MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A hundred years and unlimited reasons to smile.
Mrs. Louise Munnings-Payne turned 100 years old on Thanksgiving, but Friday was her golden celebration.
“Living life like it’s golden! That was actually her motto, that’s where she lived, she lived in enjoying life,” said her daughter, Patricia Payne.
It’s quite the contrast on Black Friday at Mrs. Louise’s house – still in bed while most were out early in lines. But her family wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Forget the shopping, it’s a blessed Friday. We don’t say Black Friday, we say blessed Friday. Thank God for her, thank god for family,” said her first grandson, George Row Jr.
Family member after family member filled up the small house, honoring a woman who’s given so much to them and so much to the community.
Happy Birthday, Mrs. Louise!
