RIP John Emler 25 March 1963-3 June 2019
« on: June 03, 2019, 11:33:23 am »
Per his sister, John Emler, known here and in chat by his username @jemler , died this morning.

He and I often needled each other, but I will miss him, goofy puns and all.  He was part of this fandom for a very long time.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Oh DR,  I am so sad to hear this. I had worried that Jemler had not been in chat for the last three weeks.
Please send all our best regards to his family.  He will be missed here.

So, so sorry. Such a brave man who had so many battles to fight.

Rest in peace...
my friend
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

He was a fan of mead, so a bottle of that will join the Macallan for ambush and Scott on the chat room wet bar for memorial toasts.

So very sad.  But he is out of pain.

OMG!! Is this Jemler? I'm so very sorry & condolences to you all who have known him longer than I, and to his family. I'm so very sad to hear that, but yes, no more pain & I'm sure he will follow us from above.

I know just where to get some really good mead - next time I get a bottle I'll drink to him.

So very sorry to hear that "Jemler" lost his battle with his health issues. :(

I am so sorry to hear this. I knew he was in hospital but I kept hoping for improvement. He will be greatly missed. I hope he and Scott are raising a few, and there will be no more pain or sickness. RIP my friend.

So sorry to hear this, though glad he is now free from any pain.

He was a man to admire as he faced his challenges bravely and with one of the most outstanding senses of humour I have ever known.

No pun will be the same without him. 

RIP Jemler.

Thank you for letting us know, DR, but I am so sorry to hear this news. John was great fun in chat. We are poorer for his loss. Farewell Jemler, we'll miss your courage and your humor and groan-inducing puns. You were incredibly brave and uncomplaining in bearing the burden of your many health troubles.
Also loads her Trebuchet and sends a 21 fish salute flying in Jemler's honor.
