Thanks to Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council for calling attention to the end of a remarkable story.
Amelia Limpert died in Missouri this week, at the age of 101, still mourning George, her husband of 81 years-- I said 81 years!!-- who passed away last year at the age of 102.
I don't know much about George and Amelia Limpert-- you can learn a bit here-- but when they reached the pearly gates, if they were asked whether they had obeyed God's commandment to "Go forth and multiply," they could point to:
- 9 children
- 40 grandchildren
- 117 great-grandchildren
- 43 great-great grandchildren
- 13 great-great-great granchildren
- ... and still counting...
Not bad; not bad at all.
May they rest in peace.
