Still spry and mentally active, 92-year old Julia Martinez gives the impression that she has taken a sip from the fountain of youth.
Her quick wit and sense of humor are obvious, as reflected in her quick comebacks.
“The words are there, and they just come out,” she says.
And her words do flow readily, as she recounts the early days of her youth, details of her marriage and family, and the passing of various phases of her life.
