Death of Sir Paul Reeves
Former Prime Minister Helen Clark said that Sir Paul Reeves was a great New Zealander who had served his country, his church, and his iwi with great distinction throughout his life.
"After his retirement from the position of Governor General, Sir Paul represented the Anglican Church at the United Nations in New York. I was very grateful that Sir Paul came with the delegation of Maori leaders who formally presented me at the United Nations in New York in April 2009, an occasion to which he brought great mana.
"My heart goes out to Lady Reeves and all Sir Paul's family at this sad time", Helen Clark said.
