Have loved hearing of your stories growing up - and although I didn’t get to know you like a lot of the fam - I have so much respect for you. Thank you for your bravery and willingness to do what you needed to for the betterment of others, and the betterment of your future whanau.
Kia whakatōmuri te haere whakamua
I will never forget you taking me to my very first dawn parade at the Auckland Museum. I was so in awe of you Papa, and proud to be there with you. Thank you for teaching us the importance of Anzac Day and for fighting for our freedom. Love you and miss you forever. Your mokopuna, Gina xxx
