WILKIE,
Wi Morehu (Jim).
E hika ma, kei te tangi a Hikurangi Maunga mo tetahi o ana tipu kua wehe atu ki te po. Tangihia mo to matau pourewa, te amorangi e whakakotahi i to matau whanau i nga wa katoa.  Ko ia to matau hononga ki a ratau ma o te ao pohatu.  Kei te tangi, kei te heke nga roimata mo to matau koroua, pakeke, Matua, hoa Rangatira, papa, tuakana, tungane, taokete.  Haere, haere, haere atu ra ki runga te ara whanui o te Rangi, e haere to haere, kaua mo te hokimai kia matau. Kua moe te ha o to matau Papa.  Kua piki ia ki te taha o ona matua tipuna e wheturangitia e te Kaihanga.  Ka mahue ko tatau nga kanohi ora e mau pouri, e mau mamae aroha mona.  Moe mai e te Papa, moe mai i to moe roa.
The Wilkie whanau are sad to announce the passing of Jim, age 87, on the 18th of August 2021 at Wellington hospital.  Jim was the beloved husband and treasured friend and companion of Elizabeth (Beth) for 65 years and the much-loved father and father-in-law of Warren and Diane and Charles and Heather. Jim is the son of the late Charles (Charlie) and Te Oti (Jo Boot) (nee Haua) Wilkie of Ruatoria. Brother and brother in-law of Winiata (dec); Taupiri (dec); Pita Pungarehu (Peter) and Mereana Wharepa (Gran) (dec); Benjamin and Eva (dec) and Josie and Eruera Reedy and a much-treasured cousin, uncle and Papa to our whanau and friends.
A very special man who enriched the lives of those he touched and will be forever in our hearts.
