Living to be 100 years old is a blessing but also may be a curse, haha.  I notice that the deadline to submit is on my birthday, haha.

What a thoughtful way to celebrate the life of those who have managed to live to 100 years old.

What fun, Roy. My aunt died this past year exactly four months to the day before her 10tth birthday. Love that your area celebrates people who've lived this long.

It seems a lot of younger folks are leaving this earth young; but at the same time there are many who are hitting the 100 year mark.
