April grew up in Jacksonville and graduated from Wolfson High School in 1974. After high school she attended Florida Junior College and then went on to attend Florida State University.

    So saddened to hear this tragic news of April. Over many years I was fortunate to have a business relationship with both April and Greg. April was the consummate professional with both a sharp legal mind as well as a practical approach to resolving potentially troubling issues. But beyond all this she was a compassionate lovely person. She and Greg to my mind were always the dynamic duo. will be missed

  • Greg, Joy and Family, I am so, so sorry for your loss. I loved April so much and I will remember her as always, always smiling and laughing. Watching her video, I could hear her laugh. Please know that I am thinking of you all and wish that I knew earlier. I am sorry that I was not there at the service, I would have been had I known. God is taking care of this Sweet Angel now. May God bless you all during this difficult time.

    I love you guys! Linda and Katelyn Schiesser and Allie Bates
