    So sorry for the loss of your daughter. It saddens my heart when a parent out lives their children. April was pleasant while she resided here at Churchland Forest Apartments.

    When I met you we just clicked. We’d just met and it felt like we had known each other for years. That’s the kind of person you were. I named my daughter after yours. We shared many good times. April you will be missed by many.

    My prayers are with the family during this time of sorrow. I met April during her employment with Norfolk Court Service Unit. During one of our conversations we talked of peace. I believe April has the peace she spoke of wanting now. May the comfort of Our Lord & Savior surround you & the memory of your loved one give you some peace. God Bless you.

    My condolences to the family and friends. April and I worked together for last 4 years. She called me her work mom. I will always treasure the last time we met briefly because that’s the last time we spoke and hugged. She said I know COVID distancing but I want a hug. We hugged and said our farewell and that’s the way I want to remember her. To the girls, your mom was special and she will be missed. May the grace of God comfort and give peace and understanding during your time of loss. Take care God will be watching over you.

    My prayers are with you, the family. I met April in 2010 while working at the Community Services Board. She was always pleasant and respectful to me. Just last week and not knowing she had transitioned, I was reminiscing to my daughter, some words of encouragement she had shared with me. I will forever remember her smile. I’m trusting that God will keep you all hopeful and that you’ll find peace in Him during your moments of grief. God is faithful!!
