Placid Joseph Pancrace celebrated his 100th birthday surrounded by family, friends and well-wishers and based on the words that were used to describe the life of this St Lucian born centenarian, it has been a life well lived.
Here is a centenarian born in Soufriere, St Lucia, whose dedication and hard work as a father is an inspiration for not only fathers in St Lucia but across the Caribbean.
In the words of his daughter Kathy Pancrace, “he has been a wonderful father, you could talk to him if you had any problems”. She also said “the discipline was strong but it was right”. These are words that any father would love to hear from their children and Mr Pancrace is fortunate to have the opportunity to hear this for himself even at the age of 100.[embedplusvideo height=”509″ width=”640″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1wji0BZ” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/N2kgxh_2w_w?fs=1&vq=hd720″ vars=”ytid=N2kgxh_2w_w&width=640&height=509&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep3898″ /]
I would encourage anyone with family members at this age to celebrate while they are here because after they are gone you will never have this opportunity again. The family and friends of 100 year Placid Joseph Pancrace saw the importance of celebrating his life and it is obvious that he made a significant difference in their lives.
