Granted permission to get married.......
It was December 5, 1942 and a young couple was granted permission by the Catholic church to get married during the Christmas season because the young man was leaving in 7 days to Fort Devins as an enlisted army soldier. That couple were my parents, Mary Kathyrn Medeiros, daughter of Manuel C. Medeiros and the late Anna Medeiros to Edmund Joseph Pacheco, son of Virginia Camara Pacheco and Manuel R. Pacheco.
They met at a roller skating rink in East Providence and then worked together at the American Lace Company in Pawtucket, where my Dad worked in shipping and my Mom was a thread drawer. My mom's birthday was August 25, 1922 and my Dad's, March 27, 1921
