Lou and Liz, So sorry to hear of Gilda's passing. When she was still able she would call me sometimes just to catch up and share memories of my mom and all the ladies in the group. I have many good memories of her and Alex with my parents or at parties. She was a lovely woman and I know she is at peace and reunited with Alex.
