From the day aunt Henny became 99 years old, I started to follow
her through a photo diary. Even though she has lost a lot of
friends, she is always very positive and excited when she receives
a visit. Meanwhile, she has passed 100 years, but she is in good
health. She is not lonely, she says, because she enjoys the peace
around her in her new home. We can chat for hours about politics,
photography and news in the family. I always show her the latest
gadgets on internet, so she knows what is happening around her.
Our relationship has become very strong and we both look forward
to it every time.
