Gord Downie has been the voice of my life for as long as I remember. His words are the stories that play in my mind. His music is the soundtrack that plays through my memories and colours every aspect of my life. If there was ever any secret narrator linking together the milestones and meaningful moments of my life, it was Gord.
My heart hurts right now. A lot. I feel like I lost a friend. A close friend. One who was always there for me and always able to make the worst days a little bit better.
There’s so much more I want to say but, for once, I’m lost for words.
You’re missed, Gord. Already. And you always will be. Thanks for everything.
Love and peace.
