    To the entire Bishop family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know this is a very sad and difficult time for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I have such fond memories of Ted from my younger years. I remember his great smile, big voice, bigger laugh, mischievous look as he was about to throw one of the boys in the pool, willingness to help anyone, amazing work ethic and his unending and never failing love for his family. You were all so fortunate to have a man like this in your lives.
    Many hugs, Cindy Reed Hunter

    Hi Elaine + family,

    We were so sorry to hear of Teds passing. We have some really great memories of you and Ted. We were at the Butterfly Friday night and we were talking about the good times we had there with you and Ted. Sue Molay was there and remembered us, and ask about the couple who was always with us. We will always have those great times to remember. If you get to Beloit give us a call. You have our sympathy.
    Matt + Toni
