Money Changes People and not always for the Better

Its almost a year that we lost our youngest daughter who passed away having given birth to a very healthy baby girl. Almost immediately her “partner” who had claimed single dole whilst my daughter worked ( they lived in Melbourne for a while) as she has worked since leaving school started asking my family for relevant paper so he could quickly access her Superannuation and any insurance money . Behind our backs “his” accountant approached various Funeral Directors for Death Certificate (very honourable I think not) “he” had received over $5000 from a GoFundMe  fundraiser  (my family totally disagreed with this concept and have to wonder what the money was used for) My family have bent over backwards helping out BUT as a reward ALL my family are barred from seeing our very precious Grandaughter. If our daughter had survived this horrible tragedy we know for a fact she and her newborn would never be away from her mother/grandmother and her direct family and I feel sure it would be a far better environment than the one our Grandaughter is now in

The statement below was part of an email “he” sent although I feel his accountant may have written it

the author of the next statement is KOLIN KHUEN-KRYK

I would be more than happy, in fact honored, to pay for Emma’s funeral if my application for the Superannuation is approved. However, as you would understand I would like to receive the invoice made out to myself for the payment of the funeral expenses that you would like me to pay. In addition to the invoice; the bank details will be required for any payment.  from KKK

Our daughters payout was around $250,000 (Super was approved)  plus GoFundMe of more than $5000 and all of her personal stuff including her car/phone etc

NEVER at any time has “he” offered to contribute any finance towards funeral cost     but probably bought a state of the art X-Box  plus it must have been costly  shaving a full blown Rasta hair cut ? I feel this man  has NO remorse and has probably forgotten our daughter all together.I can only hope our Grandaughter sees some of the money our daughter left and gets to go to the best education that her mums money inherited

We are NOT interested in financial legacy,however it would be nice if Funeral costs were paid for out of that legacy

Community Radio here and there

A few years back I ventured into Hervey Bay and by chance found a niche in FraserCoast community Radio that lasted for around 3/4 years. After spending last 2 years having great adventures around the UK I have returned to my Australian “birth” place Perth. I have recently joined local community radio here in Joondalup WA and taken through the process of announcing that I have thoroughly loved (my late brother Jim actually worked for the BBC UK as a TV and Radio announcer circa 50/60 s) In doing so it brought back great memories (with a few hiccups) of my time at FraserCoast.I met a lovely man whom I trained with and have remained friends ever since.Memories of our lovely trainer Pat who was always stood behind us with a massive ( just kidding Pat) stick,prodding  me if I got it wrong .Majority of the announcers ( and office staff) were really great.After training I was given my own show (Rock n Roll 60s on) Feedback was mainly good and playing time (3 hrs) went so quickly.I covered other shows with different genres and one in particular I had so much fun doing was playing music from around the world and why on earth my good friend Jutta allowed me to do her show is a mystery ! Pronunciations went haywire announcing songs and artistes name from around this wonderful Globe.Outside broadcasts were great fun I even got accused of stealing the Outside Broadcast van ( I didn,t ) Sadly I no longer live in Hervey Bay but I do listen in occasionally and see lots of newcomers and a revitalized studio.I made lots of pals there (ok and the odd one or two who thought they owned the station!) Good luck to you all at FraserCoast…Paul my ole mucker? keep smiling .New horizons are hopefully about to begin here in Joondalup ( the Studio is smack in the centre of a University) Heres to the future……..

Just a small selection of Radio Pals there are lots more ,especially the Country music players and it was great fun teasing each other (Bob,Carol,Andrew,Lorraine) ladies who assisted with “adverts”  Libby and Kay who I believe now ( and quite rightly) have their own shows,the wonderful Mon,Carol and others.Thank you all for my my time mostly fun
