What a sweet and wonderful woman. The OLDEST person in the United States just passed. 114 year old Lessie Brown of Ohio was surrounded by so much love and so many relatives. The amazing thing is that her family and those around her say she CREDITED HER VERY LONG LIFE TO HAVING A SWEET POTATO NEARLY EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE UNTIL SHE WAS 100. This is video of her 114th Birthday. Thank you Bessie, for being an inspiration to us all.
