On June 13th, 2009, Courtney was riding in her sisters car with one of her sisters, her 17 month old niece, and a friend of the two sisters. We had just bought a house, and the girls werent familiar with the country roads near the new house. Thery left the house to go get chicken wings. About 20 minutes later, I got the phone call that there was an accident. I went to the scene, only to find out that Courtney did not survive being T-boned by a truck that was hauling a horse trailer. Shock is all I remember after that. Courtney was a very well-liked, typical teenage girl. She was very well behaved, never got into any trouble at school, and had the biggest heart of any 15 year old girl I knew. There is not a day goes by that I dont think of her, and the special bond we had. She is very sadly missed by me, her dad, and her sisters. I do my best to make sure her memory does not diminish.
