  1. Congratulations to each and every one of our treasured centenarians. They have continued to thrive long after their biblical allotment of three score and ten. May God continue to keep them in His protective guidance and care until he calls them home. Congratulations and blessings also to the families and caretakers of these precious gems.

  2. Congratulations to all the centenarians. I pray God bless and keep them all for a few more years. I am sure that they’ll have some rich history of Antigua back in the days. I hope someone has been documenting information from them for our next generation to come.
    When I saw them I cried because I wish my parents were still alive. Both my parents died young approximately 35 and 23 years ago.

  3. Congratulations to our dad, Fred Limerick, and to all of our featured centenarians.

    I pray that God will continue to bless and keep them in his loving and protective care for a few more years, until their tasks have been completed and he calls them home.

    We are also sending sincere thanks to the families and caretakers of our special gems.
