Memories Timeline


  1. We have known Clifford and Nimal Bishop for 25 years.Cliiford was a gentle and kind person. He loved Oriental food and culture and lived for several years in Sri Lanka. He had a very good sense of humour. We are going to miss him. May he rest in peace.

  2. My deep condolences goes out to the Bishop family. The scripture at Rev 21:4 always helps to cheer me up and there it says that he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will b no more. Jehovah promises this in the coming new world a paradise where there will be no sickness or pain.

  3. Thanks to Uncle Lee I have 5 awesome cousins and (I don’t even know how many) terrific ‘once- and twice-removed’ cousins…thus this world is a better place because he was here. Sending love & prayers to all of you.

  4. Have some very fond memories of Easter Egg Hunts in the field at the old Government Road and learning how to ‘present arms’ in the little white house on Bull Mountain Road. Would be there to give my regards if we were not out of town until the 11th. My sympathies to the cousins and all who cared.

  5. Calvin, Was so sorry that your Father has passed away. I remember him when we all went to Long Shoals
    Bapist Church, and Valley Springs School. May God be with you and your family as you go forward in the days to come.

  6. I am very grateful and thankful for this man. Without him I would not have Zeb,or this beautiful home or this amazing child. I would not have Punk,(Jessica)or Little Man, Baby John!)
