2 Condolences for John H. Lang

  • He was an amazing man with a great sense of humor who loved and guided his family. He will truly be missed but now he is with his son Glenn J. Lang. I will miss them both all the days of my life. Love always, JJ.

  • Although I never had the honor to meet this wonderful man my heart aches for all his family. Being a Navy veteran we, as a country, owe him a huge debt of gratitude and thank him for his service. May God’s loving arms envelope you, Mrs. Lang and give you peace, comfort, strength and love during this time of such great loss. To JJ and all the remainder of the family may God give you comfort, love and peace knowing you will one day see your father, father-in-law, grandfather and great- grandfather again one day in Heaven above. Peace be with you all. Go with God, He goes with you.
