Another forumite created a thread about a member that hasn't been around in awhile. Got me thinking about DivePac88.
His real name was Des and he was a good man, with a good wit, an artistic bent and a kind word for others. He was one of my PBEM partners and I enjoyed chatting with him about the game and life in general.
His son was in the New Zealand Army and his father was very proud of his son's accomplishments, like every father should be. His wife was an artisan baker. Des teased us from afar with some pictures of her scrumptious pastries and cakes.
Des created my avatar and my signature picture back in the day, for the asking.
I called him my friend and I miss him.
Des died about two years ago. I was privileged to know him and glad that he shared his uniqueness with us all.
Cheers to you, Des. We miss ya', you saucy Kiwi!
I often remember Des... RIP
I also remember when we thought that he first died but he wasn't... I was so glad that it wasn't true... but the damn illness finally took him...
