ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Special Thanks to Pastor Rufus and First Lady Lolette Trevillion Sr. Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair.  Perhaps you sent a funeral spray, if so we saw it there. As any friend would say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day.  Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part.
