How old was the oldest person you saw baptized at a convention?

    Back in the 1960's a frail elderly woman was baptized (I believe in her late 80's). Later on she was disfellowshipped. An elder later told me it was because she preferred the King James Bible over the New World Translation. I remember visiting her in an assisted care facility and her telling me of her hope of going to heaven. Unfortunately, I mentioned it to the Congregation Overseer. I have often wondered if that was part of the reason.

    "and wore a wetsuit and goggles."
    LOL! I wonder if it really qualifies as baptism if he didn't actually get wet.
