Catherine Riley Gallagher died in October 1926. The shock of her death cast a pall on the Gallagher and Riley families. Christmas and New Year’s Eve 1926 were barely celebrated. 1927 dawned on a low note.

263 – Joy and Tragedy
1926 delivered work, success, theft, birth, and death. Joy and Tragedy. Was it a “normal” year? Doesn’t that happen every year?
The ripple effect metaphor helps us remember that the closer we are to the center of the ripple splash, the more the events impact us. The ripple splashed very near in 1926.
262 – Mid-1920s
The mid-20s – 1924 and 1925 – were full of everyday family events; dinners, visits, bridge parties, picnics, and work.
261 – 1923 Was Busy
1922 had been a perfect year. Tom and Catherine Gallagher’s wedding was the highlight. Now they were back to everyday life in Sedalia.
