As Kaniva News reported on Monday, Telefoni died of what health authorities described as “dengue shock syndrome.”
Her mother, ‘Alavina Telefoni, found it hard to see her cousins and relatives who were
waiting at the airport for her and her dead daughter.
She hugged and kissed some of them in a moment some described on Facebook as
“lo’imata’ia” (full of tears).
Toafei’s body was taken to the Anns Funeral Home and Onsite Cremations in Wiri, Manukau city.
