It's no secret princess that I think about you every day, or that there's not a minute that goes by that I don't miss you, but right now is one of those moments that I just wonder how I go on without you. It's your birthday in about 45 minutes...You and your sister will be 21. Its so hard trying celebrate this day knowing I can never celebrate it with you again. I can't help but wonder what you would be doing right now or where you would be in your life. I miss not being able to watch you continue to grow into the beautiful young women you were becoming. There are days when I just don't know how I get out of bed...I love you every moment of every day...And I miss you more than I could ever explain. I love you princess and I wish...I just wish I could go back in time and have you here with me and the rest of us

Sweetheart...I miss you so much...It's been two years since the accident and yet it feels like yesterday. I can't begin to tell you how hard it's been knowing I just don't have you in my life, to see your beautiful smile, hear you laugh, and just to be able to talk to you and tell you I love you everyday! There is this sadness and heartache that just won't go away.

My pretty princess, today we spent the day honoring you and others that gave someone the gift of life. It was full of alot of tears and heartache. As proud as I am that you were able to save a few other people, my heart nor my head understands why you were chosen. You should have been able to live you life alot longer and been given the chance to grow into the beautiful women I know you would've been. I miss you more than you or anyone knows or understands. There is never a day that goes by that I don't think of you and wish you were still with your family. You are loved and missed every moment of every day. My life or our family will never be the same without you, princess!

Hey Courtney, I am so sorry its been so long since i have wrote you. I have been so busy you would be so surprised. lol I am actually in the navy and in cali. I wish i could have seen this. I miss you so much. I know we only had about 5 summers together but it felt like so much longer then that. We would hang out all summer then it would end, but then you guys would be back and we would pick up like it was nothing. you were one of my bestfriends court, and i wish you were still here. I have been thinking about you alot lately. you were such a great person i changed my life. I love and miss you so much. I know you are up there watching over everyone and we will meet again. thank you for being such a good friend.

My beautiful Court,
I have not been on here in a very long time. I've tried not to because of the pain. But went home for a long visit and came back with such a grief again because nothing is the same.
August is approaching and I dread it because it's when you and Kyle would be here. I always could count on you my princess. Never having my own children, but you made me feel special. Now that's gone...
Watch over us Court. Miss you more than ever...your Alaine forever.

So right now court i'm in school making a scrapbook. I needed to find pictures of you so i came on here and started balling my eyes out when i saw the pictures of everyone + me & you singing at my grams party. Your on my apprication page & my Music page. I put jesus take the wheel for the song and your pictures are on both pages. I got this poem for you boobie..never thought i would come up with such a thing. But i miss you so much and i wish you were here with me right now.
Well here the poem goes:
"You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your backon tomorrow and live for yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Courtney Leigh Engle;
Iloveyou & miss you with all my heart babygirl!

hey court! i miss yu so much, it's unbelievable. i wish yu were here to see couriana:) shhe is gorgeous & her smile just fills yur heart! i wish yu were here so we could hang out togetheer & yu could teach me some trick fur field hockey but ik fur a fact yu were with me this year when i was playin. we may not have won any haha, but yu sure did help mee:) it would just be the best if i could here yur voice again or just rewind time & make sure that yu weren't in that car or make sure i was atleast able to tell yu i love yuu. i miss yu soo much.. this experience brought our family so much closer bc we really learned that yu never kno when someone could be gone. i yell @ everyone that says they hate their relative or something bc i don't want them to go through what our family did & remember that the last thing they said about that person was they hate them & not i love them. i will never ever say i hate any family member & i'll make sure i make right choices & be careful & i learned that from yuu. ik what my goals are & no one will stop me ffrom reaching them, i'm very determined. i just wish i could sit down & talk to yu like i do bri noow. i'm happy that our family is closer i just wish this didn't happen to make us closer & yu were still here with us & all of us were together again. i love yu court! i miss yu so mucch!! everyday i think of yu & sometimes i cry but than i think, what would court want me to be doin right now, she'd prob tell me to suck it up:) haha. i love yu court, i miss yuu!

