I am so saddened by this news. Dr. was so instrumental in her help with my family. I can't express my apprreition for her attention to such serious events in my family life. I know that she will have in heaven, a good practice with Tom Lackey.
I just saw this when I googled Dr. Blain. I moved away from Chicago in 2010 but she provided wonderful care to me for many years prior to the move. So saddened to learn the news. I don't think I've even heard of another doctor like her. And a wonderful personality shined through, too.
I am so sorry to just find out about this. She was the best Dr that I ever had. She truly cared about her patients. I also for worked at Elmhurst Hosp many years and she was just a special person.
I am so sorry to have just heard of Dr. Blain's passing. She was my doctor my whole life, and was so caring and wonderful. Our hearts ache on this news. Our family prays for your family to have peace.
What a great loss for all who knew her. She's been my doctor for over 30 years. What a great, caring person. She can't be replaced.
As I am just hearing about this I am saddened. I worked for CMBY clinic back in 2010-2011. I have learned so much from Dr. Blain. I am sorry for hearing about this too late and I am sorry for your loss.
Having been a patient of Dr. Blain's for many years, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to Dr. Hamby and family. She will be missed by the medical community and the many patients she served with such dedication.
We are stunned to learn of Dr. Blain's passing away earlier this month. She was a fabulous MD, caring for our mother (Norma Kepner), and ourselves for over 40 years. She was a great listener and extremely thorough in her work! She will be greatly missed! Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dr. Hamby and his family, as well as the wonderful staff at CMBY Clinic!

Paul and Louella Janicki and family
We like so many were shocked and saddened by the news of Dr. Blain's passing. My mother ironically had surgery the day before Dr. Blain's passing and we were concerned that Dr. Blain didn't phone because she always did. When we had our checkup appointment, we were told of the shocking news. She was to my family like she was to so many of her patients, not only a Dr., but a friend who cared. She was a person you could go and talk openly with, you knew you were getting the best care - which is so rare nowadays. She was a Dr. who got to the root of the problem, not one that masked it. She helped my family thru so many ups and down, good times and trying times. She was always there for my mother which was always a good feeling knowing Mom had someone to talk with and understood everything she has gone through. She was a medical doctor, a therapist, a friend. You will truly be missed in so many way Dr. Blain. We are sorry we didn't find out sooner so that we could paid our last respects to you. Heaven gained another angel and I know all your patients will pray that you will be watching over each and every one of us. Rest in Peace Dr. Blain. A great sole gone way too soon.
You will be so missed Dr. Blain. We pray for your family.
Dr Blain, your death saddened me so much. You mAde such a difference for so many people. We heard it every day from the patients you referred to us. We will miss you dearly.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Blain. She was my doctor for more than forty years. She was not only my doctor but a good friend who did not just treat the body but the whole person. I will always remember her encouraging words and that big smile and hug. I pray that God will give you strength for those difficult days ahead. Love you.
Charlotte was the center of the family in so many ways and we feel lost without her.
We pray for all the members of her family who miss her dearly.

years ago. Always caring and loving to her patients and the nursing staff.

My most sincere sympathy to Dr. Blain's family. Dr. Blain was simply the best.
I was not expecting this news today as I went to the office to get a blood test. She meant the world to me. She was the perfect doctor, warm, heartfelt, knowledgeable, sense of humor and just the best bed side manner. I loved her. Have known her since 1979, when she diagnosed my first husband with cancer. She consoled him until the day he passed away. She will be so missed by all, especially her family. My deepest condolences to all of them.
Dear family and staff at CMBY Clinic
I was shocked & deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Blain. I will never forget all the help, support and compassion she gave to me, my mother and daughter during the past 40 plus years. She will be dearly missed. When I saw her last Monday at my visit, she said her mom was now a beautiful angel in heaven. Now there are two beautiful angels up in heaven. What a great friend and doctor she was, never to be forgotten.

Dr. Charlotte Blain was the kind of doctor everyone wants, caring,concerned, kind and especially treated me with respect and gave me all the time I needed. She will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to Dr. Charles Hamby and family.
I am so saddened today. In reading what so many others wrote I found myself thinking that could be me writing those words. I realized she was not only special to me but to everyone she touched. I am so sad for your loss Dr Hamby and all your family. I read so many people who were patients of hers almost from the beginning. I thought I was the only one. That just goes to show what a tremendous doctor she was, that all these patients stayed with the same doctor for over 40 something years as I have. We all felt like she was a true friend. I will think of her often and thank God that she was my doctor all those years.
For many many years Dr. Blain was an every day part of our family life. My dad, Frank Sullivan, worked for your mom for many years and my mom and all of us kids were her patients. She was a compassionate caring professional and a true friend to both my mom and dad. Our hearts are heavy tonite as we hear this sad news.

Dr. Blain was more than a doctor. She was part psychiatrist, part marriage counselor, part parent, and part friend. She always made you feel like that you were the most important thing in her life at that moment. She was unlike any dr I had before or will ever again. She saved my life in many ways and we all will miss her. She is surely with the Lord. Sincerely Annemarie Spencer Toedt

Dr. Blain had been my doctor for 33 years. I always looked forward to my appointments with her because I knew with the exceptional care she would get I would also get a few laughs. She always had a story or comment that had me laughing. I will deeply miss her. Caring, kind, understanging and non-judgemental are just a few words that come to mind when thinking of her. She was an angel. I'm privileged to have been her patient and I hope I can say friend. To her family I extend my sympathy.
Dr Blain has been my doctor all of my life, from time of birth up until just a few months ago when I last saw her. Her care has forever changed me.

Dr. Blain I can not believe this of your passing, it was an absolute honor working for you, and I've thought about all the fun times that we had at work, you were a tough cookie but a teddy bear at heart, a caring soul. I will never forget you..Dr Hamby, I am so sorry for your loss, nothing is quit like the love of a mother, my prayers are out there for you, Beth Ann and your children...
There are some in your life that you are lucky enough to know. Dr. Blain was one of them. She was an extraordinary person and exceptional physician. She had a passion for her profession and was a constant advocate for her patients. Her selfless caring extended far beyond a doctor patient relationship and into a lifelong friend. After caring for our family for 40 years, she healed, saved and extended the lives of our family through generations. She was one of a kind and will be missed by so many. Thank you Dr. Blain; may god bless you like you have blessed us.
