major Broadway star from several years ago, Patti LuPone. I heard this song on a TV program a long time ago during a tribute to friends and family who have long since passed on. I think this song was very fitting for Hughes -- any father who is as enthusiastic about his firstborn daughter as Hughes was DESERVES to go to Heaven.
This video is a major spoiler for FMA, especially episode 25. It all makes more sense if you've seen that episode already. Enjoy.
Update: the direct download is a slightly different version of the video, cleaned up and with one scene change during the video.
