I would like to express my sympathy to the family. I was introduced to Rev. O'Rourke through our mutual friend Jack Niflot, who loved and respected him dearly. I attended his church in Fremont Center with Jack occasionally then participated as a member for a time after Jack died in 2013. I would typically sit in the pew behind Ellie and her daughter. He was a good man and I pay my respect. (Please note that I waited at Evergreen Cemetery near Ellie's marker for over an hour on Friday, but the 4:30 p.m. graveside service must have changed.) - Laurie Ramie, Callicoon, NY, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jim worked with me at Liberty-Middletown Express for several years. He was a good friend, always helpful. He was fond of our son, Kyle, interested in his activities. Our condolences to his family. Cheryl and Paul Muthig
