Beth & Debbie, I was so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. She and your Dad were great band parents when I taught at Hidden Valley. She was a kind lady. Please accept my condolences.

Sylvia was a true professional. I worked with her at LG and she was always a force to be reckoned with, esp if you didn't do the job. It was a pleasure to know her. So sorry for your loss.
