My sincerest condolences to Uncle Russ, her children, and her grandchildren. Aunt Peggy was a ray of sunshine and will be sorely missed by many. My fondest memories of her were from family parties at the Bates. Every year she reminded me of how brave I was when needing to be cleaned up in her bath tub after cutting my foot on a piece of glass in the lake. I don't have a memory of cutting my foot, but many memories of joking about it with Aunt Peggy. She was always in a happy mood and always brought a smile to my face. I wish I could be there to celebrate her life at the services. She, as well as all grieving for her, will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Mickle Family,
I had Mr. Mickle as a teacher in High School and need to let you know what a good teacher he was. More importantly he was a caring , decent person. I was lucky to have had him as my teacher. Port Jervis was a better school because he was there.
I hope your memories bring you comfort and peace.
I am grateful to have known him
Today I had the privilege of carrying a fellow Knight of Columbus and kind man to his rest. Although we never met, I was on numerous occasions told of his kindness and generosity by my daughter, Madeleine, during her visits with her high school friend Michelle Katz to Albert’s home in Florida. It was an honor to return his kindness on this day of sorrow for the family.
My deepest condolences to Barbara and her family during this sad time. We lived at 42 Glass Street and Butch lived up the street from us on Hamilton Avenue. Butch was ahead of me at PJHS and many times we would walk home together. For an underclassmen, Butch always treated me as an equal and shared some laughs on our way home. Whenever I hear his name, I recall his brilliant smile, demeaner and low key personality.
I was sad to be told of his passing. Again my deepest condolences to all.

Bonnie, Bruce and Jimmy, I was so sorry to read of your mom’s recent passing. That was a beautiful picture of her. She and your dad were such wonderful neighbors and I know my mom and dad so enjoyed spending time with them. Now they are all together again in heaven. Sending our thoughts and prayers to you and your families.

I rode the train many times back & forth to & from PJ & Hoboken. As a fellow John (Jack) & Fed I shared several nice conversations with him. One evening a fellow overslept his Middletown stop & woke up in PJ. John offered to drive him back to Middletown which I thought was exceptionly nice. He was a special kind of guy!
