 Charles and Sue Langley’s great grandson, September 17, 2018

Charles and Sue Langley’s great grandson Ridge, is needing every one to pray again. His mother was staying in SC with her family during Hurricane Florence. On 9-14 he was taken to a local hospital and doctors there decided that he needed to be in NC at UNC, where he has been so much recently because the doctors are very familiar with his case. The weather would not permit life flight until today. His mother was allowed to take life flight with him. They arrived this afternoon around 5pm. Thankful for a safe flight under current weather conditions. Please keep him in your prayers. Our deepest appreciation goes to our GWRRA family for their faithfulness in praying. Thank you, Charles and Sue Langley.

Paul Trahan, September 1, 2018

To All: Paul’s internment will be at 11 am on September 8 at the Lorraine Park Cemetery, 5608 Dogwood Rd, Baltimore MD  21207.  Preliminary instructions are to meet at the Sanctuary Mausoleum, straight up from the main entrance.   Kristen indicated to Judy that she would like the motorcycles to escort Paul’s ashes to the grave sight.  Not quite sure how it is going to work out yet.  I spoke with Phil Godwin, Paul’s life-long friend, about that and Phil said that it was only a short walk from the mausoleum to the grave sight.  So, perhaps there will not e a riding escort, However, just having the motorcycles show ups in the parking lot will be a wonderful and appreciated tribute to Paul.  Kristen also mentioned a luncheon or gathering of some sort after the burial.  I am not sure how that is going to work out, but just for planning purposes, please give me an RSVP no later than Thursday mid day (919 538-4911) with number of attendees who plan to attend the social afterwards.  I will be back to you with further information on the social.  Kristen also asked if we could bring some pictures of her dad with his motorcycle friends and if we could tell some stories about our riding experiences with her dad.  I am sure we all have about 20 or 30 funny stories,  or simply fond memories of Paul.  For those here in NC:   We will be canceling our planed trip to the Outer Banks next weekend to attend Paul’s internment in Baltimore.  So,  be sure to cancel your reservations prior to 9/4/18 so you do not get charged for the room.  I would like to gather with those from NC who plan to go up to Maryland for the internment and social.  Perhaps we can meet for breakfast on Tuesday morning at 8:30 at the Hometown Cafe in Franklinton to finalize plans for the trip up to Maryland.  For those in Maryland: Please get the word out to those in MD who knew Paul to see if we can get lots of motorcycles at the internment to honor Paul and show his family just how much Paul meant to GWRRA and all of us.  I remember escorting Paul and Linda’s son, Scott to this cemetery after his untimely death about 14 years ago.  The Wings made a tremendous impression on the Trahan family.  Also please RSVP to me with a count of attendees so I can pass this to Kristen. Below is the Obit for  Paul.   https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/baltimore-md/paul-trahan-797516
