A friend

 Mom, it's your birthday. As much as I want you back, I am thankful for what you gave me and your family and friends. Today is hard. I can't lie. I try to think about other things, get through the day, but it's hard. I posted a picture of you on Facebook. It almost feels like you will see it and just comment something funny, but alas, that's not happening. I am not going to cry again. I just don't want to go down that path right now. I want to be happy on the day you were born many years ago that turned into creating lives of the 5 of us and lending your love and friendship and motherly/sisterly advice to so many. I was delighted to see a friend of so many years comment on my post and I want to include it in this post. I don't want to forget anything...nothing before, nothing during, and now, nothing after. We all miss you. We miss you so much. I remain, as always, your son. Happy Birthday Mom. I hope you're having a Peps, maybe a piece of pie or cake or whatever you want. Love you...

From Elaina...

Happy heavenly birthday Mrs. Malin. I always looked forward to our conversations as an adolescent. You never made me feel like I was a little kid. You were truly interested in what I had to say or my views. Looking back there wasn’t too many adults that would converse the way you did with us kids. Later on in life, our paths crossed again at the Havertown Super Fresh deli counter. What a pleasant surprise to see a familiar friendly face from my childhood. I will be forever grateful the universe put us in contact again. We were able to pick up right where we left off on my grocery shopping days.  XO

 I hope you're able to enjoy this day with John and Pop Pop and Mom Mom. I miss you all.
