"Tuesday's Child is full of
(A Tribute to Mr. Aquilla (Quill) S. Albritton)
It is with saddest of regrets that Heritage Properties announces that we have lost one of our associates Quill Albritton on Tuesday, July 5, 2016.
Quill was not just one of my associates who loyally worked with me and followed me for 16 years of 20 everywhere I have practiced real estate, but he was like my daddy.
As long as I can remember as a child, Quill was at my house every day. My daddy called him "Bud", which is what I called him until he started working with me. Bud and my daddy were as thick as thieves, and closer than brothers. They would play horse shoes, ping pong, ride around together, or just sit outside the house and talk. Bud was a true friend to my daddy who loved Bud for sure, until the day he died at the young age of 39, and then Quill stepped up to the plate and was truly the next best thing to me having a daddy.
It is so fitting that Quill was born on a Tuesday, and died on a Tuesday. "Tuesday's Child is full of Grace"...that describes him so perfectly. He was a true southern gentleman, from the old school...still carried his handkerchief around in his pocket. On many occasions I would ask Quill to show homes for me, especially when I was delayed or had accidentally overbooked myself, or someone called on spur of the moment and wanted to see a property that I just couldn't get to at the time...on almost every occasion, after he had met with the customers or clients, I would receive a phone call. Not about the house or property, but to thank me for sending "Mr. Albritton" to meet them, and they would say things like "Mr. Albritton is such a gentleman", or "Mr. Albritton bought me a coke from the country store, and brought out to me wrapped in paper", or "Mr. Albritton took my family to lunch, and wouldn't let me pay", or "Mr. Albritton wouldn't let me drive, he insisted on driving me around", and on and on came the compliments. I loved this man full of grace.
I would also ask him to do things like pick up tables and chairs to deliver for Broker's open houses, and he would insist on taking them back also, even though I would offer to have someone else do it; Or ask him to deliver fliers for me, or ask him to go turn lights on, or ask him to do an open house on Sunday at the last moment. Only on just a few occasions do I remember that he ever had to say no, and that was normally if he was sick, or doing something with his family. If I went longer than a week or so without calling him, he would call me and ask "Are you mad at me? You haven't asked me to do anything for you this week"..If I would say "Well I feel like I ask you to do too much"...and he would always respond "If you need me and don't call me, I will be mad". I loved this man full of grace.
Quill was a true family man, who dearly loved his wife Joyce, his son Jeff, and his daughter Debbie. Joyce is a role model not just for me, but for all women. She is not only beautiful on the outside, but down to the heart beautiful. Jeff is an inspiration to me and is like a bright shining star. Debbie, who has taken care of the entire family for over 6 months, is a trooper, and has a heart of gold. I share with them the true grief of losing this wonderful man, who has always been there for me.
An inspiration to many, a Man full of Grace.
