  • Farewell, Mrs. Ferrell

    A love for milk and tomatoes might have been Aileen Ferrell's secret to longevity.

    At least, that's what she told me when I interviewed her back in 2002.

    She was ONLY 95 years old at the time.

    I can vividly remember sitting in the kitchen of her huge, historic home on Main Street in Lebanon, and talking with her about her love for milk, vegetables (her favorite being tomatoes), dancing and being a mother.

    She was just delightful, and funny, too.
