A few years ago, my brother Jim and I visited a little local restaurant for lunch and cervezas in Loreto, a Baja peninsula town in Mexico.
Since we were the only customers, the staff adjusted their internet radio to play Bruce Springsteen`s music.
We quickly corrected our server that we were Canadian, not American, and asked them to play Gordon Lightfoot.
The lilt of Lightfoot`s anthems accompanied our meal.
My brother died suddenly two weeks later.
Rest in peace, Jim.
Rest in peace, Gord.
