"LOOK at the picture of Thalia … and our dog, Benji. Just enjoying the simple things in life. Does it remind you of someone?" asked Tony Hakin as he referred to the photo of his daughter, Thalia, hand outstretched upon the family dog with her younger sister in tow. The image beamed across the screens of Melbourne's Royal Exhibition building this week. It has been one year since the Hakin family was rocked by the Bourke Street tragedy, when the 10-year-old Beth Rivkah student was tragically killed in the car rampage on January 20, 2017.
