I was privileged to know Trilby and Chuck through APCO for over 40 years and sincerely offer sympathy to Chuck in his loss. Trilby was the epitome of a true southern lady and you could not help but love her. She lit up the room with her smile and laughter. I know her later years were not what one would hope for, but the marriage of Chuck and Trilby remained as strong as the day they were married. May Trilby rest in peace. God has gained a special angel.
