  31. Dave Petrusma says:

    One of the most loved and genuine characters of Castlemaine taken way too soon. So many funny conversations over near 30 years, many usually at the Cri or at 3.30 a.m. near the Pit with Cheryl wanting a lift home and always having a colorful way with words about what might be going on in Ryland Ct. She did get that lift on occasion. Sorry I couldn’t be there, but I caught most of the live stream. Sincere condolences to Lachlan, Kirsty, family and friends and yes Lachlan how could I forget the car fire, she smiled and winked at me in later years if the conversation ever came up.
    Dave Petrusma

  32. Phil & Deb Duus says:
