AwesomePhotos of Identical Twins Who Remain Inseparable As They Celebrate Turning 100

The identical twins who have never lived apart just celebrated their 100th birthdays—and they still can't get enough of each other. 
 
After a century of being attached at the hip, Mary Belle Roach and Mae Belle Powell from Symsonia, Kentucky, still dress alike, get their hair done together, and live with each other in their childhood home.
 
They have even taken to sharing a bedroom in case one of them ever needs anything in the middle of the night.
'We're together all the time; we've never been separated,' Mary told Today. 'That's all we know: to love each other.' 
She will also never forget the Sunday after the first atomic bomb was dropped as she recalled how 'you had to wait in line just to get into church.'
After the war ended, the sisters and their husband bought motor homes and traveled around the country.
 
Over the course of their lifetimes, they have visited all 50 states, as well eight countries in Europe, together.
 
The women, who are both widows, continue to remain active despite their 100 years. 
 
Mae Belle insisted that if she is not with her sister she is worried, and they both agree that they simply can't get enough of each other.
'I need her all the time,' Mae Belle said. 'We've had a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful life and still have it.'
As for their secret to living living to 100, Mae Belle told Inside Edition its 'good genes', noting that their mother lived to be 97.  
'We didn’t smoke cigarettes. We didn’t smoke that pot. We never drank beer,' she added.
