That is a quote from Catherine Walker who just celebrated her 99th birthday this past Monday with those that she loves in her life.

When you live to be 99, you tend to outlive many of the people that you love.  This did not stop Catherine from finding new life.  Not only does she live in a local retirement community, but she volunteers in their Alzheimer’s wing.  She has a great sense of humor and enjoys herself there and her neighbors and friends appreciate her time.

I first read about her in the Chicago Tribune where you can read the original article.

By the way, she makes “damn good cake.”  I hope she had some damn good cake for her birthday – she deserves it!!
