  • Tena koe Uncle, I only meet you once and that was at Te Koura Marae. It was a pleasure and a honour to meet you I wish I had more time to sit with you and listen to your stories. But most of all it was just meeting you, a legend. The korero about you will never die and will forever be strong. Your moko R Henare.
