    E te Rangatira Maika, haere, haere, haere. Piki atu ki te arai poutama oki oki ai ki o tūpuna, ki Te Horo ma ki ngā Hawaiki katoa. Pouri ana ngā iwi o Te Wai Pounamu i tou wehenga, engari te harikoa mō ngā taonga tuku iho ki ngā Marae maha i whānui e to mātauranga Pounamu. Moe mai, moe mai i to moengaroa. He tohu tino aroha hōki tēnei ki a koe Ngaire me te whānau pani, Meihana katoa kua noho moke moke nei. Heart felt condolences Russell, Ruiha (na Hinekino), Wiremu, Katarina and Anaru Caldwell and the Gourlay whānau no Maketu.
