This "Picture of the Day" is a bit sadder than the rest. A distinguished person has died. 116-year-old retired school teacher, Besse Cooper, passed away yesterday. She was the previous record holder for the worlds oldest person, but now that title falls to 115-year-old Dina Manfredini. What was Besse's secret to a long life? She said it was staying out of others' business and abstaining from junk food.
Here's to you, Besse, and your inspiring refusal to let time get you down!
