    Both of my parents are deceased and both of Pat’s parents were deceased when we met you two and shared a cold night under our Mexican blankets. I do understand your loss of Myrtle. It is so very hard to lose a parent. Our only comfort is that they will be in a better place. I truly believe this. Thank you for keeping in touch. If there is anything I can do then please let me know.

    I have been blessed to know Jim and Myrtle Birch for a number of years through their son Tim. They have even opened up their home to me and made me welcome when I travelled to Calgary. This wonderful couple always showed the world what a loving couple should be like, and that marriage can ‘be done’ as it is taught us in the vows. Tim’s mother was everyone’s mother. God bless her, and her family.

    I have fond childhood memories of growing up and visiting in Mr and Mrs Birch’s (Jim and Myrtle’s) home — playing with my long time friend, their son Tim. I always felt welcome.
    It was always nice to see them on occasion when they came out to the coast to visit the members of their family they have out here.
    I know she’ll be missed. The ripples of her passing will be felt far — the strongest waves with those closest — but those who care are still in her pool of love.
