SISTER SAINT-FLORENTIN OBITUARY

Everyone knew that Nazaire and Raoul Poulin had left for the Yukon. From Sister Saint-Florentin’s obituary, I discovered that Florence Poulin, the oldest sister to the Poulin brothers, urged some of her family to pray for the spiritual welfare of two of her brothers who had established themselves in the Yukon.

They could not, somehow, have lost their way,” she said with pride, “their blood is too generous.”
