HUNGAHUNGA Chiefy Paikea
Nani and whanau would like to thank everyone for the heartfelt aroha during our sad loss of my husband, our Dad, Koko, brother and uncle. Thanks for the support, aroha and koha.
To Hamuera Marae, Paepae Kaumatua, Kaikaranaga and Reverend MacDonald for accepting and sending my darling Chiefy off with great honour.
To Denis and Whetu for the korero on the Paepae at our home.
Special acknowledgement to our Mangukaha whanau for the mahi and aroha in sending “Brother Chiefy” off with great mana and respect, YFY Bros and sisters, Black Power forever. Brothers like no others.
To my Mum (Hana) and Dad (Jerry), you’s are my rock, thank you for being there for me and your grandchildren.
To everyone, please accept our gratitude and thanks.
Ehara taku toa I te toa takitahi, engari taku toa he toa takitini
Mine is not the strength of one alone, it is the strength of many.
E kore to koutou aroha nui e warewaretia e matou
Your heartfelt love and kindness will never be forgotten.
