Kristine came into my/our lives by chance by being a temporary neighbor but her kindness to me will remain in my memory forever. My then husband and I were temporary residents in America following a job posting on a gold mine, just outside of LV. We found ourselves living next door to Joe and Kristine in LV for a short time in 1988. We had never been to America and having travelled from Australia with our young 3-year-old daughter Bianca, it was all a bit daunting. Joe and Kristine were lovely neighbors and helped us feel at home. Kristine in particular reached out and helped me when I was feeling homesick, expecting a baby and when I had to go into hospital to give birth to our daughter, Bonnie. Without her kindness and help, it would have been very difficult to manage. My husband, Bonnie, her husband, sister, brother-in-law and I were lucky enough to visit Kristine, Joe and Jenny in 2018 to celebrate Bonnie’s 30th birthday. It was a privilege to know her then and her memory will live on in my heart. Although unwell at the time, her beautiful light shone through, even then. May she rest in peace.
