BECKLEY - The Raleigh County Commission on Aging takes Friday afternoon to honor moms of all ages. All the ladies got flowers and candy, and they got to take part in poetry reading and singing for an early Mother's Day celebration. Organizers say that many of the moms do not have their families close by to celebrate. The oldest matriarch at the event will be 97 years old this summer. She has six kids, 13 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
