A few years ago, I got possession of an old autograph book probably from the 1930s. This book belonged to a Brooklyn girl named Wilda. After much research I learned it belonged to Wilda Spinks. I mentioned it to the late Florence Gardner, who told me she kept in contact with Wilda and through Florence I got Wilda’s address. I packaged up the autograph book along with a note and shipped it off to her. A few weeks later, I received a wonderful note from Wilda thanking me for taking the time to send her this long lost treasure. I still have her note and will always keep it. Though I have never met Wilda, I was very saddened to see she had passed away and it made me remember the story of the lost autograph book, a memory that I will always treasure. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to her family at this time.

Rollie, Nancy and Mark,
I was sorry to hear of Wilda’s passing. I do not remember her, but remember your Mom talking about her and my Mom always had fond things to say. Please take comfort in the company of family and friends at this difficult time.
