Gil and Linda always made their customers feel at home. Our family looked forward to picking out our garden plants every year. One year we entered the pickle in a bottle contest . It was a lot of fun. I have fond memories of them. Prayers to the family

I started working at hill haven during high school and had the pleasure of knowing Gil and all the wonderful people in his life. I’m so grateful for Gil as I would have never had the opportunity to get to know so many lovely people if he and Linda had not opened up hill haven. Gil was always so kind to me, and I’m lucky to have met him. I know he will be missed very much.

I don't have a specific memory. I have always had an admiration for the many areas of interest Gilbert had. He was amazing and had such a love for all.
