What a great friend Len was to me...I remember so well all the times that Len, Jim and I had in Abbeville. We would speak on the telephone for hours at times and I had spoken to Len about two months ago. Len and Jim would come to my home in Abbeville and my mother, Mary, really loved both of them. I remember so well Farmer's Cleaners and, again, all the times we had. My condolences to Travis and his family and all of Len's Friends....Danny

So sorry to hear of Len's passing. He and I were best friends in grammar school and we have tried to keep in touch over the years. I will remember Len for his wonderful creativity and sense of humor.
