Nathan Barry opens up

I honour Nathan's courage for sharing his story of grief and healing. We can learn much from him as he steps his journey with integrity and authenticity. Warmest love & blessings to you and your family Nathan. Keep surrounding yourself with your happiness tribe as you learn to hold your grief gently over the years.

Thoughts are always of those beautiful girls. And of the families. They will never be forgotten.

Neridah Palmer

Much love to you Nathan to continue your healing journey.

Sonja Preston

Beautiful. I can't believe it's been 20 years I still remember that so vividly.

Sarah Betts

Two beautiful angels, forever young. I think of them every time I go to Tathra. Wishing you peace and happiness Nathan.

Brenda Janson

Wishing you and your families continued love and happiness for the future. Letting go of a small piece of the grief over time doesn't mean letting go any of the love. Always remembered, always in our hearts.

​Jennifer Holland 

Nathan, I know you're a brilliant Dad, enjoy all the moments. You know how precious they are.

Lauren’s father’s letter

Garret your letter is heart warming and at the same time very sad. I can't even attempt to grasp what you have been through but your words are powerful and a reminder to all of us to stand up against this kind of behaviour and speech. 

Lorraine Courtis

What an amazing heartfelt and humanely true letter you wrote Mr Garrett. Your daughter Lauren and her friend Nichole were school friends of mine and will forever be. I always will remember these girls golden smiles. 20 years ago and it still haunts our community and always will. Please always blow a kiss to our beautiful girls whose life was sadly cut so short, as we go past their memorial and remember them.
