Emmanuel Hollingsworth died on January 23rd 2014. He had stage 4 lung cancer. His wife passed away years ago and they had no children. His body lies in the morgue waiting to get buried. Emmanuel was in the Army. He is a verteran. Emmanuel also worked for the Department of transportation in Trenton, NJ. While going over blue print plans, Emmanuel said there was a fault somewhere. Before locking the plans in the drawer, they gave everyone on Emmanuel's squadron a chance to find the fault. Emmanuel labored over the plans day and night. One night exhausted, Emmanuel went around to the local tavern to have a beer. When he went to the bathroom a friend put something in his drink to pep him up. It destroyed Emmanuel's life. Emmanuel went on to find the fault in the plans. He received a scolarship to become an engineer. Very soon after that , Emmanuel had to go to Ancora Mental Hospital. Acid had been put in his drink. Emmanuel never worked for the department of transportation after that. He was able to hold down odd jobs and was able to maintain himself. He picked blueberries, scraped old paint off of buildings, painted and moved furnitrue. He continued to work hard but his life was ruined. Emmanuel was not the type of man to have 5 dollars and you ask for 5 that he would give you 2. If you needed it, He would give you his all. He died with no insurance, no wife and no children to help him. We are trying to get money together to give him a decent burial. All help will be deeply appreciated. Thank you so much and may God bless each and everyone of you.
