Rodney , Sisters and Family: I can still see your Dad taking his leisurely walk around the block in the evenings, stopping to chat with neighbors or to say something funny or wave. We had a wonderful neighborhood growing up. Couldn't get away with anything, everyone raised us. Such a wonderful man will be missed. May God continue to bless you all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am sure that I speak for the “six pack” of Pooles when I say that Mr. Sims was a loving and caring surrogate parent to us all. He was instrumental in our upbringing and added both wisdom and compassion to us all on a daily basis. His love ❤ made us all better people. Can’t stop crying at the loss of a great man marking the end of the Kentucky Street Family. All he ever showed us was love - thanks you, Mr. Sims! The Pooles

My sincere condolences to the family. I have known Moses for a longtime as he was my sisters mother in law neighbor on Kentucky St. Last saw him when he was working at Mr. Dave's. He was kind and funny. Rest in peace my friend as your work here on earth is done. Will miss your smile & wit.
