Antigravity has probably lost its oldest fan: 87 year old Mary Gremillion of New Roads, Louisiana died last month. I sent Mary her first copy two years ago when there was an article about my daughter and granddaughter in it. She loved the magazine so much that I sent her a copy every month after that. She said she really looked forward to getting it and continued to enjoy each edition. Mary was really a unique, interesting, and loving woman, definitely an example of “Young at heart.”

She lived in New Orleans for many years. She and her husband ran the Do Drive In Theater on Metairie Road (for those of you old enough to remember). She even decided to donate her body to LSU Medical School—doing good after she was gone. Antigravity and many others will feel her loss. —Mama Toni (Skwirl’s mom)
