'To all of you lovely people at Resthaven who have showed mum and dad such care, kindness, patience and good humour over the years. We are missing dad like crazy but are still comforted by him going pretty much on his own terms and with so much lovely care around him.  Thank you and best wishes to you all for some joy and peace over Christmas and the New Year, with our very kindest regards and gratitude.'

'Hi Rachel. I want to commend you and the team for the highly professional and consumer directed approach you and your team are taking during this challenging time in NZ history.

Thanks so much for your efforts, we look forward to visiting in person when the time is right.'
