I was 9. I remember going to the local cenotaph in my home town's park to see the flowers and tributes, and a large gang of burly looking Hells Angels blokes (there's a meeting house close by) were standing there looking completely solemn and carrying a massive bouquet of roses. I'll never forget that image.
