I would like to thank Pastor Croom, the funeral home, cemetery, and the military for honoring my husband for the service he gave to our country. The message was comforting and reassuring of the Lord’s grace and forgiveness for His children. I loved Len and will miss him, but I know he is no longer suffering. I want to thank all of you that have shown him kindness and love. WhenI look at the flag , I will always think of him. His loving wife and stepsons .

I just want everyone to know that Mr. Doss loved his wife Mrs. Carol Doss so much. He stated to me about having the best Christmas he has ever had this past year 2020. I became so close to him because he always opened up to me, I felt we had a lot in common so a sweet man always smiling and profiling. I know i was not related to him but I could relate to what was going through his head. He wanted his family and love for his wife he was so happy with his life before he passed. I saw him 2 days before he passed and thanked his wife and Keith and Wd for being there for him. I did not know that he was going to pass but he was grateful for both of his stepson's and his wife for always being there for him and always making sure he got to his doctors appointment. Mr Doss was a very happy man i remember all our talks and his smile. We got him a green benne and the family called him our little elf. Mr. Doss just smiled and love it. We of course took he last picture with the green benne. I will miss our talks Mr. Doss and your smiles. I just known you for 5 years but you will be miss and never forgotten. We all love you especially your wife Mrs. Carol Doss. Love you Mr. Doss I will truly miss your little smile .

Len was a good friend that I met in Lemoore CA in 1971. He always made me feel like part of the family.
