We were so saddened by the passing of Mrs. Pachkowski. Bill and I worked with John "Pach" for years at the Sayreville Police Department. Mrs. Pachkowski was such a kind, warm person. Our prayers are with your family.

After receiving the South Amboy/Sayreville local paper, I was very heartbroken to read of my childhood friend, Honey’s, passing. We had many wonderful years together growing up through grammar and high school. We continued to stay in touch over the years visiting, meeting for lunches, and most importantly being a bridesmaid in their wedding. We also celebrated hers and John’s 50th wedding anniversary. Most recently we met for lunch at Camille’s and reminisced about old times spent in Sayreville. Been thinking of her recently thinking we could once again meet up. But God had other plans and we are saddened to say we will miss her until we meet again. She was a good friend who never lost touch with us and her friends. You have now reunited with the love of your life and may the peace of our Lord be with you! ❤️😇👼

My deepest condolences to Lorraine's family. I remember her fondly from growing up and going to her house in my Halloween costumes to trick or treat and later in life at my wedding and bridal shower. I always smile when I remember her and John driving past my grandfather's house while we were on the swing to beep and wave hello and sometimes stop to chit chat. She was a beautiful person and will be dearly missed. My prayers during this difficult time. - Amanda Phillips (Albro)
