  9. To the family of Garry Bowling,

    My name is Terri Nathan and I used to work with Garry back in the W.D. & H.O. Wills days. I saw the notice in the paper and thought it might be Garry.

    I have just watched such a moving tribute to Garry and yes I can still remember his great smile and his love of the South Melbourne / Swans football club.

    He was a great person to work with and it brings back so many memories of those times in the 70s.

    My thoughts are with the family today and we also live in Mount Waverley so I didn’t realise he was close by. Not sure if you would like to talk but I would love to hear and talk about those times.

    Regards

    Terri Nathan
