After our trip to the grave Alan took us to the home where Mrs. Hoover lived until she passed away. It is in a very nice upscale part of Perth near the University of
Alan lives in Claremont which is very near this house so his parents were actually within very easy reach for Mrs. Hoover. Mr. and Mrs. Smith must have been inspired by Mrs. Hoover because the younger couple became great friends of any Borneo students studying in Perth. Alan today continues to practise this tradition of helping Malaysian students coming to Perth.
Six letter boxes to show that there are six occupants in this apartment.
The summer sun would have been very pleasant for her and would have reminded her of her tropical days in Sibu.

I would like to acknowledge my thanks to Mr. Alan Smith and Mr.Timothy Liaw (former Divisional Engineer of Sarikei - where be became a Methodist) for bringing me to visit Mrs. Hoover's grave and this home in Perth on a beautiful busy sunlit Saturday morning when they should be spending time doing other very important tasks. Much appreciation....kan sia kan sia....pei yi shu pei yi shu)
