We'll get to see him again. Here's a couple of short videos that you, and others, might like. The first is his burial site. He rests in a small town called Erin, Ontario, not far from Guelph, in southern Ontario.
This second video is a short goodbye from another well known Canadian, Rex Murphy. It was taped the day after Tom passed away.
Since they like to have a holiday we celebrate one day before us, is it being held on Dec 24th? The followed by "Boxing Day" on the 26th?

This song was written in a muggy Cleveland hotel room when Lightfoot was on tour in the US in the mid 1960s.
He said he was missing home and his wife. It became a minor Christmas hit in the late 1960s. I don't know where or when this particular version was recorded, but it looks like a university crowd, and they don't look happy! It was probably a commercial recording.
The lamp is burnin' low upon my table top The snow is softly falling The air is still in the silence of my room I hear your voice softly calling
Canadian style? I don't really know. 21 years ago we quit any fo of t.v. and don't listen to radio , especially commercial radio. Christmas is about one thing and that is the birth of Christ , so we honour the advent season and Christmas. I love the season, because of the gift of the season . Merry Christmas, folks. God Bless
