    When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

    When tomorrow starts without me
    And I’m not here to see
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    Are filled with tears for me

    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
    The way you did today
    While thinking of the many things
    We didn’t get to say

    I know how much you love me
    As much as I love you
    And each time you think of me
    I know you’ll miss me too

    But when tomorrow starts without me
    Please try to understand
    That an angel came and called my name
    And took me by the hand

    And said my place was ready
    In Heaven far above
    And that I’d have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love

    But when I walked through Heaven’s gate
    I felt so much at home
    When God looked down and smiled at me
    From His great golden throne

    He said this is eternity
    And all I promised you
    Today your life on earth is past
    But here it starts anew

    I promise no tomorrow
    For today will always last
    And since each day’s the same way
    There’s no longing for the past

    So when tomorrow starts without me
    Don’t think we’re far apart
    For every time you think of me
    I’m right here in your heart

  2. Always smiling, always laughing that contagious laugh you inherited from your father. Ever since I met you when I was four, the skinny little girl next door, when you entered a room you would light it up with a warm greeting or one of your funny antics. God gave you such a beautiful soul and a big heart and you used them in life, love and your work. The world will be a much sadder place without your effervescent presence, but because of your light, Heaven will be a much brighter and easier place for us to find. I love you and will miss you my childhood friend, until we meet again….

  3. Our deepest condolences to April’s family and close friends. Eryn and I were reminiscing how much more fun it was when April joined in the activities with the girls. Always a smile and a kind word. May you find peace in memories and the knowledge of her love!
    With love,
    Janet and Eryn Goff

  4. Dear April you are gone too soon. One of the kindest and most caring nurses I have come across in my travels. I can only imagine how your daily coworkers are feeling. You brought joy everyday. Prayers for your family and friends.

  5. April, I will always remember your beautiful spirit. I truly respected you as a coworker and friend. You were silly and serious all in the same time. I will always remember your smile when you spoke of your wonderful daughters. I hope they know how much you were loved and valued. I feel blessed that I have been in the same world as you.

  6. Heartfelt condolences to April’s family and friends. They don’t come any kinder or caring then April. She lit up a room with her presence. That smile!!! She will be greatly missed by everyone who was so fortunate to have known her.

  8. My deepest condolences to April’s family and friends. April was a good neighbor. I will always remember both of us shoveling the snow from our driveways and talking about how we wished it was summer! She was always friendly and kind. May her spirit be in heaven, and I pray for peace and comfort for the family.

  9. Today the world loses one of its brighter lights that helps shine in the darkness. That light is called back to the source for a the next assignment. May the next one burn just as bright!
    You will be missed. We were so blessed to have you all these years.

  10. I have known my Aunt April, my whole life and I Love her very much. I am deeply saddened this day, as i looked forward to wishing her another Happy Birthday. Instead I have to say goodbye. I will always remember and cherish the time that we had together. Tell Bubby and K-Pop hello for me and give them a big hug. Rone

  11. My deepest condolences to April’s family and friends.
    April was one of the kindest and funniest persons I met at First Baptist Church in Milford. She was always laughing and cracking jokes. Her smile lit up a room.

    Although it has been years since we have seen each other, in reminiscing, April was the best sitter and so much FUN to be around!

    May God bless and keep you today and in the days to come. May her laughter and memories comfort you on hard days and bring joy to your soul.
