I was so sorry to hear of Patrick's passing. It's been a long time since we had been in contact but I have many fond memories from childhood. We were raised on the "north end" and this time of year we would all be skating at the northend skating rink. All of us that attended South Street School always held a close connection to one another as we moved along to Malta Ave and high school. Patrick you will be missed by all your classmates of 1968.
May your family find comfort in the all the wonderful memories that you have left them with.

How sad Marianne and I are , to wake and read of the passing of one of our fellow " Ballston Spa High School Classmates ". We will always remember Pat's Friendly and out going nature . Pat , Marianne ( Nobile ) and myself all graduated with the "Class of '68 ", where the " Class " voted Pat " Best Dancer " (and rightly so) . We'd always have a smile on our faces , if we saw Pat coming our way , for he was always up to " Something". I remember asking Pat why he was joining the U.S.Navy ? He didn't hesitate , " Man, the Uniforms are " Cool "! He was also proud of being a " Northender " . Although, we've only seen Pat on occasion , since "High School" we always wished him well . As a Navy Family , Marianne and I wish P.O. Patrick M. Grady , USN , " Fair Winds and Following Seas . "
