When your time comes and you're called home, there's no stopping it. It is impressive when you make it to 100 (George Burns made it,, then died three days later).

But it's not the years in your life that matter. It's the life in your years.

Sadly, Zsa Zsa Gabor, who outlived her sisters Eva [1919 - 1995, 76 years] and Magda [1915 -1997, 81 years] passed on last weekend at 99, dying of a heart attack about 6 weeks short of what would have been her 100th birthday [2/6/1917 - 12/18/2016], so she unfortunately, won't be joining the century club


Meanwhile, Betty White is still active at 94; Bob Barker made a special guest appearance on The Price Is Right at 93; Ed Asner, best known for playing Lou Grant on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Carl Frederickson in Up, and Santa Claus in Elf and several other animated TV Christmas specials, is still going strong at 87; and Dick Van Dyke from the Dick Van Dyke and The New Dick Van Dyke Show (1971-1974), Dr. Mark Sloan on Diagnosis: Murder, and a dual role as Bert the Chimney Sweep and bank president Mr. Dawes, Sr. (credited with the "Nackvid Keyd" pseudonym as the elder Mr. Dawes), is still alive and well at 91 years young.
