Melbourne Fijians remember Rev Tuikilakila

from w
Peceli and I drove up to Chadstone (Melbourne) for the Memorial Service for the late Rev Dr Tuikilaikila. Isa we are still in shock over his sudden departure from this world. It was a good service - gorgeous singing, a Tongan preaching and shaking the roof, excellent microphones - take note AML - but not as crowded as it could have been. A nice supper afterwards and the men drank kava sitting on chairs - which is rather different. Are they all getting older perhaps? I enjoyed meeting up with friends and making new friends. Some of the Chadstone folk are going over to Fiji for Tui's funeral and the ceremonies will be full-on in Suva for the next five days.
