  • I was raised in the knowledge that I was treasured by my grandfather. Your spirit and love surrounded me as I was growing up despite your passing some 27 years prior to my birth. Your brothers and sisters stepped in on your behalf and ensured that I never lacked the love of my Papa. I belonged to them as much as they belonged to me and look back fondly on the many times that I made them proud. They are all gone now, reunited with their brother. Every year that I take the time to I remember you, I will take the time to remember them and the contribution they were to me. Arohanui...Tania
