This is my cousin Courtney. She is a very strong, gorgeous, amazing person. She was funny and crazy and most of all sincere. She had long, pefect, thick, shiny, blonde hair that i have always been obsessed with. She was an amazing gymnast. She was incredibly smart and loving. She enjoyed scary movies, like Poltergeist, and would make you watch them with her even if you cried. She like High School Musical when she was younger and always used to make up dances and sing along to the songs. She enjoyed trampolines and being the rebel she was would always climb on top of the monkey bars. She was amazing at balloon tosses and we always won. She liked to dress up. She liked to play mommy and always talked about the many children she was going to have. She was the best person and if you came to her crying her response would usually be along the lines of “Its gonna be okay cuz I love you.” She had the best, most unique laugh I’ve ever heard. She was an amazing teacher, and taught me how to both do a back walkover and ride a two wheeler bike (with no training wheels). She loved life and everything it had to offer.
Rest In Peace Courtney Quinn. I can see now why God would choose you out of everyone to become one of his many little angels. Your amazing fight with brain cancer should not take away from the amazing, strong person that you are. I’ll always remember you for you and nothing will change that. Keep on smiling baby girl. And while I’ll miss you, I’m going to celebrate your 16 years of life rather than morn them.
You give me strength, faith, and most of all you give me hope. I’ll love you forever Cornstalk, and I want to thank you for everything.
I will always have my Courage for Courtney.
