The wonderful memories I have of "Aunt Elaine" who was really my cousin - because she was my mother, Irma's, first cousin are endless - they were raised like siblings, the Baizens. So many memories: years ago in Malden and the beach in Winthrop or Revere, or in the 1970's sitting in the kitchen watching Aunt Elaine answer the phone on the wall - and hang up without speaking because her mother called to let her know she was home safely by dialing and hanging up - so there were no long distance charges on the bill; Sitting near my Aunts, my grandmother - Hilda, Bessie, Jennie, Annie, and "Philly's Miriam- while Irma, Elaine and others schmoozed in the other room; Elaine's immaculate home in Swampscott, the apartment years later; how meticulous she was; how kind she was when we visited from Detroit; the way she looked at Mush and he at her. We are so lucky to have so many wonderful Baizen relatives and the memories that go along with them. My heart is broken. My thoughts to Wendy, Donna and their families. Thinking of Richie. I love you all. B'Shalom.