The last 6 weeks have been rough for me. I miss you every day...and the holidays always make it much hardier. Its so hard to celebrate when we've all been together for the last 18 years. It just isn't the same without sharing it with you too. Bri and Shane decorated our tree - they hung everyone of your ornaments. And you know, you have a lot! Sorry Princess, I just couldn't do it. I definitely could've done with out the holidays this year...and probably the years to come. I just can't stop thinking about you. I've been having so many dreams about you...they are so real The other night I had a dream about chasing were wearing your little blue dress coat w/ the black collar. Do you remember it? I believe I have a picture of grammy great holding you on her lap in will have to ask her too! I am going to look for that picture but not right away. I think I would cry too much. Anyway, you were running and laughing w/ you little curls just flopping around...I think you were having fun making me chase you. I woke up wishing I could go back to sleep, but I was also trying to remember if that was a real memory that I was dreaming about. I love you Court...this next couple of weeks are going to be real tough too...I'm still in disbelief and I'm going to wake up to this nightmare...but I just can't believe it's going to be a year. I'm so heartbroken, I just don't think its going to get any better. Not a day goes by when I don't shed tears thinking about you...You have my heart with you princess...I can't tell you how much I love you!

i remember when i first met you i knew that we would be friends. you were always a fun person to be around. never had anything negative to say. there was never a dull moment when i was with would always grab life by the horns. we had so much fun in alaines pool. we would always play marco polo. we would always sit on alines furniture wet [she never liked that]. i still like the play-doh incident you could make something so small so fun to do. you know that night we never got to play monopoly. i remember that time you dared me to jump in the lake or river or whatever it was behind jim and sharons rv you said and i qoute "theres no alligators if there is ill get you out" and me giving in i got in the water it was nasty and smelly nd then i got stuck in the water and then you fell in trying to help me out cuz we didnt want to get caught we all came back laughing. if i had to pick a favorite time i had with you that will be it. you never mad me mad even when you kept playing beautiful girls omg. but i miss you so much there will never be another you you were one of a kind. even though i only talked to you every summer i felt like i known you for a lifetime. my summer will never be the same now. i love you so much.i miss you

hey court!! wats up? we miss you sooooo much the summers suck without you. geez its been a while, wat two days before the nightmare i try very hard each day to believe was just a dream? well i hope you know ill never forget the day you came over with kyle to help me and my sisters set up the rock band oh man it was so funny because none of us understood it except for kyle. and then we played monopoly for a while. you are a true friend and i am greatful you were in my life in some way because true friends are hard to find harder to leave and impossible to forget. ill never forget you. i love you like a cousin and while other girls are praying for a love that is true when i pray at night i thank god for you.You would be so happy briana had couriana tuesday september 29,2009 she is just beautiful she looks almost exactly like you. but you probably already know that from watching over us. i hope you and kyle are having a blast on those white cloud beaches that go on forever. i miss you dearly and hope to see you soon. remember i love you more than yesterday but not as much as tommorow. love you forever. -liz

well my love, I think back remembering that nite your loving mom called to tell us about the accident. Now it's almost the end of September and your mom's birthday will be here soon. It also means you'll be in heaven almost 9 months.It still seems like yesterday and a terrible nightmare. So many things have changed since then, but not all the love we all have for you. Before long our little Couriana will be arriving.
I know you'll be there in spirit praising our new addition to the family. Pop and I will be heading to PA in a few more days. I know the first time I hold our little one, I'll be thinking of you. I miss you

Hey Princess...Missing you very much this week!!! I can't believe its been so long - 7 mos. Everything reminds me of you. Its unbelievable. I just watched this movie "The Family Stone" and at the very end it made me realize how hard this Christmas is going to be on me and the family! Just decorating the tree is going to be very hard ... you have so many ornaments ... I don't even want to think about it! All I want for Christmas is too have my whole family back! Not a day goes by that I don't think about that horrible night and wish there was a way I could've protected you and Kyle. I miss you Court every moment of every day. Life is never going to be the same with out your beautiful smile, your quirky attitude and your laughter!

Hi Princess...I just wanted to say I miss you with every breath that I take...I can't believe its been 6 months...I feel like this nightmare has just begun. I replay everything in my head, every moment since the accident occurred...every word all the doctors said...I just can't get pass it. I dream about you a lot...thank you...I get to hear your voice, hug you and just talk to you...I miss you every moment of every day...We are all trying to get on each day, but you wouldn't believe how much of an impact you not being here makes on all of us. Court, your laughter, spirit, and goofiness is so missed...I hope you knew how much you were loved and how much you are being missed. It goes without saying that I wish life was a movie and I could reverse time and have you back...Life is never going to be the same and I will be always cry and be sad each day that you won't be in my life. I love and miss you every moment of every day...

