111-Year-Old Freeport Woman Wants To Meet Tom Brady
A 111-year-old Freeport woman has written a letter to Tom Brady, telling him she'd like to meet him.
Dorris Farrar was born in Bar Harbor in 1906. Her family moved to Connecticut for a time and eventually ended up in Massachusetts. She returned to Maine in 2003, where she worked as a nurse. She drove her own car until she turned 100.
Think about the changes she must have seen in that amount of time. Teddy Roosevelt was president when she was born! The U.S. didn't include Hawaii and Alaska. And, with all the talk about Katahdin Woods and Waters in Maine, it was in 1906 when President Roosevelt declared the Devil's Tower in Wyoming the very first National Monument.
The nurses at the assisted living home where she lives told WGME-TV she stays young by walking and sending lots of letters. And it's one of those letters that's getting a lot of attention because it was addressed to Mr.Tom Brady! Farrar told the New England Patriots Quarterback that she'd love to meet him, and called herself his oldest fan. (I think that's a safe bet!) Here's hoping someone can help make her dream come true!
