    When my mother, Lottie Long, passed away, Louie showed up at the funeral home. I was so surprised and he hugged me and said of course, that’s what we do. It touched my heart and made me realize what a great little town we grew up in at that time. Clarkshillian’s have a very strong connection through the miles and the years. Prayers to Marilyn and the rest of his family. I apologize, but due to my own medical issues, I will not be able to show his family the same respect.
