My friend’s grandmother passed away yesterday near the ripe old age of 112. She was the oldest living person in her state.

If 2020 was her 112th year, she was born in 1908, which means that she was 10 years old during the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic. I am the father of an 11 year-old in another pandemic, and it is quite something to imagine her at 112, in the year 2120.

RIP Ella Gertrude Ellison.
