  1. I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Diane will be sorely missed, by not only me but her students, staff and faculty at Georgia Military College-Stone Mountain. Diane cared passionately about her students, colleagues and the community she lived in! Some of her students went to the community garden today in her honor. Diane was one of the most giving human beings I have ever met. She loved teaching, sharing of her time, her many talents and treasures. Although my heart is broken, the world is a better place because of Diane and I thank God for having shared such a lovely person with us. I will miss her dearly as Diane was my friend.

    May the peace of God and fond memories remain in your hearts,
    Janis Anderson
    Director, GMC-Stone Mountain

  5. It was very shocking and sad once a former college classmate of mine told me the news and couldn’t believe it and at first I thought it was a prank. Dr. Langston will be missed, because she was very caring towards her community and friends. If you needed to talk to someone about a personal problem she was there to listen and give you her support and advice.

  8. It has taken me a minute to collect my thoughts of a woman gone way too soon. Dr. Langston was the joy of Stone Mountain and it was a great honor to have know and been in the presence of this joy for the past 4 years. You never know how much of an impact a person has on your life until it’s too late. Since I found out I been racking my mind of what was the last thing I said to her and I have come to the conclusion that it was her saying hello with the beautiful smile like she has done everyday.

Just know that you have a very special place in each of our hearts at GMC- Stone Mountain.

Every time I saw her she would greet me with that beautiful smile and she would talk to me as if we was old acquaintances. She genuinely cared about the welfare of all the students, whether she knew you or not. I am missing her already….

  10. I was really shocked when we were told that Dr. Langston had passed, Even before I became a student in her class, everyone talked about how wonderful and helpful she was.

Her passion was teaching and and working in the community garden and it showed. I will truly miss her .My condolences go out to the family

  11. How do we say “goodbye” to someone who always said “hello”, with a genuine smile that said “I’m so glad to see you today”!

    May her soul rest in perfect peace.

  14. Dr. Langston was my first college professor. I am currently a dual enrollment student at GMC and I met her when I was sixteen years old. She used to wait with me after class was over and we would talk until my mother came to get me. We had one thing in come which was the city of Boston. Me being from Boston, she told me how she visited Boston and fell in love with the city and the colleges. One college in particular which was Harvard. Talking to her about this made me feel close to home again. I am so sorry for everyone’s loss. She was a wonderful person inside and out and I am so thankful I had her as my first professor. I will never forget what she taught me.

  15. . I have known Dr. Langston as Professor of English at Westwood College Atlanta Northlake campus. A sweet, soft-spoken and admirable person loved by her colleagues and students. Many students remember her as a teacher who molded their lives and inspired their spirits. May her memories ease the pain of the hearts of her loved ones. On behalf of the Academia, I convey our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends.

  16. Dr.Langston was my first college course English teacher and one that will not be forgotten. She was always smiling and was such a great spirit. I learned a lot in her class and her class was always active and fun. I’ll never forget when we went to the community garden in her class and she lost her rake. It was her favorite rake and she was so sad that she lost it. So when I found her rake she was so happy and filled with joy. Also, I’ll never forget when she gave me compliments on my clothes. She’s such a sweet lady and she will be missed.
    Sincerely, Quinton
