A first cousin of my Great Grandmother's is celebrating her 105th birthday today! Her niece whom I have corresponded alot with doing genealogy send this picture of her Aunt Mildred with her 105th Birthday cake, thankfully they did not put a 105 candles on the cake. Who is oldest person in your family still living?

I honestly don't know. We aren't exactly a close family.

@Courtlynn Yes i understand i have been pretty lucky to know many of my distant family members, even moreso since i've started doing genealogy. Have you ever thought about doing you're family tree?

What a happy photo. Aunt Mildred looks super good for being so up there. My Mom is going on 96, as you know.

Yes i hope to go to her birthday this November but i wish i could find a way to go visit for a few hours then leave as last time i did not feel comfortable staying the night i just seemed in the way as Debbie was very busy as she had alot to do, i know that is often a hectic time for her.

Of my immediate relations that I know of, would be my Aunt Dorie, my mother's second oldest sister. Her and my Uncle Kenny, my mother's youngest brother, are the only two left in the family right now. I'm the oldest of my siblings.

She looks really good for being that old. My Mother's sister is 94 years old and lives in Oregon. She is still in good health.
