Your mother has done well to raise you and outlive you.


That's a crazy sort of double backhanded compliment Cam.

But compliments are few and far between so thanks

Thanks dynastar. It was a great funeral as far as funerals go. It is amazing what you find out about your mother at funerals. Evidently as a young girl during the depression my mother went to 5 primary schools, they were poor and the Father took work where he could. At some stage the family home burnt to they ground and they lost everything they owned and my mother was accused of being an arsonist. Latter on their nanny burned down another house and my mother was cleared of the blame for the first one. They all lived in a tin shed for 2 years, mother father and seven children She had six months secondary school only and left to milk the cows to keep the family solvent.

She had 5 children 13 grandchildren and 27 grandchildren present today. She was well off. Held a drivers licence. Hardly had a days sickness in her life. And took a bow 5 days after they discovered she had Leukemia. She was 92.

We buried Marge today on the Hill at Ohaupo next to her husband on a beautiful sunny winters day in a spot that looks out over the farmland to Mount Pirongia. In that direction her family once farmed and behind her was the family farm where she and my father farmed for over forty years.

God I can go on at times cant I ?

A little poem My wife read at Dads service a year or so back


When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little–but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me–but let me go.

For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me–But Let me Go!
