My Story

~ In Loving Memory of Joseph S. Birrell ~

 "He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist." - St. Francis of Assisi

 

"He was an artist who saw the world through the canvas of his heart, not always as it was, but as it should be. This inevitably made him a cynic. However his was a cynicism not born of arrogance, but frustrated idealism. Most significantly of all however, he was simply a good man." - from my eulogy


We love you Dad...you will live in our hearts until we are together once more.
