“Sugar” was happiest when she was welcoming family and friends to the Long home for food, fun, fellowship, and a glass of cold sweet iced tea. She always had a listening ear to those who needed it along with a hug, smile, and laughter. She called her home “The Long’s Hotel” always full of hospitality for all who visited.
“Sugar and Daddy June” left a legacy of nine beautiful grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren to cherish along with several wonderful devoted nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends of the family to love and adore.
