I just came back from the funeral of my great-grandmother, whom had lived until the age of 108.
She was my father’s grandmother and they shared a birthday (February 12). She was also the mother of my own grandmother who died in 2011.
108 years has been a very long time to live. She was the living proof that you can do whatever you want as long as it makes you happy and you hurt no one you can live a long and happy life.
5 children, 22 grandchildren, 61 great-grandchildren and 20 great-great-grandchildren (and a few on the way). She always wanted extra sugar in her tea, never ate her vegetables, always was generous and friendly, wasn’t sick and walked until her last days.
Rest in peace Oma Wiesje