Good Morning my love,
Well, princess, here we are again. I'm missing you so terribly. Couldn't wait to go to Myrtle Beach for some family time and relaxing but that was a mistake.
Listening to some people complain about nonsense was and is driving me up a wall. But then I'm doing the same. My nerves are shot. You must be having a field day up there watching all of our lunacy!
Nothing is the same though. Now August is around the corner and you would be coming for your summer visit...and my heart just aches for you. It’s what I always looked forward too…
Keep watching over us all, sweetheart, as we all struggle to make sense of losing you.
Uncle Lenny and I so miss you...all our love for every and always.

Hey babygirl...Cant believe its been 5 months since we got to see your beautiful face...We all miss you soooo much..Espicially since summer is here. Been spending lots of time with the family and wish you were here..I love you and miss you every second of every minute of every day!!!!
July 6th, 2009
Well my little love, tomorrow you'll have been gone for five months. The pain and angish of losing you hasn't eased for any of us. When I talk to my friends of a story I want so much to share about you, I say your name and I fill up with such tremendous grief, that I can't talk. You were such a big part of our life, I don't ever think it will leave, nor do I want it to. Your Mom shares some of the dreams she's been having of you. and I want so much to console her, but I can't find the words that will help her pain. I feel the warmth of her dreams about you in my heart, but when we say goodbye my heart just breaks and then the tears flow like a river. So I found this little saying and I think of it often, "Close your eyes think of me, In your heart I'll always be". And there you will always stay. Oh by the way I'm texting now, a little to late for you and me, so lol i luv u 2!

Hey princess! I'm thinking about you a lot this week, not that it's different than most weeks. However, its going to be 5 months that you have been missing from our lives & its also the 4th of July! We always went to Wendy & Richies for their big party. I can't do it this year. I know I'd be watching for you. You were always with us for this party. You wanted to spend time w/ Kyra. And sometimes its just so hard seeing your friends. They make me miss you even more. Everything we do revolves around you and us missing you. Our lives will never be the same, Court! We try so hard to believe you are in a better place, but we can't seem to get over the whys & hows God could take a special person like you. I love you so much it hurts everyday that I can't see or talk to you...I just want you to come home to me & say it was all a nightmare. As I go through each day with out you, I don't see how it can possibly get any easier. I love sissy & shane just as much as I ever loved you, but I have such a hole in my heart right now that no one seems to be able to fill! They all try so hard to keep me from losing it, that sometimes I think I've been selfish & really haven't been there for them. But I just can't help it, Court...I just don't understand how this all happened to you.! I love you and I miss'll always be my princess!

Happy 19th birthday, our princess.
Can't believe the diffence between 05/24/90 and 05/24/09.
But for those precious "almost" 19 years, you will always be such a precious gift God gave to me and Uncle Lenny. I treasure all of our moments together, princess, and you will be in our hearts FOREVER. And I thank Mommy and Daddy everyday for allowing us to love you so much; it was an honor they gave us and we will treasure all the remaining days of our life. You were everything I would have wanted if we had been blessed with our own child. Thank you again, our Princess, Courtney....may your birthday in Heaven be as beautiful as you deserve and more...I can only imagine! (Give Gram & Pop a great big huge & kiss, oh and Mandy and of course our Kyle!)
With so much love, your Uncle Lenny & Alaine.....

I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I had a dream the other night that we went to prom... but we didnt have dresses? It was hilarious. Today me and Clarissa went to visit you. We put birthday candels all over and tacked some balloons to the ground. A lot of them popped in our faces... we figured you were probably getting a kick out of that. Were going to come see you every Sunday. I miss you so much giiirl.
I hope youre having a GREAT day in heaven, celebrate hard (; Kyle better be taking care of you my love, I know he is. Well I'll see you Sunday.

Happy Birthday, Princess! Today is not the same without you, love. Its so hard to celebrate this day.

I've started to write this a hundred times before, but I could never finish. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and my bud. It is necessary to remind myself everyday that you are both truly gone and my heart breaks all over again. I tried to stay strong to hold it together for everyone else, but that just made it worse for me. I've finally realized that I must embrace the memories of good times and remain thankful that I was blessed with those. Although I'll never know the reason why you both were taken from us while I am on this earth, I do know this...You were a truly exceptional person. Kyle adored you with all of his heart, as did the rest of our family. You had a radiance that brightened the lives of everyone around you. It was impossible to be in a bad mood when you were around. Though you have gone on to a higher place, this same radiance will help your family and friends get through the hardest of days. Please continue to watch over us as we make this difficult journey. I love you and miss you both!

