    To David and family,
    Sincere condolences. Not a day went by at David’s beloved model aircraft club where he did not mention Ros regarding something they had done or were going to.
    Most of us had never met her but we sure know she was loved.

    Dearest David & Families
    Ros was a wonderful friend of mine and the McCallum family ever since we came to Castlemaine.
    Our children went to St. Mary’s School together where Ros was in the Library for many years cultivating their knowledge of books.
    We had many dinners, lunches & birthdays together having the best times, laughs & supporting each other always.
    St. Mary’s Parish was a central part of our friendship, bonding us through the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    You were a beautiful friend Ros, and will be remembered with love & hugs.

    Dear David and family,

    On Friday night we were just about to sit down for dinner, when life changed forever.
    Ros was a very special person who we’ve grown to know and love since Georgina, and I joined Teams.
    She will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
    We will be privileged to celebrate her life, and please know that you are able to depend on our ongoing friendship and support.

    Our Condolences to you David, and all the Family, and we are very sorry that we cannot be with you today.
    We hold wonderful happy memories of the times in Woomera in the late 60’s and early 70’s when our group of friends had dinner and card nights together, and also enjoyed picnics/BBQ’s at places such as Whisky Swamp and Lake Hart. On another occasion Ros, Marilyn and I and colleagues from ASCO put on a hilarious performance of the ballet Swan Lake.
    Ian and I are so pleased that we stopped off in Castlemaine in 2023 to visit with you.
    With loving memories,
    Sue and Ian Gregory – Adelaide.
