    From The Commercial Appeal (in Memphis, Tennessee):

    Willie Mae Irving of Collierville enjoyed a trip to Niagara Falls in New York thanks to the Collierville-based Forever Young Senior Wish Organization.

    Irving’s lifelong dream to visit this spectacular sight was granted this summer. She was accompanied by her daughter, Betty Ethridge of Collierville, her granddaughter, Shauna Ethridge, and her great-granddaughter, Raechuhl Jones.

    Irving, who is 104 years old, said, “Niagara Falls was better than I ever dreamed. We went back at night and it was so beautiful. Thank you for this wonderful gift.”