I remember when you and Bri first came home from the hospital.I thought what a wonderful gift.As you and Bri got older,watching Uncle Steve and Uncle Jeff walking you up the alley to the playground. How they loved you so.Then you got bigger,running around and smiling with those curls bouncing was a wonder to be seen. All the hearts you've touched you might have never none. I'm sure you can feel the love where you are now.
I can still see you now in the back yard the first time we gave you ice cream, you had this big grin and licking your lips. Then we had all those trips to Lancaster and Harrisburg.Your Pop would hold your hand when you'd have to get a new immpression of your teeth. We'd always stop to eat afterwards to make it all better. How about when you were taking dancing lessons. You had Pop out in the back yard doing your dance routine with you. What a good laugh we had that day. we continued to watch you grow up enjoying soccer and become quite famous in field hockey. You became a wonderful young woman, seeing you in all your pictures of your proms, You and Kyle looked so wonderful together. How
you glowed and enjoyed life. When you would come to Florida and come to visit Pop and I and we'd go out fishing or just take a boat ride,and
seeing you sun bath on the pool deck.
The best was when you could finally get to drive the golf cart Oh, yes and the memories we have of you decorating our anniverary cake.
How excited and proud of you we were to see you graduate and know you were heading to college in the fall.
Our lives are full of events but losing you wasn't one we were ready for. We can't beleive your gone, but in my heart I know we'll love you forver and when it's time we'll see you again.
All Our Love

Hi Princess, I have to say I love you & miss you more every day! Who ever told me it would get easier is so wrong! It's Mothers Day! Its my first Mothers Day with out you! 18 years, Court! There wasn't a moment today I didn't think about what a wonderful daughter you are! I miss you princess more than words can express...there is not a day that I haven't shed tears for you...No one needs to tell me I still have your sister and brother...I know that...I'm probably more protective than ever...But I don't have you and your a big piece of a puzzle that will never be finished again! I just want you back! Everyday I just want you back! I just want to wake up and have you back! I've never been this selfish before but all I think about is what I've lost and what I'm's bad but Princess I never ached for something so bad until now...I miss you...i love you for always

Well, Sweetheart, here we are. Another day. Another long day. It seems to be unanimous, that the pain without you is getting worse.
When I hear Mommy's pain, Gramma's , Cora's, everyone's…it is so unbearable. Before I would need to be there for everyone – to be the listener, the shoulder to lean on, the helper, the fixer, and help them thru this but can't seem to get passed my own selfish pain. It's so hard because I keep coming back to why God allowed you & Kyle to be taken from us. It's no wonder we all question it. But then I stop - even in this heart wrenching pain, and realize how could He not need someone like you both - with your gifts, your spirits. And what if there was no God, then that would mean there would be no seeing you and Kyle and Gramma Great EVER again. And we can't accept that...that can't be what our lives are meant for. There must be more beyond here. So to hold on, we have to trust God's plans, hard as it is, and prayer for strength to get beyond this horrible grief. And with your beautiful smile in my mind every second of every day, I will try harder to make sure that I too would be worthy to be welcomed Home…and be with all of you one day! That is the hope we must all cling too.

Oh, and on the lighter side – please knock it off with the snakes! I've seen enough already…
Love You Most - your Alaine

I miss you so much hurts everytime I think about you and how you were taken so suddenly from us. Its been 3 months now and the heartache is just getting worse the longer we are apart. I've been falling apart the last couple of days. I have never felt this kind of heartache in my life...I love you with all my heart forever. Not a day goes by that I don't wish I could take back time and still have you with us.

Hey baby girl...I still don't understand all of this...I miss you sooo much...The hurt doesn't seem to e getting easier..Only harder everyday...Its been three months already and still unbelievable....Love you and miss you....

I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too,
I think of you in silence I often speak your name
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye, you were
gone before we knew it, and only
God knows why
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane, I’d walk
right up to heaven and bring you
home again.

Our Dearest Courtney,
Well our little princess, today it's 3 month's since you left us. I truly don't know how we'll
ever be able to get on in our lives without you. You are so missed by everyone. We see you in everything we do and everywhere we go.But for today we will go on because it's your little brother's birthday. He's 18 today. I'm sure you must feel his love and hurt today, and
Mommy and Daddy's. Every memory we have of you is a blessing and someday we'll all be together again.

