    Our hearts go out to our family. John was a true hero who fought through strife with his head held high. We will miss our cousin, he is in better hands now. Jeff and Lisa

  2. Dear family and friends. I am so deeply sorry to hear about your loss. John will be missed but not forgotten because Jesus’ words found at (John 5:28,29) says there will be a resurrection. So what this mean is that John will be given a fresh new start with the prospect of living forever without death. I hope these promises found in the Bible bring comfort knowing that you have an opportunity to see him again to share more wonderful times together.

    We the members of the Messenger of Deliverance Tabernacle wish to extend our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to you the family of Brother John Leonard, Jr. Know that “Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.” May it comfort you to know that John is resting in the bosom of the Lord Jesus Christ, where there is no more pain, sorrow or suffering! .Yes, he will truly be missed from among us, but more importantly, we bow to the sovereign will of God – who loved him best. Finally, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love the Lord, to those who are the called according to HIs purpose.” So, sleep on brother John, and we will see you in the morning. To the family we also want to say, that if there is anything that we can do, please don’t hesitate to call us; and we will be there for you. We will also be lifting you up in prayer that God will continue to strengthen and keep you in the center of His hand.
