SHE was the love of his life,
but now Brit James Hodder is
mourning the loss of his partner,
James, 30, will be among hun-
dreds of people to farewell the
28-year-old nurse – who bravely
ran to help others in the London
terror attack – on Monday.
Kirsty’s parents Tina and Ken,
brother Chris and James have
invited friends and family of
Kirsty to celebrate her life at a
service at the Loxton Swimming
Pool at 1.30pm.
After the service, Kirsty will
be laid to rest at the Loxton Lawn
Speaking to a UK newspaper
recently, James spoke about the
pair’s love affair and the horror
moment he learned of Kirsty’s
“Kirsty was eating in a restau-
rant with friends next to where
the van went into the wall,” he
told the Gloucester Echo.
“People were running the other
way but before her friends could
stop her, she ran up the stairway
towards it all. Nobody was sur-
prised because that’s the kind of
person she was.
“As well as being friendly
and outgoing, she was brave and
selfless. There are no answers to
some of the questions people ask,
very proud of her and her actions
James and Kirsty met when
the pair ended up in the same
share house around four years
“She arrived with a suitcase
and a love of life,” said James.
He said Kirsty had a connec-
tion to the country through her
mother who had moved from the
UK when she was young.
“I noticed her personality
straight away,” said James.
“She just loved life and
it wasn’t long before we were
together. It all happened pretty
“We loved going on long
walks together and having din-
ner by the pond. We were very
James said Kirsty was
extremely passionate about her
“She loved nursing, it was her
life,” he said.
“She was very talented and
loved taking care of people.
When she first arrived in this
country she struggled to get her
Australian qualifications trans-
ferred for registration, but she
“She had a job in post anaes-
thetic care and enjoyed talking to
people as they woke up. She was
very well respected and had even
James said the pair regu-
larly visited his parents in
Gloucestershire and in 2014
Kirsty’s parents travelled to the
UK for a week-long road trip
around the Cotswolds.
“She loved coming to
Cheltenham to see my mum and
dad,” he said.
“It was nice to get away from
London and enjoy some peace
and quiet together.
“She also loved history and
the buildings in Cheltenham are
steeped in Regency architecture.
“Her mum loves the idea of
the English countryside and the
Cotswolds fit in perfectly with
what she imagines it to be like.”
James said when he heard
about the terrorist attack he
feared the worst.
“I knew Kirsty was in the area
so I was ringing her phone non-
stop,” he said.
“After about half an hour I got
through and one of her friends
and a policeman relayed to me
what had happened and told me
to wait in the flat.
“It was the most harrowing
experience of my life.
“My whole life has been
ripped from under me and I don’t
know what I am going to do.”
James has set up a crowd fund-
ing account and will donate the
raised money to charity in honour
of Kirsty’s life.
Kirsty’s family will choose the
charity at a later date.
An incredible $31,483 has
already been raised.
To donate to the cause visit
his partner Kirsty
Boden as a brave,
selfless person who
simply loved life.
