Cohen's "newspaper clip"

Michael Cohen Marshall

Born in Dallas, TX on June 7, 2010, the first child of Megan and Brent Marshall, Michael Cohen Marshall came into the world at 7 lbs. 6 oz., with a hearty cry and a congenital heart condition. He was known as The Mighty Cohen in his short little life, for he endured multiple surgeries and procedures. For twelve days, Cohen fought with the heart of a lion, but on June 18, 2010, his little body could not match his fighting spirit. He was delivered into the Kingdom of Heaven at 8:35pm in his parents’ arms. He was loved and adored by his parents, their families and friends every day of his life. Cohen touched thousands of lives with his story. The world came to know him through Megan’s blog and many felt they knew him long before he was even born. Sometimes the smallest feet leave the biggest footprints in this world and Cohen has left a lasting impression on us all; he was truly an amazing little boy. His parents want to thank all of his supporters, doctors, nurses and prayer warriors for their care, concern, support and prayers. Cohen is survived by his parents: Megan & Brent Marshall; Grandparents: ............................... Aunts: ...........................; Uncles:......................; and countless cousins, family and friends. Services will be held Thursday, July 1...............

{yes, these are his sweet feet...taken 6.18.10}


{This sweet picture is in the paper, too. It was taken before he passed, also on 6.18.10}

It's in today's paper.

I've had a hard time saying obituary. I don't think I have said it. I hadn't typed it out until now. I think I've been saying newspaper clip.

Brent's mom wrote it. I took out names and such because of searching purposes.


Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

John 11: 25-26 "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die..."

  10. Such a lovely tribute to such a sweet warrior!

    Isaiah 43:
    "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

    Much love and many prayers...

  27. I don't think I have ever left a comment but I have been a follower long before Cohen was just a twinkle in your eyes. I am not sure why I chose today to finaly write, but the picture of cohen struck a cord with me. He is precious. And now has wings. No more needles, no more monitors, just beautiful wings. You are amazing parents and what an amazing family you have behind you! I am sending this article to my family and we will be donating to the Cohen fund soon. I am gathering money! I am a huge supporter for March of dimes, and this is just what march of dimes is here for....babies like cohen.
    There are no words, thoughts or expressions I can give you. My family has battled a couple sickly babies in our past and all we have to offer is peace for you soon.
    Thinking of your family...prayer prayers

  36. Very nicely done...I wouldn't be able to say the O-word either. No mommy should ever have to talk about, write or have someone else write her child's "O." And especially no new, first-time mother with a week old baby boy. I am so sorry Megan. There are no words for what you are going through now, just as there are no words for the sorrow I feel for you even though I don't even know you.

  39. Beautifully written. Cohen left a footprint in all of us.
    The picture is sweet but it also makes me SO sad because he's not able to be with his mommy and daddy :( God will take good care of him, I'm sure.
    And btw, Cohen did look a lot like you (from what I see on the pic).

  40. That was beautiful and your MIL is right the littlest feet do make the biggest footprint and Cohen has touched so many people's lives. Big hugs sweetie...thinking and continuing to pray for you and you family.

  60. Absolutely brings tears to my eyes, but the Lord is close to you. Such a perfect and beautiful little boy. Cohen is in the arms of Jesus now, and will never deal with heart problems again. He is whole and free to run and play as he was created to do. He may have passed from this earth, but he is still very much alive. You will forever miss him, but one day you will see him again. While I know your heart is broken, I hope that this brings you a small measure of comfort.

  85. Love and hugs to you all. My husband and I have been praying for you and your family since we learned about Cohen's heart condition. What a sweet, sweet boy. I'm so thankful for the time you had together with him.

    I've so appreciated your openness and bravery in the face of everything you've had thrown at you. You maintained hope without being unrealistic, and while I know you're grieving deeply, I also see such a graciousness about how you've handled it all.

    I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with a baby boy (named Ewan) who also has four congenital heart defects; two of them are the same as what Cohen was born with. It's helped us to see your story to know what to expect, to see how we can pray, and to know how vital a support network is. No matter what happens, I'm thankful for every moment we have now with our little boy and that now we can refer to your story as a touch point, even as we live out our own.

    Prayers for you all will continue. And again, thank you for sharing your story.

    Wishing you much love.

    The Lord be with you.

  91. This article is so sweet, and wonderfully written. Cohen touched so many lives in his short time here, and that's such a blessing. I love the two pictures you've included; the one of his tiny feet is just precious. I will continue to pray for you and your family during this time.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Beautifully written and those feet are just too precious. Praying for you friend and thinking of you in this difficult time. xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  93. Cohen's life has touched me beyond words. Cohen was perfect in every way, he was what God made him to be and for me Cohen was a path back to faith and hope.

    We have been trying for over two years to fill our arms with a child. During this journey my faith has slowly crumbled with each failed month. It is never harder to see Christ's path for your life when all you can see is the map you've made. While we don't always agree with or want what the Lord has planned for us in the end it is what we need.

    Cohen was what I needed. His life, your journey and your strength during your sorrow have renewed in me a faith I once had.

    I cannot thank you enough for sharing your son with me.

    Through his "broken" heart, he helped fix mine.

  94. What a beautifully written "article" and what a wonderful way to describe Cohen's life here on earth! He really has made a lasting impact on our lives (me for sure)! I am praying extra hard for you and your family this week!

  95. What a lovely newspaper clip. Dearest Megan, I lost my first baby too. I delivered her at 37 weeks, and she never took a breath in this life. I am SO sorry for your loss. Even having gone through this heartache myself, I know I have no words to say that will comfort. Please know that I'm praying for you, and asking God who is the ultimate comforter, to draw near to you, and heal your hurting heart. Cohen was just beautiful...Heaven is so much sweeter for these little darlings that are there.

