Best not to stop by her home unless you were hungry. Louise’s daughters knew they could bring a gaggle of their girlfriend’s over; they’d leave stuffed. The secret to her cooking was to toss a little parsley into everything. Her house was neat and tidy and her war on clutter never ceased: a place for everything and everything in its place. Of course it was just par for the course for a lady who was dressed to the nines even if she was just vacuuming. She kept her mind sharp, devouring three newspapers a day and staying glued to all the political shows. Somehow she knew the secret to living a long a fruitful life before anyone else; Louise was into vitamins and eating healthy long before it was in vogue.
A handsome boy named Crescent would win her heart; Louise would be his queen. Before his passing in 1987 they’d be blessed by two daughters, Crystal Gallagher (Bill) and Robyn Lyman (Bob); her later years found her biggest obsession, grandchildren, Colleen Drach (Richard), Bobby Lyman and Derek Lyman; of course they took a back seat once the Crown Prince, great-grandson Ricky, arrived.
