Today we have a heart-warming story about a 100-year-old grandmother who still cooks for her family. And we got to publish it on her 100th birthday!

Here’s the story, by ace reporter Linda Lombroso.

And a great video by Seth Harrison:

    Dear Liz,
    What a wonderful story !
    It is a great reminder what special things are given to us when we learn from the ones we love.
    Food has always been a great avenue to share special things between family and friends in our house and it is good to see that tradition never goes out of style.
    Kudos to Lilo Pizza for paying homage to this.
    Maybe there are more stories like this that inspires us all?
    A ray of sunshine for sure,
    Johndavid Hensley
