Tiffany Miller April was a great person! She was very respectable! I enjoyed her company. Her and i were friends in high school. she may have been shy, but she was someone everyone knew, maybe because she was so quiet, everyone loved her. She will be greatly missed! miss you april! i enjoyed all the times we had together!

Jasmine Swan I have no proper words. I know my mom is taking care of April. They can be nothing more than two beautiful angels watching over us Ms.Gertie. April you was stronger than you thought you were but God hsd a greater purpose and since God makes no mistakes I am thankful for the years we were friend and just walk with us and guide us. Chuckle at me from time to time it's okay. Take care of her mommy.

Nita Anderson I remember times we spent at our Grandparents house and the short walk we wouldn't wait to take down the back walk the back way to see Aunt Gertie and the girls; when we were just little grils it the time. My sisters and I love going to spend time with our cousins. I moved to San Diego. But I do try to keep up with my family. I am so sad to lose another family member. She invited God into her life and now I known she is in the best of care now. She will be MISSED SO by her family and special friends.
