I have a few heroes in my life...one of them is this man.
This picture was taken 2 years ago at his 100th birthday party! Yep, that means he is about ready to turn 102 years old! The amazing part is that he lives by himself in the same home that he raised his children in. Thankfully, my parents live just a few blocks away...but he does almost everything by himself. He still even walks to the grocery store when the weather is good...much to my parents' dismay! He has always had a huge garden...and still gets out there when it's his water turn.
