Daniel Tunui Waretini
Ka pū te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi! Ahakoa kāore tāua kua tūtaki e ko, e ora tonu ana te mauri o tōu reo, tōu wairua anō hoki tōu mana ki rō i a mātou ō mokopuna!
E pānui ana au ki wēnei kōrero pā ana ki ōu whāinga i tutuki ai hei hoia.
Harikoa taku ngākau ki te mōhio atu ko wai koe, ā, ki te mōhio hoki i ōu tūranga i te ao marama!
A tōnā wā ka tūtaki tāua e ko.
Nei te mihi aroha nui rawa!
Nā Hemi (tōu mokopuna na Kuru)

I a koe e noho ana ki too wahi okioki ka tuu whakahihi koe i too uri. Ko to aroha, to wairua hoki e whakamana i a tatou. Ko Sgt Kuru Tupu Julian Waretini no te 34 Auck North Batallion to tama. Na o mokopuna ka ora tonu ai korua. E noho tonu atu ki to moenga roa. Nei ra te aroha atu ki a korua.
Na te whanau Waretini

Moe mai, moe mai e pa. 30 years this year since we lost Dad. He missed so much of his family growing. A proud soldier and I am proud to be the son of a soldier. Korea, Malaya and Borneo if you venture to Papakura RSA on ANZAC day there's still bound to be someone that knows him.
