So sorry to hear this. I attended church with Trilby and Ezra. Salt of the earth Christian folks. She was a sweetheart for sure.

My condolences on Trilby's passing. I knew her through Pioneer days and also through First Methodist. She was always very kind to me. Her family will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I'm sure she and Ezra had a big ol' reunion by now!!! RIP Trilby.
