In reaction, @neilbage said; Wow. Very cool. Same birthday as me though he’s 51 years ahead of me.

@Kreuzbergplan; Congratulations to the father. That is fantastic and yet extraordinary. May the guardian angels continue to accompany him.

@Mpowered369; Happy Birthday my dad turns 100 today also. We are two lucky guys to still have them.

@ldjLars; I just became no 101 to like this post❤️ btw my Old man turned 99 this month, and he also keeps going. They’ve seen some shit. When asked what really rocked the world he answered “railroads”.

@hodly00ts; my grandpa was born in 1915 and lived to be 99 years old. he was youthful, optimistic and happy right up until the day the died. when he would walk into a room he would always see the positive.

He saw the positive in everything and everyone. A midnight snack every night, usually a BLT with extra mayo, and he would wash it down with a coca cola—every day until his last. miss you pop-pop! continue to enjoy every moment and cherish his wisdom @AlexandreRiley
@joyfilled_g; Happy Birthday Sir! 🎂 You look fantastic as well Sir!🤗👏. You are the living embodiment of the promise of our Lord – who promises us 120 years in Genesis 6: 3

So for the few who are over 100 years old – it is a true blessing! Enjoy your day with your loved ones! ‘My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for he is flesh; his days shall be a hundred and twenty years’ (Gen. 6:3).
