April, also known to many as, “Big A” was born April 25th, 1982 at Mount Sinai Hospital to Gloria Houck and Charles Long. She grew up here in Harlem, where she attended Manhattan Village Academy.
April had a beautiful soul, she was passionate, smart, funny, and had an amazing spirit. She loved life, having fun, going out, she loved to cook....and let's not forget she loved her some Michael Jackson....she would get down when his music played...she just knew in her head that was her husband....(laugh)...but most importantly, she loved and adored her   children. She was a beautiful person inside and out and Lord knows you couldn't tell her she wasn't....(laugh)....she use to say she could be in dove commercials with how beautiful her skin was. She had a big heart and no matter what she was   going through, she would always make time for you. April loved taking pictures and capturing memories that will now live with all of us forever.
April is survived by: her mother Gloria Houck; her sister, Ashley Long; her children, Andre Charles Long Barnes and Ameir Lare Eggleston Long; her uncle, Cornell Houck; her aunts, Renee and Venus Houck; her first cousins, Tanesha,  Lisa, Little Billy, Anthony, Ivory, Corey, Shavon and Chris.....and so many more.
April you were loved so very much and will be missed dearly. May your beautiful soul rest in peace.

even though we may feel alone when we lose someone we love God reminds us that he is there with us ready to comfort us.We can appreciate that now and Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore the former things have passed away.”

By means of God’s kingdom that Jesus mentioned at Matthew 6:10 that is what we can look forward to in the future.

WWW.JW.org gives you more insight on the future blessings this kingdom will bring.
I will continually keep you in my prayers during this time and in the days

I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Long family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection and the renewed Paradise earth, where death is an enemy that will very soon be eliminated forever, and no family will mourn the death of a loved one . This promise has been given by Almighty God Jehovah. Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievab day that will be! It's a reality though for God cannot lie.
