When asked how they met Tommy responded the first time I saw Louiese I threw rocks at her and Louiese states she married him for spite.Louiese says to stay married for 67 years all you have to do is “Love Him.” Tommy says, “If you get upset you have to apologize and get over it.” It takes two people working together to make 67 years of marriage.
