You might have come across this news, but still i love to share for those who have not heard this. Olive Riley, was 108 years, of age, and she started blogging since February last year, and had made 70 posts. [i]In her final post on June 26, she wrote: "I can't believe I've been here in this nursing home for more than a week." "How the days have flown, even though I've been in bed most of the time. I still feel weak, and can't shake off that bad cough," the post said, adding, "Penny, who's in the next bed to mine, had a visit one day this week from her daughter, who's a professional singer. Guess what happened! She and I sang a happy song, as I do every day, and before long we were joined by several nurses, who sang along too. It was quite a concert!"[/i] Wow, it really amazes me, that she loved her life every second, and even on the day she died, she was singing " happy song" http://www.zeenews.com/articles.asp?aid=455171&sid=ENV&ssid=29 Really she is an inspiring lady. Lets pray for her to soul to rest in peace.

Hi saivenkaat802003! I am sorry to learn about her passing away. However, she is truly an amazing woman to live each moment of her life with happiness in her heart. She must be a very remarkable person. I truly hope that I can at least be half as happy as her until my last breath. Take care and God Bless you always my friend!

Hi my friend! Thanks for the kind words, really appreciate it! I really didn't feel the earthquake and didn't know that there was. haha..I guess it is not that strong and it is very far in my area. We are having a typhoon right now but not that strong. Thank you for caring! Take care and God Bless you always my friend!

Just goes to show us that age is relative. I understand she was quite an active lady with a sharp mind. I am sure her readers will miss her.
