April Brayfield, RIP

May a wonderful colleague and a lovely person, April Brayfield, rest in peace.  She left us much too soon and the world is a poorer place for her absence.

One of April's signature gestures was to hood one of her doctoral students on the stage during the Graduate Commencement ceremony at Tulane, and then pull out her camera and take a picture of the newly-minted Ph.D. right then and there.  It made her students stand out and feel special, and I always thought it was a wonderful, kind, lovely gesture.

She will be missed.

Thanks for sharing this Jimmy. She was a memorable professor for me and it is a shame that more students at Tulane won't have the opportunity to learn from her.
