I came home to very sad news today:
Lois was Elisabeth and Peter’s babysitter for a period of about four years when we lived in LA in the mid-80’s. I was working at Disney when LoLo joined our family and later, after Peter was born, I had my own educational software design company that I ran from home. During those years LoLo came to our home each day and loved my children to pieces.
Lois adored Elisabeth (known then, before she insisted on going by her middle name, as “Erin”) and Peter, and they adored her. Somehow she was able to clean my house from top to bottom while giving complete, doting attention to my children – cooking with them, doing art projects with them, reading to them, and holding them lovingly for hours on end… often while vacuuming or doing laundry.
Lolo was magical and she had a magical influence on my oldest two children during a period in their lives that they now barely remember, but that she touched profoundly.
Larry, her loving husband is so right: she WILL be missed.
