The Family of Bill Birum Mar 13 2011 12:00 AM

While it has been several years since I and my dad Ralph Birum traveled back to Union City to visit the Birum clan via Joe's children and their kids. I still remember the family on that visit and also going back as far as circa 1952, my first visit out of the state of Washington.  I am sorry to hear of Dick's passing and wish you comfort and healing in this time of grief.  We still reside in Washington State as Ralph was one of the few to venture out, there aren't many of us by that name in this area.  Please know that my thoughts are with you and your family at this time.
