    Ms. Bishop was someone special. She loved watching basketball and would attend every game. She had a heart of service. She was an amazing cook and would bring meals to the Trumann Police Department, we ate like kings! She will be sorely missed.

    Even though we've not been in touch as much as I would have liked you have been in my thoughts. You and uncle Billy were always kind and thoughtful to me when I was younger and I always enjoyed the times I spent at your house visiting Robin and Tammy. My mom thought the world of you.
