RORE, Huriwaka Snr

Tangi kore nōu rā ki runga o Moumoukai Titiro iho rā ki Rākaipaaka e Te hora o te moana E papaki nei Whitiki rā ki Nūhaka e.
Pūkatokato ana te ngākau e te tau Kōrengarenga ana te puna roimata ki aku rekereke. Me pehea e mauru ai te āroha mōu e whakangaeke nei i taku poho. Kia au to moe e taku tau, tiakina tā tāua mokopuna a Te Ngahuru.

With heavy and shattered hearts our whānau would like to acknowledge the passing of our cherished Husband to TeAo, Dad to Lisa (Penrith, AUS), Luana & Mark (Brisbane, AUS), Niwa & Te Orihau (Ruatoki), Kim (Nuhaka), Trae & Marisa (Sydney, AUS), Norse & Tam (Wairoa), Kura (Nuhaka), Rae & Ofa (Wairoa).
Koro to all 30 of his mokos and 10 moko tuarua.
Beloved Son, Brother and Uncle to many.

Our taonga is now laying at Tanenuiarangi Marae, Nuhaka. At 11am on Sunday 28th February, we will lay him to rest eternally, at Te Mimi o te Hiki Urupa.

We will miss you Dad, for the rest of our lives, until we see you again.
