Vernist Williams

Nominator

Essay

It is with great pleasure that I nominate my father Mr. Vernist Williams as a Candidate for the Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics' Vitality in Aging campaign.  Mr. Williams was born and raised in Jamaica West Indies.  He later married and moved to America where he continues to live.  Growing up I known my father to be a very healthy man.  He never complained of an illness until later on in his fifties.  He has battled a few health issues along the way but some how remains strong.  Mr. Williams has gone through multiple back surgeries, causing him a great deal of pain.  Consequently, he has not worked since his multiple operations.  In addition to back surgery he suffers from a rare skin disorder.  Causing him to make multiple trips to his doctor’s office for treatment.  Often times the doctors will recommend that he avoid sunlight.  Despite all the restrictions placed upon him he continues to remain active.  He enjoys his out door life.  He continues to maintain his garden, as well as take daily walks for exercise.

Mr. Williams now resides in Conyers Georgia.  He has lived there for the past five years.  Although he is unemployed he works very hard each day.  He has a huge garden in his backyard where he plants a variety of vegetables.  He promotes healthy eating in every way possible.  He almost never eats anything process and exercise daily.  He enjoys going walking every morning with his wife.  Occasionally he will visit the pool located in his community for a swim.  Mr. Williams is sometimes limited in the amount of physical activity he can endure.  However, in his eye’s every little bit counts.  No matter how much pain he feels from day-to-day he continues to thrive.  As he approaches his elderly years, Mr. Williams has been more productive in maintaining his physical health.  For that reason among many others I hope you will consider him as a candidate.
