Is it proper to wish a supercentenarian "God grant you many years!" Heh. :p

I've seen at least one centenarian given a Many Years after Liturgy, to the amusement of the recipient.  :)

We recently had a 104 year old patient at my job. It's always humbling when you realize the history they've witnessed.

I heard one shout in response "Please, no more!"  :)
