     It is with deep sadness that we are writing this memorial. Our beloved Father, Reverend James Edward Leaphart, went home to be with his heavenly Father on Thursday, January 11, 2018. Our Dad dedicated his life to the ministry of Jesus Christ and he focused on spreading the word of God so that others would gain salvation. He was a compassionate Christian man who befriended everyone he met. James was a dedicated provider for his wife Sheila and daughters, he always made time to talk to his children and grandchildren. In special memory of him, we are dedicating this memorial for the joy and abundance of love and nurturing he selflessly gave to each of us. Dad, you will never be forgotten. Your memory will remain in each of our lives daily. We were blessed to be a part of your life and we treasure the many lessons you enlightened us with. Continue to rest in peace Dad and know how much you are forever loved and missed.

Love Always Your Girls,

Mindy, Monique, Melissa, Monica, Morgan, and Mallory

    To the Family. I am sorry for your loss and hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. I hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. Revelation 21:4- And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,+ and death will be no more,+neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.”
