    Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Rev. B.T. Bishop who passed away last week at his residence. He was the pastor of First Baptist Elizabethtown for 52 years. He was well known throughout the country. He touched many lives and was an inspiration to everyone. He loved people and never met a stranger. He was a talker, jokester, loved being a pastor, a friend and an all in one guy.
