Treasure Chest Thursday: A Celebration of Life - Part II

Treasure Chest Thursday is a daily blogging prompt from GeneaBloggers - the genealogy community's resource for blogging.

This week I am presenting a continuation of last week's Treasure Chest Thursday: A Celebration of Life - Part I

Born on 11 March, 1944 in Chelmsford, MA, Pauline Gail Maille was the daughter of Paul Maille (Cuthbert, Rose Therrien) and Rita Moran (John, Yvonne Ferron). She married my father, Jerome Charles Robillard (Joseph, Louise Esther Wright) on 13 Nov., 1965, at Sacred Heart Church in Lowell. Friday, November 5th will be the 28th anniversary of her death.

MY FIRST TOOTH
Pauline Gail
Jan 18, 1945
Gail
Gail was in her stroller this morning when, Patsy wanted a drink of water and said the baby wanted one too. So I gave Gail a drink and heard a noise. Sure enough it was a tooth. I thought she would never have one. We all had to feel it. I called Irene + Ma to tell them. Now I owe Gail a dollar.
NOTES
We are going to call the baby "Gail"
She looks like her brother. In fact
they look alike so much that they could be twins.
Gail was very red when born. But she's getting Prettier everyday. She had the longest eye lases in the nursery. Her eye lacher are beautiful She is the best baby yet, sleep all the time. Patsy and Chickie just love her and thats not mentioning her father. I guess that when she get big she'll look like him. At 9mo's Gail is still very good and she has the most beautiful eyes yet. But she is kind of slow
