Murray Stewart (Cheeky):
Murray's family would like to sincerely thank all his wonderful friends, mates, old shearing and farming buddies and neighbours, especially our friends from the Te Mata Club for all your hard work and support at such a difficult time. To Chris Leuthart and PGG Wrightson, and to Garth at Te Awamutu Funeral Services - many thanks also. A very extra special thank you goes out to Dr Dominique Hite and our wonderful District Nurses, Leoni and Viki for your expert care and compassion shown to Murray during his time of illness. St John Ambulance staff both from Kawhia, Te Awamutu and Otorohanga, and most prompt and efficient attention by our wonderful Westpac Helicopter crew. We were so very privileged to have had such caring, professional people to help us through this most difficult time. Murray will be so sadly missed by us all.
