    Dear Susan and Mike: I learned of Donnie's hospitalization on Friday and was so hopeful to hear he had come home recovered. But, life's challenges have no boundaries. I have fond memories of camping trips, hiking and exploration activities. Backyard BBQ's and Donnie's willingness to help others unconditionally. Please know, I'm sorry are words that express my sorrow. There are no terms that adequately describe loss and pain. My thoughts and concern are with you. Be strong and recover with positive memories.

    I only met Mr. Lang a few times, but I feel like I have known him a life time. You see, I have had the privilege to work with and get to know his son Michael. Michael has told me so many many warm and wonderful and fond memories about his Mom and Dad! I am so happy to have been able to be a part of these lives. Thank you. Remember to always rejoice within your positive memories.

    I always enjoyed seeing and helping Don at Carolina Coast Harley Davidson. He was always smiling and a pleasure to work with. I am deeply saddened at his passing and wish all who knew him peace and love during this difficult time.
