I heard my friend Marc had fallen victim to Covid-19 early this year on Facebook (I think).
The last thing I remember was he was recovering, but around then, I wasn't paying much attention to the internet, and shortly afterward, by old computer quit.

I had purchased a new laptop, but wasn't ever able to re-establish my Facebook page on it.

I had forgotten Marc until just yesterday, but I began wondering if he was fully recovered or not. And so far, I haven't been able to contact him directly.

Any info on his condition would be gratefully received. For me, even bad news is better than no news. Naturally, I'm hoping the news will be good!
regards,

I don't know him but out of curiosity I did look on Facebook and find several folks by that name. One of them had a profile pic with a banjo that lived in New York; that one has posted on there a lot recently.

Marc has gotten quite a few bridges from me and come to think of it, I haven't heard from him since 2019. His address is in New York. Hope he's okay. Super nice fellow.

I send bridges to Marc often ....actually sent him a couple bridges about 3 days ago. He is fine and well. However tho in our conversations he mentioned that he lost his brother to covid . So sad .

He posted on FB an hour ago. Seems ok. I remember him from the liner notes on a Steve Goodman album,,he kicks off “Somebody Else’s Troubles”.

Marc made a post on Facebook a day or so ago, asking why people on Banjo Hangout think he died or something. I didn't rat on Stanger.

Thanks, Don. 

Marc called this morning and we had a nice conversation. He's fine, folks, and wants you all to know my concern was a false alarm.  We promised each other to stay a little closer in touch with each other in the future.

regards,

Good to hear about Marc, but my condolences to him for David.
David was a fine pianist, if I remember.
Seems I recall Marc and David playing with Tom Paxton in the early 1970's at the old Schaefer Music Festival at the Wolman Rink in Central Park...
