I'm so sorry for y'alls loss. Please hold it dear in your hearts that the light that shone through April will go forward for generations. The world is rarely blessed with people who give so much of themselves, not only to those near and dear, but to complete strangers who just need a hand up. We were all very blessed to have such an amazing person in our lives.

I wanted to share my condolences with the Dohle family. I am very sorry to hear the terrible news. April was always a shining with joy. I still remember all the summers I would spend with your Thomas and Mariah. I still remember how Tom would drive us home late at night to ensure we made it home safe. I will cherish all these memories for a lifetime. I can't begin to imagine the pain you all must be going through. I pray that God is with you during this difficult time. It's hard to imagine that God needed April more than we did. We always find ourselves asking why now? Why so soon? We may never have that answer in this lifetime. However He always has a plan for everything. We can hold on and cherish those special memories we each shared while we were blessed to have her in our lives. April was a 1 of a kind lady that was taken away far to soon. May God be with you all. I will pray for each of you that you may find comfort in the Lord.
