    Grace and Family, very sorry for your loss of George “Buddy” McGrath I came on the Boston Police Academy class of February 14, l968 with George. We went thru the Academy together, Mayor Kevin White at our Graduation told us we were the Valentine’s day gift to the City. George and I both were assigned to Station Ten, Roxbury Crossing. I worked with George for the next four years and when Station Ten closed George went to Station 11 in Dorchester. We remained social friends for years. Wheat a Nice Guy. Again very sorry to hear George’s passing. R.I.P.
