Phyllis, it is with heartfelt sympathy to learn of your loss. I enjoyed patronizing your and Elton's business at Williams for many years and getting to know the both of you and felt a tremendous loss myself when you two decided to close your business. You both were such wonderful, Christian assets to our community ! It is my prayer that Our precious Heavenly Father will provide you and your family with the comfort and strength to sustain you now and in the future. Hold onto your faith even stronger and remember Jesus will never leave you. I love you dearly and I will be lifting you all up in my prayers. Elton will be remembered as a caring Godly friend .

I remember Mr. Long, he was a very kind and sweet man and had a smile for everyone that came into his store. So sorry for your loss, and prayers for the family.
