If anything happened to me—anything sinister that took me away from my children and seeing them grow up—I would hope I had a best friend like Kerry-Anne Walker.
The type of best friend who had my back, who fought for justice for me and my children, and who loved me enough to not want my life to be in vain. And that is the best friend that Allison Baden-Clay had.
Allison and Kerry-Anne were best friends for over thirty years. In an Open Letter published in The Courier-Mail (15 July, 2014), Kerry-Anne said:
“I knew her inside and out … Allison was the other half of me; simply the best friend anyone could ever hope to have.
“The many moments we shared as friends and mothers remain with me. We went to school together, travelled together and shared and rejoiced in each other’s beautiful daughters. These are moments that cannot be taken from me, and moments I cannot put a price on. I am blessed to have known her.”
Kerry-Anne Walker was there from day one, keeping the attention away from the children and keeping Allison’s case in the spotlight to ensure she received justice.
