I am a catl lover and saw this tribute via House of Mews.
What a beautiful memorial.
I lost my brother to suicide two years ago.
It is very, very hard for those of us left behind.
Thank you for telling her story.

I came upon Courtney's site via a Facebook posting about the donation to the House of Mews.
First, I see that Courtney was obviously a talented, smart, and beautiful young woman.
Second, I appreciate that you are shining a light on mental illness. There is so much stigma surrounding mental illnesses; stigma I believe causes some individuals to avoid seeking treatment and telling others about the severity of their suffering. I, more than some, appreciate this because I have multiple disgnoses as well (panic disorder, generalized anxiety dosorder, depression, and OCD).
I will keep your beautiful daughter in my thoughts and hope her legacy lives on and that her story positively impacts the lives of others.

We were so sad to learn of Courtney's passing, may she be in peace now forever without pain and suffering. The House of Mews and kitties will miss her sweet visits and appreciate the time she spent here loving our homeless kitties. Thank you, Courtney, for your light and your kindness.

I continue to pray for you and your family. They say time heals all wounds but perhaps that saying pertains to physical wounds that only the eye can see. Wounds of the heart tend to resurface with every heartbeat. I pray that you are at a place in your life where memories of Courtney bring you peace.

I knew Courtney briefly and had lost touch over the years. Her charm and wit had always be part of the bright memories I had from my time in Jonesboro. In my head, she was still making art and being clever. I had no idea she was gone. She did leave an impact, she will always be one of the best artists I've known and one of the kindest people. Happy birthday, old friend. Thanks for the good times we had. Knowing you was a wonderful gift.

Happy Birthday my dear dear friend. I love you and miss you so much. I will always remember and cherish all the time we had together. We had so so many good times.
Love you. Thinking of you.

Heaven is a richer place with you there! A celebration of your date of birth with the Angels!!! How amazing you were and always will be to me! A true gift that I will always be thankful for! This day is so hard and sad for me, but it wouldve been much harder if you were still here trying to survive...so Im thankful you are at peace now and this helps me to accept your absence from my life!
Until we meet again - You hold all my LOVE!!!

A tragic loss to the arts and to all who loved her. So sad that she couldn't find her way through the darkness....Rest in peace, sweet angels as you are remembered on your first birthday in heaven.

Dearest Mother of Courtney,
I'm sorry for your deep loss. I do not know you or your daughter but I was looking for a place to create a memorial for my Grandfather who passed away a few days ago. Your love for your child is very warmly and intelligently expressed. I also have a beloved family member who is suffering with mental illness. I sometimes watch her and believe it must be like a cage she can not escape, at least not without great confusion and distress over what she deals with.
My father is a Psychologist and I myself am studying to become a Psychologist. It takes great courage to deal with and to pull out of mental illness. It reminds me of Robin Williams journey into hell to get his wife out of hell in the movie, "What Dreams May Come". Something most people could not fathom trying to deal with. It takes great bravery to go through the hell of mental illness. Im so sorry for your loss but she left behind beautiful things for people to see...her art.

I became aware of who you were after visiting 'f.o.s' dot com. I was so moved with the page I clicked your picture to find out more about you and to see if I could help bring peace to your friends and family. I didn't know you personally but I wanted them to know your memory is alive. I'm so sorry.

Just visiting again. Thinking of Courtney, my Jason, and all the other children who have left us. They are forever in our hearts. God Bless.

Then the child opened its eyes, and looked up into the angel's beautiful face, which beamed with happiness, and at the same moment they were in heaven, where joy and bliss reigned. The child received wings like the other angel, and they flew about together, hand in hand.

I don't know how I found this site, but the entries Courtney made in her journal read exactly like my own thoughts and writings. I'm not sure if I am glad to have read about Courtney, because I feel so sorry for her, but I understand too. I think it has helped me to read some of the feelings of the Mothers and Fathers ( mine are dead) and sisters and friends. I wouldn't want to be the cause of their pain and I'm sure Courtney didn't want that either...just to make the thoughts and feelings stop.

It was so hard seeing your daughter Robin. I know it's because I lost Serena. We both lost beautiful, bright, creative daughters and the pain is unbearable, the explanations never adequate. Tears for you Robin. I have plenty to share.

Robin - I cried seeing Courtney - you know - such a beauty and soooo sooo talented......

She is stunningly beautiful. I have a son with a mental illness. We lost his older brother, Daniel, to suicide in 1998. I appreciate what you said about mental illnesses. My youngest son talks with me about the "stigma." Isn't it painful enough - the suffering - without stigma? Great commericals on t.v. now with Glenn Close and her sister, who suffers from Bi-Polar, addressing stigma.
Courtney wanted to leave a legacy of helping people. She did. She helped me. Thank you. Her art work is also stunningly beautiful. What a precious young lady.

Thank you for keeping the strength to create the darkness page of this memorial. I recently failed at trying to commit suicide. I felt alone in the way I felt until reading your daughters excerpts. I'm so so sorry for your loss I'm only 24 but I have two little girls and after my attempt I can't think of how much I'd miss them and vice versa. It gets really hard it still is but thank you for showing me that it's an illness that I'm not alone in. I cry tears for your daughter and you right now. She was lucky to have someone care for her so much. I hate that she felt those things.

Thank you for sharing your Courtney....I'm so very sorry for your loss. She is beautiful. Hugs and prayers, Kim
