Steve, Michelle,& Barb I'm sorry it's taken me so long to do this..but it's tough...the times together were short and few and far between, but when we had the oppertunity to share time together it was the best!!! The ultrimate complimate for a parent ...is to have someone tell you that your kid is hip....enough said ...you did a good job... Steve, Barb, & Michelle

"In one sense there is no death. The life of a soul on earth lasts beyond her departure. You will always feel that life touching yours, that voice speaking to you, that spirit looking out of other eyes, talking to you in the familiar things she touched, worked with, loved as familiar friends. She lives on in your life and in the lives of all others that knew her." written by Angelo Patri Please know that you all are in our prayers. Friends of Sandi and Mike Bollard

Steve, Barb, Michelle, We are so sorry for your loss. Courtney was such a beautiful, sweet girl. Although our visits with you guys have been few and far in between they will always hold special places in our hearts. We, as with most people she met I'm Sure, will never forget that glorious smile of hers. She was a joy to be around. Although I know there's nothing I can say or do to ease the pain, I do want

Barb, Steve & Michelle~ I know you probably don't know me, but I am one of Mike & Sandi Bollard's nieces. I never met Courtney but when I heard about this horrible tragedy, it really hit me hard. Courtney and I are the same age, and I can only hope that I have had as great of an impact on people as she did on everyone. Just reading all of these entries makes me feel like I really missed out on someone special. Heaven gained a beautiful angel! My thoughts and many prayers are with your family.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am a niece of Mike and Sandi Bollard. I did not know Courtney but her loss is such a tragedy. No one should have their life taken at such a young age. I cannot even imagine what you are going through but I know you have a lot of people to support you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I am so sad to hear about Courtney passing. I was one of her instructors for her Freshman College Adjustment class. Courtney was a very caring and sweet individual. She touched my heart because she was always concerned of others. She always made sure everyone was included in every activity. I remember the last day of class, she was the one student who wished me good luck on my presentation for a class that evening. She was and always will

The very short time that I knew Courtney was enough to realize what a beautiful giving young woman she is. I was privledged to know her.

It's tragic when a loved one is lost during the first bloom of their life. Like a cut flower that fades so quickly without water. I'm especially sorry for those that knew her well. I don't believe I ever met Courtney, but we are related with the same last name.

Dear Barb, Steve & Michelle, I just returned home Texas. My heart just aches so much that I can't even begin to imagine what you are feeling, but what I witnessed this past week, besides being so sad was also so very awesome. God added a very beautiful angel to His family. Just knowing that you have the support of so many prayers, family's and friends, helps being back here in Iowa a little easier and hopefully life a little

I will always be grateful that I was able to attend the wake and funeral service of my beloved niece, Courtney. What a tribute to such a wonderful young woman! Even though her life was too short and her death so tragic, I rest assured that she is our special angel in heaven. God Bless all who loved and knew Courtney! Sincerely, Aunt Sandi

Barb First of all we want you to know that our sincere thoughts and sympathies are with you. Courtney was such a lovely young lady...only wish we could have seen her when she was back in Iowa for Christmas. Treasure the memories you have of her. Time does heal and our thoughts will be with you during that time. I did visit with Erica today and she said you had the support of many friends and relatives on Tuesday. So glad you have friends and family around you. Keep the faith. We love you. Uncle Ross and Aunt Janet

Dear Barb, My Dad told me and Steve about your daughter. We are devestated for you. Such a difficult thing to comprehend. We told Griffin and Lily what happend and they were very concerned for you as well. My Dad loves you very much and has told me on several occasions how much you have helped him and how wonderful he thinks you are. Thank you for being such a special person in his life. I know he will be there for you during this time. Steve and I will keep you and your family in our prayers. Caroline

Courtney's senior picture has been hanging on my refrigerator and so many times I'd look at it and think that she was such a beautiful young woman.

Last semester Courtney and i were in same college adjustment class and though we never became close friends there was something about her that i was drawn to. She had the ability to make friends without saying much but just by a smile.She was always happy to see any of her classmates at any place. I can't recall her speaking ill of anyone and that really made her different, and since she is gone she will sure be missed among her many many friends. May God bless her and rest her in heavan.

