A ‘blessing’ in disguise

Body
It took 50 years or so and a global pandemic but longlost sisters, 53-year-old Bev Boro and 73-year-old Doris Crippen, finally found each other. According to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], they were separated when Boro was about six months old. Both had been searching in vain for each other all these years and they were finally reu-nited when Crippen fell ill as a result of the COVID-19 virus. She survived her bout with the deadly disease and was being treated in the aftermath at a rehab facility in Fremont, NE where Boro is employed as a Medication Aide. Boro recognized her sister’s name while reviewing an updated patient list and, as Crippen put it, her disease turned out to be “a blessing.”

Come fly with me

You’d have a hard time guessing what Robina Asti of Riverside, CA did for a living up until now. At “the ripe, young age” of 99, Ms. Asti is the world’s oldest active pilot and was employed as a flight instructor at the NextGen Flight Academy at the Riverside Municipal Airport, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. The record keepers at Guinness bestowed her with the honor soon after she completed her final flight lesson recently. And, her last student, Brandon Martini, gave her high marks for her skills. He told KABC-TV: “She taught me some things up there that I haven’t learned in well over 1,000 hours.” Meanwhile, Ms. Asti told reporters that she wanted to show that senior citizens are strong, vital and can still contribute.
