Warm Rain

warm rain
like teardrops
falling from the sky

the heavens cry
for a gentle man
Sidney Simons

who suddenly
passed away
last night

as he prayed
to G-d
G-d took him

Baruch Dayan Ha'emet

Sidney, za"l, and his wonderful wife, Sophie, moved to Shiloh just a few years ago. At an age when most of their peers move into "retirement homes," they made new lives in Shiloh. They were not retiring. They fixed up a new home, planted a magnificent, enviable garden and initiated social and community activities.

We all pray that Sophie will remain here with us in good health for many years to come.
