CHASE, Rangitane (Moon).
My family and I would like to thank most sincerely our whanau, friends and neighbours.
A special thank you to Auntie Betty, Uncle Dan and whanau, Auntie Sue and whanau, Auntie Rose and Aroha, Val, Bruce and Roy, Jilly and Ngaro, Ua and Missy, for giving my family support, guidance, strength and aroha until I returned from Sydney.
To Bishop Wainohu and Reverend Bill Tuhiwai thank you for your prayers, love and support at our home, the Marae and the beautiful service at the chapel with Uncle Charlie Solomon, Kingi, Ata and Royalene for their input that made it such a memorable occasion.
Thank you to our speakers, the organist, and the wonderful choir which held everyone’s attention and to all those who attended Dad’s funeral service.
To the Pae Pae and song birds, thank you for being there for us.
To the cooks and the many people who assisted in some small way at home and the Marae a big thank you.
Also a special thank you to Charlotte for being there for us from the time we left home until we returned.
To Dad’s Karaoke friends thank you for the use of your equipment used for the funeral service and we know he would have enjoyed having you all there with us something he enjoyed to the end.
To Mane, thank you for the things you did for Dad that he had discussed with you.
For the kohas, monetary and food, floral tributes and cards thank you very much which was greatly appreciated.
As many addresses are unknown, please accept this as a personal acknowledgement.
May the Lords blessings be with you all.

Heni and whanau.
