Elderly woman shares the secret of living a long and happy life

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - In the small town of Hebbronville lives a woman who is celebrating a very important milestone.

Antonia Perez is celebrating her 102nd birthday.

She is now part of a small percentage of the population who has made it past the century mark.

Antonia is celebrating alongside her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The 102-year-old celebrated her special moment with her loved ones at her favorite restaurant.

When asked what the secret was to living so long, Antonia answered, “Nothing, I’m just here and there doing things and people asked how I’ve lived so long, but I don’t know. They ask me if anything hurts but no God has helped me not hurt. I fall every now and then but nothing happens I’m used to it.”

Antonia’s family will be having a very special celebration on Sunday.
She hopes that some of her nearly 100 grandchildren will stop by to see her.
