  4. To Harrison McGrath. Just a message to you Harry to tell you how much you meant to your Granddad Garry. Garry looked forward to you coming down to visit so much. He would have a smile on his face for a week once you had called to see him. He always called the front bedroom Harry’s room. Whatever path life takes for you please remember your Granddads example of being an honest and caring person and you won’t go wrong. Warm good wishes young man Andy

  6. To All of Garrys family I send my Deepest Sympathy. Garry and I have been best mates since primary school. Milking cows together so we could race off home and get changed to go to the local dance or to see a picture. I will remember the good times and wish we could have had more time to chat in recent times. Warrnambool is a fair way away but we kept our friendship going for more years than I care to remember. Love to you all in the McGrath family and extended households of Beryl and Garrys kin. Ian Brown. 102 Balmoral rd. Warrnambool. 3280.

  8. Some of my fondest memories of my first few years living in Melbourne are of Garry. If you were friends with his kids, you were immediately his friend too. You were always welcome in his home and you could feel how much he loved his kids and his grandkids and how proud he was of them. He was always ready with a chat, a feed, a hug, an update on his menagerie and occasionally, a bit of medical care when you needed it. Most of all, I remember his laugh. He had such a wonderful laugh and a wicked sense of humour. I’m sure wherever you are now, you’re still holding court and making people smile. Rest easy, Garry and all my love to those you have left behind.
