    • Our prayers and loving thoughts are with all the people touched by the loss of a loved one in the Christchurch quake.

    • Our Prayers go out to Christchurch

      We visited Christchurch several years ago and was struck by its beauty and the friendliness of the people. We were devastated to wake to the horrific news of the earth quake and we have prayed every day for the victims and their families. I hope you know how much the world feels for Christchurch suffering and it's loss of lives.

    • I'm doing a lot of prayers lately

      Now I've just found out another Cousin's Husband's Cousin died in the TU building. Her name was Donna. I didn't personally know this person, however my heart goes out to family. I can't believe it when there's a population of about 400,000? Is that correct? I really don't want any more news like this. Prayers to other familys also. I hope they find the missing people alive.

    • My thoughts are with familys

      I just found out that Joseph Tohio (apparently wrongly spelt by media),should be Joseph Pohio that died is my Cousin's second Cousin! So sad. My thoughts go out to the family.

    • My prayers are with you

      My Husband's Cousin's son Jamie Gilbert died in the earthquake. Apparently he rushed out of the bar he was working in. He is survived by his lovely Wife, baby and 3 year old boy. Such a tragedy. My prayers are with their family and other family's who have lost loved one's, friends, etc.

    • Still in disbelief

      I was in Cathedral Square where I work when the 6.3 earthquake struck on 22/02/2011. It was as a very terrifying experience for those of us in the CBD, and those who where effected in outer areas across the city.
      So much gratitude and respect goes out to the thousands of rescue personnel and volunteers working together to free the trapped, and return lost loved ones to their families. My thoughts are with all who have suffered the greatest tragedy of losing a love one in the destruction of our once beautiful Christchurch.
      Kia kaha and keep safe.

    • THINKING OF YOU

      Visited your wonderful city in April 2005. Very sad to see what has happened via tv news.
      We are thinking of you and the wonderful people we met

      This city has the nicest people. To die so suddenly and in fear or confusion in such a peaceful and friendly town is a fate I cannot comprehend. I know those more fortunate in the city like me will contribute to conserve the lives that remain; your deaths were not in vain.
