JoAnn - My heart aches for you and your family. I remember your talking about April, all those years ago when we worked together. No mom loved her daughter more. I'm glad that she's pain-free and in a better place, but I know your grief is enormous. My prayers for you and April continue.

April was an amazing spirit who always thought of others before herself. Even through her own struggles, she made sure to pray for me in my struggles. I will never ever forget her kind words. Her family will always be in my thoughts.

I was friends with April since high school. Her and I stayed in touched through social media then medical issues we shared united us again. The one thing I always said was how positive and inspiring she is. No matter what was thrown at her she kept fighting going on making things beautiful celebrating life. Waking up and finding this news is bittersweet. My heart is broken for her family and her kids and husband especially and the fact that she is no longer here. My spirit rejoices that she is no longer suffering and is home with her father in Heaven. April I love you. I miss you. Your friendship and love and life has made me know not to complain about minor things to keep fighting and don't ever take anything for granted. You are missed RIP my friend.
