THE LET­TER OF THE WEEK

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

PETER (Cardilini) was a great friend of mine when I was a stupid teenager fol­low­ing around a group of car-mad friends dur­ing the 1980s (“Tributes stream in for truck­ies killed in crash”, Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, Oc­to­ber 12).

He used to drive me and Lizzy ev­ery­where in his mus­tard or­ange HQ with­out one com­plaint.

He showed me how to do en­gine checks, he let me hand him tools while I asked end­less ques­tions about cars, and he paid me to wash his car. We went to the river ev­ery weekend in sum­mer, drove to ev­ery look­out in a twohour ra­dius, watched end­less movies with the gang and he snuck me my first drink. I haven’t seen him for years and that’s to my loss. But I will al­ways re­mem­ber Peter Cardilini, my friend, who never com­plained about an an­noy­ing 14-year-old girl. RIP Pete, I love you.
