‘Farewell, my friend’
Camden says good-bye to Bishop Bell with Farewell Ride
Bell - Leaving Boykin
A horse-drawn carriage leaves Camden’s Boykin Park (above) shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday carrying the casket bearing Bishop Bell’s body. Between 100 and 150 people, perhaps as many as 200, gathered at the park, many of whom followed in their cars or on foot as part of a 'Farewell Ride' celebrating Bell's life. (Martin L. Cahn/CI)
Between 100 and 150 people, perhaps more, gathered at Camden’s Boykin Park on Wednesday at 11 a.m. to say good-bye to the late Bishop Thomas C. Bell, pastor of Cathedral of Praise Ministry, who passed away at the age of 59 on Sept. 27. They did so by accompanying his casket, carried in a two horse-drawn carriage, out of the park, along Campbell and Laurens streets and then down Broad Street all the way to Camden City Arena.
