ROKO Salote Senirewa Waqainabete said her father was a blessing to her family, the church, the nation and the world as a whole.

The only child of Reverend Dr Tuikilakila Waqairatu delivered the family eulogy at the funeral service at the Centenary Church yesterday.

"Ratu was a man of integrity, one with a big heart and a blessing to both of us, the church, the nation and the world as a whole," Mrs Waqainabete said.

"His passing has brought the nation and so many people together."

She added that as a father he was always forgiving.

She also shared how her father shared with them after dinner how he wished Fijian people could change and all he said was "isa o Viti" as they shared tears that night.

Mrs Waqainabete said she was blessed to have her father walk her down the aisle on her wedding day prior to his passing.

"Ratu was someone who loved animals and he wouldn't tolerate someone who acted cruelly to animals.

"Ratu we miss you very much but we know you are in God's good care."
