    As an extraordinary lady, Sister Donna Kelly left a legacy that will be cherished by all those who knew her. As a Christian couple, she and Bro. John Kelly were faithful in their loving worship of God, their lifelong dedication to their church, and their love for their family and many friends. Our prayers continue for the family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance.
