Canada is forever grateful. I looked up to the gord above and said hey man, thanks. I saw another article where he had written “introduce you” on his hand and considered getting it tattooed as to remind his friends that he may not remember them.

I wasn’t aware of the “in Sarnia” connection. These phrases from his soul, that he shared with us as lyrics, must have constantly floated in his head. So glad he shared(even though I struggle to figure a lot of them out!). I lived in Northern Ontario. Went out in James bay hunting as a girl. Hearing him sing breaks my heart but also gladdens it. Gord is as Canadian as it gets. He will be missed greatly.
