I know I am very late in sending this. Living far from home, I tend to miss this kind of news.
I was so sorry to hear that Rev. Tom had passed. I will always remember his sense of humor, and his wonderful heart.
Your family is in my heart and prayers.

Your Dad gave wise spiritual leadership both to First Fairlea and to Fairlawn. He also was instrumental in the founding of the WVCSB. His strong leadership skills still influence areas he served. God used him and your Mother greatly in this hill country called WV. We were and continue to be Blessed to have had them in our lives. Fred & Deanna Morgan.

Stuart, Andrew and Lang family,
I was saddened to hear of Pastor Tom's passing. He was one of the finest men of God and I had the pleasure of him leading me to Christ at an early age. He served Oconee Heights where my family and I were members for years. He was an amazing preacher and I consider myself blessed to have had him be a part of my childhood. I know that he was missing Ms. Thelma and God has now brought them back together. I know that he walks the streets of gold, praising the Savior whom he served faithfully here on earth. I pray for God's perfect peace for the family.

I cannot find the words to express how much I admire Brother Lang. When he was a young man and first started his association with Oconee Heights Baptist Church he spent time with my grandparents, Annie and Knevel Fields and my parents, Sedelia and K. J. Fields. He often ate supper with them and they enjoyed the fellowship together on many occasions. So many of my family members attended Oconee Heights Baptist Church during the years that he has Pastor there. He preached the funeral of my grandfather, grandmother, aunt,uncle, great aunt, and my father. He helped me personally get through a spiritual issue I had after the death of my father- when my grandmother died I called Pastor Lang and we talked at length. He helped me to have peace with what was weighing heavy on my heart for many years. What a legacy he leaves behind - the many people who accepted Christ as a result of Pastor Lang--- God be with you all during this time - The loss of one parent is difficult but both so close together is both sad and sweet as they were not separated very long. Oh how many times they must have felt the words of that wonderful song --- There is coming a day,
When no heart aches shall come,
No more clouds in the sky,
No more tears to dim the eye,
All is peace forever more,
On that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be.



What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.



There'll be no sorrow there,
No more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain,
No more parting over there;
And forever I will be,
With the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
