  • To my Great Grand Father Hoera Purukutu, wish we knew a lot more about you and what kind of person you must've been, we just buried your daughter last year, she must be happy that she finally gets to hold you and tell you stories about her family. I wanted to thank you for the sacrifices you made for our freedom. We love you Pāpā and will always remember you❤️ From your great grand children xxx "lest we forget"
