A Dear Saint Gone Home...

Today we mourn the loss, but celebrate the victory of a dear woman whom I've known for my entire life - Betty Carolyn Lawson Long.  Betty is the wife of my mom's first cousin, Bobby Long, and the mother of Mark, John, and Matt Long.  She was one of the absolute sweetest people I have ever known in my life, and I will miss her hugs and warm smiles.  She has suffered terribly over the years in body; however, her spirit has always remained strong as she managed through life with patience and without complaint.  My heart is with Bobby and the boys today as well as the rest of the family.

The photo with this post is of Bobby and Betty.  I had the priveledge of shooting their family photos a couple of years ago.  She was so proud of her beautiful family, and they all love their mother/grandmother very, very much!
