Richard, I miss Ginny too. She and I were suitemates at DLA for a long time. I taught her inventory mgt and all of a sudden she was outdoing me! But I can see from her college education she was so smart. Jim and Rosalyn, I met you too and I am so so sorry. My husband John says Ginny made the most out of life and she really did.
A beautiful obituary, Richard, which conveys Ginny's kind and giving nature; and also told me of the many facets of Ginny's life I did not know.
She had an aura of warmth, gentleness of spirit, and serenity. Her smile was like a reassuring ray of sunshine. As a neighbor, I will miss encountering that smile--at a chance meeting on a early summer morn's walk, or at the pool between her laps, or at many other neighbor venues.
I am grateful for having known Ginny.
you two were wonderful together. May the beautiful memories you have of her give you strength in the days ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
love, your cousin, yvonne
I knew Ginny as a fellow Red Cross disaster volunteer. She was always willing to lend a helping hand, pitch in wherever needed. A lovely lady who will be remembered and missed.
I will remember... her silvery laugh. Her precision and refinement. Puzzles and board games at the holidays. How, later in life, she went adventuring: off to Egypt after 9/11, and finding true love.
As another cousin Grace was aunt to my mom, Carol Hinkelman who moved away, I didn't see her often in recent years and am thrilled to learn how many people she touched through her profession and volunteer work. But true love... so hopeful.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."
But I say unto you, they are inseparable.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
My condolences for the loss of Ginny. She was a faithful member of our Red Cross Disaster Action Team, and a wonderful lady. I counted her a friend and valued team member. She will be missed.
I pray the Lord brings comfort to all who will miss her.
Ginny was such a dependable volunteer with the Red Cross. She will be greatly missed. God Bless!
Ginny was a valuable asset to the Red Cross and a source of comfort to those she helped
I was a co-worker of Ginny's for more than 20 years. She was soft-spoken,friendly and kind and always had a smile for you. My deepest sympathy to her family. The loving memories you now have will forever keep Ginny in your hearts. God bless and keep you.
Ginny, you're a dear gentle soul and you are greatly missed. God's Peace, Debbie Economos
My deepest sympathies to you , Richard, and your family. Be gentle with yourselves!
I knew Ginny at Defense General Supply Center and St. Edward's Catholic Church. She was a gentle and kind person. My deepest sympathy to her family.
Ginny has been a part of my life since I was 10, I just can't imagine it without my dear forever friend. I weep for you. I love you Ginny.
I extend my deepest condolences to the family of Ginny Ehrstein Bourdon. I had known Ginny for many years and am grateful and blessed to have had her as a friend at the Defense Supply Center Richmond. Although we did not see each other often because of our work schedules, I would sometimes see her during her walks. Ginny had a beautiful and welcoming spirit. She was such a giving person to her family, friends, community, and animals. When she first told me that she had gotten married, we had seen each other on the day she was retiring and was planning to move to Virginia Beach. She was so excited. I remember laughing when she told me because I was so happy for her and believe our meeting that day was no coincidence. I have great memories meeting her for lunch at restaurants and going swimming with her for the very first time at the YMCA. She was a gracious lady, and I will always treasure my memories of her. I know that she is in Heaven singing with the Angels. God bless you, Richard.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
