BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — It's not every day you run into a set of identical twins. It's even more rare to meet a pair of 90-year-old twins.

On Saturday evening, Lorraine Gardner and Florraine Briggs had a birthday party surrounded by family and friends. The theme was "90 years of hope".

"With all the hatred that's going on, here's something that's positive that we can look at and move forward saying 90 years of hope," said Tonya Briggs Daniels, daughter and niece of the birthday twins.
