On a beautiful Tuesday morning on Sept. 15, the Old Men of the Mountain had their breakfast at the Home Front Café in Altamont.

A farm on Pleasant Valley Road has drawn its residents in by different paths.

ALTAMONT — The simple phrases uttered to family and friends who do motocross summed up James Pearce’s nature:

“He always had a smile,” his father, Stephen Pearce, said. “He was always, ‘lighten up and let’s go.’”

WESTERLO — Daniel P. Brate Sr., a generous and enterprising man who loved his family and friends, died on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015 at Community Hospice in St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany. He was 92.

“He still had opinions and comments right down to the very end,” said his daughter, Regine Brate.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Bryanna Lee Tanner from Rensselaerville was 13 years old when, her family wrote in a tribute, “she entered eternal rest” on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015 at Albany Medical Center. She was born on Nov. 22, 2001.

Last Friday, we had our six-month anniversary for the lunch program, and I am rather proud of our success.
