    Haere ra Lecretia.

    You were a true friend and wonderful colleague. I will always be grateful for the support you gave me and my Brigid, as she faced what you have now suffered.
    Deep peace of the running wave to you.

    yes RIP and you died naturally with dignity and with your loved ones?

    So what was this court case all about and how will others now exploit it??

    The law only knows strength.
    Lecretia Seales understood true power.

    Thank you Lecretia and Andrew Butler for your courage.
