Happy 90th Birthday, Dear Lida!!!
Lida Moser and her family know how to throw a swell party! Lida joyfully greeted her many guests for her 90th birthday fete this afternoon. Lida's birthday was really this past Tuesday, but as she said, "Nobody can come to a party in the middle of the week," so we all gathered today instead. Lida's cousin Stephanie set it all up at Lida's favorite Greek restaurant, and it was a blast.
There's nobody at all like Lida: acclaimed photographer, artist, and writer; warm, affectionate, loyal friend; generous companion; lover of all that's beautiful and good. Lida says she loves being old. She says this stage of her life has been wonderful and full of grace. It hasn't been easy, but she's fought off illness and injury with her characteristic vigor and persistence.
Happy birthday, Lida! I'm so lucky to be your friend.
