Amongst 100 persons in the world, only 8 can live or exceed the age of 65

*If you are over 65 years old be content & grateful. Cherish life, grasp the moment.

* You did not leave this world before the age of 64 years like the 92 persons who have gone before you. You are already the blessed amongst mankind.

Take good care of your own health because nobody cares more than you yourself! Cherish every remaining moment.
