Virginia "Ginie" Cassin recently moved up to Minnesota to be closer to family after a lifetime in Oak Park. Recently she fell and broke her leg. Her daughter, Sheila MacLaughlin, writes, "At this time, Mom is in a rehab facility just minutes from where her son, Pat, and I live. She needs to regain strength in her broken leg as well as her upper arms. The PT and OT staff are wonderful, compassionate women who are getting to know Ginie well, and are witnessing that 'get it done' attitude. Of course, there are hard moments and joyful moments. But Mom remains her positive self, bringing good humor and inspiration to the lives around her."

Sheila says Ginie would love to hear from her Oak Park friends. Mail can be addressed to her apartment: 

8182 Excelsior Road, Apt. 318
