The World's Oldest Twins Are 103 And Let Nothing Separate Them
The oldest twin sisters in the United Kingdom have lived side by side and shopped for matching outfits for the past 103 years.
Wales Online reports Glenys Thomas and Florence Davies – born in 1911 – have spent their entire lives in the tiny town of Abertridwr, Wales. The pair reportedly even remembers the arrival of the town's first public bus.
Gwenda Stacey, Thomas's 65-year-old daughter, told the Daily Mail a life filled with small pleasures is the cause of the sisters' long, healthy existence. She said,
They have lived a simple life. Neither Mam or Aunty Flo can drive. They never went abroad. But they were always happiest together.
The whole family's social life was centered around their church and their community. You had to stay local in those days because it was so hard to get around.
Indeed, Thomas and Davies loved living close to one another -- so close, in fact, they bought houses next door.
Even now, the sisters reside in a pair of attached apartments at Abermill Care Home.
The two kitchens, linked by a doorway, were connected especially for Thomas and Davies.
Although the twins lived without aid well into their 90s, old age-related aches and dementia finally caught up with them.
Surrounded by a brood of five children, 12 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, they are content.
