    “I feel good.”

    Irene Miller, of New Bedford, is 109 years young and another birthday is just weeks away.

    “I wish everybody could feel this good,” Miller said.

    She has no complaints as she approaches her 110th birthday.

    “I’ve been lucky all my life,” she said. “I have no problems.”

    Miller spends her weekdays at the Active Day, but lives at home with her grandson.

    Apart from some hearing and eyesight troubles, she’s in good health.

    And she’s certainly in good spirits.

    “Irene is a spectacular person,” said Shirley Antil, who is the Director of Active Day.

    She is hoping people will send Irene birthday cards to help her celebrate.

    “Irene is a light. She just brings happiness to all of us,” Antil said.

    Other than getting some cards, Miller’s birthday wish is awfully unselfish.

    “For people to be happy,” she said.

    Birthday cards can be sent to Irene Miller, care of Active Day, 107 Welby Road., New Bedford, 02745.

    Active Day is celebrating with a party on Miller’s birthday, which is December 28.
