  5. My deepest sympathy to all of you. I met Des through Jim King and Tammy. I am Tammy’s sister from PEI. The night I met Des, he had some luck at Schanks. He told me I was his good luck charm from the east coast. I was really hoping to meet you Karen on my next visit. He was a great man and a very down to earth person. He will be missed by all! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
