I've either been contacted from The Beyond, or Des is still with us on this side of the Rainbow Bridge!!!

Turns out his email account was hacked and the email I received was bogus.

Des Lives!!!



Ladies and gentlemen, I am very sad to pass along the news that our Thread Brother, DivePac88, lost his long fight with illness on November 28, 2011.

He was a special person, always full of good humor and wit. I never met him in person, but I know I am not the only one around these parts who called him friend.

Fair winds, Des!

Des was a good man and one of the lights of this forum. Always full of cheer and willing to help out a noob (he made my avatar and sig). I would have liked to have met him in person.

May you rest in peace, mate.

This is indeed a very sad day....

As I learned a lot from DivePac88's posts, and he was very helpful with us NOOB's.

Also he was a very funny Guy sometimes, and could make someone choke on there coffee.

Be at peace Des.

Marc.

I was looking forward to following his AAR and getting to know him better. I will miss that opportunity and it saddens me. Definitely a day of ill tidings.

It is very sad to hear, though I was half expecting the news. I was in a PBEM with him which he was finding increasingly difficult to work on given his deterioration.

I found him a generous and charming opponent.

Very sad news.  Divepac was one of those gents from whom was "never heard a discouraging word."  Just a nice guy.  Blessings to his friends and family and all who will miss him.

The grammer and sentence structure might be a little less than perfect, but the thought is utterly flawless.

Rest in Peace DivePac88.

I too was in a PBEM with Des. A true gentleman who fought long and hard against a devastating disease. Go, be at peace, my friend

Not much to say. It is truly a sad day.

Every morning I walk my dog along the river near my house and say thank you for another day of life.

RIP
