Kendall Lynn Doss Funeral Expense
EVERY parent's worst nightmare is having to go through the experience of burying a child...
On September 14, 2015 a tender life was taken too soon from this Earth, Kendall Lynn Doss, whom only got to experience this world for only just over 18 months. She was born February 23, 2014 at 9 lbs 5 oz.
My brother, Derek Doss, absolutely cherished his daughter and everyone who knows Derek know he is devastated. His daughter meant the whole world to him. On behalf of our entire family, we sincerely appreciate and thank everyone for reaching out and sending their condolences and prayers during this difficult time! We can't thank you enough!
Many friends have already asked if there is anything they can do to help. We do ask for help for Derek to raise money for her funeral expenses as funeral costs are astronomical these days.
Any and every donation will be sincerely appreciated and no donation is too small as every little bit counts.
Thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts!
Funeral and services are to be determined as awaiting confirmation of the autopsy report to determine cause of death. I will post updates as soon as a funeral date is set.
Derek was so happy to be a father
Kendall had the same chubby chimpmunk cheeks like her father when he was a baby

Every little bit helps and together you guys as a whole have made this tragic time not be a financial burden upon the parents. I have had several close friends of mine reach out and request I leave this up for a few more days as they were waiting to get paid.
A life taken too soon is one of the world's cruel tragedies. No parent should ever have to go through the nightmare of burying one of their children. I watched how much it devastated my parents when they had to bury Derek's twin sister years ago and now seeing him having to go through that same gut wrenching experience for his first and only child is every bit heart shattering.
Thank you for every one that sent a message for support or helped with a donation as every little bit helps. For those that are in northeastern PA , the funeral services will be held at Maryott-Bowen Funeral Home Friday, September 18. The viewing starts at 11 am and the services will be at 1 pm.
Shaun, I assume you havent had to bury anyone recently. If you think 8k is a lot to ask for a funeral, by all means trot your egocentric ass to a funeral home and look at the costs. She was a TODDLER so I assume there were no life insurance policies put into play. For goodness sakes she was 1 year 6 months old... if you dont want to donate....DONT. But dont sit there and fling mud... karma is a bitch and it will bite you. Im sure you never made any mistakes in your life and did everything legal and 110% . Doss family-- Were truly sorry to hear about the little munchkin, Derek, you have Brads number.
Derek Doss...I am so so sorry! Please dont let Shaun Miller get to you. Obviously he suffers from little mans syndrome and has to put others down to feel better about himself. Stop and think about how lonely and pathetic you would have to be to stalk FB go fund me pages to have any kind of social interaction. I guess negative attention is better than none in his eyes. Just know that he is one person who doesnt know enough to stfu....you have many more standing behind you and praying for you. Again...I cant even begin to tell you how sorry I am and if there is anything I can do just let me know. Hugs and prayers!
Shaun Miller...really? If all you want to do is rub salt in open wounds, you should remove yourself from social media and by all means seek psychiatric help. To sit and prey on people at their weakest moments speaks volumes about the type of man you are. Who in their right mind clicks on a go fund me page and makes the hateful, ignorant and very much unneeded comments that you have? How can you take something so tragic and so emotional and try to stomp all over it. Is there any good reason for this behavior? If you have children then you could only imagine how devaststing something like this would be! And if you do not have any...please consider a vasectomy because as ugly as your heart is you really should not reproduce. This is certainly on the top of the list of displays of ignorance and cruelty. I can only pray for you and pray that when karma comes knocking you remember this. When you judge somebody, make sure you are ready to face the same trials and tribulations that you are passing judgement on. If you had any common decency...any shred of humanity....you would man the hell up and apologize and stop the ignorance. Show some damn respect!
Was the little girl medicaid eligible? If so, they are sometimes able to help with burial expenses. you would want to inquire with the funeral home that will be providing the services or with the local social services district . So sorry for your families loss♡
Cool think what you want of me but I'm a realist first goals about to be reached and it's increase by another 3 grand, bet that's not the only time that happens let's see what happens when it's close to $8,000. A tragedy is terrible but I don't see why I should give my hard earned money to help him profIt from a horrible incident. Which there's no detailed info of, with all the sick shit you read these days it's not so far fetched for the parents not to be a factor weather they weren't paying attention or something happend or worse abuse. Not saying that's the caw but with no info that's what I assume. Don't like it too bad freedom of speech can be a bitch
Lol what the cause of death i can't donate unless i know this is not a scam okay i agree with Shaun
Derek we are so very sorry for your loss may god be with you and your family please don't let ignorance bother you and to those who assume you know the saying. Sending my love to you all. And Dan thank you for being a amazing big brother and family man . with love Miniers and Brackbills
Lord in heaven ....Shaun Miller for your own good, I hope none of us every casually run into you in a alley way. Having the right to speak doesn't mean you must. The practice of dignity and decency is obviously something you aren't accustomed to. I understand you're bitter for one reason or another. Probably because you, yourself don't have two pennies to rub together, and you know, no one would ever care enough about your sorry excuse of an existence, to raise money for whatever plight you may succumb to....but with that realization under your belt, kindly leave the Doss family alone and allow them to grieve without the assistance of your bullshit. Now politely exit this forum and f*ck off. Have a blessed day.
Shaun, I'm very sorry for your lost. I'm a Christian and I believe that your little angel is in Heaven for the Lord said all little one will be saved. We don't know no why these things happen. that's just life. I just lost my son on July 9, 2015. I have some info that may be of help that I didn't know of when my son passed. Today it cost so much but may this may help. Contact me at email@example.com
Prayers for you and your family!
Dereck, im lostf or words, i can only i,agine what your going through. I will tell you this though, when you were younger you were like one of My own kids and i love you.

Derek doss lost a precious innocent baby girl and ur all fighting on her page gafl ur all crazy rest in peace baby girl and Derek doss iam so sorry for ur loss just remember gone but never forgotten
I don't have a bank account so I can not donate through this site, but is there an affiliated church or place I would be able to send money to that would be given to the family? I do not know them, but as a mother, I can not even imagine this pain, and my heart sincerely goes out to the entire family.
I lived in New Albany for many years and knew Jean ,Mike's fam and his brother Dan they are good people and if my nieces had not shared on facebook I would not have known. Sympathy goes out to family yes I would like to donate if you do not that is up to the person. but as far as doing what this Shaun is doing he is to be pitied if you can not say something nice.KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!
We love You Derek AND are here for you when ever you need us don't let this dude get to you he's a dumb ass hiding behind a keyboard...... and shaun not saying this is what happen but have you ever though children die from abuse at the hands of other ppl such as babysitter aunts uncle boyfriends everyday and if this is the case you making those stupid comments is just throwing it up in this fathers face that his baby died at the hands of some monster....come on now use your freaking head that is if you have one ....and I am sure if it was at there hands they would not be making it all public smh
