    Courtney was a wonderful person who loved God, served others, and touched many lives. The loss to her family and friends is heart breaking and bewildering for sure. Still, I pray in this time of this seemingly unbearable grief God’s grace and peace gives them hope and assurance of a great reunion day in the New Creation.

    I’m so sorry to hear this. I got aquainted with Courtney at Crittenden cardiology department in Marion, KY back earlier this year as my cardiologist. I enjoyed her being my Dr. I’m sure going to miss her.
