Being 93-Years-Old -- You're Doing It Right.
Chances are there's not another 93-year-old in the world who paid homage to his late wife the way Jack Hake of Dorset, England did. Despite his advanced age, Jack completed a charity skydive while carrying his late wife's ashes with him. Jack said he carried the remains of his beloved wife Veronica because "we did everything together." Jack made the tandem dive from 10,000-feet with a trained skydiving instructor. He noted, "I had to be lifted into the plane because I couldn't walk but I wasn't nervous." He had emptied Veronica's ashes into a plastic bag which he then strapped to his chest. He added, "My wife and I were married for 70 years and we did everything together. We've done it all - boating, fishing, cycling. You name it, we did it together. We have never been apart."
