Professor Dirk Lang, currently on leave to serve the work of the Lutheran World Federation as deputy general secretary for ecumenical affairs in Geneva, Switzerland, shared the following sad family news:
“Dirk and Ilona’s son, Julien, passed away last week. Julien suffered from severe cerebral palsy since birth. We pray God send comfort for the whole family and to embrace them gently with peace. The funeral will take place sometime this summer in Winnipeg, Canada.”
One way the Luther Seminary Community can surround the family in addition to prayer, is to send a card or note to them at their home in Geneva:
Ilona and Dirk Lange
Chemin Daniel-Ihly 16
1213 Petit Lancy (GE)
If anyone would like to make a memorial contribution, the family is asking that it be in memory of Julien Lange to the special care home, St. Amant (Winnipeg), that cared for Julien in such an extraordinary way.
