For he's a jolly good fellow: Hip, hip, hooray!

Happy Birthday, Ben! In "My Father's 100th", Thomas Moore describes his dad's special birthday party and shares the secret of his longevity: "He loves people and treats them with respect. He rarely drops his sense of humor and his outrageous feeling for fun. Ordinary people are happy to be around him, so much so that in his early 90’s a hospital hired him to be their go-between for their Alzheimer patients. He could laugh with these people and somehow reach into their world and sense their needs." We have saints among us and Moore knows his father to be one of them.
