A woman who shares her birthday with Jo Cox - who would have been 42 on Wednesday this week - has urged others to raise a glass in her memory.
Sarah Unthank-Hudson, from Mirfield, wants people to pause and reflect on the life of Mrs Cox and the pensioner who tried to save her, former miner Bernard Kenny, who coincidentally turns 78 on the same day.
Mr Kenny was stabbed in the stomach as he went to the aid of Mrs Cox when she was shot and stabbed in Birstall on Thursday last week.
Sarah said she would like to launch a social media campaign to encourage people to raise a glass in honour of Mr Kenny's bravery and Mrs Cox's contribution to society as an MP and a mother.
"What has happened has made me realise that life is so precious. Jo Cox went to work that day; she kissed her children goodbye but did not come home."
Sarah, who works as a travel agent in Leeds, said her own health problems had made her reflect on life and the things that are important.
She recently suffered a brain aneurysm which required surgery. And later this year is due to undergo a double mastectomy as a preventative measure against the threat of cancer posed by a faulty gene.
"I have inherited the gene so I am having preventative surgery in August. My dad, Alan, had breast cancer and I then tested positive for the gene."
The experiences have made her reflect on the life of Mrs Cox and the bravery of Mr Kenny.
"I share my birthday with two special people from Yorkshire - Mrs Cox and the man who tried to save her. Everybody should get together as a condolence for Mrs Cox and for Bernard's bravery.
"Raising a glass is a way of showing condolences for Jo and respect for Bernard."
Sarah, who is married to Robert, said she had visited Birstall to lay flowers but wanted to do something else to show her respect for two remarkable people.
