With a desolate heart I share the news that Kimberley Kitching has passed away.

Kimberley suffered a heart problem Thursday evening in Melbourne and passed soon after.

Her passing is an immense loss to Labor and the nation.

As well as her innumerable accolades she has been a wonderful friend to myself, my wife Chloe and our family.

To know Kimberley was to be touched not just by her serene intellect but her incredible warmth and vivacity.

As a Labor Senator she was relentlessly energetic and conscientious recently resulting in international recognition for her human rights work.

Our hearts go out to her husband Andrew, her family and loved ones.

In the words of Shakespeare -

“Your cause of sorrow
Must not be measured by (her) worth, for then
It hath no end.”
