Just yesterday a friend of mine, Cr Paul Kurai, and I discussed how sad it was for PNG to lose our Governor General, the late Sir Michael Ogio a week short of his full term.

Cr Kurai said he attended mass with the late GG at St Mary's Cathedral in Port Moresby on Sundays.

I met him Sir Michael in Honolulu with President John Momis on their way to Canada in 1989. They were going to attend a conference on indigenous people's rights, focusing on people like the American Indians and Australian Aborigines.

I had never met them before in PNG. I got the impression that they were gentle, kind and humble. We took photos of each other and I still keep mine.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.
