“My message is intended for Jasen Jones and/or hotel management. My family and I had a difficult year last year including the tragic loss of our son in August 2019. He left behind a wife, a 7-year-old daughter, and an infant son. Needless to say, we struggled with ideas to make a nice holiday season for our grandchildren and their mother. Our granddaughter was feeling blue and was disinterested in celebrating Christmas. We decided the best thing we could do was to try to make ‘new’ and fun memories for the kids; perhaps, make a new tradition. My wife and I had visited Old Kinderhook in the past and had heard about the Christmas Village and all the activities, including skating. So my wife booked our reservations.”
