And I hope that continues to inspire yhe people left behind so they aren’t afraid to live unconditionally and be themselves regardless of what others say or think. We know you are always watching and will be keeping an eye on everyone from a very high vantage point. All my love.

    Some of my fondest childhood memories were spent in the basement at the Bishops in the ‘80s. Mrs Bishop was always so sweet and good natured to us kids. I’m sad for Brandon and his sisters (as well as the extended family), but a treensy piece of her lives in me and I will hold her dearly. All of my love to all of you.

    Mrs. Bishop was a wonderful neighbor to our family, and I’m pretty sure we never returned all of the butter and eggs we borrowed from her! I’ll always remember her for her easy laugh and quick smile and for forgiving countless shenanigans. She’ll be missed dearly. Thanks for the warm childhood memories, Mrs. Bishop. All my love to the family.

    Thank you Mrs. Bishop for letting me hang out in your home visiting your son. You had a perpetual smile that was nice to see. I witnessed the love & caring you had for Brandon. Rest in peace.
