Taking a little turn from my normal topic of remembering Sunday afternoons as I grew up I’d like to talk about my Great-Aunt who will be turning 95 this coming Thursday. She’s the longest living sibling in my grandmother’s family. When this aunt was born they say she had a veil over her face that the mid-wife had to cut off. I’m assuming this meant she had a thin layer of skin over her face, but this was supposed to have made her special. I’ve asked what this meant, but no one seems to know. But she has out-lived everyone in her generation.
Today her three children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great, great-grandchildren will be honoring her with a birthday party. At her age she still drives, lives alone, and gets around pretty good, though she is moving slower these days. I think anyone living to the age of 95 is doing awesome. They are blessed with longevity.
Do you have any relatives that have lived as long?
