    I don’t know any of you “kids”. I did get to know April. I live in the Village at Wesley Manor and I was in the “lunch bunch” with your mom. She will be missed by our group so much. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Teresa and Rob,
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I still remember the long conversations we had over the phone. She was such a nice person and was always concerned about her family that she loved so much. I also loved hearing her stories about back home in Kentucky. May your wonderful memories of her bring you comfort. Revelation 21:4
