Never too old to dream

Sherm Mills celebrated his 101th birthday April 5th with a cake and a flag

Then he decided to do something new, so he grew a mustache and beard to match Andrew Shepherd, the director of Sunrise, where Sherm lives. Then he started talking about flying to Oklahoma in June for the Mills family reunion.

With the help of his daughter Jan and her husband Ron Hansen, Sherm went to Oklahoma. He went to the family reunion and got to meet the youngest member of the family, the new son of his sister Lorraine's grandson Nate.

His young sister Lorraine, age 90, didn't like the look of his facial hair, so he shaved it for church and the family photos.

Sherm has resumed the growing project now that he is back home. One is never too old to dream dreams, and some of them do come true.
