Not sure what to say?

Thank you, Mr. Ehrensbeck, for providing so many of us the opportunity to have skiing be such a major part of our lives. My brother and I could be found skiing at your mountain with the Whitesboro Ski Club nearly every Saturday of our school years in Whitesboro! My brother and I were so fortunate to have parents who taught us the value of being outside and having a life-long sport to enjoy!

You will forever live in my heart!

With heartfelt gratitude to you!

I shared the sad news with my brother Joachim, and we reminisced on Jim's life and how much he meant to our family. Jim made such a difference to the people of Old Forge. While I wasn't the big skier that my 3 brothers were, growing up with McCauley is just one legacy of Jim's that has stayed with all of us over the years.

Our heartfelt condolences to all the Ehrensbecks, you are very much in our thoughts.

Thinking of all of you at this sad time. I am sure Jim and Stew are trading stories and catching up. Keep close to your hearts all the good memories of your parents - they are now together again.
I am sorry that I didn't get to know all of you - Stew had so many fond memories to share with me.
God's peace to all of you.

Louis, my sincere condolences on your loss......

I have so many great memories of Jim and his family !
Many hunting and fishing stories. John Nahor and I are the last of the spring Lake Placid fishing trip.
I seemed to time my day to arrive at their home for " Cocktail hour "
I say home not house because it was a family place. I enjoyed watching all the kids grow up to be great adults.
Jim and Sparky were sweethearts from High School and it never changed
As an old lumberjack friend would say " Jim was...

So sorry to hear of your loss. I was just with my Dad down in Florida, and was showing him the picture from Mr. E's 90th bday. At our home on Main Street, we had the most awesome outdoor fireplace that was used for many gatherings. Always would receive comments on what an impressive fireplace it was! May your memories and messages of sympathy help you through this difficult time. Patty (Pelletier) Duffy & family.

We were so sorry to hear of Jim passing. It was always nice to get off the lift at McCauley and see his smiling face. He will be missed Ron & Jill Hollister
