Did you know that wishes have no age limit? A 100-year-old Indianapolis woman received the wish of a lifetime.

Wednesday morning, Jean Magnant and her daughters were on their way to the airport by limousine.

Jean lives in Rosewalk Assisted Living and wanted to see her 93-year-old sister Mary Richards in Texas.  The sisters talk weekly on the phone, but haven't seen each other in five years.

Today her wish came true.

"We're going to Texas to see my 93-year-old sister and her daughter and family!" said Jean.

"Family has been incredibly important to Jean so this was a wonderful wish to grant," said Sunee Fleshman, Twilight Wishes.

Jean's trip was made possible by the Twilight Wish Foundation. The non-profit organization grants wishes to seniors who are over 68 years old. If you know someone who has a wish and wants it to come true, click here to apply.

Jean shared the secret to her longevity. She plays Words with Friends on her tablet, reads the newspaper daily and makes rosaries for her church.
