After the marriage of our youngest sister [Marie Philomene married Joseph Veilleux on Jan 31, 1905], Mr. Joseph Veilleux had been previously married to another Poulin sister, Marie Eugenie Almera in 1898.

Almeria died in September 1903], Florence made a Novena that did have results unlike any previous Novenas.  She was aged for her 35 years [1904].  For a long time, she had not opened a book and it was no longer easy to start over her studies.  She would not be able to teach; but perhaps as an aged person, she would be accepted into a religious life; it was all that she desired.
