PETERO Vunidilo  is still trying to come in to terms with the tragic death of his partner, Kathleen Canvan who was killed in a light plane crash in Central Victoria, Australia.

Petero told this newspaper today that it was too soon for her 23-year-old partner to leave him.

He said he would try his best to attend her funeral.

“This is really sad for me, I cannot believe that this has happened everything we planned for is now shattered,” he said.

The 24-year-old Namosi native said Kathleen had just left Fiji last week.

“We were together before she left for Australia, she didn’t want to go and I didn’t want her to go either.”

“I miss her so much.”
