Sydney White flowers

(Picture) White flower: Katrina Dawson, 38 year old mother of three and esteemed barrister.  A rising legal star cut down by jealousy and rage; Katrina scored a perfect 100 in her higher school certificate in 1995.

Today two beautiful White people passed into eternity.  They epitomised the Australian archetypical ideal: traveled, down to earth and laconic.

(picture) Hero: Tori Johnson, the 34 year old manager who selflessly sacrificed.  He was popular and well liked by staff, described by one former boss as “a selfless person, a person who always put other people before himself”.

They had the brightest of futures to come and families who loved them. One studied at Washington State, and ran  the flagship Lindt store in Martin Place, Sydney.

The other had studied at USYD and UNSW, and taught young law students how to develop arguments in open court.

They will both be remembered by all with the highest regard and their loss touches all Australians.
