This is a blended image – my mother-in-law at age 94 taken with my cell phone and a texture layer from Sirius_sdz on DeviantArt.
My m-i-l will be turning 100 years old in a few weeks. She has dementia and lives in a nursing home, but is still healthy and loves to sing in the choir. I admire her strong life-force!
Footnote added Sept.27, 2013. Eileen passed away peacefully this morning at age 101. A few days prior she was being lifted out of bed using a swing-like device. Her reaction: “This is FUN!!”
