Secrets of Longevity: “About a month prior to my son’s wedding, I got severely ill. I didn’t think I was going to make it. Everything in life was coming together, my son was getting married, our house was finally paid off and I didn’t think I was going to get out of the hospital. So I prayed. I prayed that the Lord give me more time. And he certainly did.”