Hey Princess...Mommy can't believe it's been this long that we talked. I'm thinking of you today...ALOT! Daddy and I went to the flea market this morning, and we see an pair of twins. They were identical, blonde and curly! What reminded me of you was the curls but yet it was the stroller too! It seems like yesterday when I had you and sissy...Not almost 19 years ago. I'm still hurting - I'll always be hurting for you! It's not fair...and right now I don't think I will ever understand or accept Gods plan! I'm so selfish...I want you here with me. I'm not sure where my faith lands right now honey...he made a huge mistake. There are so many other people that don't care where their lives lead them tomorrow, they never learn, and they just don't care, but God takes YOU!( and KYLE) Just not sure what to believe anymore. I am missing you more and more every day. I want what I can't have...I want to hear you talk, I want to hear you laugh, I want to hear your quirky personality, and I want to see your beautiful face. I want you! I love you my princess and there will never be a day a don't think about you or miss you til my heart aches!

Hey Courtney! Just thinking about you. Alison and I booked our flight the other day go down ALAINE and Uncle Lenny's. Just remembering times and how it's probably going to a little strange not to see you down there when we go. The time's we have been there, you and Bri were always there. Our partners in crime! It will be different, but don't worry I am sure we will be talking about you! Good of course! But I'm sure you'll be laughing with us or at us! <3 love you much!

Pop and I went to Disney with your Uncle Jim and Aunt Dawn and the kids! It was a beautiful day, except for standing in line for one of the rides with this slendor long dark hair beauty standing in front of me. All I could think of was you, I thought my heart would explode with the pain I felt. Pop and I miss you terribly. I know you have to be walking along the beach holding hands with kyle in heaven, so I look up to the sky and hope your looking back and smiling.You are with us always. I wish so I could've hugged you one last time or heard you say "Hey Gram" . At least I had a hand squeeze before you left us. Who's going to decorate our anniversary cake when Pop and I are married 50 years!

My precious Court,
Today is not a good day; not sure why but I especially miss you again today. It's a beautiful day and maybe that is why, this kind of day always makes me think of you. I can see you and Kylie in the pool, drinking your pina colada's (pouting because we wouldn't give you alcohol!), but still like little kids with those silly mustache straws from Taco Bell! How you both could get me to laugh...I just don't know how I will ever genuinely laugh again. And I can see you both plain as day cooking together in our kitchen right now. What a beautiful couple...truly meant for one another! So wish you were here, just can't believe this yet.

But thank you too sweetheart for finding my Pandora dolphin charm on Easter morning and placing it in my jewelry box! There is no other explanation...
I so love you most my angel girl…and please, you and Kyle, be by our sides as much as possible but especially Mommy and Cora.

You changed our Kyle's life. You kept him out of trouble. I remember the day in court when Bre started with you and you cried because you were the better person and you were so heart broken with what she said but yet you always had it in your heart to forgive. You will always be a part of our family. We all LOVE YOU dearly. I so wish it was your wedding we all attended. There is nothing I could even think about you other than what a good person you were. Also what a kind heart you had. I hope to see you and Kyle once again. I LOVE YOU and miss you BOTH!!!

Dear Courtney,
I came across this poem and new I had to share it with all who new and loved you so!

Always and Forever

Why are you crying? Do you think that I'm gone?
I haven't left, I'm where I belong. anytime you are lonely, anytime you are sad, anytime your heart breaks, anytime you are mad-all you have to do is close your eyes and I'll be there with you.
You see the world may take my body but that's all it can do. When jesus died upon the cross, he took away our sins. He conquered death so we can live in heaven where life begins.
Don't stop the memory of the time we shared.
It's God's way to help you through,, take time to laugh when life gets hard, the way we used to do! A smell? A touch? The morning sun? They all will help you see, I'm still there I never left, Now smile once more for me. Live each day, keep looking up, My life not in vane. I finished the task I was born to do.That's why I
couldn't remain.
Until I see you-I love you forever and Always

I am loving you and thinking about you today, and I am really just sad knowing we will never have you with us during the holidays anymore. I can't tell you how hard it is here with out you... I am missing you every minute of every day! I love you Court....

