      My father's older sister, Maria, married John SKODA .. and she, at age
      102 is the oldest member of our family! She's not a pity .. she's a
      great gal who, despite her loss of vision and hearing, can outdo most of
      us... especially when it comes to eating!
      Love her dearly!
