To the Fins family, please accept my heart-felt condolences at the passing of your loved one, Ms. Caroline. I remember when she trained me in the Health Information Services field in 1994, then came to volunteer in my department at CAMHC when she retired.

ilene and family, much love to you all during this time of loss. I only meet your mother once or twice, but knew of her greatness through the love you have and have shared about her. I'm glad you were able to spend so much time with her, ilene. I'm sure she was glad too.
