Epitaph of April Speed:
My family and friends would say that I was a kind and caring person. Three words used to sum up April’s life would be: live, love and laugh. She was a phenomenal woman, a loving daughter, and a good wife. She was a hard working person. She enjoyed living life, love to travel, and she was very active in church. She was a great aunt and god mother. April was a beautiful person inside and out. She was also a good cook in the kitchen, and a great fisherman at the pond. She was well known for having the best house parties. Everyone that knew her would say that she was one of God’s little angels always willing to do anything she could to help someone in need.
She was preceded in death by one brother: Mannix Speed.