Our Dear Courtney,
I'm sure your up in heaven with that smile of smiles, surrounded by all our loved ones that have left before you. I'm sorry I haven't wrote this sooner, but the heartache of having you gone, saying your name, looking at your pictures followed by so many tears was more than I could bear. I remember how excited you were about driving the golf cart last time you and Kyle came to visit. There are so many wonderful memories we have of you being in our lives for 18 years. I know as time passes we'll have more smiles than tears as we recall all the wonderful times you gave us. We miss you terribly and that void will never be filled.
Sharon Dorris (Grandmother)

Hello my sweet princess...I can't believe its been two months since I last heard you talk or laugh and seen your beautiful face or smile. Its so difficult, Court! I miss you more and more as the time goes by. Everybody tries to keep me busy, but there is not a moment when my heart is breaking for you. I dream about you all the time. Sometimes the dreams are of you as a little girl and then of you as the beautiful young women you turned out to be. I wake up wishing that this nightmare never happened and you will be sitting there laughing at me. I miss you babygirl. I love you always...Mommy

For 18 years you grew on evryone who knew you. We are having a hard time here without you Court....Please give us the strength we need...If anyone can do it you can...Just remember you are thought about every second of every minute of everyday!!!!!!!!!!!LOVE YOU BABY GIRL!!!

Hey Court, its been a while, but everyday i still think of you! I keep a picture of you and Kyle from one of our proms right next to bed on my nightstand..I havent found the perfect frame for it yet, lol...Caitie Ko and I came to visit you on Valentines Day, the flowers are obviously gone, but that little white angel is still there! I know this because Michael Pickle and I were just there the other day to see you and Kyle! It was Mike's first time there since... he wanted to say hello :) We all miss you both dearly...and I know you and Kyle (side by side, like always,lol)are there to watch over us all the time. The other day I walked into my room and then slammed the door! Later I walked back in and I saw your picture on the floor, i know you were telling me to come see you so I finally made it there!! I'm sure i could ramble on all day to you about things but we'll end here for today...goodbye for now, but forever,

Love Always

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

Hey Court.
Its been almost two months since you have been gone. I can't help to keep looking at your pictures. I just can't believe that your gone. I just see how much everyone misses you. I no that we weren't really getting along. But i miss you. It hurts because not to much before the accident Mikey told me that you and Kyle wanted to hang out with us, but idk I regret not going. Everytime i'm out front and i hear a car pass i always have the habit to look and see if its kyle's car passing by. But not anymore. Its so hard to see your brother up at the house. He just always looks so heart broken in his eyes. And catie.. i no she misses you i just cant belive it. Well kid i really miss u.

I'm missing you today alot, princess! The weather is getting warm and everyone is starting to talk about the camping trips on the quads and our annual camping trip to the state park...and it just really saddens me that you aren't going to be able to be there with us anymore. Court, I'm not sure I could do it. I try so hard to find the strength to do these things that we've always done and it just doesn't seem right to do it without you. Its not only the camping trips...Easter is coming and I've always cooked all of our holiday dinners...and the last three years Kyle's been there with us too. I remember how you always had to have macaroni and cheese...if I didn't make it, you'd be there I'd go to the store to get the stuff I needed, so my little princess would have it for her dinner. I told daddy I didn't think I could make any dinners...It would hurt too much to see my table so empty...God, I miss you! I know everyone does...its not just me even though I can't seem to focus on anyone else. I never felt this kind of heartbreak, court...its so consuming! I just can't get over how unfair it is that such a wonderful, happy girl could be taken from her family. I love you so much princess...

We little knew that morning that God was going to all your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Court went to the beach last Saturday; you and Kyle should have been there with me, since it was Spring Break at LCCC. Today we would probably be taking you to the airport! All our special's just so hard. Miss you so much. Your Alaine... <3 <3 <3

Hey Court. I think about you every day, just like every one else does. I remember all the good times we had together and its so weird to think that it's not going to be the 3 of us anymore. I'm so sorry for not being able to say good-bye to you in person. It seriously is something I will always regret. This was the last thing I expected. But, I know Nana Engle is watching over you and hopefully not giving you "one eyed bob" haha :] I miss you and I love you. <3

So Courtney, you've left this life for a little over a month now and I can't get you out of my head. I've been doing somethings for school at Hanover Green every week and I keep telling myself that I am going to stop over to see you, but then it's like what do I say to you. You know we all miss you and I'm sure you only want to hear what's been going on with everyone. It's hard to think that you cannot say anyhing back, laugh, or make those silly faces....

