All my whanau came to my Aunty Ma's tangi. I feel so sad now. Aunty died of cancer. My tuahine is taking it quite hard, as are Aunty Ma's children. There were plenty of kaihana there. I think they all missed me because each one gave me a big hug. On the burial day we all said our farewells to Aunty Ma. After returning from the urupa, we all sat down for the kai hakari before leaving to drive home to Tahaaroa.
