UPDATE 2PM FRIDAY 13 MAY 2016: Whanau advise that Cil has now been taken from Waatea marae and is on her way home to Toatoa.
I mate a Cil ki Tamaki Makaurau inanahi. Aroha (Cil) Erstich passed away unexpectedly yesterday in Auckland. Her tupapaku is now at Waatea marae (31 Calthorp Cl, Favona) in Mangere this morning. She is expected home at Ko Te Ahua marae in Toatoa later today. We will update arrangements for her tangihanga as they come to hand.
Ka nui te aroha ki a Joe me te whanau.
E Cil ko koe he wahine aroha. You are Aroha by name and by nature. A, e moe i roto i nga ringaringa o te Atua. Moe mai e kui, okioki atu ra.
