Aue te aroha te mamae i ahau e.
Our hearts are so sad to hear from Lisa McNab that her amazing mum passed away this afternoon. She has asked us to let all our people know that the whanau are keeping whaea Waireti at home this evening where they will hold services at 7pm.
Waireti will be taken to a whanau funeral director in Whangarei later tonight and will return to Te Paatu marae at 6am tomorrow morning.

FROM WAATEA NEWS: "As the northern tide reached its lowest ebb yesterday morning, Ngareta Jones died peacefully at her home at Hihi on the shore of the Mangonui Harbour after a long battle with cancer.
"The 56-year-old was one of the founders of Te Kawariki, the movement that brought out a new generation of northern youth in the early 1980s to protest the crown’s failure to honour the Treaty of Waitangi.
Kia Ora everybody with kids at Mangonui Primary School or who wants to be involved. Our Maori community consultation is on Tuesday 8th of September 2015 at 6.00pm at the kura. Please come along as the more numbers we have the easier it is to make changes. Refreshments provided. (Josh Baker)
