  • Rest In Peace and Love Uncle Mei
    Public - Deanna - Other relative - 24 April 2020
  • To My Great Uncle Mei Parekura Ngatai As the days go by and we grow old not one single day goes by that we do not think of the sacrifices you made for us as a country , family and friend to man. ANZAC Day is a day i remember you and all the soldier's who fought for our country. Uncle your legacy and many qualities you possessed were passed down through the generations as a reminder to all that we are all brave and courageous just like you were when you went to war and into the heat of battle.Love you and cherish everyday that goes by. They shall not grow old At the going down of the sun And in the morning We will remember Lest We Forget
    Public - Roman Cody - Other Relative - 17 April 2015
