Chuck Norris honors Mum as she reaches 102 – she worked nights to get her three sons out of poverty

Kicking it with his mom on May 4 to celebrate her 102nd birthday, Chuck Norris posted a heartfelt message honoring the woman he says is “so full of life that she might make it another 100 years!”

“Mom, I don’t know what’s more difficult to believe: that you are 102 years old or that you have a son who is 83 years old,” Chuck, who turned 83 in March, says in a letter to his mother, Wilma. Regardless, I’m so grateful you are my mom. I have always been. We’ve been through thick and thin in this life and are still going strong.”
