102 years young

March 21, 2004

Albany -- An Albany woman has 102 reasons to be thankful. Carrie Dyes turned 102 years old this morning. Dyes, who was born in 1902, lived on her own until just last year. She says having faith is the key to living a long life.

"I believe if you serve the Lord and do as he commands you to do and I'm saying this because I know the Bible you see. If my people who are called by my name would humble themselves and pray," says Dyes.

Dyes also attributes her longevity to a healthy diet and plenty of walking.
