    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You wife/ mum was a fantastic person and an amazing role model to others. You must be so sad to lose her.
    You may not remember me. but I certainly remember you all well, from Dundonald School in Wimbledon where I was teaching. Not only do I remember the children as my fellow kiwis within the school, but I have special memories of the performance of Maori song/ haka your group performed a the schools International day. It made me proud to be a New Zealander.
    My thoughts are with you at this sad time. Kia Kaha, Joanne Gallacher
