      Hello Everyone:
      This is Kay Reimers, Gary’s wife. I’m reading his e-mails.  Gary has left the Friends Care Center after a set-back and may be moving to medical facility in Beavercreek.  I know he contacted you about visits.  I’m not sure why, but he did believe his father, who left when he was a baby, was Jewish.  Nothing confirmed, just family stories.  I think after his major surgery he was having a crisis of faith.  I’ve heard that happens. 

      I did drive Char Schiff and we’re friends but personally I’m Presbyterian. Gary never had much interest in religion before this.  Perhaps he will be more active when he recovers.  I would certainly encourage it but religion is of course always personal.

      Thank you for your responses and please remember Gary in your prayers.  Seymour, we still think about the Shakespeare group fondly and may return when Gary’s health improves.
      Sincerely
      Kay

      I've never met him as best I recall, and I think I've met Kay only once.  I think I will try to visit him sometime, but not with plans to sing or say prayers with him.

      To everyone who happens to be interested:  Yes, he is Kay's husband.  They were both attending my shakespeare class until lately they were directing other things.  I have NEVER broached the subject of religion to either of them.  As I said yesterday, I stopped by to see him on my way to therapy and he seemed OK but for the loss of weight.  I plan to revisit him tomorrow when I return for more therapy at which time, maybe I can answer more of your questions

      Darn good question, Larry.
      I know nothing. Maybe we should send a message to Todd Sheets, as Cheryl suggests, and ask these questions.

      Regarding singing or worshipping, does anyone know if Gary Reimers is Jewish?  

      Is he the husband of Kay Reimers, who until recently was driving for Char Schiff on an as needed basis?

      I don't know the situation, so not sure if folks should go over
      en masse or not? If you are willing to visit, perhaps the best thing
      would be to call Todd Sheets and find out?
      It might be better to go as singles if he prefers?

      Cheryl,
      I don't know him either. I just thought if someone wants a Jewish presence of visitors that they might appreciate songs of worship-- kind of like the threshold singers, only much earlier.
      Maybe a few of us should plan to go visit him and we can ask him if he would like that in the future.

      Nice idea David. I have no idea if he would like that--do you know him?--
      but if someone finds out, and he does, I would be happy to go over with
      you and do a modified service or whatever.

      Cheryl and others,
      I would be glad to visit Gary Reimers with others and, if he was interested, sing some of your worship music. Would anyone want to join me/us for that?
      Just a thought...

      David

      I went to see Gary just now since I live across the street and he seems well although showing loss of weight.

      Hi Chevre,
      We've been contacted by Todd Sheets, the Activities & Volunteer Coordinator
      of the Friends Care Community. Gary Reimers, a patient in their Rehabilitation Unit,
      Rom 511, would like some visitors from the Yellow Springs Havurah. Todd asks that when someone does visit, they should please sign their name in the spiritual visit book on the podium
      just inside the front double doors--he would like to show the book to the state 
      inspectors to prove that visits actually happen.

      Please let us know via listserv if you are going to visit--a number of visitors would
      be great, but it would be helpful to know that someone is responding to do this mitzvah!
      Thanks,
      -c
