Words are never adequate in moments like these, but we are all grieving after our Communications Center Supervisor’s 1-year-old son passed away this morning in a tragic accident. Our department is close, and this event affects us all. However, our grief and confusion are small compared to what the Long family must be feeling. Our hearts and prayers go out to them.
Her husband proudly serves as a Wilson County Sheriff’s Deputy, and we stand alongside the Wilson County Sheriffs Office in support of the Long family during this difficult time.
Many in the community have heard the news and are asking how they can help the family. A memorial donation fund has been established at Wilson Bank & Trust, and all locations are able to accept donations under the name of Deputy Long.
