    Sweet beautiful Aunty. You reminded me of Nanny Honey. so loving. You were always there at the marae, quietly chuckling away at the kitchen bantering, not having anything bad to say about others, let alone participating in the banter. My love and thoughts go out to the whanau, wishing to be there to share the tears. You would be sadly missed sweet aunty. Arohanui Julie Koria and whanau no Te Tairawhiti
