More disappointing news to share. Our hearts goes out to Medalle’s family during this tough time.

Eric Medalle, thank you for all the work you've done for us pokémon fans. It's sad to hear this news, yet good to hear that his daughter made it out alive. Mr. Medalle and his work will not be forgotten.
R.I.P. and may Arceus guide him to a better place.

This is one of those things where I am both sympathetic to the tragedy but also wondering why he went for a Sunday drive through a forest during a windstorm. That windstorm was really nasty on Sunday. I wouldn't be out walking in it never mind driving unless I absolutely had too. It was 90-100 km/h winds up here. So it must have been in the 50-60 mph range down there. =/
