Mrs Emma Lee Kelton and Pastor Bill Kelton were among the most encouraging and gracious people I met when I came to Heritage Church. I will always remember their smiles and kind words, but most of all looking out in the 9:30 service and seeing their hands lifted in worship giving praise to God and their frequent kneeling or standing at the altar, praying together. I know she will be missed by those closest to her. I can only imagine the reunion in heaven !
