Well done to helpers af­ter fire

Central and North Burnett Times - - OPINION -

I WOULD like to con­grat­u­late the community of Mun­dub­bera for once again show­ing what a gen­er­ous community we live in. The gen­eros­ity shown to the Hansen fam­ily has been won­der­ful, but not un­be­liev­able as it is not the first time this has hap­pened.

Thirty-seven years ago, Ray and I not only lost all our pos­ses­sions in a car­a­van fire 10 months af­ter our mar­riage, but Ray­was badly burnt and spent a month in hospi­tal with sec­ond and third-de­gree burns.

Many of the older res­i­dents who helped us have now passed on, but I had the priv­i­lege of nurs­ing them in their fi­nal years and never once for­got what they did for us.

Not only have Kevin and Jenny Hansen (Adam’s par­ents) lost a house and in­come, they see the re­mains of the house ev­ery day and are so grate­ful their fam­ily were saved. Denise Hold­way
