April we are going to miss you so much.
You are one of the most beautiful souls, so caring toward others and the best mom! We always loved saying hi in walmart or when we bumped into you at smiths. Ron always tracked you down somehow to say hi. I am glad he did, it has been so nice to reconnect and laugh together about life. Our condolences to Kevin, your children, and all of your family and friends.
Love Ron and Heather Beth
