RICHMOND, Va. -- Please join us in wishing a HAPPY 104th BIRTHDAY to Mrs. Cleo Harris.

Here’s what her family shared:

“We are reaching out to you to honor my Grandmother's 104th Birthday. She loves watching @CBS6. #COVID19 has changed how we celebrate special occasions, so we must be a little creative.

She was born in 1916. Her father was a farmer and her mother was a seamstress.

She was married for 48+ years.

She has four children, 13 grandchildren, 15 great and 24 great-great grandchildren.

She loves sweets, vanilla ice cream, black-eyed peas and stewed tomatoes.

She is a seamstress; she loves to cook, and her specialties are sweet potato pies and coconut pies.

Her home was the place everyone wanted to visit.

She is a small woman in stature, but she speaks with authority.

She is a God-fearing woman, very kindhearted and generous woman.“
