PAKI, Thomas (TBox). 07.02.1941- 14.04.2018.
After a year of reflection and memories, Maggi, Tamati and Sarah, Zacson, Tahlia and Kayden along with Teresa would like to thank everyone for their love, support and sympathy given to us during Thomas’s illness and when he passed away.
Thank you for the flowers, food, cards and many messages, and a huge thank you to all those who travelled from Australia and various parts of New Zealand to be with us to share in the celebration of Thomas’s life.
Our special thanks to Dr Jordan Baker, in whom Thomas had complete trust, Southland Hospital along with the District Nurses for their care and support of Thomas, and Hospice Southland for making his last days so comfortable, also to Stephanie, we loved those early morning muffins and Andrea Jerry for her lovely service. Thomas would have loved your singing. Those who gave eulogies, thanks, I am sure many of us would have had a good laugh when we heard of a new way to remove a motor from a car.
To Annette, Toni, Teresa and my sisters you gave me unconditional support and love for which I will be forever grateful.
Thomas was a much-loved husband, father, father in law, Koko, brother, brother in law and uncle who was a huge part of our lives and is missed so very much.
Please accept this as our personal acknowledgement of our deepest gratitude.
Thomas’s headstone unveiling will be held at the Riverton Cemetery on Saturday 20 April 2019 at 2:30pm.
Precious memories keep you near,
As time upholds the first sad year.
No need for words except to say,
You’re loved and missed in every way.
– From your loving family.
