HONE TAMATI KAUA WHAANGA From Hone's wife, Antazia, their children, her family, and Hone's family. In our time of challenge and pain, we, the families of Hone Whaanga have been humbled by the out- pouring of love and compassion so generously showered upon us. Hone's workmates, Rescue Teams, Police, all those involved in Hone's retrieval, the Ministers, our sincere thanks to all, including Victim Support, Nga Marae O Turanga, Schools, LDS Church, Relief Society, friends, iwi organisations, the Ormond community, neighbours, Kahungunu Marae, Te Iwi Kainga and Whanau. All gifts of love, in whatever form, food, koha, donations, hugs, prayers, gratefully and humbly accepted in the same spirit of love they were given. Words will never be able to express our gratitude and Aroha to you all. To ensure we don't miss anyone out, please accept this as a personal acknowledge- ment of our thanks. Nga Mihi Aroha Kia Koutou Katoa. "The Lord watch between me and Thee, when we are absent one from another"
