While many of us hope to live to be 100, Rae Pearl has actually done it. Actually, the West Lawrence Care Center resident celebrated her 105th birthday this week with several family members, facility administrators, and other residents.
The party featured an array of food, music, and a special birthday cake for the celebrant. Mary Lou Tressy (Administrative Assistant for the office of Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer) presented Pearl with a proclamation from the Assemblywoman.
During the celebration, other residents took to the microphone to express their love and appreciation for the ageless wonder.
"Rae is a beautiful person. There should be more people in the world like her," said one of the residents.
