I've since thought of songs that I should have included like A Mother's Love's a Blessing for my Irish born Mom. At least your loved ones will know.
You mention Ďthe soundtrack of your lifeí and mine could be filled 100% with GL songs.
Iíve found a Lightfoot track for most of the significant situations in my long life.

From meeting the girl who became my wife and a difficult courtship, to the tragic death of my son, Gordís words have upheld me.
There are other singer/songwriters whose music moves me, but not as consistently as Gordon Lightfoot.
