Gil was a loyal friend and true to my mother Rita Edmondson and I for decades. My mother worked with Gil at both locations of W & I hospital. For many many years. She was a loving and caring friend to me after my mother’s tragic death in 2014. I will miss Gil. She is in a better place right now with Bruno and my mother. God Bless you Gil. I will never forget you being a true and loyal friend to my mother and me. I love you very much. Rayna Ruggieri(daughter of Rita Edmondson)
Gil was a ray of sunshine at Women & Infants. She was a wonderful co-worker. Her laugh was fabulous. What a lovely person, she will be missed.
