For some, age is the depressing quantification of life continuously experienced. For some, that depression is amplified with the incrementation of their years . Yet for Mrs. Neressa Mahoney affectionately called "Ms. Neer"age is nothing but a number. The residents of Top Bellefield, Manchester, would have averted their eyes from the West Indian Greats of renown to pay their respects to their own centenarian on Sunday, Sept.7, 2014 . Mayor and Councillor for the division, Brenda Ramsay, was also present in acknowledgement of the stellar achievement of the golden ager. Still with oozing verve, complimented with a fiery sparkle in her eyes, Mrs. Mahoney is a living testament that one is truly as young as one feels.
