RIP To Those who Perished in the Rozelle Blast


I was shocked and saddened to hear of the disastrous building fire that afflicted the close community of Rozelle last week. To hear that three beautiful lives were lost was devastating for all involved, but when we learned that Bianka O'Brien had perished in this tragedy it hit home for so many within our local area.

Bianka operated a popular Ramsgate hair salon within this electorate of Barton and was acquainted with myself and my wife Dorette over several years as our hairdresser. Bianka was a beautiful girl who was always kind and positive. She was a loving wife and mother who, along with her precious son Jude, was taken from her loved ones far too soon.

As the Federal Member for Barton, I extend my deepest condolences to John O'Brien on the loss of his beautiful wife and son and the entire O'Brien and Noble families following this heartbreaking loss. I pray that the whole community receives answers and comfort following this disaster.

Rest in Peace.
