I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Bishop and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

I miss my brother, George, every day and can't believe that 46 years have gone by without him. He was my older brother and, to me, he was always larger than life! He lived to fly and died doing what he loved. He had an infectious personality and was always up for a good time! George was a fabulous dancer too! Now, I dance with him in my dreams!
His family meant everything to him and I know he would be so proud of his children!
I remember at his memorial service the priest whispered in my ear, "don't worry….you will see him again!" I'm counting on that!!!

George was a good and decent human being, good friend, devoted husband, loving father~~a most giving human being. I flew with him often and always felt safe. I was his wife Joan Stelben Bishop's first cousin. While she lay dying some years after George's untimely death, NYC police helicopters and their flyers visited her at the hospital.

George Bishop was my father. I was only 10 months old when he was killed, 46 years ago today, and my brother was 2 1/2 at the time. We were blessed over the years to have so many people supportive of us, the widows and children of our fallen policemen. My father was an Air Force mechanic before flying with the New York City aviation unit. I eventually married a Navy pilot, and my Mom was understandably concerned at first. Today, I am so proud to have a son now at the Air Force Academy, carrying on my Dad's proud tradition. Not having known my Dad, I appreciate the stories shared on this site and in our family about my Dad, that keep his memory alive.

I worked with George Bishop while he was assigned to the 17th Pct., prior to his assignment to the air wing. He was a good guy and a good officer. He really wanted to fly, now he flies with the angels. RIP George.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 44th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. How hard the wait must have been for your families in waiting for your bodies to be recovered.

Rest In Peace
