COLUMBIA, S.C. — Asilee Gallishaw Walker turned 102 years old Saturday.
She is a native of South Carolina, and spent the afternoon celebrating with family and friends.
We asked Walker what the secret is to a long, healthy, happy life. Without hesitation, she thanked God.
"I never sit unless I thank God for his time and the day. Rain or shine, I thank God in Heaven. My great-granddaddy taught me that," said Walker.
Walker, whose nickname is "Roxie", tells us family members call her every day to see how she's doing. Many will bring over food and gifts when they come visit.
During Saturday's celebration at The Medallion Center, singing and prayer filled the air.
"Thank God for keeping me alive," said Walker. "I'm just like a record player. I keep on turnin'!"
