A total of 306 years equals a lot of memories and three lives well lived.

 

Wesley Manor held a special birthday party for some special people today. 

 

Louise Ballard turned 104, Wynell Adkinson made 102, and Annie Sanders hit the big 100.

 

The three women were presented with birthday plaques, and the staff said it was honored to mark the occasion.

 

"They paved a path for us.  They went ahead of us, and made life a little easier for us.  I'm so respectful and so thrilled to share this time with them, and for them to share their time with us,” said Wesley Manor Administrator Jeff Kirby.

 

Retirement staff, family and friends were there to celebrate with the birthday ladies.  Timeless stories and refreshments were shared after the event.
