Debra and Wendy and families,
Sorry to hear of your mum's passing. We had many happy memories as neighbours over the years. Velma was a good friend and will be sadly missed.

We were so sad to hear about Velma's passing. Kem and I have many happy memories of Velma, she was always great fun, and her laugh will be remembered by many. Kem and I had the privilege to travel with mum and Velma to the UK, and what fun we had! Mum and Velma sharing a bed at Alivia's in London was hilarious for all, their laughs from the bedroom were riotous, as was sneaking around Deborah's house for the surprise visit. May your lovely memories of your precious mum warm your hearts forever.
Much love Kem and Raewyne Bary

Sadly another Rongotea identity passes away. Remembered by us as the lady who always had a smile on her face and offered a friendly greeting. RIP.
