  1. Dear children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, you father and grandfather was an awesome man. He was my uncle for 68 yrs and I always enjoyed his tall tails and spinning yarns. I loved it when he played his juice harp and did his clogging dance. He and Glen used to come to Mom’s, his surviving sister, Shirley, house before the Long reunion and visit. It was always fun to listen to him tell his tails. Now Uncle Pat is with the love of his life, and your mother and grandmother, Aunt Totie. They’re doing their happy dance together and God is smiling. Sincerest sympathies from your cousin Debbie and family

  2. Neva and family,
    I was saddened to read of the passing of your Dad. Although we were never fortunate enough to meet him Phil and I both always wished that we could have. He was a man that Phil would have loved to have sat and talked with. Please accept our deepest sympathies and may you be comforted by your treasured memories of your Dad. Semper Fi! Mr. Long, may you RIP.

  3. So sorry to learn of my friends passing he was a fine man

  4. Dear Neva and family, mother, Bobby and I were saddened to learn of Pat’s passing. He was always smiling and so nice to everyone. I loved to talk to him and hear his Michigan accent. He will be greatly missed.

    Prayers for your family,
    Barbara and family

  5. Love and prayers to all the family. Uncle Junior was a great guy!
