  • Fly free sweet Courtney!! I will miss that beautiful smile that you have and making you laugh!! Dennis will miss watching TV with you in the therapy room on Saturdays. Prayers and love for grandma Kay and Jaydean ❤️

  • Condolences to Craig and Brandy and family members. May you find comfort in knowing she is running wild with the horses.

  • What a beautiful video. My heart is broken for her sweet family, but filled with joy for Courtney, knowing her last breath here on earth became her first breath in heaven. Her body and mind are perfect and healthy, as God intended her to be. I use to tell her that when she got ‘home’ Jesus would probably put her in charge of the horses and stables. That made her smile, and what a smile she had!!
    I am so honored to have been her nurse, and grew to love her very much. She will be greatly missed by many. Praise God we will be with her again someday! My prayers continue for comfort and healing for all, especially Kay and Jaydean.

  • My heart is broken, I miss you already Courtney. Prayers and strength to Grandma Kay and Jaydean. God bless.

  • I grew up with Courtney, then I had the pleasure of taking care of her for several years. She was always sweet and sassy. I grew to love her very much. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Rest easy, Court! ❤️

  • I’m sorry for your loss. Courtney and Sherry lived beside my dad on south main street when we were kids and I got the priviledge to spend a short time with her last year. She will be greatly missed. She was such a great person. Rest in Heaven Courtney!!

  • She enters the room and a hush fills the air
    Amazed at the beauty she holds
    For one yet so young she is wise beyond years
    And her radiant love overflows

    Courtney’s songs playing
    Can you hear the sound
    Of love that surrounds her
    and prayers that abound
    Wishing her strength in the days yet to come
    Courtney’s songs playing the sound

    Now two strikes against her she still remains strong
    Fighting the battle a head
    With courage and strength to unreal to behold
    Still Courtney’s song moves her ahead

    Courtney’s songs playing
    Can you hear the sound
    Of love that surrounds her
    and prayers that abound
    Wishing her strength in the days yet to come
    Courtney’s songs playing the sound

    So many battles she still presses on
    Gaining her strength from above
    The battle she chooses to fight not alone
    And Courtney sings loudly her song
    We’d all be much better if we’d learn to face
    The trials in life as she does
    Put faith in the unseen and not what appears
    And we too can sing Courtney’s song

    …and Courtney’s song’s playing the sound
    Sleeep well,sweet Courtney….see you soon Much love and condolences to Kay,Jaydean and the family

  • Dear Tom and Family, We are so sorry about your tragic loss. Sending you all, our deepest sympathy and friendship. Sincerely, Susie and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • Courtney was such a sweet girl, and always so pleasant to all who know her. May Gods blessing be with Kay and Jaydean. Love and prayers . Georgia.

  • I am so glad Benny and I got to see Courtney on Sunday. She definitely smiled when she saw Benny! I never picked the rooms we visited; it was always Benny doing that. He had a real connection with her. A dog can see the heart and soul of a person. So sorry for your loss. She will be missed.

  • I had the pleasure of taking care of courtney. Oh how I’m going to miss her! Her smile her little giggle. The way she loved it when I would take her outside this past summer. She will always be a part of my life! I am pleased to have been able to care for her momma sherry as well. Miss kay thank you for sharing your lovely ladies with me. I’m so sorry for you and sweet jaydeans loss! Keep being too cute my sweet courtney girl. I’ll see you again someday❤

  • My deepest sympathy to grandma Kay & Jaydean. Courtney was a bright spot in my mothers day. My mother watched over her and dear Courtney looked out for her.
    They are meeting up in heaven again and both are walking freely and laughing.
    Rest in peace angels.

  • Our sympathy to the family and especially Grandma Kay and Jayden. My husband and I came to know Courtney in her high school years and at the time she became Jayden’s Mommy. God allowed her to face many challenges in her young life and though it was not easy, she met them with beauty, courage and grace. We will always remember her beautiful smile, her heart and her fierce love for Jayden. She had a spirit that said, “Never give up!” It was a privilege to walk with her for a short time on her life journey. I can only imagine what it must have been like for her to walk free and whole into Jesus’ arms.

  • Ohh Court my heart hurts, you have been through so much I know your with your family now and your happy and strong now in no more pain or sorrow just your with your momma and grandma and your grandpa your so loved and sadly missed! I’m so glad the hell is over for you I love you so much!! Until we meat again.
