(You can get a feel of the love that the Camp Simcha Staff has for it's campers. They are truly a family. I can't say enough good things about Camp Simcha or Chai Lifeline.-L)

Dear Mrs. Paley
As you were moving your mountains Yossi's friends from camp were moving mountains as well We gathered together last night to remember two of our campers from last summer the girl staff members gathered for Ranana and the boys gathered later in the evening for Jesse Silesky. It was very heartwarming and we shared many of our happy memories as well as sharing tears. At the end of Ranana's hazkara Shaindy suggested that we say a chapter of Tehilim for Yosef Chaim. Zahava led the prayer verse by verse as the girls repeated and followed with a mi'sheberach. The boys then came ,davened Maariv and I led them in another chapter of Tehilim followed by a mi'sheberach. We then had Jesse's hazkara followed by two more chapters and one more mi'sheberach.

No matter how far you are there is no distance when it comes to the heart and soul that we call Camp Simcha. You are always in the minds of us all.
