"She was my mum, she was my dad, she was my best friend and she showed me the definition of unconditional love,"
Hundreds turned out last week to farewell Kathy Hansen mother of Kiwi musician PNC.
Kathy was well known in her community and worked as a guidance counsellor at QEC for over 25 years. Sam was close with his mother and revealed she was "pretty much my life"
"I felt like we were the same person, like we just were one soul."
QEC principal Mike Houghton said Kathy Hansen was one of a kind, with a very distinguished style.
"She always stood up for the underdog and was not afraid to voice her opinion."
Rest in love Kathy...
