Barb Polzel February 23, 2018 Every time the song "Geronimo" comes onto the radio, I am reminded of April. When I think of puppies, I am reminded of an ongoing inside joke that we shared called Puppy Facts. Many people will miss April, and I am one of them. I am glad I got to meet her on this side of eternity.
