Well my sweet Grandma... the world has lost some of it's brightness without you in it.

Dear Barbara and Phillip and families.
We send our love and sympathy at the death of your Mother. Your Mother was so proud of you both and she loved you very much. Your love and concern for her also speaks of your love for her.
God Bless All of You.

Dear Aunt Zona,
You will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved you. Even though you would tell us not to be sad, and to go on and love one another unconditionally. Because that is the kind of person you are, the sweetest woman that I've ever had the privilege to know. Love you, Aunt Zona.
My deepest Sympathies to the entire Long family. I wish I had the right words, please just know how sorry I am for the loss of your mother and grandmother. Love to all of you.

I remember all the family reunions we attended years ago and I know we will meet again at the greatest reunion in heaven. You will be missed by all of us you left behind.

Well, Zona Arlene, I know you didn't want to leave your family, but I remember my brother told me you said, "When He calls, I'll be ready." You kept your faith throughtout your life when others of us stumbled. You held my hand and taught me to write when I was a little girl and you held my hand and helped me through my sister's funeral not long ago. Thank you for being you.
Phil & Bev -- I'm very sorry

Dearest Grandma........ I do not even know where to start, so many memories, conversations, daily bread passage's you sent to me which always was of course the right message to get me through. I will always get a a giggle thinking about all the silly things you have done. These memories will never fade. You will be with us all the time now just like you wanted. You will always carry on in my heart. TOODLE LOU!! Never goodbye! LOVE: PEANUT BUTTER!!

Grandma was one of the rare people who knew the meaning of unconditional love and practiced it daily. St. Peter gave you a free pass to Heaven...God's gain for sure! You are and always will be one of the strongest Women I was lucky to have in my life. Your inner and outer beauty will never be matched. Be at peace Grandma, I look forward to hugging you again someday.
Love, Jocelyn & Jim Gohagan

I will always love and miss you Grandma Zona, or should I say Shoot-a-Bean Grandma! You were so thoughtful, caring, kind, and generous. Your love for God has touched my heart and I've learned so much from you. I know you are in a better place and with your other loved ones now. Rest in Peace Grandma.
