Haparua Uncle HK.

The 1972 reply made me laugh out loud!

Thanks for sharing

Those members who have worked in PNG will remember Henry Kila from Kila Bowring. He passed away on the morning of 4th January in Port Moresby. He was only in his mid fifties.
Henry was a real gentleman, tall and grey haired from an early age, he always look distinguished and was one of the first PNG nationals to part own a brokerage in PNG.
I remember arriving at Moresby just before Christmas 1984 with my family and there to meet us was Henry Kila in his big 4x4 to take us to our hotel and then take us to dinner. This was followed up by a trip out on his boat to Fishermans Island at the weekend.
His friendship and consideration continued for the five years that we were there and I know that he had the same sort of relationship with others in the industry.
I am sure that those of us who knew him, offer his family and friends our thoughts for the loss of a really good man and leading figure of the Insurance Industry in Papua New Guinea.

You will be sorely missed by all whom you have came in contact with. Your smiling face will always linger in the hearts of many you have touched and your kindness and generousity will be cemented in the minds of everyone you have supported. We thank our heavenly Father for giving us such a person to know and befriend. If only there were more people like you.Thank you HK for the wonderful memories and may your soul rest in peace.
