 Thank you so much for sharing your stories and photos of your beautiful daughter with us. She was so full of life and so talented.

It's so hard for me to imagine because she was the same age as me, and I've been struggling with depression and suicidal feelings, but seeing the strength you have and the courage it takes for a loved one to move on after such a tragedy inspires me to keep fighting Life is so precious and I didn't realize it until I came across your daughter's page. 

RIP  and be happy, finally.

 Dear Mom of Courtney, I can't even pretend to know the pain you are experiencing, but this I feel about your beautiful, sweet daughter, she is not hurting anymore. She has found the peace she longed for. I know that it does not make it less painful for you, but hopefully you can feel her peace too, and share it between you. 

The tribute for Courtney is so inspiring and beautifully composed. I have found many answers to questions that I fear, my granddaughter is going through some of the same issues as Courtney. She is 19 and bipolar/manic depressive. She is getting help and on medication, but my fears are real for her. 

Thank you for sharing Courtney's story. God bless you.

A grandmother.

Hey Court, if you would've told me 5yrs ago I would br writing on your memorial page I would've told them to stick it. You were so kind and loving and a true gift for your mother and everyone you would meet.I know for me you were this precious, fragile creature. I love you Court and it makes me so mad I didn't come see you more. I 'm just glad the Lord thought we deserved you, if only for a littlt while. Love you honey

Thinking of you today Court. I hope you and Jon can send a little light your mom's and my way today. Every day is Memorial Day for us and we miss you guys so very much.

I miss you every single day.  I can't hear a Nirvana or Evanescene song without thinking of you.  I would not be nearly as talented of an artist were it not for you.  You helped me find my creativity and not be afraid of failure in my drawings.  You encouraged me not to give up when I felt like everyone else was better than me.  Thank you for that.  I went to see you today and took you some flowers.  I hope you enjoy them!

Don't think I do not feel because you see no tears. A river rages deep inside of grief, and loss, and fears. Just because I do not cry now, don't think my heart's not broken. I keep inside the misery of words not to be spoken. Sometimes I smile, or crack a joke, so you won't see the pain; or notice how my hands will shake, how I've gone insane. Each time I chance to think of her, my heart is ripped asunder. The loss I feel is mine alone. you will not see my thunder. by Brenda Penepent

Courtney's Memorial is a wonderful tribute to her life and is also helpful to me in trying to understand the choice my son made to end his life like Courtney did. I feel so much love when I visit her site.

Fly with the angels Jason and Courtney, free from pain and sorrow.  You are loved and missed so very much!

Well my beautiful babygirl...Thank you for making me a Mother.  Happy Mother's Day sweety.  Im broken and do not recognize myself and my life anymore because you aren't in it with me!!!

I want you to have the peace you so desired and I want you to be free of the pain that was in your mind and body. 

To say "I miss you" is an understatement...

I'm sending you up all my love, kisses and hugs!!!

Court, I went by and seen your mom this morning. I have been feeling like I needed to see her for a couple of weeks now. I know Mother 's Day is coming up, and you now your mom. A Mother's Day without you will be unbearable for her. I think I did what you wanted, I got her a card. Nothing as creative as you always were, but I wanted her to know that I was thinking of her and that I knew you were. I've always. loved you both very much, but it is hard for me to see her. because I just want to start crying. But ok I love you pretty girl. Watch over your m om and pawpaw.

 Losing a child to suicide at any age is horrible. I lost my wonderful son on January 6th 2006. People will say all the usual things they say when somebody dies but none of it really helps. 

Unless you have gone through it nobody really understands.

My son was a police officer who took his life with a bullet from his service revolver. 

He suffered from PTSD but I also think he was suffering from major depression that was untreated.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to your family!

Hello Robin, I have several pet memorials on critters.com. I visit this site every once in a while and sometimes a memorial strikes a place in my heart. Your beautiful Courtney's memorial did just that. I am going to be  creating memorials for my father, mother and step-father on this site soon.

I was just visiting my beautiful Labrador Ebony this morning. She has a memorial on critters. Five years ago today I remembered saying goobye to her. You may visit her, if you'd like. I don't have human children, but I've had many pet children. I am so glad that Sharon and Marc provide us these wonderful places to visit our loved ones, and share our stories.

My mother also committed suicide in 1981. I had moved from Oregon to California and hadn't seen her for 2 1/2 years prior to her death. We are not sure of her exact death date. She took her boyfriend's car and went for a ride up to a mountain road to end her life. A state trooper noticed a car setting back under some trees. The second time he passed by that spot (a couple days later) ithe car was in the exact same place.

Mom had taken a garden hose and stuck in in the car muffler with rags stuffed ariuond it. She ran it up through the driver window and rolled the window up. She stuffed rags in the wndow so no air would escape. She died of carbon monoxide poisoning. They said she had been dead for a couple days. We were not allowed to see her due to those circumstances.

She was found dead on my younger brother's wedding day. She had a habit of being a no-show. My stepfather was called by the state trooper the morning of my brother's wedding and did not tell him until late that evening.

I will never forget receiving that call at work from my older brother December 2, 1981. Mom would have been 78 on April 16, 2012. although she was gifted in so many ways, she had several mental disorders for various reasons...some clinical and some from various types of abuse. She also had a split personality. I knew three of them named Y'Vonne, Vida and Cida, but my step-father told me before he died a couple years ago that there were more...maybe five or six.

Like Courtney, my mom was also a brilliant artist. She also played the piano. She could sing, and if fact sang in night clubs in New Mexico back in the sixties when beatniks were "in". She graduated in 1978 from Chemeketa Community College with a 4.0 in Journalism. She loved to write poetry and short stories.

My older brother  found her 21 page suicide letter in my granmother's keepsake trunk out in a storage shed eight years after her death. The letter was folded in half and stuck between the pages of a book.

I want you to know that even though you are "the mother" and I am "the daughter" we have so much in common. Everyone who experiences suicide has that in common, but your Courtney and my mom Y'Vonne have other things in common as well.

Here I am 31 years later still asking...why? My mom did not give a reason in her letter, but we knew she was worn out mentally and ready to be at peace. Suicide was not "the answer", it was "their answer". It is sad that the person who commits suicide only dies once...and the ones who are left behind die many times.

Courtney's memorial is beautiful, and I commend you for the creation. Very tactful and beautiful music. My heart is truly with you Robin. I do not know what it's like to lose a daughter by way of suicide, but I do know what it feels like to experince the act itself. We will see them again. Hugs to you and your family. May you find peace and one day again, joy...while you remember the past walk you had with your daughter and move forward and "up the moutain" without her.

Blessings to you, and thank you so much for sharing your beautiful daughter with us! Carole Turner.

Robin, I am now writing in your memorial. I sometimes just  don't want to think about what has happened to my friends and maybe it will go away. Reality is there and what a beautiful young lady Courtney was. I remember the fun times when I used to bring Ross over and Courtney paid attention to him. God gave you a gift to enjoy and we do not understand why it is gone except for you to have faith and trust in him. Love you Robin.
