A 90 Year Old Blessing

Just celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday. In my eyes, he has set a new standard for aging – completely independent, mobile, healthy, outgoing and friendly, and an avid reader. (Right now he’s outside gardening.) He regales us with stories of growing up in Cuba, arriving in Miami as a young man, being a dad in New York and an empty nester in Florida. He and my great uncle Willie Byrd are the only men that I’ve known who have lived independently past 90. He’s my role model for aging – and living – well. #BigLove

!Feliz cumple, Papa Fausto!
