Morning Edition's monthly series on the lives of Centenarians, One Hundred Years of Stories, features people from across the country who are one hundred years old—or older. In today's report, Neenah Ellis talks with Roy Larkin Stamper, a 103 year-old preacher and former cowboy. He settled in Oklahoma before it became a state, when it was still called Indian Territory, and remembers the Cherokee Indians dancing at a "stomp ground" not far from his house. But despite his advanced years amd full life, he has a dark view of the future.
