Florida woman celebrates 100th birthday in style

Happy birthday to you, Agnes Miklus!

BRANDON, Fla. — It's a very special day for Agnes Miklus.

She was born 100 years ago on June 12, 1919 -- today is her birthday! Miklus celebrated with her closest friends at the Bloomingdale Adult Day Center in Brandon, Florida.  

"God's been very good to me and I'm very grateful to have such friends -- and real friends!" Miklus said. "Thank you all very, very much. This is wonderful."

While today is all about Miklus, she wasn't the oldest person at the center: John Miller turns 103 in August, and Iva Bell will celebrate her 108th birthday in September.
