From Morning Report, 8:42 am on 27 March 2019

There were prayers, tears, laughter and smiles at a gathering to remember father and son, Naeem and Talha Rashid, who were killed in the mosque shootings.

Naeem's sister-in-law made his favourite dish - Afghani pilau - for more than one hundred people who came to her house to show their support. RNZ reporter, Joanna MacKenzie, was there and spent time with the family.
