Much love for the grand uncle who died so young, stories my mother tells us about you still brings tears to her eyes, Her last memories of you on your horse saying goodbye to her and her crying because she wanted to go with you. I know she will be thinking of her beautiful uncle Rau tomorrow as she watches the ANZAC march. You will never be forgotten such a brave young man always in our hearts.
