Louis Armstrong was a wonderful man, many people thought. He played songs you can groove to. He never gave up in playing the trumpet. Every time he messed up he just kept going.(non stop) Louis did have a difficult childhood though. His father was a factory worker and abandoned the family soon after Louis birth, his mother, who often turned to prostitution, frequently left him with his maternal grandmother, so his grandmother raised him. He later on had a secret child that nobody new about. Sharon Preston who is 57 years of age claims that she is the daughter of Louis Armstrong. Sharon is a marketing with more than a passing likeness to Armstrong. She is living great with her husband and no children.
