    I remember when April came to Plainwell HS with her joyous spirit and friendliness. I last saw her working at the Kalamazoo People’s Food Coop and she had that same warm, engaging smile. She lit up my day that day also. Please accept my condolences and I pray and hope for your strength in this sad time.
