KAMO, Hendrix Tamariki Russell.
30.12.1990 – 27.1.2019
A mighty wave came and took you away, your body never to be found. With broken hearts one year on, we dearly miss you, our only solace is knowing you were doing what you loved. Hendrix you will always be truly missed. Daddy, partner, brother, son, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.
Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished.
(Also remembering the Slope Point and Northern Southland Communities, your kindness will never be forgotten.)
ORCHARD, Shaun Logan.

Stolen by the sea at Slope Point and never returned. Loved son of Raymond (Oz), and Honorine, loved brother of Brandon* and Claudia, totally devoted dad to Brooklyn. One year on we are doing our best to carry on but we miss your hugs and enthusiasm for life and trouble. Your daughter carries your attributes of chatting and making friends and a whirlwind of energy you possessed, it is through her you live on.
Our love for you lasts forever. *Denotes deceased.
