    It has been a pleasure knowing such a wonderful loving lady and being part of your family through my daughter’s marriage. You always had a smile whenever I saw you. I knew you were wonderful from the first time I met you when you commented to me that I looked to young to have a daughter, my daughter’s age at the time, I loved you for that ever since. Gramma Longa you will be missed but our memories of you will always be with us. Rest in peace now. Love, Debi

    Frank and family,

    So very sorry to learn of your Mother’s passing. I met her through Dot Hartman. You were a WONDERFUL son to her and I’m sure that she appreciated all that you did for her. She will always be in your heart.

    Know that your entire family is in my prayers. Take care and God bless.

    Vera was a very wonderful person. I have only known her for a few short years, but she was a joy to be around. She will be missed

    Mary, Doug and entire Longa family. What a pleasure it has been sharing lifelong memories with you and Vera and Joe all these years. Your mom will be missed by so many and will always hold a special place in my heart being a close friend and neighbor to my mom and dad in old Brooklyn. So many wonderful times playing street kickball and horse in your driveway! Your mom was a special lady and she is resting finally in heaven. So glad I was able to share in the beautiful mass and service at Holy Cross today. Love you all!

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. I remember her always crocheting or knitting you sweaters and vests to wear with our lovely uniforms. She always was smiling or laughing when I saw her. She and your family will be remembered in my prayers. Love to all
