Aprildawn Nieves Hand, a resident of New Braunfels, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 17, 2012 in Comal County at the age of 26. Aprildawn was born on February 27, 1986 in Dumas, TX to Jack W. Hand and Ana M. Aguayo Hand. During most of her working career, Aprildawn was employed as a customer service representative in the retail industry. Aprildawn was a happy-go-lucky girl who loved and lived life to its fullest. She was never without a smile and thrived upon helping others-often putting other's needs before her own. Aprildawn was a girly girl, but at the same time was completely capable, and actually did, replace the brakes on her older sister's car. Dear Aprildawn, you will be sorely missed. You will always have a special place within our heart. Survivors include her son, Micah Esteban Hand; mother, Ana M. Aguayo Hand; brothers, Aliosha and Ian Hand; sister, Kima Hand; grandmother, Maria Aguayo; uncles and aunts, Pedro Aguayo, Patricio Aguayo, Myriam Aguayo, David Aguayo and wife, Tina, Jose Aguayo, Cecilia and Richard McCarter, Carmen and Nick Morris; 12 nieces and nephews; 19 cousins and a host of very dear friends. Visitation will be held from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Friday, June 22, 2012 at the Lux Funeral Home Chapel. A memorial service is scheduled for 2:00 PM on Sunday, June 24, 2012 at the Community Bible Church, 2002 Spur St. in New Braunfels.

And you know what’s funny, you are my first and last love.
