Your love and friendship over many years is a priceless gift to me and I will never forget you.
You are now with your Lord and Saviour and also with your beloved husband Arnold, and for that I rejoice.
When I think of all the short excursions we did, I think of our trip to Applebee’s in Sault Michigan for your 100th birthday. I also think of our trip to St. Joseph Island for some pancakes and maple syrup at Gilbertson’s . Now you have the best journey ever.
Goodbye my friend for now. I will truly miss you.
Marie Long
