Nadene Lomu has made an emotion plea on Facebook after discovering that gifts left by her children on their father Jonah’s grave had been stolen.
The former All Black's widow was saddened that some tokens "our sons choose for you keep being taken away from your place of rest".
In a Facebook post last night, she said the boys, Brayley and Dhyreille, were very upset after discovering that their "treasured gifts of love" had been taken.
Lois Quirk, the boys' grandmother, added her own message of shock and disbelief to Ms Lomu's original post saying "[it] saddens me so much to see my beautiful grandsons working hard putting their decorations of flowers in 'once again' for their daddy and they keep being taken away. Seeing their crying makes my heart ache."
