It's great that she received an honorary high school diploma, but I'm also impressed by the fact that she is still vertical and sharp at the of 99.

Heck, whether due to genes, or to a combination of genes and smart lifestyle choices, I say give her an Honorary PhD In Longevity.

Wow. Only ONE credit away from graduating. Well, good for her. I wonder if back then it was less "important" to have a HS diploma than now? Times were obviously different in her time. Every employer now requires applicants to have at least a HS diploma and they check. Hopefully she did very well with her flower shop when she owned it.

-Cheers.
