HENDERSON, Tex. (KETK) -- If you wanted to count the candles on Elmer Hill's birthday cake, you'd be a while. He has 107 of them!
The World War II veteran was honored by folks at Emeritus Assisted Living in Henderson, Texas Tuesday.
Friends and family gathered at the center to celebrate their love for him, including his daughter, Aubrey Young, who was thankful to have her father.
"We do realize God has shown favor on him," said Young. "Word just cannot explain how we feel, because in no way, shape, form or fashion, we'd ever though we'd be able to witness this."
