My Mama was the most amazing woman I know. She was so full of faith, happiness and joy. She loved her God, her husband and the rest of our family unconditionally. I always wanted to grow up to be just like Mama. I can only aspire to being the amazing woman she was! I miss you Mama, and I love you so much!

I only met Carrie a few times, but everytime I did, she was always "present" and smiling! Carrie seemed truly interested in whatever was going on and took the time to engage with me. I have to be honest, she reminded me of my sweet mom and knowing how much she loved the Lord, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren as well as music brings a smile to my face because that was exactly how I remember my mom. Thank you Carrie for sharing that memory with me when I met with you, even if only for a few times. I hope you "meet" my mom as you both are present with the Lord...I'm sure you will and you can brag on your kids while you're worshiping in song and praise!

If someone were to ask me who most influenced my life, my Mom, Carrie Long, would be at the top of the list. She taught me by her own example how to love my husband and children with words and actions; how to give of myself to others expecting nothing in return; how to make faith in Jesus Christ my number one priority; how to really live life – and I think, looking back over these past few months – how to die. Nearly every day over the last months of her life, we would visit via video chat (me in California, her in Texas). We would sing hymns of the church that were familiar to her, and though the words were difficult for her to follow, she never stopped trying. The last song we sang was “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”. The next day she had the great joy of doing just that face to face! I love you, Mama! I miss you every day, and I’m so grateful for the sure knowledge that I will see you again.

My dear, sweet, Grandma,

Road trips, porch swings and wind chimes, I credit you for my love of them. As a child, I remember driving eight hours from Louisiana to spend summers with you, I was always welcomed with wide open arms and miles of smiles. You always had goodies such as sweet tea, watermelon, and cookies -and although you'd cringe when I did it, you'd always allow me to dip mine in red kool-aid.

As a teenager, I had the privilege of calling your place my home, it was a familiar comfort during the bittersweet years of adolescence. You took great care of my tender heart. I loved sitting on the porch swing with you, talking, singing and laughing. And in the quiet moments between, we'd just sit and listen to the sporadic music of a multitude of wind chimes, often while holding hands.

Now, as an adult, I have my own front porch swing, a collection of wind chimes every bit as eclectic as yours and I take my four children on even longer road trips where I am ripped back in time with each mile. 'Til we see each other again, I'll cherish these precious memories along with the immeasurable amount of others you left me with.

Carrie was like a ray of sunshine every time she walked into a room. She had such a sweet spirit. We were very honored to know her.

Miss Carrie,
I didnt get to know you for very long but I am so incredibly happy to have met you. I'll always remember the first time you sat in my chair over a year ago, and we had no idea what you wanted. Diane and I talked it through and you just said okay to everything we said. You were just happy to get your hair out of your face. All the little stories you use to tell me, I'll cherish forever; even all the times you fell asleep in my chair. I'll always remember you. Thank you for coming into my life❤

I met Carrie back in 1987ish...when the bowling center first opened in Marble Falls. She was this cute little lady that showed up most weeks when I bowled on the same league as Johnny. It seemed like every time my team bowled against Johnny’s team, I struggled, and we got our butts kicked! Anyway, at the end of the season, Carrie presented me with this little guy. From that point forward, I was friends with the Long clan. Carrie always made this yankee feel welcome! Even though over the last several years my visits with Carrie became fewer, when I did get to visit with her, she made me feel welcome. I’ll miss those visits, and her big bright smile, and the sweet little laugh she had. Rest in well deserved peace my friend....you will be missed, but never forgotten!

Oh Ms. Long!! I was incredibly blessed and honored to be a small part of this extraordinary woman’s life! I had the pleasure of being one of her speech pathologists! She was such a great patient, always doing her “homework!” But what I enjoyed most was our candid talks- we’d talk about anything and everything! She always made me laugh and I looked forward to our visits every time! She loved her children and family dearly and loved looking through her family albums! She had such a great sense of humor and love for life and family! She was not just a patient, but became family and she forever left a mark on my heart and will be missed! ❤️💕

Gigi, I have so many wonderful memories of you that its hard to pick... but it makes me so thankful of all the memories that I do have with you! I feel its so rare to be close to your great grandparents, and I am so happy that I was able to see you all the time! And especially thankful to the people who made it possible for you to travel as much as you did.

One recent memory that I love is when we visited you this summer while you were recovering from an injury. We would all sit outside and look at the birds while Aiden was playing with his school bus in the fountains. He would periodically come over to try to sneak a cookie from you. You were always willing to comply and accept kisses as payment! He happily obliged. :) Gigi, you will be so missed, but I am so happy you had such an amazingly full life! And I am so thankful for all the time I felt I was apart of it. P.S., I attached one of my favorite photos! Love you so much!

I truly enjoyed getting to know Carrie over the past few years. I remember when Diane first introduced me to her when she had come to church with her that day. She loves hugs, loved to hold your hand, and was so fun loving and sweet! She adored children and animals and my littlest one, Levi, especially loved to visit with her. Carrie, you brought many smiles and warmed many hearts 💕! It is no doubt that you will be forever missed. May you Rest In Peace and dance forever at the feet of Jesus!
