Rest in love Talita

To Peter, Karl and Hans,
Our deepest sympathies are with you at this time. From our earliest memories of being in NZ and settling into New Plymouth Talita and Peter, you've been a huge rock for our family. Talita was a best friend to mum. She was a connection to the homeland but together they were able to create a new home for us here. We are truly grateful for all the love and support you and your family have provided for us Peter. Talita was a beautiful woman with an infectious laugh and was blessing to all that got to know her. We know that what was once deeply loved, we can never lose and so Talita shall remain a part of us and may her memory live on in us too.

Talita, you were a very special lady dedicated to your lovely family. You were immensely proud of Karl and Hans and always spoke about them when we had a catch up. We had regular Sunday evening dinners when we were all newly married with no money when you and Peter still lived in Dunedin. We have been very lucky to have caught up with you over the past few years, either in New Plymouth or here in Dunedin. Nunia has been a godsend over the past few years and we know that she will miss you terribly. To Peter, Karl and Hans, Talita's legacy will be her strength and love for you all. She is now resting peacefully after a long battle.

With much love to you all,
Coen and Jan, and family
