"Our Mom at 100 is an amazing lady - blessed with good health, strong body and mind. We celebrated by taking her on her first cruise and she had a blast. She danced, stayed out late and never napped not wanting to miss out on anything. We had 4 family generations celebrating with her. The other guests and crew on board knew about the 100th birthday lady Marguerite Purcell in her bright red tee "Cruising 100". She was asked many times, "what is your secret for a long and healthy life"? She inspired many with her answer. Remember to count your blessings, don't worry about the things you can't change, and eat lots of dark chocolate See's Candies. Mom is very patriotic and loves the USA and she gives thanks to God for all of her many blessings. "
