We are so sad to hear of the loss of Cousin Polly. She had such a joyful Spirit, growing up on Tremont St in Meriden, Conn. We had fun all living in the duplex house at # 36 and # 38. Two Boulais girls married 2 Desrochers boys, and between them resulted 7 children .
Pauline was the oldest, then my sister Dolores, Norman, then Bob, and me (Eleanor), Little Florette, and finally Frannie. We shared so much ..... our faith nurtured at St Laurent School, ice and roller skating, and childhood pranks. Our lives were richer because of our many years on Tremont St. Polly even visited us in Maine with Bob , Barbara, and Florette. She was loved in her lifetime, and thrived in that love. How she will be missed. Please feel our hugs, Dear Family!

Loving you,

Eleanor and Paul

It was sad to hear about your Mom's passing. She had a big heart and smile for such a tiny woman. Her faith in God strengthened her and allowed her to find the good in everyone and everything. Our deepest sympathies, her Connecticut cousins-Gerald and Linda Raby.
