Message: My mother was one of Dr.Grody's first patients. He came to our house to see her after surgery. Her name was DeLorise Meeker and we lived on Sisson Ave. in Htfd. Mom died at the age of 102 a year ago April. I started seeing Dr. Grody when I was a teenager. My husband and I were married on the same date as Dr. Grody only a year later, June 18, 1955. He delivered 3 of my four children as my husband was in his senior year of college in Ohio when our first child was born in April, 1956. He gave me the name of an OB to see there. Our sympathy to Dr. Grody's wife and family. He was a wonderful man and the best Ob/Gyn physician.

Message: Although I was half a generation younger than Terry, we were friends for decades. Our families were friendly as well. We both grew up in Hartford and graduated from Weaver High School. We visited often and I knew his children also. His distinguished career will long be remembered. His life was indeed for a blessing.

Message: Dr. Grody delivered my first child, Corey, on May 14, 1975. Dr. Grody was in practice with Dr. Schwartz at that time. It was a difficult labor for me because Corey was facing the wrong direction and natural childbirth was in style. The delivery itself was easier. The next day Dr. Grody said the delivery had been textbook and that it had been a great teaching moment for the class which witnessed it. I hadn't realized that I had been the subject of show and tell. Always the teacher, I guess!

Message: Dear Susan I am sorry to hear of Terry's death but know he had been unwell for some time. I will always remember his friendship to me as well as his encouragement in surgery. He was very much the reason I became a rare UK member of the Society of Gynaecologic Surgeons, a society I very much enjoyed and valued. I was also grateful for his (and your)visit to our hospital in Portsmouth some 20 plus years ago. Kindest regards Patrick Hogston

Message: Dr. Grody was my first OB/GYN. He was such a special man. Always interested in "you" always took time in his office after your examine to just sit and talk, to catch up. Never left his office without a huge hug. When he left his practice in Hartford for NYC. I followed him there. He was more than just my doctor he was a confidant. I have thought of him often and fondly over the years. My sincere condolences to the family. He will always be in my heart and thought may rest in peace. God Bless.

Message: Norton and I moved to West Hartford in August 1961, and immediately joined Beth El Synagogue. Marvin H.T. had written a musical to be presented at Beth El for Hankkah that year, and we joined the chorus. When I became pregnant that December, I immediately contacted Dr. Grody, based on the care and attention and conscientiousness he took in putting on our show. That was the person I wanted to deliver our three girls: Judy Zola, now 52, Susan Solinsky now 51 and Karen Shakun, now age 50. When I was about to leave the hospitalq after my first delivery, Dr. Grody handed me a prescription that said: "you and Norton will go out together one evening a week for date night". We followed that Rx, and had 55 years together with great communication and love. Thursday's were our date night. As a mental health therapist, I give that suggestion to all my couple clients, and always credit this story. Sue, I send you a big hug. I was part of the lunch bunch we had before Judy was born with you and Helen Lewtan and others. AA

Message: I became a patient of Dr. Grody in 1957. Because my husband was a student for the ministry at the Hartford Seminary, he didn't charge us. He would only take our health insurance. He delivered my son at Mount Sinai Hospital in 1959. My husband was then ordained and serving as Associate Minister of the then Fourth Congregational Church in Hartford. He delivered my daughter in 1962. At that time my husband was the Minister at the Westbrook Congregational Church. He continued to be my doctor into the 1970s when we lived in Watertown and Bill was serving as the Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church there. Dr. Grody did an operation at Hartford Hospital for me in 1973. He was always there for me. When my daughter had a problem, he took care of her also. He never charged us and we will never forget that. He was a very special man and you, his family, must be very proud of him and his many accomplishments.

Message: Much of the doctor I am today I owe to Dr. Grody. I first met him when I was a 4th year medial student at Temple. I knew I wanted to be a surgeon but Dr, Grody influenced my choice of urogynecology. He was a superstar not only because of his surgical skills but because he knew how to relate to his patients. I saw the way patients responded to him and I knew that I wanted to become that kind of doctor. He was my role model and mentor. Years later our paths crossed at Cooper Hospital where he again shared his zest for life and his love of medicine and teaching. A superstar makes those around him better. Dr. Grody did just that and I am eternally grateful. May he rest in peace. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Grody and the rest of the family.

Message: I worked with Dr Grody as his administrative assistant/medical secretary and he was the most concientitious gentleman Ive ever worked with. His level of care given to his patients was beyond reproach. He was always very caring towards me and other staff members. I remember his love of snacks/dark choclate that he would share with us. He was well known around the world of academia and shared his love of knowledge with anyone who wanted it. I absolutely loved working with him. Blessing & Peace to his family during this time.
