Tom and I are so saddened by April’s passing. We remember her as a beautiful, vivacious young woman who loved her family and enjoyed life. She helped “captain the ship” on lake Pend Oreille with Kay and John for many summers along with her sister Lisa. She was a loving mother to Taylor, Courtney and Ryan and surely a friend to many. Our thoughts are with her grieving family. Farewell lovely girl, rest in peace.

I have had the pleasure of knowing April for 10 years. We started working together at URS and when we lost our contract she went on to work for Jana and I followed her about a year later. We would go to lunch occasionally at both jobs and sometimes I would even share my food with her. April would always tease me about my shopping habit and we would laugh. We just spoke to each other via phone on March 26th then shortly after I found out what happened. April was truly a loving kind person. She will truly be missed. Rest In Peace April.

I will never forget you April. All those years ago you and I and DeDe were the best of friends and the time we had together was so very special. Even though we went our separate ways after high school, I’ve thought about you so many times and when, occasionally we did get in touch again, it meant so much to me. Rest In peace, sweet girl.
