  • Hi I'd like to ask Hayden Sargent if he remembers my Aunt who is Carol Levy. At least I think that was her name. In the early 1970's she came to Brisbane from Western Australia to see the family she had here...my mother who is her sister and their mother. I am not sure if she did see her own mother but she saw mine and they had some kind of fall out. I was only ten then. What I do know is she told Hayden Sargent that she did not have a family in Brisbane and wanted to get married and 4BC gave my Aunt Carol a wedding...she was on the front page of the Sunday Mail. I think Carol might have had another surname ...it could have been Owens or something like that. What I would like to say is I understand why my Aunt said she did not have any family. She did..but they were a lousy selfish bunch of individuals who give no thought to anyone else bar themselves. I am ashamed of my family and I would like to find my Aunt because I am estranged from my mother and my father for the above reasons and the truth is I really don't have anybody either. If Hayden Sargent would mind asking Carol to come forward she will remember me..I am Denise's daugher Wendy and I am fed up being so alone just like she was.

    • I listened to Hyden for the early 70's but listening now he doesn't sound a bit like Hyden.
