WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — It’s one thing to celebrate your birthday during this pandemic, it’s another to celebrate 100 years.

Trudy Hughes turned a century old Friday.

Loved ones got to celebrate her through a window at Senior Care Health & Rehabilitation.

Hughes asked for 100 cards for her 100th birthday and she got two times that.

“It’s really difficult not being able to give her a big hug and tell her how much we love her,” Hughes’ daughter Patsy Murdoch said. “But it’s just a total blessing that she has been with us for 100 years.”

Family and friends were able to sing “Happy Birthday” through a phone call and the window.

Hughes’ daughter and granddaughter said they’re so thankful for all who sent cards.
