When Leo “Lee” Walker’s caretakers wheeled him into the conference room of the Hampton Inn Saturday, he was a bit surprised to see so many family members and friends gathered for food and reminiscing. Naturally, he asked what all the fuss was about.
The answer he got was something very few people live to hear.
“They’re here to celebrate your 100th birthday, Lee.”
Not fazed by the gravity of the statement, Walker quickly reached for his wallet and asked whom he should pay.
