  • Nehe Sadlier (Sonny Sadlier) was my father. Quiet and very much unassuming, dad will always be my mentor and the person that made me what I am today. His treks to the Tolaga Bay Inn were legendary as people would often set their clocks by his military paced schedule.
    Public - Nehe Rihara - Child - 31 May 2017
