Frau Long's obituary was published this morning in the Greenville News as well as on the Mackey Mortuary site. I'm sorry that there was no picture to share with you. Since both obits read the same, I will post it below. On the Mackey site, there is the possibility to sign the guest book with your thoughts about Edith for her family to read.
