Not sure if we are connected or not but will continue the work for my father who is now passed. I lay this poppy to commerate your service and sacrafice. Lest we forget. Taupaki family ♡

I never got to see grandad either but we visit him an Ganny Wai at Tirohia. You would be amazed at how many moko's you have and how big the family has grown. We will Remember Papa Always Ka pine koe kore Ki te pine o te aroha KI te pine e kore nei e waikura e
