In a moving appeal to her local community, she described her son as & # 39; the most beautiful soul you could ever meet & # 39 ;.
She wrote: I am looking for fellow kiwi who are able and willing to come to my son's funeral service and prepare the haka.
& # 39; My son Josh battled leukemia for six years and beat it, and was then taken away by the flu.
& # 39; He was only 21 and the most beautiful soul you could ever meet. His service will be held in Childers on Friday 2 August.
& # 39; If anyone knows groups or has family in the Bundaberg area who would like to help me, please contact me. Thank you from a ruined mother. & # 39;
The woman's message was shared by an employee at Joshua & # 39; s school, Sheryl Nimmo.
Mrs. Nimmo did not mention the mother, but described Joshua as & # 39; beautiful & # 39; and & # 39; kind & # 39 ;.
She wrote: & I have a very big question and hope that someone can help a grieving mother to give her beautiful 21-year-old son a farewell that would have made him smile.

& # 39; Joshua was the most kind-hearted and alive young man ever known. He has made us all so proud and we are all scooped to death.
& # 39; I worked in high school and because he was going to miss out on school education, I and his colleagues organized his own special surprise formal. The look on his face was so special.
& # 39; This beautiful mother is absolutely touched by sorrow. He is her youngest and he was so proud of his NZ ancestry that having the Haka at his funeral would be the conclusion needed in such a tragic end.
& # 39; Send me a message if you can help. Thank you. & # 39;
