Both of them had a big birthday, but all they cared about was celebrating their mom. Any birthday is worth celebrating, whether you do it with family, friends, or by yourself.
Even more reason to celebrate when you turn 80 with your twin brother or sister and your 103-year-old mother is still with you.
David Mosher and Winnie Mosher Merrill live in Brunswick, Maine, and they are so thankful and lucky to still be celebrating it together.
And they’re even happier that their 100-year-old mother could come to their 80th birthday party. Helen Mosher had reached the age of 103.. Not many people can say that they’ve been through this. They had also just celebrated the start of a new year.
Helen gave birth to twins when she was only 23 years old. Many descendants came after.
Reports say that at her age, she had 79 descendants, and she was lucky to be able to enjoy life with them.
David and Winnie set up food and cake for the party. They both wore red sweaters.
But before they ate, Helen said a prayer in which she thanked God for her family and the country.
As their mother joined them, their guests laughed and smiled as they sang “Happy Birthday” to the twins.
Helen has seen and done a lot.
And David and Winnie’s joint 80th birthday party was one of her life’s best moments.
She knew that she had taken good care of herself if she had lived to be over 100 years old.
She did a great job raising her children and watching them grow up, too.
Even though her children are already adults, she was still worried about them, as any mother would be.
Helen also liked to watch baseball, and during every game, she always kept a scoreboard.
Was it her love of baseball that made Winnie want to bring baseball into their lives when she married Stump Merrill, who used to be the manager of the New York Yankees?
“That handsome Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox” is still Helen’s favorite player, though.
David and Winnie’s other sibling is named Richard, and between the three of them, they gave Helen about 76 grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Amazing.
It was great that they were able to celebrate this birthday and life’s high point.
It would be the last birthday party Helen would attend.
Helen would die 11 months after they marked this important event.
Helen didn’t feel sad when she died.
She went to heaven to be with Charles Mosher, her husband of 64 years and the love of her life.
They celebrated her life, like any close family would, because she had celebrated their lives with them.
And because of this, they remember their family matriarch with the most love.
