Firefighter Paul Brady may now rest in peace. HIs heartbroken family may take some solace in the fact that this fine mans' dedication to and sacrafice for his beloved Malverne community is recognized and forever remembered by the people of the State of New York. Firefighter Brady volunteered for the fire service not for the recognition or admiration of his community and certainly not for the conveniences associated with such service. He, like the vast majority of men and women who volunteer for the fire and emergencey medical service across the State of New York, as well as across the nation, do so out of a deep sense of service to the community. We on Long Island are most fortunate to have such a fine group of well trained, dedicated and selfless individuals who are willing to go into harms way to help a neighbor. Let's remember Firefighter Brady for these qualities which he absolutely possessed, and let 's not squabble over the time it took New York State to do the right thing. Firefighter Brady you were a good and faithful servent. Rest in peace. May God watch over and protect his family. Thank you.
