Day 333 Michael in the local paper

Three years ago, a young man was senselessly stabbed to death on the train as it pulled in to Box Hill station. His name was Darren and he had just started a music course at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts. He was reading sheet music and completely minding his own business when this unfortunate, drugged crazed, mentally ill young man killed him. Darren was a very good friend of my son's and of course my son was deeply affected by the horrific tragedy. This Sunday Michael has organized the launch of a CD that Darren had been working on at the time of his death - that's what this article is all about.If you click on the second page you will eventually see an enlarged version

  1. Pam, your son is a good man. I remember that tragic incident, and didn't know anyone associated with it. Very sad.

  2. Yes, thank you Tania, Michael is lovely. He was devastated by this tragedy but has tried hard to help and support Darren's mother and family in various ways.
