RIP Shirley

Shirley Flavell nee Hunt
20/09/1936 - 8/10/2010

Kia hora te marino,
Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana,
Kia tere te karohirohi i mua tonu i o koutou huarahi.

May the calm be widespread,
May the sea be as the smooth surface of greenstone,
And may the rays of sunshine forever dance along your pathway.

My Auntie has died and is farewelled in Dunedin today. I don't have any words other than I love her and miss her.

Arohanui ki a koe, ki ou whanau whānui hoki.

Although she is lost from your sight, she will remain in the hearts and remembrances of those she loved and who loved her.

That beautiful whakatauki was the one I read at my mother's service and I agree with the sentiments 100%.

Moe mai te hākui, haere atu rā
