Se aus kainaga ne Kauata Marafono MBE,
We join with so many others who knew Kauata in offering our deepest sympathy on his passing. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing you can celebrate the end of a very long and productive life.
The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the sorrow they leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on his loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that his indeed was a life well-lived.
May you find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved him.
Gagaja la alalumakia aus atakoa,
Rotuma South Australia.

"A wonderful life is waiting for you. A life full of happiness, success and potential! You truly deserve the best. Happy Birthday!”
A day of celebrations with families and friends was held at Hope Valley with families travelling from as far as Suva & Lautoka. A day enjoyed by all.
To those who have just arrived-a very warm welcome and to those who are departing for home-a safe and blessed journey back ma se aus kainaga tutu atakoa aus noa’ia ma fai’eksea ‘e leum la manea ma hai’ofaga ma Ariki.