I spent three years in the CPHS band with Courtney. I can't remember a time when she didn't have a smile on her face. Courtney and I weren't really close but she always said Hi to me when I saw her. We spent a lot of time together during COOL week our junior year. I haven't seen Courtney since this summer and was shocked when I heard about her tragic death. Courtney will be missed greatly.

In all those years of chaperoning the band, I always found Courtney to be sweet, cheerful, and polite. No-one ever spoke ill of her. She was a wonderful, beautiful girl who will be missed by so many. For me, I will always remember her with a big smile on her face, because I never saw her without one. My family saw her on New Year's Eve when we ate dinner at Macaroni Grill. She gave me a big hug. Now,

I FIRST MET COURTNEY IN MY COLLEGE ADJUSTMENT CLASS, AND SOON AFTER WE DISCOVERD WE HAD U.S. HISTORY TOGETHER. COURTNEY WAS SO NICE, AND FRIENDLY, AND SWEET. WE STUDIED TOGETHER ONCE AND WALKED TO CLASS TOGETHER A FEW TIMES TOO. SHE WAS ALWAYS SO POSITIVE AND ALWAYS HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE. SHE WILL TRUELY BE MISS, BUT I KNOW THAT HEAVEN HAS FINALLY GOTTEN BACK ONE OF THE ANGELS THEY WERE MISSING.

I will always remember the sweet girl, kind-hearted girl that Courtney was. The smile that she always had in her face, did indeed, light up the room whenever she entered it. I will not forget every time she saw me, there always would be a sweet "hi Mrs. Gott" greeting. May you find comfort in knowing that she is with Jesus in Heaven and watching over us all. My thought and prayers are with you at this time. Katy Gott

I only knew Courtney for a very short time, however, from the time I have know her she has been a great associate. Courtney has always been very caring towards me and a good friend. One thing I learned from Courtney was to be open when it comes to trying new things. Even though this is a tradjic event, Courtney has brought warmth and love to many hearts and she will always be missed. Lastly, Courtney's family and friends will continue to be in prays.

Courtney was in one of my classes last semester, and lived right around the corner from me. I would always see her out on the balcony on the phone talking to someone. In the short time that I had to know her I could tell she was a very caring and compassionate person. She will be greatly missed by me and my classmates. Your family will be in my prayers as well as my classmates.

... I'm honestly in shock and I can't begin to ask God why? I was Courtney's instructor and peer-counselor during her first semester at UTA. She was an outstanding student and always made every effort to put in and give her very best. We shared several stories and thoughts with me during my office hours and I found out we had a lot in common. Courtney wasn't just another student I had in class; she was special and touched everyone

It seems like yesterday that Courtney was in my middle school band. Courtney was more than a band member -- she was an incredible human being who always looked at the positive, and shared her gift of light with others. Whenever I was having a bad day, or just needed to vent, Courtney would always calm me down and reassure me that things would be OK. Her smile was a constant, and she would never neglect to say "hi". I

My daughter, Jenny, was Courtney's roommate at UTA. During Labor Day weekend they were homesick, but had to stay in Arlington to work at Macaroni Grill. I could tell by the phone calls they were lonely in the nearly empty dorm during the holiday weekend. So, Jenny's little sister, Sarah, and I drove up to Arlington. We had a great day together. Jenny, Courtney, Sarah and I went shopping, out to eat, to Barnes and Noble, and drove around Arlington.

As Sam's "band mom," I got to know Courtney because she was such a good and special friend to Sam. I will always remember her as someone who loved doing favors for those lucky enough to be her friends, and she made me feel like she was always genuinely happy to see me in the band hall or on the band bus. She was an especially kind, conscientious, and delightful child, and my family and I deeply mourn her tragic loss.

I always looked forward to seeing Courtney's big smile when she came into my classroom. I had the honor of teaching her for several years at CPHS. She loved science and was such a leader in her class. She truly loved band. She would often ask to go help out in the band hall. She had so many friends at CPHS! It was truly my pleasure to have such a wonderful person in my class. May God strengthen and support her family and friends. Susan Lyons

Courtney was a charmer. I got to know her when I was a "band mom" at CPHS. I was a chaperone for many band trips and had to make sure all the students were there. I would only "call roll" if I didn't know a students name. On one of the trips I didn't call Courtney's name and she asked "Mrs. Green, do you know my name?" I said, "yes, your Courtney Foreman." She just smiled big as Texas. I
