Long life with good health is one of the things many look forward to. Lil Thomas, a singer, celebrated her 100th birthday with her big sister, Amy Winifred Hawkin, aged 108, sitting beside her.

The birthday party was organised for her by her home caregiver. The two sisters have received six birthday cards from the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, as the number may increase when Winfred turns 109 by next month, Metro UK reports.

It should be noted that the two sisters were good performers who graced the popular stage of Newport’s Empire Theatre for years.

The celebrant said she had been singing since the age of two when she already had a very good voice, adding that her sister, on the other hand, was a good dancer referred to as the “highest kicker in Wales”.

“I was fortunate to have a pitch-perfect voice at the age of two. It was like Katherine Jenkins, but just not trained,” she said.

She also recalled how both of them were always singing together on the bus with boys when they were coming back from the pub.

Lil got married to Donald, a deputy postmaster, and they had to move to South Africa after World War II. Soon after, they returned to Britain where she worked as a caretaker for a while.

The centenarian recalled one of her fond memories, saying she remembered when she visited McDonald for the first time on her 93rd birthday.
