Marc Dana Lane


My good friend, Marc transitioned on Thursday, July 14th at 9:29 PM...Marc was the devoted husband to my friend, Lori and the father to 7 children (one, Mary who transitioned after 10 hours of life),and the grandfather to 9. Marc was an adventurer of life, one of the most intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure to meet, one of the most caring people with the sense of humor that is both sarcastic and funny! I have been friends with Marc for more than 50 years...meeting him in grammar school and maintaining a friendship throughout. He and his wife Lori have opened up their home to me to live in several times when I was going through a rough patch...they have opened up their hearts to me always. My heart now bares another hole that somehow I must mend...there was no time to prepare...and little time to even say good-bye...I am so glad I traveled to his home several weeks ago so I could actually see him and talk briefly with him. I had the honor to be at his side along with his family on Thursday. It was a peaceful passing...I have stayed with the family for several days as they try to move past the numbness...I will travel back when they celebrate his life...there was a gathering just for family and a few friends on Saturday the 16th. I will forever hear him say..."HELLO TOOTS" with his wide smile...whenever I walk into his home...he will be dearly missed by me...
BE WELL.

Patty, If I thought it would help, I'd send you a big ol' roll of duct tape. Your heart is so full of holes, it must feel like it's leaking. I say that lightly but do not in any way diminish your grief. You are a brave lady with a passion for loving til the very end. IT is a gift you bring to the lives of others.

I'm so very sorry for this additional loss. One day in the future I know your heart will be mended back together and will rival a stained glass window in Cathedral. Broken pieces put back together and stronger for healing.

Blessings to you. Sleep well. Gather strength. Seek peace.
