I am so sorry for the family's loss. Courtnie was always a good hearted person and always had a smile on her face. And she was always a good friend to me. The world is a better place having had her in it.

We are broken hearted that such a sweet girl has left her family and the rest of us. We will never forget her. She was such a happy girl. We did not get to know her when she was a mother and later in her life. It is so sad to think that she was tormented by demons that we could not hug out of her. She was so loved. We will always have to remember the kind, sweet Courtney and remember that she is in peace now. We hope all that love her find peace in her memory.

Damian, Cerra, Randy, Pam, Shirley my birthday twin...I am so very sorry to learn of Courtnie's death. Damian and Cerra, I really liked your Mom. Such a pretty girl. I would see your Mom in Springfield while working, and always loved seeing her show up at Douglas. D&C, I cannot recall a time when talking to Courtnie where she did not mention either of you.

All of you are completely on my heart, as is Courtnie. God bless Courtnie forever and ever.

Damian, feel free to call ChurchLady and grab my number.