Hey babygirl! I'm thinking about you and missing you. I can't imagine a day that I won't ever feel this way. Silly things that I never noticed before remind me of you everyday. I was out for dinner with Heather and Kristen and a little girl with dance leotards came in with her mom... The little girl even had a head of curls like you. I thought of you at once, all your leotards and time, Bri and Shane grew up way too fast! I wish I could've found a way to keep you all little, then I could've always been around to protect you. I miss you so much its undescribable!

hey Court...Its been over a month since you've been gone and it is not getting any easier. I just wish all of this was a nightmare and we'd all wake up. You touched everyone who knows you in a special way and it is going to take a while for all of us to come to terms with this. please help us all heal and know that you will never be forgotten..NEVER. We all love you and miss you so much.

I've been dreaming about you lately...They are so real. I see you. I hear you. The one dream I had...I caught you jumping up and down on your bed...your curls flying. You were laughing until you seen me and knew you were in trouble. I started to tell you..."how many times do i have to tell you not to jump on your are too big & you are gonna break your bed". And in the middle of the dream I remembered you were gone... I woke up crying...Court If you could be here with me today...we'd both jump on your bed and I wouldn't care if i'd have to buy you a new bed every week... It also reminded me of all the times dad & I lectured you about the future...we just wanted you to have the best...We always believed in you. Now I wish we would have paid more attention to the "todays" because now we don't have anymore of those...and i'm just so sad everyday...Some people tell me it will get easier but I don't see how...the more days that go by are more days I don't see that sparkling personality that i miss so much. We have so many pictures of you that capture your true personality that they all make me miss you. I love you Court...and not a day goes by that I don't love and miss you more than yesterday...I wish for the impossible everyday - for someone to wake me up from this horrible nightmare and to give my family back what they miss the most...and thats you!

My beautiful Court,
I promised Uncle Lenny to allow me a month to mourn you and then I promised I would start to pick myself up and live life again like you would expect us too.
But my love, it seems to be getting harder everyday, not easier. You truly were such a gift. You & Kyle made me feel so secure in your love for us. I truly believed you would always be by our side today and be with us until it was our time to leave; and that's how it was supposed to be. Now I think of Spring break coming up and I knew you and Kyle planned to come down here then. But now what, Court?
I'm trying so hard to draw on my faith...and do know that in time God will get me and all of us that so LOVE you thru this. PLEASE! So your new job as one of God's special angels is watch over all of us, to help us heal, and to move forward, princess. And if anyone has such a gift, it would be you need to get moving on all of us honey!
Love you so much more than these words can ever say...
LOVE YOU MOST,your Alaine forever & always <3 <3 <3

Hey Princess...I can't believe its been a month since you were taken from us. It feels like yesterday honey...I miss you so much honey. I miss seeing your beautiful face, hearing your voice, and just talking to you. I miss our girl dates...I remember the last one - shopping and the movies...we went to see "Bride Wars". I wish...I wish we could've had more time princess. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and cry. My heart just won't stop aching Court. I love you princess yesterday, today, and for eternity!

Hey Princess...I'm thinking about you alot today. There was a memorial banner yesterday hung for you, kyle, pauly d., erin, and eddie. We drove by it today to see it. It was a very nice thing that was done, but I just keep hoping that someone is going to wake me up from this nightmare... I have a such a hard time believing that this could actually happen to such a wonderful girl like you. I keep asking myself "why?" I probably won't ever have an answer and I'll never will have the answer that makes sense to me. I miss you babygirl...Love you always, Mommy

Courtney, I haven't had the honor of knowing you. That makes me sad. I know your going to be missed greatly. I'm a friend from your mommy's past. You and your sister where born on the same day, month and year of my son and when something like this happens to our children it's wrong! We sometimes take life for granted, not realizing that it may be our last! I will always think about you on your shared birthday's. I must say you are a" Sweet Angel " that was taken away much too soon. Fly with the Angel's baby!!!!!! All my love Angel & Family xoxoxo

Courtney I still remember back in 8th grade how we have to sprint from my house to yours so you could make it home before your mom called so you could get all your chores done. Or how about Mr. Carey hating on us in Enlgish every year!He even had to seperate me you and Steve haha. We have so many memories that I'll never forget. I took Bri to the mall the other day and we check out some maternity clothes that will be a sight to see. You better be keeping Kyle in line cause God knows he needs you to do that. My heart truly goes out to your whole family, I know they are missing you terribly, but I also know you're watching down on them and everyone. Im gunna miss you girl, you were unlike anyone else.

