I have a great-great aunt who will be turning 100 in October. We got together early to celebrate her birthday this past weekend. This is an amazing woman. She has traveled the world many times over and experienced more in her 100 years than most of us could do in 200 years. One of her favorite places to travel was India. She went there by herself many times.
I remember her taking me school clothes shopping in Portland one time and she was such a scary driver that I didn't think I would live to wear the clothes. She was generous with so many people and when she saw a need she would help in any way she could. She would never stay long when she came and most of her visits consisted in her squealing into the driveway and honking until somone came out.
