:'( James M. Emmerling, I hope you are flying free now :'(

Dear OS Friends,

Our James M. Emmerling passed away in a car accident on January 7, 2016, at around 1:30 pm.  He was driving alone when he went off the road.  No one else was injured. 

  I hope and pray Margaret and her children are okay.   :'(

Rest in peace, be at peace, JME.

Is there any confirmation that this is our James Emmerling? Would he have been in Ohio now?

Nerd cred, I keep hoping this is a mistake.  He was living in Ohio as far as I knew from his blog, but maybe someone who was close to him knows better.

I cannot confirm this is our James. What I can confirm is that he has logged on to the site in the past month using an IP which was in Ohio.

Oh Man, the last email communication I had with Emmerling was on Jan 3, 1:09pm... please, please let this not be our Sweet Baby James.

Lorianne was his last log on before or after Jan 7th?

Wow. This was the OS blogger who went to live with Margaret Feike? I hope not! If there is an online obituary, that might offer some telling details. That's how I found out about my high school sweetheart–someone read about his passing in their local news, emailed me and I googled his obit.

The city is the same as Margarets. The age & name match.  I cannot find an obit, and this was 10 days ago.

Hi clayball, thanks for giving us the heads up to this terrible possibility.

I found this...

photo shows the van in the middle of a field, it looks like?

Oh dear.... hate to think it's James.

I searched the Circleville Herald and the Columbus Dispatch for obits and got nothing.

Comment by greenheron on January 17, 2016 at 6:02pm

Crap. I searched and all I got was the horrible Circleville picture that Anna did. No obit in the Circleville paper though. 

Maybe he was sent to his family....I can't remember where they lived...was it Maine? Maybe his family is keeping it unpublicized. How awful and sad.
