I remember our first encounter, the patient next to him was swearing,word after word, and at the very same time, Mr McGrath crossed himself, as did I, we both started smiling---we had the same thing on our mind, and it was like a silent bond we kept the entire time we were was an honor to meet such a kind and gracious man. his spirit, his love for god, and people, humbled me. may he RIP. he is in heaven, so may his family keep looking up , as he is looking down on all of you.
