Funeral for Community Leader and Pastor

Leverne Murphy was more than a father to his children. He was a father to the community! A leader that mentored and influenced everyone he came in contact with. He used his struggles in a positive way to guide people in the right direction. Even after his stroke he still made an effort to help people. Pastor Leverne is the epitome of unconditional love... 

On may 23rd while crossing the street, he was struck by a speeding car and died a tragic death. Unfortunately he didn't have life insurance, so we're trying to raise money to give him a proper burial. Please help us give our father the benediction he deserves. 

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." -1Corinthians 13:4-5
