We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes after the passing of Fred (Dad) on April 9, 2020. Mum and Dad were laid to rest at the Mokihinui Cemetery on April 14, with only Raina and Wayne in attendance.

Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we were unable to give Dad the funeral service he deserved, and an opportunity for friends and family to gather and reminisce about not only Dads amazing life, but the life shared with Mum.

A Memorial Service / unveiling for Mum and Dad will be held at the Mokihinui Cemetery on Saturday November 14, 2020 at 1pm. This will be an opportunity for everyone to join us to share stories and songs to celebrate Mum and Dads lives.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
