Dear Editor,

I am trying to locate a lady — Benasta Jimmy who we brought to Sydney Australia in January 1992 for our daughter’s wedding.

She previously worked in the Hotel Rossi in town and my husband Alan and myself, had met her on two previous occasions when we visited your Island.

My daughter Dianne visited and met Benasta and they formed a friendship so that is the reason we invited her to stay with us and attend the wedding.

My daughter, her family, my younger daughter and family and myself are coming to Vila on a cruise in February 2018 “Voyager of The Seas” is the ship and will only be in port 1 day.

We were hoping that maybe, and I know it is a BIG maybe, we could be reunited with Benasta with your assistance to see her for the day if that was possible.

The first time we visited was about 1985 I think and Alan and I had our photo taken and in the newspaper as the first “Duty Free” customers.

I would appreciate your help in locating Benasta if at all possible please.

Thank you,

Joy Tourle
