"Who is the oldest person you personally know?" For me, that's fairly easy. My grandmother. We call her Ma. She is almost 86 1/2 years
old young. There is no stopping this woman! Even though, to be truthful, her body doesn't allow her to do everything she wants to do. Nonetheless, she is a very capable and determined woman. Yes. One will never question that determination. Woe be unto you, if you dare.
We lost Grandpa a little while back, and a hefty chunk of Ma went with him. But she still will greet you with a hug full of love and a wry smile. Though she in some ways questions why she's still here, she doesn't shy away from imparting experienced wisdom or cracking a joke, or even ranting about some of the wrong in the world. I know her presence has a purpose, even if she doesn't.
