  • I remember Uncle Madsen well. We lived for a time with him and our nan when I was young, at their house in Porirua.
    He was a quiet man, and very nice. My grandfather (Stanley Wineera) was Uncle Madsens older brother.
    Ka nui matou aroha mo nga mea I mahia koe. Moe tonu kei te wahi tapu o tatou Matua I Te Rangi…
