April, or (Appa as her brother would call her) was a very loving and caring person with a heart of gold and never failed to put a smile on anyone she interacted with. She loved to cook and always prepared the best of any meal you could ask for. Dearest to her heart was her daughter Amara, whom she loved more than anyone else. She loved spending time with her family and would always be indulging in her favorite TV shows, which she could watch for hours. She loved her dogs Pepito, Oreo, and Precious. Sadly, she was called to be with the Lord however we know that she is smiling down and watching over us.
