Well tomorrow is the funeral for my grandmother Leatha Long. Above is one of the segments from the memorial DVD I made for the service. My brother is going to give the eulogy and is planning on using the different parts of the video throughout his speech. I have been pretty focused on the project which has given me an opportunity to not really think about what is going on. I am sure tomorrow's service will be beautiful.

Leatha A. Ellison Long 1916 - 2008 Visitation will be Sunday from 4-8 p.m., and services will be held on Monday, September 8, 10:00 a.m., at Greenlawn Mortuary Chapel, 3700 River Blvd. for our beloved mother, Leatha Ellison Long, born January 6, 1916, and passed away at home on September 1, 2008. Leatha was preceded in death by her husbands, Robert B. Ellison, and Loyd C. Long; son, Jerry (Randy) Ellison; parents, Wesley and Lorena Williams; brothers, W.E., Ed and Lawrence Williams; sisters, Lola Gentry and Ruth Northam. She is survived by her sister, Neva Lou King; daughter and son-in-law, Verna and John Colter; son and daughter-in-law, Danny and Donna Ellison; six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, plus many extended family members and friends. She was deeply loved and will be remembered with great affection by all who knew her.
