What’s the Secret to living until 104?

Rachel’s story of 104 years of faith, movement, & never giving up

Rachel, a few days from turning 104, went to the doctor’s office for a cortisone shot. She asked where a couple of specific doctors were, and her daughter-in-law let her know that they had already died. Rachel responded, “What! All the doctors have died and I’m still here?!!”

That’s the Rachel I know, or for me, Grandma.

Rachel was born on Nov 29th, 1915, in Hope, Indiana.
