Good-bye, Bro. Hoyt...

Rev. Edward Hoyt Dalton, founder and pastor of the Riverton Holiness Church for the past 30+ years, finished his race yesterday morning at the age of 76. Bro. Hoyt was an ever-present figure during my childhood; and I will always fondly remember him as a jovial, loving man, who preached the Gospel to me when I was a child.

My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Sis. Betty; sons, Stanley & Steve; and other members of his family, as well as the church family at Riverton.
