I am terribly saddened to hear of Caroline's passing. She was a great friend to my late Mother, Jean Mishibinijima-Bisson when they worked together at the Native Centre. She was a pillar in the Native community of Toronto because of her work with the seniors. My prayers and condolences to her family.
