My sincere sympathy in the passing of Hilda. I have such fond memories of her, Sol and Buzzy. Singing as a teen at the restaurant was a sweet memory. I remember her granddaughter following me around when I was singing. People thought she was my daughter. She was such a pretty little girl! May God give you peace.
