• April was my little cousin. The last time I saw her was when she was about 10/11 years old. Her family came up to Dallas to visit and we spent the day at the Zoo. She was a fearless, smart, outspoken little girl and I'll remember that time always.
    Although her loss is a tragic blow to her friends and especially her parents, sibling, grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousin its great to see the impact her life had on the Goliad community.
    He life was not in vain. She affected her community with her energy, vigor and love for life.
    I ask all of her surviving friends to first, hold steadfast is the Spirit of God for your own comfort and refuge and secondly use April's memory as an inspiration for your own life to move forward in the servitude and enrichment of those less fortunate.
    Stay close in your community and lean on one another and encourage on another during this very difficult time.
    Take this time to love and support those that carry on.
    April, you are loved, you will be sorely missed and there will never be another young lady like you.

  • I see that now and that's something new I learned about her. I tried to remove the comment, but it won't let me.

  • She went by both. Her given name is Abril, which is Spanish in origin.

  • This was a nice article about a great girl. Would be better had her name been spelled correctly. It's April, not Abril.
