Rose Freedman was born in the 19th century, lived through the 20th and strolled into the 21st in her trademark high heels and a stylishly hemmed dress. She will be 108 in March. "I think she really thinks she is going to live forever," said her daughter Arlene March, 64, a Los Angeles psychotherapist. "I know she is not prepared for anything else." Freedman lives on her own in Beverly Hills, cooking and shopping for herself.
