  1. Michael seemed a fantastical figure to me as a small child. And the home of Mary and Michael so exotic – rich with cooking smells, beautiful music and richness.

    Sending much love to you all, a huge loss. Victoria

  3. Michael leaves to me very many happy memories of making music over the years. He was such fun, and so perceptive – to his love of music he also joined a delighted sense of the theatre of everyday life, so that making music was never dull.

    Its been a great privilege to have known him.

    A wonderfully erudite intelligent man of many talents and creativity. I loved listening to Michael’s insightful views on anything and everything.

  5. Sincere condolences to the family.

    I greatly appreciated Michael’s interest and support during my student days in Ballarat in the 90s, playing music and golf together and fishing in his dam in Mt Clear – such incredibly large and obliging trout…

    Michael and Mary’s house was full of culture and intellect and humour.

  6. Fond memories of Michael and his love for music. Also of times spent on the Rasmussen property with the family and swimming in the dam. Deepest sympathies to Mary, Amanda, Adam and Tamzin (and Jeremy).
