    April is a shining Beacon for us. A beautiful Angel that her Creator has taken he home and greeted with her loved ones. April now has a purpose to protect and guide her family.

    April, Your not gone, your just in another place, a place where you can run, jump, kick , do a kart wheel, be in a beautiful bushel of flowers, sitting down gathering all the people to come listen to you, they would come no matter if they wanted to or not, just to hear your big voice. I hear all the things your peers are saying about you and I wish I just wish. YOU MY BABY HEARD ONE :(
