Dear Mom, I do miss our 8:30 calls every morning . You have been a great inspiration and great comfort to me. You were always there with a biblical verse to get me through the day. This is a great loss in my life. I will always love you and will always remember the many great times we spent together. My condolences to all of Janie's family and loved ones.

So sorry to hear this sudden news. Rev. Janie was always so kind and caring for so many. I met her when my mom passed away 6 years ago. She then made a huge dinner about a year after that and drove out several hours to be with my dad and family. Quite the southern hospitality. Gone but not forgotten ❤

To the family of Rev. Long.....Michael and I will always love and miss Reverend Long. She blessed our lives with her love for Jesus, Christian testimony, generosity and friendship. I know we will see her again and John and Janice when it's our turn to go Home to live forever in Heaven with Jesus, but in the meantime our hearts hurt cause we miss Rev. Long so much. Ill never forget you, Rev. Long, and the important role you played in Michael and my life.

Reverend Janie, we talked about going on a trip together someday. You are such a great friend. Your kindness to me and love can not be forgotten for the rest of my days here. When I was sick, you came over and brought hot soup. But, when I was well, you called on me to take me out to Olive Garden to buy me hot soup! You knew I was down on my fortune and you encouraged me to start a business to move up. You called me to minister with you in nursing homes and cable TV, playing my guitar, sing my songs and share my testimony of how I came to know Messiah Jesus. No one gives me that platform ever! We are good friends and sisters. You left without me though, went on The Trip without me...too quickly, too discreetly. You said that the only thing you had against me is that I did not come over enough. Now I say, the only thing I am sad about you is that you did not take that trip with me! But, now, you are free to move and have your being. You are in Righteous Bliss with your Lover of your soul! Jesus is that One Who you'll forever have Perfect Friendship and True Love with, Forevermore. HalleluiYah!!! Next time I see you Reversnd Janie, lets fly in Heaven and make our trip count. Do you suppose Jesus will come with? Of course He will. I love you, my friend, whose shoes I am unfit to wear. There is no one like you! Shalom Shalom...Keryn

May GOD comfort, strengthen and Bless Rev. Janie's Family in JESUS Name. I've known Janie since the Spring of 2009. She has given plenty of Godly counsel to Jo Atkinson & myself as we considered Marriage. We miss you and Love you Rev. Janie.
