Reflections: "I never thought about getting old. I don't think--I didn't ever expect to get to be as old as I am now. Something inconceivable to me. Although my mother lived to be 100. All my brothers and sisters have died. They were in their seventies. I guess I'm going to be like my mother and live to 100. Who knows?"
