We send our sympathy, Cathy. We were very fond of Gary and were blessed to have that time with him... and you. You were a remarkable caregiver and wife. He is now at peace. May God bring you comfort during this difficult time. With love and sympathy from Peter and Connie and all of us at Lena's.

To all of the Bishop family we send our sincerest sympathies for your loss of Gary. Living in the home where he spent his youth, then next door to Jean & Ed after they built their new home, plus having Gary's siblings and cousins for our girls' babysitters & friends, and now having Marty and Julie residing there, gives us a special appreciation for your whole generous and talented family. We know recent years were difficult for Gary, his wife, son, mom, and all of you, as his life changed slowly, but steadily. We hope that Gary is with his dad, uncles and aunts in a more joyous place now. Take comfort in the memories of happier times together. Love, Sue and Dan
