My parents both were born in 1920 (it made keeping track of their ages easier). Daddy died in 2007 although strokes took his mind a few years earlier. Mama hung on until late 2008. Daddy was the youngest child in his family to survive to adulthood. His next oldest brother died a year and a half ago at 100; he was still mowing his own lawn; granted, it was on a riding mower but, then again, his "lawn" was a few acres big.
