|Let the memory of Ihimaera be with us forever|
"Hi Dad!! I didn't forget about your birthday yesterday xo Happy 80th Birthday to you. I know you are all raging it up there for kegs and auntie Ruby bottles. I'm always thinking of you dad, wishing you were her with me so we can go floundering, fishing all the things we use to do. I love and miss you always dad. Give my love to my Charlie, Lisa and the rest of the whanau who get to celebrate your birthday with you
"Hey Dad, Its been 12 years today!! Not a day goes by where I never stop thinking of you. I just want you to know that I'm great full for all the Love you gave me. I will cherish every moment, memory that we've shared. I have learnt why you did the things you did for me when I was growing up. I'm on a journey learning my whakapapa from Koro Te Ahaus (Tahere) whanau and I'm loving that it's taking me back home to be closer to you and to my ancestors. Next weekend I'm going on a road trip with all the Unties to celebrate Auntie Kaa's 80th. I'm really looking forward to it, hearing all the beautiful and not so beautiful stories of your up bringing. I miss you all so much dad, charlie, liza uncle pat, uncle hunia and now uncle tati."
