Candlelight vigil at GMH for deaths

Posted: Updated:

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - A candlelight vigil will be held tonight in memory of Karen Kittle and Joaquin Crisostomo, who recently died at the Guam Memorial Hospital.  Their families are hosting the event hoping to bring attention to the concerns they have about their loved ones' passing.  GMH has said the deaths were not preventable and that both died from natural causes.

Family members believe otherwise. Those who plan to participate in the vigil are asked to bring flashlights or glow sticks and pictures of their loved ones.  They have been informed that they will not be able to have their vigil within 100 feet of the hospital entrance, due to concerns about the open flames.  It begins at seven o'clock.
