Mrs. Long was my first teacher--I was in kindergarden with Miriam. I don't think one ever forgets their first teacher but she was very special. I am so glad that I had her for a role model in my early years. She also was my first piano teacher--I can still see us setting at that piano--and remember the fresh newness of my first Schaum book.

For many years, Florence and I served on Iowa Grand Chapter's Educational Board, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships to aspiring clergy. She was a dedicated member and I enjoyed her contributions a great deal. May the Lord give you peace as you remember your loved one with warm memories.

When Asa was in 6th Grade at Central, Florence Long, with the true command and elegance of a life-long leader in her community, was the wonderful lady who gave her the certificate for her essay in Donnellson.

Sincerely, May Crowe, Joan Crowe, Asa Crowe, and Andrew Witter

Dear Miriam,
We send our heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Your parents were always the most pleasant people and so supportive of The Wooden Pig. We loved seeing them every week and all of our 'kids' enjoyed waiting on them. We missed them after we closed. May they rest in peace.
Angie & Tim Budnik
