NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- Services were held last week for two other victims of the derailment.

54-year-old Donna Smith was memorialized at Brooks Funeral Home in Newburgh. She was laid to rest in Woodlawn Cemetery in New Windsor.

On Friday, Our Lady of Loretto Church in Cold Spring hosted a funeral mass for 58-year-old James Lovell.

Lovell was an independent contractor who often worked as an audio technician for the Today show.

NBC dedicated Wednesday's broadcast of the Rockefeller Tree lighting ceremony to Lovell.

He was headed to the city to prep for the ceremony when the train derailed. He leaves behind his wife and children.

The fourth victim, James Ferrari of Montrose, was buried Thursday. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
