Pete, Ryan and Whitney - There are no words to express how deeply sorry we are for the loss of your sweet Courtney. Courtney was a beautiful, happy, kind, funny, caring, compassionate young lady who had a great laugh that was very contagious. I was so blessed to be her aunt! She will be missed by all who loved her and it's obvious that is many! She is now with Joan and other family....what a great reunion for them! Keep prayerful and God will help you through. Your family has got you, we love you and we are here for you always!

Love Diane, Charlie and family!

Courtney you and Whitney always called me "Aunt Ponnie" and I always saw you as my nieces. You were my baby girl. I am so thankful that you and Sparky had so many good times together.
I ask that God give our family the strength that we will all need in our time of hurt and pain. Pete my love and prayers are with you, Ellie, Ryan, Whitney & Keith and our entire family.

It’s true that Courtney/Whitney have plenty of Aunts, but I love how they have always acknowledged me as another Aunt.
My favorite memory of Courtney is when Courtney and Brandon were only four years old. He and I were visiting Joan and the kids, Pete was out of town. At one point when Joan went to check on the kids, she found both Courtney and Brandon in the bathroom. She was on the toilet and he was peeing in the ‘tub’, just talking away. “We both had to go” 🥰.
Love you so very much Pete, Ryan, and Whitney!!

Dear Pete, Ryan, and Whitney,
I am incredibly grateful for all of the wonderful memories I’ve had with Court and you all. Growing up you were my second family. Court was my very best friend. I feel lucky to have been a part of her life. Every memory is a treasure that I will hold onto always. I am thinking and praying for you all nonstop.
I love you all,

Pete, Ryan, Whitney and all who love Courtney, when we lose someone who we love so deeply it takes the wind out of us. Our hearts will never heal completely but it will still beat and we will go on, and believe that we are a better person having had Courtney in our lives. Its been an honor knowing your family over the years and watching our children grow to be such caring, loving adults. I remember when my Mother would come up for the summers and Courtney, Whitney and Cassie would play all day, mother loved cooking for them and she loved it when they called her Grandma. You and the family are in our prayers and remember Courtney will always be with you. God Bless

I am so sorry for the sudden loss of Courtney. To know her was to love her and she will be missed by so many. Her smile was contagious and her positivity radiated to all who had the pleasure to be around her. I remember all the ball games and all the summers spent up at the pool with the rest of the neighbor kids and just laughing and having the time of our lives!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family and hope you find peace in knowing she’s with her mom now.
