“This last year has been one of the hardest parts of my life. Courtney was a beautiful young woman, not only on the outside but on the inside too.”

“She was an extremely talented, kind and loving person and a wonderful mum to her young son. We as a family miss her more and more as time goes by. She would be so proud of her little boy and how much he has come along. I am his sole carer, which is hard at times when trying to grieve, whilst seeing Courtney in him.”
