Looking for Taufa, a wonderful caregiver

Lafayette Ca., USA

Dear Matangi Tonga:  

I am a resident of Lafayette, Ca. and had the pleasure of knowing Taufa Talakai (63) from Tonga, over many years when she worked in and around San Francisco, CA. My family and I first met Taufa when she took care of my husband’s father, Norman C. Harris, in Rossmoor, Ca. before he passed away. Taufa was such a wonderful caregiver and she became an important person to all in our family. We stayed in touch with Taufa for years after Mr. Harris’ death, as she moved to different families to care for their loved ones.  We last saw Taufa at our daughter’s wedding, October 2009, when she danced a lovely hula in honor of our daughter and her husband.

We have lost touch with Taufa, and have no way of knowing if she is still in the San Francisco Bay Area, or if she has moved back to Tonga to be near her son and daughter and their families. I would be very grateful if you can help me find her again.

Martha P. Harris,
