Arshud,
It would have been so nice for all of us to gather at your house for Maliha’s birthday! I miss her as I’m sure everyone else does. And you are so right that she would not have liked this social distancing at all. She always wanted to hug each and every one of us. 🙂

If all goes well, getting together in August would be wonderful.

I hope you and your family are all doing well and being safe.

Warmly,
Yuki

Praised be Jesus Christ Now And Forever {PBJCNAF]. Hope everyone is well and hale, COVID free.
I was just lifting late beloved Maliha like i do for my dear departed in my daily prayers and Masses, lately via zoom and livestream, and remembering that last year at St Lawrence Martyr’s Church in Redondo Beach, i requested a Mass for her this coming June 5. Wow..time flew…and come to think back, her last email to me about Jesus was in August 7…and she’s up there in heaven, now please God and must have met late beloved John too….at least they’re not social distancing up there.
Take care everyone…as we keep our “shelter in place”.

Triunefiat,

Joyce C Payne, OCDS

Dear Friends:
With Maliha’s birthday coming up in two weeks, my thoughts turn to last year’s splendid birthday party all of you hosted for her at Laguna Woods – with Gretchen contriving to make her win at left-right-center. I was hoping we will get together at her birthday this year for lunch at our house – but with the virus situation it is an idle thought – which she never would have entertained.

She probably also would not have liked a world without social gatherings, and without scrabble parties. Let us see what the world will look like at her anniversary – August 21, and we may have a memorial luncheon on the following day- August 22, at our house. In the meantime, best of health to all of you, and keep her in your hearts.

Regards
Arshud Mahmood
