Not sure what to say?

Vance, it has been a year now since you left us. I still talk about you with people who didn't know you, but wish they did. You missed out on the chance of getting old....knowing you as I did I feel that the life you lived was more exciting than those who will live the next twenty years. To Chris, Mr and Mrs Longley, brother and sisters Vance was one of a kind. peace and Love, Kevin

I remember Vance and my brother Kevin taking me for rides on their motorcycles. Vance had a blue Honda CL-90 and Kevin a black Yamaha 100 they were both 14 and had motorcycle drivers licenses. Those were great times. The funniest story I ever heard involved Vance and Jeff Russo. Vance had a blue 1967 Corvette and Jeff had a silver 1968 Corvette, they were on a snowy road in Utah and they crashed into each other, the only two Corvettes in the area. Vance took me for fastest ride in a car I had...

My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Longley family. I grew up with everyone, having dated and marrying Sue Longley, Vance's cousin. Always a smile with open arms were extended to me. I will always love this family as if they were my own. We will miss you Vance!!

Vance Longley, one of my dearest friends. He was one of 5 or 6 great friends throughout the wonder years of life. From his Honda CL90 motorbike to a 1967 Corvette with a 500 horsepower 427 cubic inch engine, Vance loved his machines. When Vance was younger he was a great swimmer, won all types of medals and trophies. His mother and father were the best. We could always count on Mrs Longley to feed us after school and Mr Longley to take us fishing on the Chris-Craft on Lake Mead or go flying...

To the Longley family, I am very sorry to read of Vance's death. I still have great memories of all of us kids who grew up on 9th Street. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Vance's family.

Chris, I am so sorry to hear of your husbands death. Love and prayers, Carol Stewart

So sorry to hear about your loss. I enjoyed knowing him and was in awe of the things he did. Like build a small helicopter in the garage in Henderson. What a wonderful person he was.
