At first I did not recognize the name,but when I read her parent’s name, I certainly remembered her mom,Mrs. Polly Mae & I could see the favor,. She was one of the sweetest women at Baptist Tabernacle. I remember Trilby coming to visit especially for VBS. I always thought she had the prettiest name. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and comfort you with His Love. God’s best to you.
