LINCOLN â€” Futurists and the soothsayers of health care predict advances in medical science will one day make people like her much more common. But for now, the ranks of people walking the planet like Edna Mae Boudreau are decidedly rare.
She is extraordinarily old.
And sheâ€™s marking another milestone today. She turns 108.
â€śItâ€™s absolutely amazing,â€ť says her son, Gerard â€śBudâ€ť Boudreau of North Smithfield. â€śI never thought Iâ€™d meet anyone who was 108 years old, let alone my own mother. And to be able to communicate with her and have her be so sharp, well, itâ€™s just amazing.â€ť
