  6. Bid was a delight to visit. Whether seeing a photo of her on a bridge as it was being lifted, or being on the back of a motorcycle or chosen to carry the Olympic Torch or making another beautiful quilt, Bid was always busy doing something. A few years ago during one visit, a new resident almost 30 years younger told me that he had yet to beat her at Scrabble. He marveled at the speed she could figure out jig saw puzzles but he said, at least I have a chance to beat her with Wii bowling. Bid showed us all how to enjoy all our senior years. Thank you for your time.
