Happy "Sweet 116" Mrs. Gertrude Weaver of Camden, Arkansas
Happy Birthday Mrs. Gertrude Weaver, who is 116 years-old this Independence Day!
According to reports, Mrs. Weaver is the oldest person in the United States, the oldest African American in the world and the second oldest person in the world.
When I last visited with Mrs. Weaver in Camden, Arkansas, she was feisty, full of life and at the time she was proud to say she had all her teeth.
Join me in wishing her a Happy Birthday! May her light continue to shine so bright.
