June 17 – What if Louise Corapi Rossi never got born on this day?

So what if back on June 17, 1927, Louise Corapi doesn’t get born in Hudson, NY? That means she doesn’t end up in Albany, NY working as a hairdresser at the conclusion of World War II, which means she never meets a Marine bomber navigator from Amsterdam, NY named Lou Rossi. If Louise and Lou don’t meet and end up getting married and living in Amsterdam, their third child, a girl named Rosemary never gets born, which means she doesn’t get mono during her first year at Cobleskill College and transfer to FMCC, which means she never meets her future husband.

If Rosemary and this guy don’t get hitched, they never have four kids of their own who are named Michela, Matthew, Michael and Marissa. No Matthew means he never gets to marry Jennifer which means they never have their three children, Mianna, Francesca or Vincent and no Michela means she never gets married to Aaron which means no Natalie, Bradley or Genevieve, whose middle name is Louise in honor of her great grandmother, who turns 88 years old today.

So the author of the Amsterdam Birthday Blog is taking this opportunity to wish his very special mother-in-law a very Happy Birthday, because without her, I’d be standing alone on that Naples, FL beach in the photo below, wondering what the hell I was doing there all by myself and why was that lady taking my picture! Love you Louise! Happy Birthday! I owe you everything!
