I realize this story is almost a month and half old but I just came across it and it is about three sisters who are are still living over the age of 100 and they were reunited at the wish of one sister to be with her sisters again. This reunion occurred back in April. This to me is so fascinating. Really amazing to have three siblings still alive over 100.

genetics has a larger factor than many realize in longevity.. I've come to see that purely by observation of what people eat, their behaviors, and the health problems they end up having.

What a great story, it had me in tears. The two younger (102 & 104) sisters seemed quite lucid.

Agreed; if one lives the proper lifestyle but doesn't have the genes for it, then he or she will almost certainly not live to, say, age 110+.

I had three aunts that all lived to over a hundred. Two of them ran a business right up to a few weeks before one of them died. I don't know anything about their diet but they sure exercised their minds right up to the end.

Did any of them reach age 110+?
