  1. Such a tragic end to a young life. My condolences to Finn’s family and friends,
    may he rest in peace.

  2. I worked along side Fin carting hay in December 2017. So sad to hear what has happened.Thoughts are with you and your family.

  3. I’m so sorry for your loss, I lost my son 5 years ago tragically, so I know what you must be going though. My thoughts are with You and your family and his friends.

  4. Times age needs to rethink their approach to writing stories on missing people. Imagine how embarrassing it may have been for him if he saw the earlier story that was written up on him.

    Such a sad thing to happen and wish it apon no one. Close to home for me as I had a mate do the same thing when we were his age.

    Rest in peace Finn your were a good customer ?

    Love to your family.

  5. Testimony to the inadequacy of the Mental Health Services or lack thereof in the Wairarapa. So, so sad.

  6. Breaks my heart when I read about another family having to join the dreaded Club that I belong to – of other parents who are enduring the loss of a child. So sad to read of this loss.

  7. Where does hope end and despair begin for people who are in so much mental turmoil who then take their lives. This is the insidious face of the black dog who bails people into a corner that they feel there is no way out.
    So sad for Finn so devastating for his family and friends and our collective loss as a community

  8. another tragedy, but I feel so sad for his mother and sister Grace here in Carterton… had hoped for a good ending.. RIP Finn…

  9. So sad ? rest easy brother, you were a great rugby player and way to young to go. Condolences to the family a great talent gone to soon.
