    My deepest sympathy to April's family and friends.  It is so sad to loss a loved one especially one so young.  May  you all take comfort in your memories of her.  She was a very special lady, friend, daughter, mother and wife.  Know that she is being welcomed with all those that have gone before her.  Called home much too soon. I wish I could be there but have a trip all ready scheduled.  All my love and prayers to Sue and Gary and Josh and family.

    Our sympathy goes out to Josh, Hayden, Gary, Sue and the rest of the family. We share in your grief.  We admired April so much because of her positive attitude and her strong faith in our dear Lord.  She was an example to many of us.  It doesn't seem fair to lose a child, but as a parent, we have to go on and be thankful for all the good memories we have of that child.  She is being held in God's arms and no longer has to suffer. Comfort comes in knowing death is not the end.  Those who die in Christ will live eternally,

    Sending love, Jack and Val Glotfelty

    I am so saddened to hear of April’s passing.  I grew up with her and Josh when we lived in Illinois, it was many years go, but I prayed for her and her family when i heard she got sick.  We, like so many others hoped and prayed that God would heal her.  

    Josh and family, we are praying for a peace that surpasses all understanding.

    My condolences to Josh, Hayden, and the rest of April's family and friends.  I am extremely lucky to have gotten to know April over the last 4-5 years.  April always greeted me with a "Hi Chris!" and a smile.  I will miss that, but I will never forget it.
