    EVERYONE'S NEIGHBOUR: A state's tears for the girl next door

    May 05, 2012

    WHO was Allison Baden-Clay? She was the wall print of Van Gogh's Sunflowers that hangs over her living room.

    She was the framed pictures of family and friends cluttering her bookshelf. She was the mother by a bedside lamp softly singing Away in a Manger to send her three daughters off to sleep.

    She was the sum total of two deeply loving parents, the kind of people thoughtful enough to bring lunch and supplies to a team of emergency workers searching for their missing daughter.

    She was your neighbour two doors down; the mum on tuckshop the first Tuesday of every month; the mum going a little over-the-top for her daughter's birthday party; your best friend who listens more than she talks, gives tender insights that nail exactly how you're feeling.

    She was the girl dressed up on a ballet stage, aged 11; a gentle and flickering flame in a strange big world full of wonder and tragedy.

    And she was the 43-year-old woman who bottled up her thoughts, never wanting to worry her family and friends; always the one being leaned on, refusing to lean on anybody else.

    On Valentine's Day this year, a text message landed in Allison's phone. It was from her best friend, Kerry-Anne Walker. It read: "A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others."

    Allison Baden-Clay and best friend Kerry-Anne Walker​


    Mrs Walker reflected on her best friend's many qualities.

    "Allison's story has in fact touched and saddened the entire local community and that same sadness spread to millions of people across the country and even overseas," she said at the time.

    "Unlike others, Allison never assumed self-importance and as a result, she was so important to us all. She never sought to influence. Nor did she seek the company of those considered influential.

    "Al's was a simple message of love and sacrifice.
