  • Ae tautoko to korero Sis our Dad indeed stood tall and proud as the magnificent Kauri, the strength of a pride of lions and an endless and enduring love for his whanau. Dad always looked forward to ANZAC Day, marching with his comrades, the catch-ups and how excited we were when we saw him marching so tall & proud. LOVE YOU DAD xox

  • He stood as tall as a kauri tree he had the strength of a lion and he had a heart full of love for all his children and his most beautiful and precious wife. Thinking of you always dad and missing you more and more as the years roll on and thinking of all the times we had together on ANZAC DAY both happy and sad memories, and the good moments we had at the 28th Maori Battlion Reunions. magical times