Courtney...I miss you so much...I was only 16 when you were born and remember how excited I was that I was going to be an Aunt TWICE for the first time...When mommy went to the hospital to have you Grammy told be to go to school...When I got there, I called Poppy and he came and got me and took me to the hospital. I was a part of you from day one because mommy lived with us when you were babies. I helped feed you and Bri everynight when you were little babies. I loved you both so much..When Mommy moved in with Daddy I was devestated. I cried..As I am crying for you now...I was in college then and came over to see you two every single day..During lunch...everytime I had a free moment I was there playing with you and Bri. Grammy used to tell me I was spending too much time with you two. I hurt so much for you now and I am glad I spent all my time with you when you were younger. Please watch over us and know that not a day goes by without me thinking about you and loving you...Love you always, Aunt Stacey

I've been thinking about you all the time...I miss you! And honey, just so you know, I loved you from the moment I found out I was pregnant! You've heard this story probably a billion times... But I will never forget when I went for my first ultrasound. I was just past four months pregnant. I laid on the table for the tech to do the ultrasound and after a few minutes I was very sick to my stomach. And Court, I mean sick! I thought I was going to throw up right on the tech. I told her and she apologized that it was taking so long....It normally doesn't take this long, but she had to measure two babies. Yep you heard it...I heard it! TWO! You should've seen daddy's face when I went back to the waiting room to tell him. We blamed all his brothers and sisters. They all jinxed us. Pop-pop was a twin, no one else had the twins, so daddy, the baby, had to be the one. Oh, but the best was when I went home to tell Gram & Pop Dorris. I'll never forget when I showed the the picture of Baby A...Then I whipped out the picture of Baby B. I think we shocked everyone. TWINS! We were doubly blessed! My life changed forever. And now Court...Its changed again forever! I love you, princess, for always!

Hey princess, Mommy's having a bad weekend. Daddy and I went on the quad today for a ride, it wasn't the same. Can you believe mommy was actually afraid to go up the power line? You are probably laughing! We've done it tons of times. And for some reason, I was terrified this time. There we were with all our friends and we turned around because I'm having a panic attack. Of course, dad was mad at me...and guess what, I cried! Now I know you are laughing. Oh honey, I miss you. I'm having such a hard time with losing you. I think about you all the time. Its so hard not too. I'm trying so hard, Court, to think of all the good memories we all had together. But right now all I could think about is all the time we won't have together. I love you and I always will. And I miss you more than words can express.

I just wish it wasnt you. You were one of the best people I have ever met. You were always there for me. When I had something big to talk to you about, we went into elaines closest, LMAO. Or when you and bri were in the pool and you pulled me in with sweats on. So many memories. I love and miss you so much. You will always be in my heart. You will always be my bestfriend

Our Courtney,
We always wanted to watch over you - looking forward to your future, dreaming of what we knew you were growing into...and so, so proud of you! But now you are able to watch over Uncle Lenny and me. Though we want you back with us, we know you are a special angel now to guard & watch over us all.
Love you and miss you every second of every minute of every day...

On May 24, 1990 my life changed forever when you and Bri were born. I fell so in love with you both that there was never any turning back!

Thru the years you have brought us so much joy. Your beautiful smile, wonderful spirit, always light up a room. All of the times we had in PA will always be treasured. Then we made the difficult decision to move to Florida, but showing you, Bri, and Gram where our new life was going, you naturally loved it all! Always wanting to come down… the wonderful memories we made here in Florida, will have to carry us thru until we meet again.

You were my treasure and always kept our bond strong! I’m so glad I was able to talk to you that last night. I will hear your cheerful, laughing voice forever! How excited you were to become an Aunt and Godmother…you couldn’t wait to buy the baby clothes! Though our new addition will now have to hear all about you, our new baby will come to know you as if you were still here!

Our heart so aches for you, our precious girl, but Uncle Lenny and I know that when it is our turn to leave this earthly life, you, Kyle, Gramma Great, Pop Great, and Mandy will be standing next to our Heavenly Father, waiting to welcome us with welcome arms.

None of us will ever be the same without you; but we are all better because of you!

We love you MOST sweetheart!
Your Alaine & Uncle Lenny
