105-yr-old celebrates diploma & 70 yrs of marriage

Bill Mohr had to drop out of 8th grade back in 1926 to help out his family.

He recently told his daughter he wished he had finished high school, so she worked with school officials to help make that dream come true.
Last week Mohr, who wrote his first book of poetry at age 90, received an honorary high school diploma from his school. So he had a party to celebrate that, his 105th birthday and 70 years of marriage to his 98-year-old wife, Josephine.

"If I die tomorrow, Iím not going to ask the Lord for anything. He has given me everything I need over the years. I can hardly say much more than that," the WWII vet from Hatboro, Pennsylvania, told CBS Philadelphia.
