Five centenarians from one island

 ..
..

I grew up in Lushes Bight on Long Island.

Although I no longer live there, that is where my heart is. On Sept. 12 of this year, David Oake of Beaumont will be 101 years old and I wish him all the best.   There are five people from Long Island who have reached their 100-year milestone during my lifetime, including: my mom’s brother, Roland Rice; my grandmother’s brother’s wife, Dorcas Parsons; my next door neighbour, Aunt Amelia Morgan; a Caravan woman who moved to Corner Brook later in years; David Oake, who still resides in Beaumont.
Happy 101st birthday, David.
