I'm not to sure a bout this, or whether I heard it right, on the Maori News (TE KARERE)last night but I did hear the name Rarere whom has just passed away in or from Mahia.

My whanau and I would like to give our condolences to the whanau, our grandmother was Te Kumeroa Rarere and no doubt is her whanau too.

na Winiata whanau o Winiata Pa, Taihape

I want to express my aroha ki a koutou katoa o te whanau Rarere,

I knew some of your relations in Australia (Scotty and Kahu) who live in Brisbane now. I also know your whanaunga out in Glen Innes, he married a Rarotongan lady and I was good friends with one of their daughters, Korima.

Aroha nui ki a koutou katoa i tenei wa o te pouritanga.
