Two more funerals are being held for victims of the New York City train derailment.
Services were being held Friday for Jim Lovell in Cold Spring and Donna Smith in Newburgh. James Ferrari of Montrose was buried Thursday.
An Irish pipe solo was played at the funeral for Lovell, a sound and lighting expert. He was headed to work on the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree Sunday when the Metro-North Railroad train derailed.
Lovell's loved ones remembered him as a dedicated father, caring husband and loyal friend with a passion for his work.
Smith, a paralegal, was active in her church and civic groups. She was heading to hear her sister sing Handel's "Messiah" with a choral group.
Smith's family offered thanks to emergency responders and hospital staff for support in their time of need.
