  • My earliest memories of you, was when you and Aunty and your hundreds of kids turned up to visit us in Mangakino. Okay, not 100's but a heck of a lot.

    My more recent recollection, was when my sisters and I would visit you when you were in Opotiki. We would visit your brother Te Hue first, and then go the 500m up the road to see you. Man, you were full of cheek! You had us laughing before we even got to the door.

    Both you and Uncle Te Hue had brilliant wits. Sharp as. Although, neither of you would say so. Too stubborn. You use to chuck off about Uncle, and he about you. It never diminished the love we felt for you both. Both of you would always say that you missed our Mum immensely. That she was always your favourite sister.

    You too, had a brilliant smile, a cheeky word for anyone who called round, and, you loved the simple life.

    Gone from us, Uncle. And, never forgotten.
