Dear Tony, Tina, Mel and families
It was a pleasure to have your wonderful Mum as a good friend for many years and it was comforting knowing she was able to remain at her home right through her brave journey and with no pain a blessing. We had some
Good moments in recent weeks at her place and I was pleased to locate some sweetbread she (spoke about her fondness of them)though they are probably untouched and you will enjoy them hopefully and think of Joan’s love. She had shared her hope of a another to Australia though it wasn’t to be. Blessings, courage and love to you all .
To All of Joan’s Whanau, Our thoughts are with you all at this very sad time, Joan was an amazing lady, loved by all. She will be very Sadly missed. Arohanui Marie & Smithy Kiore and Whanau xx
