My deepest condolences to all of the Long family. I was with Mike for 8 yrs n we had so many memories. He definitely was a humble man . Even tho we parted ways my love for him continued on n always will. I loved watching Ohio State games with him going to flee markets , out to eat , n just sitting around telling stories. You may rest now n not be in pain . He'll surely be missed by many. R. I. H. Mike Long. All my love ❤❤❤
