I was reading Aunt Ginny's guest book today and wanted to add our thoughts. Aunt Ginny was awesome! She was all about family. Our wonderful cousin Maeva got it right -Aunt Ginny was a special ray of sunshine in our lives and brought us joy. We all loved her very much and will forever miss her. Steve and Leslie, please know we are thinking of you. Your Mom raised a wonderful family, and we are proud to say you are terrific cousins. Love from the Dumoulins - John, Jean, Jack and James.

Aunt Ginny was a shining example of how to live your life with grace and dignity. She never lost her childlike wonder or enthusiasm, and always chose to see the glass half full. She welcomed me into her heart and home, and treated me like one of her children. A lesson that's come in handy for me over the years. I will forever miss...and love her.

Even though she had more than her share of pain and heartache, she kept a very positive attitude. She was always a pleasure to be around, smiling and showing a happy face. She was like a ray of sunshine. I will miss her dearly, but I feel that she is finally out of pain. I love you Aunt Ginny and I know that God has welcomed you home.

Steve and Leslie,
Words seem so inadequate at times like this, but take comfort in knowing that you Mom has only passed from here to a much better place. Where I must think, she has already found Tammy. And in that everlasting reunion, surely they both are sharing much joy. Take care and see you soon, Jeff

I have known Ginny since high school. I was on JV cheerleading squad and she was on varsity. The girls on the Varsity squad made me their honorary mascot so I spent a lot of time with Ginny. We remained friends for many years. I will miss her a great deal..... Sharon Hollister.
