Prayer And WD-40: Molino Woman Celebrates 104th Birthday

April 1, 2013

Hattie Schneider of Molino celebrated her 104th birthday on Easter Sunday,  giving credit  for her long life to “prayer and WD-40″.

She says she is not sure why she has lived so long or what God’s purpose is for her,  but she has trust in the Lord.

She has one son, Carlton Abbott, two grandchildren, and many great and great-great grandchildren.  Her family and friends said they thank God everyday for blessing them with her, and she is a true inspiration to everyone.

    Vivian Abbott and Family would like to take the this time to say that I am very honored to have known Granny for the last 20 years, I know I’m not family, but she has treated me like I was. She is such a thoughtful and caring person, and is a great prayer warrior, when she would be staying at the house with Ben her Grandson and myself, you could hear her at night when she would say her prayers, she would name people’s names off not missing a soul,
    I will always love this lady, she always treated me like Family
    Happy 104th Birthday sweet Lady

    Happy Birthday Aunt Hattie,

    You’ve always been my favorite aunt. We’ve had some wonderful times together, and I
    have enjoyed every minute we shared. I love your sense of humor. I think that’s one of the things that keep you so ‘young’.

    David & Adina were thrilled to get to see you a couple of months ago. I wish I could have been with them.

    You’ve been a blessing to so many, and I thank God that he blessed us with you.

    We love you.
