Congrats Dad

Yesterday we went to Government House in Auckland for Dad’s investiture ceremony.

He was awarded the ONZM in the New Years Honours List.

My brother flew in from Dubai, and close friends and family were in attendance. Sadly Mum couldn’t be there but she knew Dad had been honoured when she was told the weekend before she died. A special exception was made to tell her.

I’m very proud of my Dad and all the volunteer work he has done for the community over the year. 

After the ceremony everyone who was given awards then had a photo opportunity with the Governor-General.
