Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

Officer Bishop, you tirelessly and unselfishly put your life on the line for many years of dedicated service. Then on 9/11, you gave your all to serve your fellowmen and for it, suffered for many years. It is over now, and it is time to collect your reward, and it will be abundant. May our good Lord immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.
