We can not imagine the heart break and sadness that you are going through, it is so unfair, you should have had many more years filled with love, laughter and making many more great memories.
Our hearts are heavy with the loss of Rodney. All our love and thoughts are with you all.
Lots of love Tony, Dani, Greer, Caleb & Myah ????

To our dear whanau,

We send this message with so much aroha for you all.

So many fond memories we have shared with you and Rodney over the years, we will cherish forever.

From your first real fur baby Toby and then Lucy and then the boys. The early morning Christmas visits to wake you both up just to name a few.

A brave and gentle man you were Rodney, the world will not be the same without you.

To Bronwyn and the kids, you are never far from our minds and are just down the road with ready arms and a shoulder when ever you need us. Sending our love on a strong westerly wind xoxoxox
