  • To my Koro I wish many things in my life and one is to have met you, i have heard many great stories shared by your eldest daughter Lorraine Raumati and your sons eldest Bill Paekau and youngest child Allan Paekau who is my father. All i know is that without you being who you were and commited to our country i wouldn't be who i am today, you taught my older sibling to be greater then themselves and to fight the darkest demands and to remain the same. Im sure they will always appriciate the imput you endoulged on them. I will always love you Koro xo From your youngest grandchild and great-grandaughter
