I am sure we all have heard of the slogan "Age is just a number." or "You are young as you feel." Leroy Kostka who served in the United States Air Force during World War II who is 92 years of age who lives with his wife Anni in Bella Vista Arkansas for nearly 30 years made news in his community recently when he decided to use a shovel that he owns to shovel off the snow off of the front porch and sidewalk in his neighborhood. Leroy has gained a large number of admirers who like his work style of serving his community by doing work to keep him active in life. Service to others without expecting a reward is the best way to find happiness in our lives.

It's very dangerous for a 92-year-old man to shovel snow out in the cold. I admire him for his compassion; but he should do something else for his neighbors.

That's impressive he can do that at his age. He doesn't look like a man in his 90s. He has a good work ethic that keeps him looking young.

You are right since my late mom said when a person remains active, they live longer lives since a lot of people die young due to broken hearts.

By seeing him I am motivated, in spite of being 92, he is still active. May the good Lord bless him

I agree with you since a person who stays active lives a longer life span.
