Mable and Alton Long celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary Aug. 7.
The Longs have lived in Birmingham since 1960 and are active members of Palisades Church of Christ.
They love spending time with family and have shown, through their sacrifices and many acts of kindness, a wonderful example of unconditional love.
A luncheon honoring the couple was hosted by their two daughters and sons-in-law, Linda and Charlie Stewart and Susan and Greg Womack, at The Arbors Apartments at St. Martin’s in the Pines on Aug. 3.
All of the Long’s five grandchildren, including Charlie Stewart (Malia), Jay Stewart (Brooke), Susan Murdock (Gil), Anne Womack and Will Sanford, and Abby Nevins (Holder), and eight great-grandchildren–Emma Stewart, Davis Stewart, Maggie Stewart, Addison Stewart, Julia Stewart, Baker Stewart, Stewart Anne Murdock and Coe Murdock–were there to celebrate with the couple.
Family members expressed their love and gratitude to the couple with cards and toasts of fond memories of days spent with “Meme and Pawpaw.”
