Understanding brave decision

To the Editor

I would like to commend staff reporter Sue Tiffin for her compassionate and beautifully written report about Bob and Noreen Bishop.
I write as a long-time friend of them both. The word “shock” is often over used but it best describes how I felt after receiving the news of their parting.
The next feeling I had was a lingering memory when Marie and I visited them last summer. After saying our goodbyes we both felt the dignity of two very special human beings. We thank the Echo and the family for helping us to understand and accept their brave decision.
