The 71-year-old Steve released a statement on the matter.
“Hilary was a kind, caring and beautiful person,” he said. “Her mother, sisters, brothers and I are devastated by her passing. It leaves a hole in our hearts and our lives. She, like so many others, bravely fought the disease of depression for as long as she could. We love and will miss her dearly. Our family is utterly heartbroken and is mourning its tragic loss. We ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
According to TMZ, Hilary attempted suicide this past weekend and eventually passed away in a hospital on Monday.
