April Campbell, known as Aunt_A here at DG passed away 12-06-10. April was one of our DG writers and we all enjoyed her articles. She leaves us with a wonderful legacy of gardening knowledge and humor.

April was a frequent visitor to our Prayer Forum and many of us were recipients of her sincere prayers.

She was also a gardener with many interests and talents, which is why she was so popular as a writer. Her wide range of topics assured everyone of finding something they could enjoy when her articles appeared. This link will take you to her list of published articles: http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/by.php?user=Aunt_A

We'll post again with her arrangements as soon as we receive them. Her nephew, MitchF will forward the information as soon as it is ready.

I am very saddened to hear of April's passing... I loved her articles very much and saw her post her sincere prayers for many on the Prayer Forum. God must have needed a wonderful new angel. My prayers go out for her family and friends who I know will miss her so.

she looks to be a mere child...certainly too young to leave us yet.
my sympathies go out to all who knew and loved her. i can tell by her smile alone that she will be sorely missed.

I didn't know Aunt_A but I knew her nephew Mitch, so I am sure she was a great person that I would have liked. I remember reading her articles too. Some of which are very funny, she had a great sense of humor that came through in the articles.
Prayers for the family and those friends on DG whom she was closest too.

Thank you - all of you... i am sending each and everyone of these on to her husband. She was in her early 40s, she only knew of the cancer just months ago in July and now so quickly after a strong fight she is a peace.

My heart is broken. Had many conversations with her on DG. I am just stunned. No doubt she is at the foot of the throne today. God bless you, Mitch, and all the rest of her family.

I pray the love of God enfolds each of you and the Campbell family during your journey through grief. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal ~~ Love leaves a memory no one can steal. May your memories be cherished all your days and bring you comfort now and in the days ahead. "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than 10,000 tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love." - Washington Irving
Peace and blessings, always.

Gary, thank you for sharing that quote. I just lost another dear friend on Monday, and was saddened to hear someone tell her family that they shouldn't cry, because they knew she was in heaven. I contradicted them, and said there was healing in shedding tears, and that even Jesus had wept, so who were they to tell a bereaved father and son that they shouldn't cry over her loss. I shared your quote with her husband, and hope it brings him some comfort, too.

Thinking of Mitch and all of April's family today. It seems the holidays just hold a magnifying glass to the holes left in our lives when we lose a loved one. Praying for your peace and a blessed 2011.

so poetically stated...
i was re-reading an old thread the other day and realized that april and i did cross paths at least once. it makes me even sadder to think it wasn't that long ago and i missed an opportunity to know her a little better.
be kind to each other, all of us.
