Advice From a Centenarian

I met Merf serendipitously at Cherry Hill during the last weekend of April. He shared that he had just turned 100. What a milestone!

As a photographer, I’m always eager to capture humans who have stories & experiences worth sharing.

Thankfully, I had my camera in the car and Merf was more than willing to have a portrait photograph taken. Wishing you all the best in your 100th year, Merf. Thank you for your wisdom & kindness!

Merf was willing to share some advice with all of us at The Barnacle:

What’s one piece of advice you could share after living for 100 years?

“Live with good cooks!”

What’s your best birthday memory?

This 100th birthday has been wonderful – a classical piano concert and a week of family time in NS!

    I want to look that good, have that wit and be on a beach in April when I’m 100 years old!
