Obituary For Samiyah Grace Leonard

Little Miss Samiyah Grace Leonard, of Cary, NC, blessed us with her love and captivating smile for 1 year, 7 months, and 30 days. Even though she transitioned on January 25, 2022, she will forever live in our hearts. Samiyah was born on May 27, 2020, to Brian Keith and LaTeisha Nicole Leonard. From the first few days in NICU, Samiyah proved to be resilient, tenacious, and very expressive. She enjoyed time with her family, especially her Big Sissy, Olivia Grace; listening and dancing with Mommy to R&B music; watching Alabama Football with Daddy…ROLL TIDE!; and attacking her seahorse mobile when her parents weren’t watching. She was full of joy that could brighten the darkest hours. Samiyah’s life was not without troubles, but she lived fully despite her limitations. God truly blessed her little heart!

    Since we talked last week I have struggled to find what to say, and I can't find the words. So, I have decided to pray. I have realized that God's hands are big enough, and this is required to do. I stand with and your family through this difficult time.

    God sent you an angle for a little while. One who brought you love and joy. When you see the sun shining remember her smile and when you hear the wind blow and the rain tapping on the roof top, that's her singing you a song. She will forever live in your hearts. May God continue to comfort you all. Love Emma
