  • We still miss you koro. ANZAC is always an emotional time and its hard to think that someone who went through so much could be so kind, loving, caring and funny. So blessed to have had you in our lives and grateful for all the sacrifices you and your comrades made for all of us. Love you always koro! Never ever to be forgotten...
