Dennis, Claudia, Claude, Kathi, and Lisa,
Don and I are very sorry. Your mother was a beautiful woman who epitomized charm and grace. I will always remember the wonderful decorated cakes she made for our school fundraisers and the Lord's Acre Festivals. The entire Long family was very touched when she gave Mom and Dad a decorated cake for our family 's celebration of their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Our community was a more beautiful place because of your mother, and she will be missed.
Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Jill Long Thompson

Kathi, Lisa and Claude, I was your Mom's neighbor on Oak St. We had a lot of laughs and shared our life stories with each other. She was a great cook and fed me many times. I know she will be missed, she sure loved all you kids with all her heart.
May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will walk beside you in your journey of grief.
Randy Grimes, Brett Gerber and the Staff of DeMoney-Grimes Funeral Home
