Moe mai ra e Willie,
Thank you for your service e koro, a brave man and a brave soldier.
I do not carry the same last name, however my mothers maiden name is Ratahi and I am very much affiliated with the whanau no Ngati awa, Whakatane.
Nga mihi e te whanau,
Kia ora Koro Willie ...You do not know me by name and we have not met face to face but we are connected through bloodlines as My Koro Tane i believe is your brother ....You are so handsome koro and you died at an early age the pain and heartache that my great grand mother Moerangi had to go through would have been unbearable!when i found this site and came across you my heart sank ...love you xxoo
