Old Man Crow has left the stage

Posted: January 19, 2022 by Mo Crow in It's Crow Time

Rod took his leave ever so gently and peacefully at 4:44am
the nurse called just before 3am to let me know his condition had changed
I was there by his side as his breathing slowed down until he was gone
he’s free

  1. dearest Mo – sending you so much love and friendship – candle is lit, and holding you both in my heart

  2. Marti says:

    He is playing on the stage called stardust where he simply shines…

    Oh dear Mo,

    We send you our love, our sorrow…what you hold onto now is that even in his passing, you were by his side, together, always…

    The Irish have words that I want to share with you:

    Irish words on the loss of a loved one:

    When we lose someone, we love, it seems that time stands still. What moves through us is a silence; a quiet sadness. A longing for one more day… one more word… one more touch. We may not understand why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember, not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. We will see you again, someday, in a place where there is no parting. A place where there are no words that mean good-bye.”

    With deepest love,

    Marti and Rich

    Dearest Mo, I am one of your legion of anonymous fans, a fellow fiber artist. I have followed your blog for years, never commenting, but delighting in your stitching and his music, and your loving artistic lives together. Tonight here in Los Angeles, I am copiously weeping. For your loss, the world’s loss, the lost future plans. But grateful that he is now free of the pain. I shared your joy. I now share your sorrow.

He will. Ever so gently. xoxo

    Dear Mo,

    It’s my very first time to visit and I was deeply moved by the passing of your dear Rod. What a blessing he must have been to have him in your life. I saw Hazel Monte’s tribute to you both and felt myself pulled to make the journey to you. After purusing your site I feel such a strong connection to you and Rod. It felt as if my heart and mind was opening up to the both of you. I will be back often. And thank you for sharing you life’s journey with us. Powerful! And yes, I agree, Love is the answer.
