    My deepest heartfelt sympathy and prayers for all of the Long family. Bryon was a great friend and shared a lot of laughs. I am blessed to have had him in my life and share the joy that came with having him around. RIP Bryon See you when I get there

  2. Tabatha West, Harrisburg, AR says

    Bryon was one of the few people who I could depend on for anything and everything. He had a way to make even the darkest of days as bright as they possibly could. No matter what, he was true to the end. He was everything that anyone could ever hope for as a friend, a shoulder to cry on and most importantly a person. A person whom can never be replaced in my life or heart. I only wish we could have had more time together. I Love You Bryon and won't ever stop. I'm sorry that I never took the chance to tell you when I had it, but somehow I think you knew. To the Long Family, I am deeply Sorry for such a Great Loss. You will Truly be Missed Bryon! May God be with you!

  3. Marissa, Harrisburg, AR says

    Bryon was one of the most entertaining people I have ever met. He had a jokes and he could tell a good joke although sometimes I didn't get it at first he would always explain why the joke was funny and then he would say, "Marissa you know the joke isn't as funny if you have to explain it." and then he would laugh. We were very lucky to have had Bryon in our lives. He was a good person on the inside where it counts.He will be greatly missed and I extend to the family my deepest sympathy for their loss.

  4. Tabitha Greenway, Harrisburg, AR says

    Bryon And I we're very close, he was one of my "Best Friends"-EVER.I loved him very deeply. He was never at a loss for words, he had a gift for making people smile, always having something funny to say. The world seems a little dimmer so far without him. He is already very sorely missed. Bryon I love you and I always will!!!

  6. Carla (Caldwell) Ward, West Memphis, AR says

    I am a niece to Bryon, he was one of many I enjoyed being around with when we would come home on vacations when we were little kids. It saddens me to hear of his death at such a young age and so quickly after his brother and newphew death.I was 18 months old when Eddie Long (my dad) married my mom (Glenda) and made me a part of this family. A family that accepted me as one of theirs. So may you, dad, and Jonathon rest in peace. Ya'll will be missed and will always have a special place in my heart.