    Love, Kathryn

  110. I have also read your blog for months and have prayed for your family. It wasnt until today when I too was moved to tears by Cohen's love letter that I felt the need to write. My heart aches for you. I dont pretend to understand nor can I measure your sadness. But please know that the baby boy who was born with the broken heart is now whole. It is only those left on Earth which now have the broken hearts. The irony-his broken heart is healed and now yours is broken. I pray piece by piece, shard by shard, our prayers and your faith will mend your broken heart. Modern medicine will not fix this kind of broken heart but maybe my prayers will put one tiny piece of your heart back together. You are amazing and I marvel at your strength and grace. May God bless your family during this time.

  111. Megan, I can't imagine what you are feeling right now. Please just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers constantly throughout this time and beyond. That "love note" was so beautifully written, and a wonderful tribute to him. He touched more lives through his story that I think only the Lord knows. What a precious picture of your little man, I know you'll treasure that always. You have a little guardian angel watching over you and Brent from the arms of Jesus. Thinking of you...

    ReplyDelete
  112. What beautiful words about a beautiful boy. He is such an angel. He has touched so many people & so have you & Brent. I'm praying for ya'll during this time & that God will bring peace into your lives. He is in his eternal home now & you will see him again someday. I just can't imagine what ya'll are going though & I am selfish. I wish that he was still down here on earth so you could hold him in your arms, but I know Jesus is rocking him to sleep tonight & he has heavenly angels singing to him.

    Lots of love,

  113. I'm so sorry for your loss. I was born with congenital heart defects, and after 2 heart surgeries I'm still blessedly here. I intend to participate in the silence for Cohen on July 1st at 11:59PM (I think that's when it is). Again- so very sorry. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Thank you for sharing everything with us, I hope you feel His healing touch through this. Tomorrow will be a trying day, but you will make it through, all of you, and enjoy celebrating Cohen's short life here on Earth. He does live on through our Father. Take care and praying for you lots.

  120. It just breaks my heart reading this...I can't read it with dry eyes.

    The newspaper clip was beautifully written and I think that it will speak to people. God is happy to have Cohen home with Him...and his heart is all better. God bless your family.

  121. What a perfect write up for a perfectly beautiful baby boy. The picture of Cohen captures all of his sweetness and perfection. Cherish it, as well as the love he brought to you in his short life. Your heart will always be a little fuller now, as you will be carrying Cohen in it always! I am sending you hugs and love as you and Brent honor your son's life on Thursday. My heart is sharing your loss. God be with you and your families. You will remain in my prayers.

  138. I cant even remember what blog I saw Cohen's story on now. I immediately came over to your blog and have been endlessly reading and looking at precious pics. I have lost a baby (although at 13wks gestation) I still consider it a loss. I prayed for God to get me through the pain and he did. Keep your faith and God will lead you down the right path. I was blessed after with another baby, nothing will replace the loss but new beginnings will comfort you. I wish you and Brent all my best thoughts and prayers.

  144. I just found your blog tonight and as I sit here in tears my heart aches and is broken for you and your family. Your encouraging words on your blog written throughout your pregnancy always rang with a huge sense of peace and hope. I don't know that I could've handled what you went through. The newspaper clip is beautiful and so well written and I hope and pray that one day I will meet you and your beautiful baby Cohen in heaven and we will celebrate his life together with our Lord, Jesus Christ.

  161. My heart is breaking for your family right now and the verses you selected are so beautiful...Me and my bible study group are going through Plan B by Pete Wilson and I think this book (when you are ready)may be just what you need at this time. It has been such an encouragement to me and the other girls in the study and he talks about situations very similar to this where God took such pain and used it it amazing ways to touch other lives...I will be praying for you and your family and hope somehow you just feel Jesus with you each and every day and every moment as you go through this...love, Amber

  176. You don't know me but I found your blog through a friend and tears are welling up in my eyes after reading your story and watching that beautiful slideshow of his birth - oh my goodness - how beautiful. What an angel. I can't stop crying. I can't imagine how hard it has been, and your words and faith are so inspiring. We've been through some trials with our son Jet who was born with Spina Bifida - but I am daily made aware of others who have been through so much more. I am truly touched by your blog and your family and sweet Cohen. You are amazing for sharing this and I am praying for you and your family's continued renewal and strength and peace. God bless you and keep you. Much love - Joanna

  197. I know there are no words to say that are right. I know this because my wife and I walked in your shoes a very short time ago. We said goodbye to our daughter Rebecca Sue 3 weeks ago today. I just came across your blog today and in just a couple of minutes realized we had too much in common. It only takes 1 picture of your Cohen in that bed and the mention of PD and I know your story all too well. Your faith in God will not answer those tough questions but will provide you the strength you need. We will pray for your healing as we heal. Our children will be playing in heaven together.

  199. I am so sorry for all you have been through. I just read Cohen's story today. He was a beautiful baby boy...and I know his story touched so many lives. I know my heart is touched.

    His short life was very meaningful...

    God's ways are higher than ours, and it is hard to understand why this has happened. We just have to trust in Him.

    May our God give you comfort as only He can give. May friends and family show their love by just being there for you. I know prayers will continue to go up on your behalf. I am praying for you.

    Cling tightly to your faith ... He is faithful...It's in our weakness and sorrows that His strength and comfort is made known.

    May you feel His presence today and in the days, weeks, and months to come.

    Our family has grieved the loss of two infant boys and our six yr. old Anna. (Our grandchildren) My heart truly aches for you today.


    Linda
