Not sure what to say?

to the bisher family our condolences from william a bishers, family

My condolences and best wishes to Jaime, Verónica and the entire Bisher family. Un abrazo,

This comes a bit late, but ... I worked all over the country for US Fish & Wildlife and always tried to get hold of a copy of the AJC soley for Mr. Bisher's columns. Condolences to the family and I imagine heaven is just a bit more pleasant these days.



To Lynda and the rest of the family: please accept my deepest sympathies. Romans15:33.

Hi Lynda and family: I miss Furman and wrote this piece about him. My prayers are with you. Love, Michelle Hiskey


The family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

To the entire Bisher family, I would desire that todays sports writers and announcers bring as much to the fans as your husband and dad. He made me a better person for his Thanksgiving Day column. We treasure his memory. I'm Thankful for Furman Bisher.
