Isa sa labis na nalungkot sa pagpanaw ni April ay si Miss World Philippines 2012 Queenierich Rehman.
Sa kanyang Instagram kagabi, June 24, nagbahagi si Queenierich ng tatlong videos ng masasayang bonding nila ng yumaong ka-batch sa Miss World Philippines 2012.
Madamdaming mensahe niya sa caption: "I'm lost for words April.. I just can't accept that you're gone.
"We won't be able to have these wonderful moments together.
"I know that you're in good place right now and we will truly miss you.
"You've fought hard in life till your very last breath.
"We are truly greatful to have met you and ofcourse being one of your close friends during Miss World Philippines and the years after that.
"We love you and we will miss you so much.”
Nagkomento naman dito si Miss World Philippines 2012 1st Princess Mary Ann Ross Misa ng “crying, depressed, at heartbroken emojis.”
Labis ding ikinalungkot ng dating Miss World Philippines director na si Cory Quirino ang pagpanaw ni April.
Saad niya, “I feel your pain my daughters because my heart goes out to April just as your hearts are broken from her demise.
"Missing her too. We had our time with her.
"And yes, how thankful I am that we had these precious moments with April.
"She is in heaven now where there is no pain.”
APRIL “LATE” LOVE JORDAN
Ang isa sa best friends ni April na si Miss Tourism International 2017 Jannie Loudette Alipo-on ay nagsabing sobrang mami-miss niya ang pagiging masayahin at pagiging positibo sa buhay ng yumaong beauty queen.
Mensahe ni Jannie sa kanyang Facebook at Instagram posts kahapon, June 24: “Hi April Love Jordan, hanggang ngayon ayoko pa din tanggapin.
"We’re on our way to see you na [crying emoji].
"Ako ung Laging May problem sa love life and our mothers will tell me, Dapat maging April ka...be like her.. happy and always madam, kaya idol kita.
