CockRobin aka Marc Drayer Passed away on 2/18/19

Postby Vanaladiel » Thu Feb 14, 2019 5:34 pm

A word for all his friends here on TORC. Marc is in the intensive care unit of St.Francis Hospital. His friend Brad Johnson has let us know on Facebook. He is getting messages of best wishes for Marc too them as he gets them. If anyone would like to send him an Ecard here is the address for St. Francis Hospital http://www.kansashealthsys.com/patient- ... to-patient
send the card to the patients name Marc Drayer

I know he has diabetes but do not know if that is his health emergency or something else. Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts!

Update on CR

Postby IrisBrandybuck » Sat Feb 16, 2019 9:02 pm

[color=#0000BF]Thank you, Vana. I came in for the express purpose of posting this.

I have an UPDATE. Marc is suffering from several infections and is not responding to the antibiotics. His kidneys are failing. He is sedated as doctors try to get things under control. I know he and his family would appreciate all the prayers anyone can give. To be completely honest...it doesn't look good at all. :( :cry2:

Some days are grumpier than others...

For Calma :rose:
For Cock-Robin :rose:
For Toby :rose:

May we never forget them. :rose:

I haven't been able to get on TORC for a while, but I knew of CR's passing. Iris posted it on FC.

Farewell CR. We will miss you.

I just heard . . . via email from a very dear TORC friend.

There are just no words . . . Marc / Cock Robin was a wonderful writer and a sweet, thoughtful, gentle man. We exchanged Christmas cards (both paper and those exquisitely beautiful e-cards he could always find) for many, many years.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and all his friends. May they find peace and comfort, and may Marc now be Sweatin' to the Oldies in the sun-drenched fields of the Lord.

Sail gently into the West my dear friend, you will be missed so very much . . .

Amen. I’ve had a lot of fun writing with CR. Its hard to believe he is gone and I won’t be able to collaborate on any more prodjects and prancing pony posts, or receive his constructive criticism on my work.

His troubles here are over, and I pray he is in close fellowship with the One who he now knows better than I ever could this side of eternity. My prayers will be going toward his loved ones, as they grieve. We will be too.

I left a message on FB but I wanted to come here.

Marc was a gentle soul and through his own life struggle always had a kind word for everyone.

Fly with the eagles you loved so much Robin.

And sail gently into the West to the side of the Lord whom you kept faith with always. :rose:
Never forgetting those who have passed into the West :rose:

It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through

No wonder clouds are thick and dark
that leads to doors of dimming light;
no wonder stars have fled from skies
where I am swathed in darkest night.
No wonder I am filled with dread
that something painful, harsh, and grim
has come this way...but Lord! Not him!
Not him who sent me gentle thoughts
in cards that brought both word and song,
in greetings that wiped tears from eyes...
now here I weep...and long...and long.
Indeed the courts of heaven greet
each soul who passes in with cheer,
but we are left upon this earth,
to wish our friends were living here.
Know well my heart joins many more
who feel the stabs of aching grief,
but in my heart, I know he lives,
and such a life!...though here, was brief.
Enjoy! Enjoy! Unending bliss,
my brave CockRobin, winging bright,
for now such wonders fill your heart
that give you true unending flight.

For though we grieve,
it shall be but for a season...
for a season...
and then we shall know
oh, yes, then we shall truly know.
Remembering Marc,
With gratitude,
Parm/Paul

I am glad to have known such an excellent fellow-pilgrim.
Those who are here, though, are also people I consider with
much affection and appreciation.

The shadow of a bird
passes over us
to fly to realms
where flight
is as walking,
where songs
are a conversation,
where humbled
are raised to glory.
Fly, CockRobin, fly!
