I came across this story because I am thinking of relocating to North or South Carolina (like so many other Florida residents) and read the local news sometimes.
Notice the sentence "her 81 year old daughter took care of her." She was lucky to have a living child at her age. If she was really 113, then my Dad could have been her son, and he was 1 week away from 93 when he died. The saddest thing is to see all your loved ones leave as you get older, but it sounds as if she had a good life. "She had four children, 15 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren and 40 great-great-grandchildren." My paternal grandmother was 106 when she died, although nobody was really certain about her birth year like the woman in this story.
One thing not mentioned in the article is the Lottery or PB. So I guess you really can live a long and happy life even if you don't win! Sure, I want to win some money to make my life a lot easier, but money won't pay for the sun to set or the birds to sing.
