Please join me and Daniel’s family in sending prayers and thoughts of love to Daniel Jacques Marcus on January 27, 2010, the anniversary day of his passing in 1998.

Daniel is very missed by his loved ones.  Please join us all in remembering him on this day!


Daniel Jacques Marcus


Daniel will be “Forever 12,” on February 6th 2010,  But for us Daniel will be 25 in chronological years.   He will have been gone 12 years.  The same number of years he was with us on earth.  Some of you are well aware of this time gone by and the ongoing longing that accompanies it.

We see, hear and feel him very often…on the soccer or baseball fields sometimes wearing his blue and gold sweatshirt….sitting next to Steve in the loft beside his computer….beside Emily on Tuesday nights leading her child loss support group….throwing his pillow and screaming when the Yankees lost a game in the World Series…cracking the neighbor’s window with his baseball…building his K’Nex Roller Coaster… singing Jimmy Cliff ”I can see clearly” …skiing down those double black diamonds….clicking the keyboard of his computer….running or clomping down the stairs….helping the fallen baby bird on the patio…..visiting him at camp in New Hampshire, watching him with Becca on the deck in our Berkshires house.,. hiking in Yosemite, his birthday parties with magicians, sledding, sleepovers and Mexican restaurant…website song ”I believe I can fly” plus a million more memories. We know you have your own Daniel recollections.

We are not asking for donations to a fund.  We are not sending up balloons with messages to him this year nor celebrating his 25thwith cupcakes nor beer.

We do invite you to share a thought or remembrance, OR check-out the photo album, OR send us/him a brief e-mail . (Daniel’s e-mail address) OR simply light a candle, OR look up at the winter night sky and wave hello to him on Orion, OR whatever attempts to mend that hole in your heart.  And don’t forget to see him again on his website

This note is being sent to all our friends and family.  We believe that Daniel will receive the abundance of love and energy.  He’ll smile, be silly, and thank you for your cool thoughts while he hangs out with his many friends on Feb. 6th.  And we know he’s watching over Becca.,.always.
