“We have tested a lot of people in the last few days. A lot! But this lady was special.

At 102 years of age, she is the oldest resident in town. She was born in 1918, the year of the last great pandemic. I got a chance to talk with her for a time and came away in awe of her strength, dignity, and grace.

She told me she always wears a mask and is keeping to herself, except for her daily walk. They say “with age comes wisdom.” Here you have it.” -Chief Kevin Gallagher
